PRETORIA - South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) is expected to make more submissions to the e-tolls assessment panel sitting in Pretoria this morning.

The panel was established to assess the socio-economic impact of the multibillion rand system.

Sanral's Vusi Mona says they will be outlining today how the e-toll system is affecting motorists.

"We will be showing what impact this has on the different income groups that are using the e-toll roads."

Mona says they will also be clarifying some questions asked by the panelist during the last meeting which they could not answer at the time.

Earlier this month, Sanrall boss Nazir Alli told the panel that reports that the roads agency was broke, was a complete misrepresentation.

He also listed benefits if e-tolls which included saving time, safety and less vehicle maintenance due to high quality roads.

A report of recommendations is expected to be handed over to Gauteng Premier David Makhura in the next 11 days.
