City of CT willing to take N1, N2 tolling battle to ConCourt
The legal battle between the city & Sanral over tolling the freeways will be heard at the SCA.
CAPE TOWN - The City of Cape Town says it will take the fight over tolling parts of the N1 and N2 Highways in the Metro to the Constitutional Court, if need be.
The legal battle between the city and the South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral), over tolling the freeways, will be heard at the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) on 16 August.
In September last year, the Western Cape High Court ruled in the city's favour by setting aside the declaration to toll sections of the highways.
But Sanral appealed the judgment.
The city's Brett Herron says, "It is possible that this matter has got another way to go, but in the meantime we remain resolute that the N1 and N2 tolling project will not be a necessity and we'll continue to fight it."
