2013-01-08 09:03

E-TOLL BATTLE TO CONTINUE IN COURT: Outa plan to launch an appeal on a court decision to give the e-toll system the go-ahead.

 
The Opposition To Urban Tolling Alliance (Outa) will appeal a court ruling that ended its bid to have e-tolls in Gauteng scrapped.

On December 13 2012, the High Court in Pretoria dismissed an application by Outa to have the electronic tolling of Gauteng's major roads scrapped.

The court ordered Outa to pay the legal costs of the application. Outa also intended appealing this order.

'WE WILL APPEAL THE JUDGEMENT'

Chairman Wayne Duvenage said: “We will be appealing the e-toll judgment.”

The appeal had to be lodged with the court by January 9 2013. 

Outa's founding members are the South Africa Vehicle Renting and Leasing Association, the SA Tourism Service Association, Retail Motor Industries of SA, the Quadpara Association of SA, and the SA National Consumers Union.

The group was formed was formed in March 2012 to challenge SANRAL’s decision to implement e-tolling of the upgraded freeway network in Gauteng. The group calls the e-tolling "irrational, unreasonable and illegal".

According to Outa's website: "We realise the need to pay for the road upgrade, but to be subject to the payment of Billions of Rands toward an inefficient toll collection process is unacceptable."
