Sanral together with the six other respondents successfully won their bid to have amendments to Outa's original court challenge struck from the roll on Tuesday.
The much-awaited court challenge to certain issues related to the controversial e-toll system set for commencement on 30 April, was not able to get underway until Judge Prinsloo had made his ruling on the amendments which included a challenge to how SANRAL determined tariffs as well as why the public transport sector was not yet exempt from tariffs.
Sanral's legal representative Adv David Unterhalter SC opposed the amendments citing that they were brought at "the 11th hour" on Saturday evening (21 April)band sought to broaden the scope of Outa's original case.
Judge Prinsloo said, "I agree with opposing council that the amendments does seek to broaden the scope of the applicants attack.
"There is no reason why the amendments can't be moved to a later stage. I was persuaded by Mr Underhalter that this amendment does raise complex legal issues."
Judge Prinsloo will now listen to arguments for and against the submission for an urgent interdict against the commencement of e-tolling on the current deadline, among other issues.
