Several parties, including government, have launched a Constitutional Court appeal against an interdict temporarily halting the e-toll project, Outa said on Wednesday.

“We can confirm that we received affidavits for the Constitutional Court, and we are currently looking at them,” Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance spokesman Wayne Duvenhage said.

He said the government's affidavit dealt with the economic impact of the interdict.

“Their (government's) argument is based around its right to introduce policy that it deems appropriate. If they can't do that, then they say it could damage the country's economy.

“We are arguing that it is not the court interdict that is the issue, it is about the poor decisions around e-tolling. Government cannot introduce policies that are oppressive on the country's people. Policies need to be reasonable,” he said.

The High Court in Pretoria halted the e-toll project in Gauteng on April 28, preventing the SA National Roads Agency Ltd (Sanral) from levying or collecting e-tolls pending the outcome of a judicial review.
