Cosatu silent on WC toll road project
Cosatu is yet to comment on the controversial N1/N2 Winelands Toll Road Project.
CAPE TOWN - The Congress of the South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) is keeping mum on the controversial N1/N2 Winelands Toll Road Project.
In May, the City of Cape Town will approach the courts to try and interdict the South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) from going ahead with the controversial plan.
It would essentially cover more than 100 kilometres between Cape Town and Worcester.
It is no secret Cosatu has been vehemently opposed to e-tolling in Gauteng.
Yet the trade federation has not said anything about tolling in the DA-led Western Cape.
Eyewitness News contacted at least two Cosatu representatives who indicated they were not in a position yet to make an informed comment.
One of them did say they are against tolling in general.
However, the N1/N2 Winelands Toll Road initiative has been in the headlines for some time now.
Mayors from five DA-led municipalities say the project may have a major negative impact on the province's agriculture sector.
