JOHANNESBURG - The South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) has distanced itself from the latest developments around e-tolling, including a review panel that's been set up in Gauteng and the appointment of two state prosecutors to deal specifically with non-payment.
The panel, set up by Gauteng Premier David Makhura, will hold its first meeting today, as it starts its work to assess the socio-economic impact of e-tolling on motorists.
Sanral is refusing to comment on these developments.
When the agency's CEO Nazir Alli was asked about the appointment of two prosecutors to handle e-toll cases in court, he told Eyewitness News that the law must take its course.
Alli also says all questions related to the review panel must be directed to the Gauteng premier.
But Makhura's office says he is not commenting because the assessment is now underway.
The panel of 10 experts will meet today, to discuss how the review will be conducted.
They have until the end of November to conclude their work and put forward recommendations on how to solve the e-tolls problem once and for all.
