    This is complete bullschit. Check the houses in the background and count the number of lanes. I doubt that this is even in South Africa...

    Yip, first think I noticed is that it looks completely different. The other thing is that there is no stretch of road that looks like that with a gantry.

    Doesn't look right, as others have said, but let it be an inspiration none the less.

    The first clue that that isn't William Nicol is that there's no 8km long traffic jam...

    Is that not the toll gantry that had to be relocated on the N1 between Botha Ave and the Flying Saucer interchange after a business man lodged a complaint that the gantry was blocking their signage?
    The original concrete structure is still next to the freeway.

    Some crappy 2 lane road looks like William Nicol?

    Me thinks someone has never seen William Nicol before.
    I believe posters are recognised by their sig... so I made one.

    Gautengs gantry's look quite different:

    It's an illegal advertising structure that was taken down in Nairobi, Kenya.

    It is NOT an e-Toll gantry.

    Whoops, did somebody forgot to pay their advertisement fees/bribes to the correct persons?

    And if it was William Nicol it would make no sense, e-trolls are only on highways.
