Sanral cagey about e-toll expansion plans
The roads agency says there's nothing sinister about its court action to keep the plans under wraps.
CAPE TOWN - The South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) is arguing it doesn't need to give details of plans to expand its e-tolling project.
It also says there's nothing sinister about its court action to keep the plans under wraps.
The Democratic Alliance also opposes the move while the Right2Know Campaign has described Sanral's move as unusual.
Sanral's Vusi Mona says there's nothing untoward about the road agency's court application.
"We have no desire to withhold information."
Mona says the legal action seeks to protect sensitive information regarding the tender process for the proposed project.
"Once the tender process is complete, we've got absolutely no problem making that information public."
Sanral adds accusations that it's refusing to disclose tariffs are misguided as these first need to be declared by the minister of transport.
Gauteng Premier David Makhura has since announced an assessment of the controversial system in the province.
