'Less motorists are paying e-tolls since ANC Gauteng announcement'

The company contracted by Sanral to design and operate the e-toll system, the Gauteng Open Road Tolling Project, says it has seen a significant impact on the number of motorists paying toll fees since an announcement by the African National Congress (ANC) in Gauteng that it plans to do away with e-tolls.

Last month, the newly elected PEC said it would appoint a task team to look into the scrapping of the controversial e-tolling system.
