Government should not fight the court interdict against the tolls
29 April 2012
DA’s Gauteng Caucaus Leader Jack Bloom says that government should abandon any legal challenge to the court interdict against the Gauteng tolls.
He says the very expensive e-toll collection contract must be cancelled and the money that people have spent on e-tags must be paid back immediately.
He continued to say the e-tolls are effectively dead and the court interdict gives government a way to cancel its contract with the Electronic Toll Collection Consortium.
The North Gauteng High Court ordered Sanral to put the system on hold with immediate effect. Opposition parties, unions and consumers have widely welcomed the ruling.
