Sanral stopped in its tracks

Cape Town - The Western Cape High Court has put the brakes on The South African National Roads Agency's plan to turn two highways into tolled roads in the province.

The court granted the City of Cape Town an interdict halting construction on the N1 and N2 highways. But, today's victory is only until a review of the scheme takes place.

The City of Cape Town wanted Sanral to justify its decision to construction the toll, pending which, it wanted the court to grant an interdict to halt all contruction.

The DA led, City of Cape Town told the court that the project would place a massive financial burden on both businesses and residents across the city.

Sanral however, said the decision was not an impulsive one and that all relevant parties had been consulted prior to work on the tolls commencing.
