Johannesburg - The High Court in Pretoria will hear
arguments in the e-toll case on November 26, Opposition to Urban Tolling
Alliance (Outa) chairperson Wayne Duvenage said on Thursday.
"The review in the high court will take place on
November 26," he said.
On April 28, the court handed down an order preventing the
SA National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) from levying or collecting e-tolls
pending the outcome of a judicial review.
Duvenage said Outa had filed supplementary affidavits, and
the respondents in the case - Sanral, National Treasury, the transport
minister, and the Gauteng transport MEC - would file responding affidavits.
After this, Outa would file a replying affidavit.
"It takes quite a while," he said.
The Constitutional Court will hear arguments in the e-toll
case on August 15.
Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan applied to the
Constitutional Court to set aside the court order preventing Sanral from
Gordhan argued that Judge Bill Prinsloo had ignored the
principle of the separation of powers.
He said the decision to halt e-tolling would negatively
affect the economy. In its reply, Outa said Sanral was still not ready to
launch the project.
Under the e-toll project, motorists will pay over 35 cents a
kilometre to travel on some of Gauteng's freeways.
The project was to have been launched on April 30, but was
postponed for a month after a meeting between the ANC and its alliance partner,
the Congress of SA Trade Unions.
