    Exclamation Outcome of the OUTA Court Case against SANRAL

    The decision is being handed down now by Judge Prinsloo....

    Some Tweets to keep you going....

    Judge finds that Outa (main applicant) has standing to bring the case. Still discussing the other applicants.
    Judge finds OUTA and SAVRALA have standing in the case.
    Judge going through applicants one by one and summarising main concerns with #etolls.
    Judge highlights affidavits or ordinary South Africans forming part of OUTA. In essence: People will struggle to pay tolls.

    Prinsloo: Not difficult to accept that thousands if not tens of thousands of Gauteng road users would be in a predicament
    Judge: thousands if not tens of thousands of people will find themselves in same predicament as individuals who approached court
    Prinsloo: Cosatu and ANC decision to postpone not part of the issues before him.

    Prinsloo: On Sanral's own version it will have to issue 2.1m summonses a month.
    Prinsloo: I am forced to hand down this judgment under extremely pressing an urgent circumstances over a long weekend
    Outa support set to increase - judge
    Judge: Sanral has refused to make the true costs of the full project public
    Judge talking about arguments about non-compliance (possible 70 000 summonses to be issued each day / 2.1-m a month)”
    Judge: Despite recent attempts, public transport remains hopelessly inadequate in JHB and PTA.
    Judge Prinsloo says that the Freeways are so populated because there is no alternative for urban commuters."


    ... I have a feeling we are going to see an interdict against SANRAL before the end of the day!

    Judge: irreparable harm on public is self evident #etolls, following affidavits from potential toll road users.
    Judge Prinsloo says this is only about an urgent interdict - not about the merits of a review that could follow.
    Judge: My conclusion is that the applicants have managed to cross this hurdle (prospect of success of a review)."

    Default Judge to rule on e-tolling

    http://www.ewn.co.za/en/2012/04/28/J...e-tolling.aspx

    Judgment in a court case launched to stop
    Gauteng’s controversial e-tolling system is due to get underway in
    Pretoria on Saturday morning.

    The North Gauteng High Court spent three days hearing arguments into
    whether the project should be interdicted and then reviewed.

    While the case was heard against a Monday deadline, the launch of the
    tolls has now been pushed back by a month.

    Judge Bill Prinsloo is due to give his ruling at 11am, having spent
    Friday going through more than 3,000 pages of arguments and exhibits.

    His ruling will have massive consequences for the country.

    Sanral and the Treasury have argued that an interdict could see the
    project put on ice until 2013, which would have a negative impact on the
    economy.

    However, the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (OUTA) says the scheme
    is irrational and has already been postponed several times.

    It remains to be seen whether Thursday’s decision to delay the
    announcement by a month, will have any impact on the court case.

    The alliance says the only threat is that the judge may now want to take
    more time in writing his judgment.

    Meanwhile, Transport Minister Sibusiso Ndebele has urged motorists to
    stop fighting e-tolling and accept that they have to pay for Gauteng
    highways.

    Ndebele has been adamant the tolling system will go ahead.

    He says motorists have started buying e-tags and the system has reached
    a point of no return.

    Another critic of the tolls, the Congress of South African Trade Unions
    (Cosatu) has put on hold its planned protest against the system pending
    the judgment.

    Judge agrees that motorists are held "captive" to the tolls system - due to a lack of alternatives.
    RT @Abramjee: INTERDICT granted! #etolls
