E-Tolls Consultation to Continue


Gauteng Premier David Makhura will on Friday convene a consultative session with all stakeholders to discuss the report of the Advisory Panel on the Socio-economic Impact of the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project (GFIP) and the e-tolls.

This is a commitment the Premier made when releasing the Advisory Panel report last month to consult with the people on matters that affect them.

The consultative meeting will be held with all the stakeholders that made submissions to the panel to consider all the recommendations and their full implications, including the best funding model.

The consultation meeting will be held at Gallagher Estate Convention Centre in Midrand, starting at 9am.

In July last year, Premier Makhura established the advisory panel with a mandate to conduct a comprehensive assessment of the socio-economic impact of e-tolls.

The advisory panel report has recommended that elements of the current e-toll system must be reviewed to address affordability, among others.

The main recommendation of the panel is that elements of the current e-toll system must be reviewed to address the questions of affordability, equity, fairness, administrative simplicity and sustainability.

The panel has made more than 50 recommendations that address the socio-economic impact of the GFIP and e-tolls, including issues of public transport infrastructure, environmental sustainability and spatial integration of the province.

According to Premier Makhura, once the consultation processes are concluded, government will make an announcement on the recommendations.
