SAVRALA welcomes setting up of e-toll panel
Southern African Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (SAVRALA) welcomes today’s announcement by the Gauteng Premiere to set up a panel to review the implementation of GFIP e-Tolls.
While its members complied with the 3 December implementation of e-Tolling last year, the industry has had to spend millions of rands to integrate the necessary e-Toll and e-Tag systems so that its customers could be billed.
Notwithstanding these investments and ongoing daily e-Toll administrative costs, SAVRALA would welcome an opportunity to participate on an e-Toll panel, as proposed by the Premiere Makhura, with a view to help find an agreeable, sustainable and efficient solution to fund much needed infrastructural upgrades while also noting the need to continue developing an integrated, reliable and efficient public transport system in Gauteng.
