Cape Town e-toll plan demystified
Wednesday, 13 August 2014
The South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) has dismissed statements by the City of Cape Town, Right2Know and other interest groups that it will implement e-tolling in Cape Town, as it already has in Gauteng.

The statement said funding for Cape Town national road works would come from an appointed concessionaire, while the electronic method of payment for road usage (e-tolls) was a future consideration and dependent on traffic volumes. 

Sanral’s head of communications, Vusi Mona, said: “Firstly, whereas in Gauteng we went out to borrow money in order to build the road, with Cape Town we will be appointing a concessionaire on a ‘Build, Operate and Transfer’ basis.

“This means the concessionaire will design, finance, operate and maintain the road, returning it to the state in a specified condition at the concession period. 

“Secondly, there will be conventional toll plazas along the N1 and N2. The electronic or automated method of payment is a possible future consideration, dependent on traffic volumes.”

Vusi said the upgrading of the Western Cape’s N1-N2 Winelands highway road network was a major infrastructure investment. 

Road improvements include the construction of a 13-km new section of the N2 in Somerset West/Strand, and 14 new or upgraded interchanges, the provision of a second tunnel at Du Toitskloof on the N1, toll-related infrastructure and equipment, as well as integration of facilities with public transport projects.

“It is always Sanral’s aim that the users of the new tolled facility, be it a brand-new road or an upgraded existing road, will derive a real benefit when using that facility, in comparison with what it was.

“Doing so requires funding and Sanral’s allocation from the fiscus is about R10 billion per annum for the entire national road network and the N1/N2 Winelands project requires just about that amount.

“We obviously can’t allocate our entire budget to national roads that pass through one city. The fiscus is under pressure and we have to find alternative ways of financing road infrastructure,” Vusi said.
