The DA congratulates the South African Roads Agency Limited (SANRAL) on eventually deciding to sue the construction companies who conned them of up to R760 million or perhaps even more.
We wish SANRAL well in their recovery efforts and look forward to e- toll rates being reduced by a similar percentage
We note Vusi Mona’s unlikely story of ‘getting their ducks in a row’ before initiating action. The DA informed the Gauteng Department of Roads and Transport and SANRAL several years ago that the charges being imposed on the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project were far in excess of world norms and standards, only to be ridiculed by Nazir Alli et al and nothing was done.
If the SANRAL officials spent more time corroborating the value of contracts and listening to public opinion their tasks would be far easier.
