Cape Town - The government has shelved plans to toll Western
Cape highways, it was reported on Wednesday.
Deputy Transport Minister Jeremy Cronin told the Cape Times'
Business Report: "We see no priority in (tolling) the R300, N1, and N2 in
Cape Town... it can't be a priority."
Cronin acknowledged that the national government had been
persuaded against the so-called Winelands Toll Road project by massive
opposition, especially from the city and provincial government.
"There is a lack of support from all spheres of
government... the city and the province have been the loudest."
