Gov to hear e-toll concerns

The Constitutional Court this week gave Sanral the go-ahead for the controversial system.

JOHANNESBURG - Government said on Saturday, it will start the final round of talks with stakeholders about e-tolls next week.

This comes after the Constitutional Court overturned an interdict, giving the South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) the go-ahead for the controversial system, pending the outcome of a High Court review in November.

Sanral has not indicated what its plans are over the next two months.

The Presidency said it will meet with representatives from the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (OUTA) on Tuesday to discuss their reservations about the system.

Spokesperson Thabo Masebe said government has also noted the public's concerns about the cost of e-tolling.

He said this will be addressed during next week's meetings.

The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) is adamant e-tolling will not go ahead and is expected to meet with government at a later stage.

Tuesday's talks with OUTA are scheduled to be held at the Union Buildings in Pretoria.
