New Transport Minister must ditch Gauteng e-tolls

John Moodey MPL

Gauteng Provincial Leader

The DA in Gauteng calls on new Transport Minister Dipuo Peters to ditch the controversial e-tolling project.

Both her immediate predecessors, Ben Martins and Sbu Ndebele, relentlessly pushed through the tolls despite the raft of concerns.

Minister Peters must take this opportunity and heed the public outcry and warning signs around the unworkable project.

E-tolling has failed elsewhere and it will fail in Gauteng.

I will write to Minister Peters today requesting that she urgently review Gauteng’s e-tolls and address the many concerns about the project’s transparency and its real beneficiaries.

The new Minister, with her new broom, must sweep e-tolls out of Gauteng.
