Sanral denies e-toll roadblocks

 

Johannesburg -  The South African National Roads Agency (Sanral) has dismissed the DA e-toll increase claims as incorrect and misleading.

"Sanral would like to reassure road users that the tariffs for the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project (GFIP) will 'in real terms' remain constant," the agency said in a statement on Tuesday

Sanral chief executive Nazir Alli said toll tariffs, including e-toll, were adjusted annually by the preceding 12 months' consumer price index, as has been done historically with toll tariff adjustments for the past 25 years.

Additional income reflected for 2012 for the agency will be from the new revenue received when tolling commences on the GFIP at the rates announced by the Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan, as well as the N17 toll route between Springs and Ermelo and the R30 toll route in the Free State, which both commenced at the end of 2011.
