The implementation of the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Programme is imminent, and Gauteng road users are being encouraged to register for e-tolling.
Transport Minister Dipuo Peters said, “I am appealing to South Africans in Gauteng, who have vehicles running on the road, to register. It’s better for you to get your tag in time before the rush, now that it is signed into law.”
Last week, President Jacob Zuma signed into law the Transport Laws and Related Matters Amendment Bill – which paves the way for the implementation of the e-tolling.
Peters said she was now attending to the remaining procedural matters related to the implementation process.
These include the publication of final regulations, notices and toll tariffs, and the determination of the date of commencement.
Peters said she has signed the regulations, which were now submitted to President Zuma. Once he has signed them, an announcement will be made on the implementation date for the e-toll system.
