City of CT willing to work with Sanral
The municipality is willing to work with Sanral to find a solution to an impasse around tolling in the WC.
CAPE TOWN - The City of Cape Town says it's willing to work with South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) to find a solution to a current impasse around tolling in the Western Cape.
City and Sanral officials have been at loggerheads over the tolling of sections of the N1 and N2 highways.
Yesterday, the Western Cape High Court granted Sanral leave to appeal a ruling which sets aside approvals that would've enabled Sanral to go ahead with the tolling project.
In a statement, the city says it's "willing and eager" to work with the roads agency.
The municipality says this is in a bid to find a solution around the infrastructural upgrades that may be required for sections of the highways.
In the meantime the Winelands tolling project is now headed to the Supreme Court of Appeal.
The city maintains there are other avenues to fund the upgrading of existing roads.
It also argues tolling will adversely affect the poor.
