New e-toll tariffs gazetted today
Once the new tolls are published, the public will have thirty days to comment on them.
JOHANNESBURG - New proposed tariffs for the Gauteng e-toll system are expected to be gazetted on Friday.
Government announced yesterday that it would only publish its final decision on e-tolls in Gauteng after the period of public consultation was finished.
Once the proposed tariffs are officially published in the government gazette, members of the public will have thirty days to comment on them.
Government says it will then take another two weeks to consider the feedback before it officially publishes its position.
It insists it has not taken a decision yet and it will take public comments into consideration.
The published tariffs are expected to result in motorists paying 30 cents per kilometre, rather than the initial 66 cents.
A media briefing is also scheduled for today, to allow the technical team to unpack the proposed plan.
Revenue from the system will pay the R20 billion debt incurred to build the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project.
Meanwhile, a North Gauteng High Court review of the system is scheduled to take place on 26 November.
