W Cape tolls shelved

2012-03-28 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."

    Funny that the Government listened to the moans of the Western Cape and not the Gauteng Moans - suppose it is because in the Western Cape the Government was told before the time, that they will not be accepted. Finish and Klaar.

    WOW congests to the DA ran Municipality and Province for placing your citizens first!It's about high time you start running Gauteng! Maybe then we will be able to SEE where our hard earned taxes are being spend,and won't have to make up for shortfalls with over inflated E-TOLL prices!!!
