    The bids started back around 2005 and the Ratepayers through the members (Engineer, Advocate and the members) fought SANRAL all the way even up to Gauteng, the final nail was put into the bids coffin a by the DA led Council recently, some 8 years after after the initial bid.
    My step mother reckons that Nazir Alli and the people that work at SANRAL are arrogant and their arrogance will be their downfall, they are not interested what the people have to say, they have their orders and unless you counter them swiftly and decisively they will continue until they get what they want.
    Ultimately it is the people that suffer with Toll Roads as it impacts all levels of the economy and especially the poor people, actually the mind boggles had a gantry been erected at Groenvlei.

    I find it refreshing that a small team of determined ratepayers saw SANRAL for what it is more than 8 years ago, challenged them and won.
    Wow! That is truly amazing. Kudos to her and her posse for pursuing the bastards. Hero!

    Ask your folks, it was about 8 years ago when the bids first started. The residents of Sedgefield filled the Town Hall in protest much to the Toll Bidders shock and behind the scenes the paperwork continued for years and only recently was the final step taken when the Knysna Council closed the lid on it once and for all.
    You can take Telkom out of the Post Office but you can't take the Post Office out of Telkom.

    No, I want to use the Bakwena toll gates without sitting in queues. I bypass the GFIP roads or use only the free sections.

    I am still waiting for my first invoice, I am receiving my traffic fines so my postal address is correct. The other strange thing is that I have been receiving somebody else's invoices... back to the post office they went. E-Tag free since 2013-12-03.
