• Conflict over water, coal

    SA's leaders have upped their support of the water-intensive coal industry, says Keith Schneider.

  • Cost of doing business

    The world can't afford the $4.7trn a year in environmental costs of business, says Mandi Smallhorne.

Sanral: E-toll registrations pick up

Apr 18 2012 15:14
Sapa
Johannesburg - There has been a significant increase of e-tag registrations in Gauteng, the SA National Roads Agency Ltd (Sanral) said on Wednesday.

Most of the registrations had taken place at mall outlets, it said.

The agency was unable to provide a figure but Beeld newspaper reported that more than 350 000 e-tags had been registered for e-tolling.

Salahdin Yacoubi, chief executive of electronic toll collections, told the publication that between 5 000 and 10 000 people had registered daily in the past week.

E-tolling is set to go live on April 30.

Sanral gazetted new tariffs on Friday.

Alternate users (people without e-tags) will be charged R1.75/km, compared to the standard tariff of 30c/km for registered users.

It said the higher fee was because of the need to recover costs, including invoicing and debt collection.

On Tuesday, several organisations and political parties raised concerns about the tariffs and asked Sanral to postpone the launch.

Cosatu said it is planning a second strike against the system.
