Pretoria - The Gauteng e-tolling project will go ahead, Judge Louis Vorster ruled in the High Court in Pretoria on Thursday.
Vorster started his judgment at 10am, beginning with a summary of the Opposition to Urban Tolling's (Outa) application.
The organisation had accused the SA National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) of deliberately keeping the public in the dark and being dishonest about the process of implementing tolls in Gauteng.
During the application in November, David Unterhalter SC, for Sanral, said this claim was reckless and that Outa had to look at all the facts of the case and affidavits submitted by Sanral, the transport department, and Treasury.
He said Outa's claims were an “extraordinary deception”.
