Govt to Consider e-Tolling Ideas

OUTA says government has begun to understand the problems posed by e-tolling to South Africa

The Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (OUTA) says the government has begun to understand the problems South Africans face because of e-tolling but that does not mean it has changed its mind on the matter.

OUTA chairperson, Wayne Duvenhage, argues that, “They are beginning to understand the issue, but it does not mean they have come over to our side.”

Duvenhage, who's comments relate to the meeting held between OUTA and the Inter- Ministerial Committee on the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project, led by Deputy President, Kgalema Motlanthe, further states that, “There are fundamental differences over the high cost and burden of e-tolling and they have not said they will dismantle it.”
