CAPE TOWN - Members of the Right2Know Campaign say key information relating to the tolling of the N1 and N2 highways in the Western Cape should not be kept secret.

The South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) is set to lodge an application to have certain details around the multi-million rand project classified as confidential.

Some of the information reportedly includes tariff rates.

The matter is expected to be heard behind closed doors in the Western Cape High Court on Monday.

Right2Know's Ghalib Galant says, "We're opposing that the court case be held in secret. It's the secrecy that surrounds this case that we're really concerned about."

The proposed tolling project was put on hold after the Western Cape High Court granted an interim interdict in May last year.
