Without roads, societies grind to a halt. Without adequate and well maintained roads, societies will remain inefficient and uncompetitive. Over time, our roads will require maintenance, repairs, expansion and upgrading – this is a fact of life that we and authorities have the responsibility to plan and provide for.
Road users currently pay through a number of taxes for the benefit of road use. The proposed funding of the GFIP by means of e-Tolling is regarded as an inefficient, costly and unnecessary additional burden on road users. We believe eTolling of our Gauteng Freeways as proposed by SANRAL is irrational and unreasonable and was not planned with the best intentions for the public in mind. This forms the overarching basis of our opposition to eTolling, with more details about why we oppose eTolling and the grounds thereof available in the next window.
