A newspaper report today says that the tariffs for motorists with e-tags in Gauteng will be set at 30c per kilometre, according to the government gazette.
Luckily there will still be cap for all vehicles using the routes designated for e-tolls, and there will be discounts offered to those that pay timeously.
The Star this morning reported that standard rates for those without e-tags will be more than double the 30c per kilometre rate, and those who pay their toll fees within 30 days will be given a 60% discount.
Cars and motorbikes are capped at a maximum of R550 a month, class B (small heavy vehicles) at R1 750 and class C (large heavy vehicles) at R3 500.
The City Press reported:
Cabinet approved the gazetting of terms and conditions, including updated tariffs.
There would be a 30-day period for public comment.
The government would then incorporate the comments and publish its final position after 14 days.
The 30-day period expires one day before the start of the judicial review of e-tolling on November 26.
Zwelinzima Vavi, Cosatu General Secretary, remained defiant this morning and urged people not to buy e-tags:
Don’t buy etags don’t buy! Don’t buy etags don’t buy!
