Outa hopes for end to e-tolling in 2015
Outa says 2015 is the year to bring an end to the wasteful expenditure of e-tolls.
JOHANNESBURG - The Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (Outa) says 2015 is the year to bring an end to the wasteful expenditure of e-tolls and to realise the system has failed.
Gauteng Premier David Makhura has promised to meet with national government this year to discuss the report conducted by a panel he established last year to work on a way forward.
Labour parties, political parties and interest groups have made submissions to the panel, with the majority asking for the system to be replaced with another model, to pay repay the debt for the upgraded Gauteng freeways.
Outa's Wayne Duvenage says there now needs to be "level of sanity on the matter".
"If they can't see that the system has failed as a user pay mechanism then I don't know what else we have to do to make them see that 30 percent of people paying for the system proves it's failing."
