Motlanthe to reveal e-toll details

Government plans to appeal a court judgment halting the implementation of the controversial e-tolling project.

The e-tolling fight continues

JOHANNESBURG - Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe is currently chairing a special committee into e-tolling which is expected to announce its progress soon.

Government on Thursday said that it planned to appeal the urgent North Gauteng High Court interdict which halted the implementation of the controversial project.

The committee will lay bare all the facts about the controversial project.

Government spokesman Jimmy Manyi said Motlanthe will address the project's history, legality and costing structure.

He said all will be revealed in terms of who benefited from the tenders and why the current model was chosen.

"Everything is going to be put on the table," confirmed Manyi.

Meanwhile, the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (OUTA) said it received three boxes of documents from the South African National Roads Agency Limited in preparation for a court ordered review of the system.

"I think it's important that this does go to full review and everything come out," the alliance's Wayne Duvenage told Eyewitness News .

Government's appeal will however have to be heard first, if the court allows it.

It is not yet clear whether this will impact on the review that will be heard on a court appointed date.
