Govt Urged to Use Fuel Levy to Fund e-Tolls

OUTA calls on government to establish an independent body to look into what it regards as the lack of a strong approach by SANRAL to hold construction companies to account for alleged collusive practices during the construction of the GFIP

The Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (OUTA) has again called on the minister of transport to establish an independent body to look into what it regards as the lack of a strong approach by the South African National Roads Agency Limited (SANRAL) to hold construction companies to account for alleged collusive practices during the construction of the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project (GFIP).

OUTA chairperson, Wayne Duvenage, points out that for the past 18 months OUTA has raised concern about the issue.

"As I stated in my chairperson's report of last year, it remains OUTA's opinion that South Africa's cabinet and senior government leaders were 'sold' a most grandiose, ambitious and largely unworkable plan by SANRAL, to extract funds from motorists for repayment of a social infrastructure upgrade, through the implementation of an irrational e-toll scheme," he explains.
