Govt Urged to Consider Other Options on e-Tolls

OUTA suggests ways in which government could settle the R20-billion debt incurred by improving Gauteng highways

The Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (OUTA) says there are four other ways the government could settle the R20 billion debt incurred by improving Gauteng's highways.

OUTA argues that if one of the options – fuel levy – is hiked by seven to eight cents, around R1.7 billion could be collected to pay for the infrastructure over 20 years.

However, South African National Roads Agency Limited head, Nazir Alli, and Transport Minister, S'bu Ndebele, have argued that it will be unfair for people in other parts of the country to pay for Gauteng's roads.
