The SA National Roads Agency Ltd (Sanral) will not appeal against the temporary court order halting e-tolling, it was reported on Tuesday.

This has emerged from a letter from Sanral’s lawyers, Beeld newspaper reported.

Pieter Conradie, lawyer for the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance, said on Monday he had thus far not received any notification that requests to lodge an appeal had been handed in.

Judge Bill Prinsloo issued a court order on April 28 in the High Court in Pretoria against the rollout of the e-tolling system in Gauteng.

The order prevents Sanral from levying tolls on Gauteng’s roads before the entire system and decisions pertaining to it have been examined in a revision hearing.

Conradie said although neither the transport department, Sanral, nor the Treasury had given any indication that they planned to appeal, he had received a letter from Sanral’s lawyers.

“According to the letter, Sanral will make its records available to us this week.”

These records included agreements signed with Electronic Toll Collection, the company contracted to levy the tolls.
