HaVE the government and the National Treasury missed a golden opportunity here?
The price of petrol has come down by about 85c. Fine. But was any thought given to reducing the price, by say, 60c and then putting the balance towards the cost of/repayment of the debts incurred by the toll-fee debacle? Provided, of course, that these funds were “ring-fenced” within the Treasury to ensure they were used solely for that purpose.
With the two reductions of late, and the possibility of a further drop next month, it seems like a chance for a way around the debate on how to fund the cost of the road improvements in Gauteng. Being really optimistic, they could even look to build a surplus for future development of roads throughout the country.
Makes sense to me. Let’s hope senior members of the government are listening.
