W Cape tolls shelved

Mar 28 2012 13:39

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."
