The way it was described, one of the existing lanes would be modified to support the eToll technology so that registered users in Joburg could get billed on the same system they already have. No new tolls.
However I would worry about the Trojan Horse effect if I live down in Durban - they wait for the system to gain momentum, then introduce new, tolled roads
