The Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance will not appeal the Supreme Court of Appeal's (SCA) dismissal of its challenge to e-tolls, chairman Wayne Duvenage said on Friday.

"Outa will not appeal the judgment," he announced in Johannesburg.

"Outa is constrained by shortages of funds. We denounce the e-tolls."

To appeal, Outa would need R3.3 million and could no longer afford to appeal, he said.

On October 9, the SCA dismissed Outa's challenge against e-tolls.

Duvenage said the alliance needed R1.5 million to take the matter to the Constitutional Court. -Sapa
