The SA National Roads Agency (Sanral) is looking for a new chief executive officer.
The controversial Nazir Alli, who was largely responsible for e-tolls, is retiring as he turns 65 next month.
But he will still be around for the next few months. His last day in office will be determined by the minister of transport, in consultation with Sanral, after the new appointment and a handover period, Roshan Morar, chairman of the Sanral board, said.
Alli has been at the helm since its inception in 1998, and has endured much criticism and abuse from motorists because he was instrumental in establishing the e-tolls.
