Arguments over the implementation of e-tolling are expected to be heard in the Pretoria High Court on Monday.

Johannesburg - Arguments over the implementation of e-tolling are expected to be heard in the Pretoria High Court on Monday.

Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (Outa) chairperson Wayne Duvenhage said they will be arguing why e-tolling should not be implemented, while the South African National Roads Agency on the other side would be pushing for the system's implementation.

E-tolling was scheduled to start on 30 April this year, but a court interdict by the High Court delayed the process just two days before it was scheduled to begin.

The court ruled that a full review needed to be carried out before electronic tolling of Gauteng's highways could be put into effect.

When delivering judgement regarding the interdict at the time, Judge Bill Prinsloo said people were held captive by toll roads.

Under the project, motorists would pay over 35 cents per kilometre to travel on some of Gauteng's major roads. - Sapa
