The launch of the e-tolling system on April 30 must be delayed until all public concerns about it have been addressed, Business Unity SA (Busa) said on Tuesday.
"It is disappointing that Sanral, which plans to launch the e-tolling system on 30 April, has not fully addressed the public's concerns. This should have been done several months ago," the organisation said in a statement.
"Unless these serious practical problems can be timeously resolved, Busa sincerely believes that the magnitude of challenges facing the e-toll system in Gauteng justify delaying its implementation... to a later date."
Busa said the new punitive tariff for motorists who did not register for e-tolling would "have far-reaching and significant implications for the cost of conducting business within Gauteng and throughout the country".
