E-tolls and the recommendations

16.01.2015

THE Gauteng premier, David Makhura, announced: “The provincial government is already working with national government, the three metros and the affected municipalities, Johannesburg, Tshwane and Ekurhuleni, to consider all the recommendations and their implications.”

This followed the findings and recommendations by an e-toll review panel, which discussed a method of funding the roads as well as creating a new public transport infrastructure.

The findings revealed that over 50 recommendations had been found. “The main recommendation of the panel is that elements of the current e-toll system must be reviewed to address the questions of affordability, equity, fairness, administrative simplicity and sustainability," Makhura said.

The panel had been appointed in July last year and the final report had been completed by November, but was not made public until today.

There has been a massive social and public outcry towards e-tolls and it seems the findings continue to come up against challenges.Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (Outa) chairman, Wayne Duvenage, tweeted: “It appears that Outa has been barred from attending the premier's e-toll panel report presentation.”
