CAPE TOWN - The Democratic Alliance (DA) says it has launched a legal challenge against e-tolling and believes it can delay the launch of the multibillion Rand project in Gauteng.

The party is attacking a technicality of how the e -toll bil l was handled in Parliament and whether there was enough consultation.

The DA believes it can prove the way the bill was handled was unconstitutional.

Government is yet to announce when e-tolling will be launched, but has indicated it will be before the end of this year.

The Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (Outa) recently gave up its legal challenge to stop e-tolling.
