Just FYI: e-toll collections aren’t on the rise

 

By Staff Writer

In light of media reports yesterday that e-Toll revenues are increasing, the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (OUTA) warned on Tuesday that e-toll revenues are grossly down by 35% and is almost 70% off SANRAL’s original target of R260 million per month.

“When comparing revenue growth and business performance, it is important to equate this to the same period last year, as well as to one’s original targets. OUTA categorically states that any attempt to talk the e-toll numbers up as a result of May and June’s e-toll revenues at R78 million is nothing but a farce,” says Wayne Duvenage, the chairperson of OUTA.

Furthermore, to compare May and June’s results to the low e-toll revenue of R48 million in January 2015 is like comparing summer temperatures to that of winter. January’s e-toll collections will be the lowest in any stage of the year, as it includes low Gauteng traffic volumes due to the holiday season.

“The fact that June 2015 revenues are literally the same as May’s after the new dispensation, is an indication that there has been no take-up of Government’s new offers and that clearly, the public are not being fooled by the so-called discounts and continue to defy the unjust scheme,” says Duvenage.

“OUTA is also revisiting its structures and gearing itself up for the long term fight against the irrational e-toll scheme and will shortly be calling for a new funding drive to finance its core operations and strategy to challenge the planned new regulations to link e-tolls to vehicle license discs.
