Increase fuel levies, says Gauteng ANC

2012-06-26 08:45

Johannesburg - The ANC in Gauteng has proposed that a fuel levy increase be considered as an interim measure to fund improvements on the province's roads, according to a report on Tuesday.

The Times newspaper reported that the provincial ANC had also suggested a "once-off" contribution from companies to make "super profits" in the province.

This was contained in the Gauteng ANC's discussion paper on public transport and infrastructure, which is to be debated at the policy conference in Midrand this week.

The daily reported that the provincial ANC had also proposed that the government's pension fund be used for infrastructure development.

The SA National Roads Agency Limited was incurring mounting debt after the High Court in Pretoria halted e-tolls in Gauteng in April, pending a judicial review of the project.

    Stop the wholesale stealing of funds in the province and the will be enough to pay for the roads and have change! This is a better option!
