The proposed N1-N2 Winelands toll project in Cape Town will be different to Gauteng’s e-tolling system, the SA National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) said on Thursday.
Spokesman Vusi Mona said Gauteng would have an open road tolling system with no booths on the roads, whereas Cape Town would have toll plazas with an option for motorists to pay manually.
In Cape Town, Sanral would appoint a concessionaire on a build, operate, and transfer basis to finance and maintain the road.
The City of Cape Town has taken legal steps to stop the project.
On May 16, the Western Cape High Court will hear the city’s application to stop Sanral from taking further steps to implement the proposed project.
Sanral said earlier in the day that e-tolling on Gauteng roads would begin within the next two months.
