Sanral yet to respond to interdict
Sanral is yet to respond after an interdict halted the e-toll system.
JOHANNESBURG - There was still no word on Wednesday morning on whether South African National Roads Agency (Sanral) and government planned to challenge a court interdict issued against Gauteng's controversial e-tolling system.
At the weekend the North Gauteng High Court halted the multi-billion rand project, so a full review could be heard.
Economists spent the past few days analysing the impact of the interdict, considering the review may only wrap up in 2013.
Pressure is mounting on Sanral to respond to the interdict.
The Transport Department and the National Treasury both asked for time to study the judgment.
Some economists warned that the e-tolling saga could make those in charge look weak and divided.
Standard Bank economist Goolam Ballim said the review must be comprehensive and separate facts from public opinion.
"As a nation, we have to be careful to not allow popular opinion to overt what may be a good choice."
The review is expected to start in several months time.
