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.
