Call for Provinces to Have a Say on e-Tolls

The OUTA says that provincial legislatures must insist on debating e-tolling legislation as SANRAL implements future e-tolling projects

The Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (OUTA) says that provincial legislatures must insist on debating e-tolling legislation as the South African National Roads Agency Limited implements future e-tolling projects.
 
OUTA spokesperson, John Clarke, points out that, "There can be no argument against the fact that an e-toll system introduced within the confines of any urban area will have a considerable impact on road congestion, maintenance, and other pertinent matters at a provincial level."
 
Clarke, who argues that to exclude the provinces in bills of this nature is ‘simply outrageous’, believes that to bypass provincial legislatures is to show contempt for the public interest and the constitutional rights of South African citizens.
