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.
Chief Project Officer of the Gauteng Open Road Tolling Project at Electronic Tolling, Coenie Vermaak says it has been business as usual but less people are paying.
It takes a while to make sure our campaigning works and communication works to try and bring up the compliance rates again.— Coenie Vermaak, Chief Project Officer of the Gauteng Open Road Tolling Project at Electronic Tolling
