Roads in South Africa are set to get even busier after funds that have been earmarked to maintain our national roads have been redistributed to fund the e-toll project, according to the Rapport.
143 of the 339 road design and construction projects have been reduced to focus only on the most critical maintenance. Funds will be used to pay for the running costs like staff – of the e-toll project.
Due to this, there are a large number of new roads that will not be built which in turn will lead to traffic chaos on our existing road infrastructure.
It is alleged that motorists owe SANRAL more or less R9 billion in outstanding e-toll fees.
