Sanral granted leave to appeal Winelands toll project
The legal battle over tolling between City of Cape Town & the roads agency is heading to the SCA.
CAPE TOWN - The Western Cape High Court has granted the South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) leave to appeal a ruling that effectively halted plans to toll highways in Cape Town.
In September, the High Court ruled in favour of the City of Cape Town, setting aside approvals that would have enabled Sanral to go ahead with the N1/N2 Winelands Toll Project.
The municipality has accused the roads agency of failing to follow due course, saying the process was improper and unlawful.
The legal battle over tolling between the City and the roads agency is heading to the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA).
The matter is scheduled to be heard in the Bloemfontein court next year.
Sanral maintains tolling is necessary for much-needed upgrades to road infrastructure but City officials say there are other ways to secure funding.
