OUTA, a civic action group of business associations and individuals, was formed in March 2012 to challenge SANRAL’s decision to implement e-Tolling of the recently upgraded freeway network in Gauteng, on the basis that it was irrational, unreasonable and illegal. We realize the need to pay for the road upgrade, but to be subject to the payment of Billions of Rands toward an inefficient toll collection process is unacceptable. Of serious concern was the sheer lack of meaningful public engagement by SANRAL, to E-Toll Gauteng’s freeways, which is required by law. More about OUTA, the reasons for its stance, the case and other detail can be found on this web site.
What and Who is OUTA
Grounds of OUTA’s case
OUTA’s challenge against SANRAL arose after many frustrating months of engagements with their team by a number of its members. The merits of its case are extremely sound and strong.
OUTA’s challenge is threatened by a shortfall of funds to pay the high legal costs. While we are grateful to the thousands have contributed to date, we still require funds to meet our target.
