Sithole, Mr KP to ask the Minister of Transport
What sustainable measures have been taken to ensure that there is a sustainable resolution to e-toll challenges, considering widespread non-payment of e-toll bills and payment delays being blamed on the COVID-19 pandemic?
SANRAL participated in the Technical Task team, led by the Director-General of Transport, to present various options to Ministerial Committee, which was led by the President and included the Ministers of Finance and Transport as well as the Premier of Gauteng. The Technical Task team concluded their work some time before lockdown in 2020. The decision is now in the hands of Cabinet.
In the meantime, SANRAL has to continue to operate within existing financial constraints and in line with National Treasury budget approval.
