ACDP welcomes e-tolls postponement

Johannesburg - The one-month postponement of the implementation of the Gauteng e-tolling system was welcomed by the African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP) on Friday.

"Clearly, good sense has prevailed in the face of mounting opposition in the form of court action, strikes and mass civil disobedience," the party's transport spokesman Steve Swart said in a statement.

"While we appreciate that this is a temporary reprieve...we believe that this is a significant victory for united and mass opposition."

On Thursday evening, the transport department and SA National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) announced the postponement hours after the African National Congress and the Congress of SA Trade Unions (Cosatu) said they would ask the government for a month-long delay.

E-tolling was to have been implemented on 185 kilometres of highway in Gauteng on Monday.
