The South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) has welcomed the rejection of the Democratic Alliance (DA) application to declare the e-toll Bill unconstitutional and invalid by the Western Cape High Court.
Sanral spokesperson Vusi Mona said: "The legality of the Bill has now been tested before a Court of law and a ruling made in favour of government and Sanral. We urge those who have questioned the legality of this Bill to respect the court's judgement."
The DA made an application at the High Court to make the Transport Laws and Related Matters Amendment Bill, also referred as the e-toll Bill, unconstitutional and invalid.
Mona said the process of e-tolling is increasingly running smoothly as the number of registered road users grows and the need for, and advantages of the system, are widely accepted.
He said where challenges still exist; Sanral and its service provider Electronic Toll Company are resolving such challenges.
"Sanral thanks the more than a million people and organisations who have already registered and looks forward to their continued support and urge other road users to avail themselves of the benefits by registering and getting tagged," he said.
