“Ramaphosa’s spokesperson said the president wants to find a solution to the E-toll issue.”.
This is the latest indication that the E-toll system is close to being scrapped, the paper reported.
“E-tolls are high on the president’s agenda and he expects there to be a definitive answer regarding government policy on the matter as soon as possible,” said the spokesperson.
This follows Outa stating that only 30% of road users in Gauteng pay their E-tolls.
This causes massive annual losses for Sanral, as the income from E-tolls is meant to fund a completed road infrastructure project worth R22 billion.
Motorists reportedly owe Sanral R9 billion in this regard.
