The South African National Roads Agency (SANRAL) wanted to give Gauteng motorists a timely warning that e-tolls will kick in soon when it made the widely criticised announcement.
SANRAL spokesperson, Vusi Mona, points out that, "We thought it's appropriate now just to remind Gauteng motorists that we will be switching on the system in two months' time, all things being equal."
In April last year, the High Court in Pretoria granted the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (OUTA) an interdict approving a full judicial review before electronic tolling could be put into effect.
On 25 January 2013, the court granted OUTA leave to take the matter to the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) in Bloemfontein, and the hearing will take place in September 2013.
