OUTA warns that the court ruling that grants them the right to appeal a North Gauteng High Court ruling does not mean that the e-tolls will not be instituted in the near future

The Opposition for Urban Tolling Alliance (OUTA) has warned that the court ruling that grants them the right to appeal a North Gauteng High Court ruling does not mean that the e-tolls will not be instituted in the near future.

OUTA's chairperson, Wayne Duyvenage, says it is clear most people are against the e-toll system, adding, however, that it could still be implemented by the South African National Roads Agency Ltd.

“We are mindful of the fact that SANRAL can proceed with e-tolling in the mean time until the appeal is heard, but they will have to do so knowing full well that the supreme court of appeal could rule the scheme illegal and that would be problematic for them,” explains Duyvenage.
