Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma is still considering the Transport Laws and Related Matters Amendment Bill, the Presidency said on Thursday.
“Once he has made a decision, the president will inform Parliament and the public,” presidency spokesman Mac Maharaj said in a statement.
If passed, the bill will set motion to the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project (GFIP), under which motorists will be electronically charged for using some main roads.
The e-tolls have been challenged by several political parties, the Congress of SA Trade Unions (Cosatu) and the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (Outa).
Outa is expected to appear in the Constitutional Court in the next few weeks to try and stop the system.
In April, the SA National Roads Agency Limited said it was ready to start e-tolling, and it was just waiting for the completion of the parliamentary process.
At the time, the Bill was being processed in the National Council of Provinces. It was passed by the National Assembly at the end of May. - Sapa
