Toll Road Confusion

Share the news!!!

More people from all walks of life have asked for the confusion over the N2 Wild Coast toll road to be cleared up.

This follows a similar appeal last week by social worker John Clarke who has worked with the Amapondo people for more than a decade. He appealed to the Minister of Transport to clarify the conflicting media reports on the possibility of the scrapping of plans to build the road.

The controversy has raged for thirteen years, with massive resistance to plans for funding the project through KZN toll booths.

In 2010 Sanral was authorised by the Department of Environmental Affairs to go ahead with the construction of the road, but last week KZN MEC for Transport, Community Safety and Liaison Willies Mchunu was reported as saying that no tolling would be implemented on the KZN side.  This would compromise the financing of the road.

Sanral has since said that no decision on the funding or the scrapping of the plans had been take.
