E-toll prices: send in your comments

The e-mail address to which members of the public can send their comments on the newly proposed E-toll tariffs is now functioning.

That’s the word from a Department of Transport (DoT) employee who deals with feedback from the public.

Their confirmation comes after the Internet domains of the department were offline when the Minister of Transport published the new E-toll prices for public comment.

According to the DoT, comments must be submitted in writing, with e-mail specified as one of the accepted delivery methods.

Previously, the DoT told MyBroadband that their webservers are hosted by the State Information Technology Agency (Sita).

Spokespeople for the DoT were not available for comment on Thursday, 17 October 2013, on whether the period for public comment will be extended.
