A panel of 15 people would assess the socio-economic impact of e-tolls in Gauteng, Premier David Makhura said yesterday. The panel, which would meet for the first time on Thursday, would assess the impact of the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project on the economy and on Gauteng residents. It would invite proposals and submissions from Gauteng residents on proposed solutions. The panel would submit its finding and recommendations to the Gauteng provincial government. “The panel is expected to present monthly reports and [a] final report and recommendations to the Gauteng provincial government by 30 November 2014,” Makhura said. – Sapa
