Outa considers e-toll appeal
Outa members will meet to discuss appealing last week’s e-toll judgment.
JOHANNESBURG - Members of the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (Outa) are said to meet on Friday to discuss whether they will appeal the high court judgment that gave e-tolls the go-ahead.
Last week the North Gauteng High Court dismissed Outa's bid to stop the controversial project from going ahead.
It is still not clear when Gauteng motorists will start forking out money to use the province's highways.
But the alliance's Wayne Duvenhage said they were already talking about an appeal.
"We have had some time to unpack and digest the contents of the judgment and we'll be putting our heads together to discuss our options and how we want to go about the process."
He said the organisation feels there is enough grounds to appeal last week's judgment, especially the ruling that Outa has to pay government's legal costs.
Both Outa and the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) have continued their calls for motorists not to buy e-tags.
