E-TOLL EINA ON ITS WAY: The Gauteng E-tolling system will be implemented. Drivers are encouraged to purchase e-tags to recieve a discount rate on tarifs.

South African transport minister Ben Martins has said the Gauteng e-toll system will be implemented.

"Cabinet at its meeting on Wednesday," he claimed, "decided that Sanral should proceed with the implementation of e-tolling.

"Today (Nov 26, 2012) the department of transport Gazetted the toll tariffs and regulations for public comment."

Martins said after the ANC government had considered the public's views, final tariffs would be published.

CHEAPER R E-TAGS

There would be a 30-day period for public comment which expires on November 25 before the start of the judicial review of e-tolling on November 26 2012.

The government has proposed that toll fees for e-tag users be capped at R550 a month for light vehicles.

"Registering for an e-tag account will provide users with the lowest possible toll fees," Martins promised. "Following the consultations, we have lowered tariffs, reduced caps in all categories, offered discounts on tagged vehicles and during peak hours, and exemptions on public transport."

The standard tariff for a light passenger vehicle (Class A) is proposed at 58c/km. Drivers without e-tags who pay their toll fees within 30 days would be given a 60% discount.

The e-tag tariff proposed is 30c/km.
