The Democratic Alliance welcomes SANRAL’s decision not to oppose the court interdict that has halted the e-tolls, but the battle is not yet over.
This means that the court case will now proceed, with the parties presenting arguments as to why the e-tolls should be rendered lawful or not.
The stakes are high and the court battle could last for more than six months.
SANRAL’s political masters should preferably cancel the e-toll contract now, rather than subjecting as all to months of uncertainty and a likely ruling against them in the court case.
