What to do with e-toll gantries?

Motorists put forward their suggestions for what should be done with the e-toll gantries.

Gantries have become a part of Gauteng's landscape.

JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng motorists are putting forward their suggestions for what should be done to the e-toll gantries if the controversial project is cancelled.

On Saturday, the North Gauteng High Court granted an interdict against the implementation of the project.

The ruling means a full review must be heard in court before the project is implemented.

In the meantime, the 45 gantries on Gauteng highways will remain offline.

There are over 100 suggestions posted on Toll Free GP's Facebook page.

Some said the gantries should be sold for scrap metal to build homes for the poor.

Others said they should be used to hang corrupt politicians.

More practical suggestions include using the gantries to monitor speeding and fight crime, because the cameras are already in place.

Other motorists said they should be used as advertising boards to help recover some of the millions spent on erecting them.

A popular post suggested turning the gantries into giant car wash.

One gantry will rinse cars, the next one will release foam and another will be used to dry vehicles.
