The Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance's (Outa) had a prima facie right to argue for a review of the e-toll project in Gauteng, a judge said on Saturday.

“I am persuaded that (the) applicants have a prima facie right,” said Judge Bill Prinsloo in the High Court in Pretoria.

He was handing down judgment in an urgent application by Outa to stop the e-toll project, pending the outcome of a court review.

Prinsloo summarised the review grounds that were brought before the court this week.

“After careful consideration of arguments and counter-arguments the applicants have managed to cross this hurdle,” said Prinsloo. - Sapa
