OUTA Criticises Gauteng Govt Over e-Tolls

Gauteng’s government plans to contribute R123 million towards the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project to pay for shortfalls in the contentious e-tolling system

Gauteng’s government is to contribute R123 million towards the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project (GFIP) to pay for shortfalls in the contentious e-tolling system.
But the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (OUTA) says the amount is being wasted and could be better spent, adding that, “… This has serious consequences for Gauteng taxpayers… and is a waste.”

OUTA chairperson, Wayne Duvenage, says the amount should rather be allocated to ‘critically neglected’ maintenance of other roads in Gauteng, ‘and not to prop up’ the South African National Roads Agency’s “incurable and exorbitant e-toll system.”
