Toll plaza going ahead as planned
27 January 2012
MEC for transport in the Western Cape Robin Carlisle said yesterday that he is not able to reverse the decision to build the toll plaza on Chapman’s Peak.
The toll company Entilini was informed by the department that they should go ahead with construction.
Construction workers then moved onto the site and are ready to begin with their work.
After the 2000 people strong protest last weekend, construction is still going ahead as planned.
Carlisle said he hopes the residents of Cape Town will be able to understand and respect the position he was in to let the construction continue.
He added that if he fails to carry out due process, the courts would not be impressed.
Carlisle said that this may lead to a court case.
Residents in the area are busy making plans to seek legal advice.
