TRANSPORT

Projects related to corruption, wasteful expenditure and irrational tax policy transport projects, such as the Gauteng  E-Toll Decision, Concessionaire Tolling, The High costs of Road Construction, The South African Airways etc.

OUTA’s Transport Portfolio was established to address the following core focus areas, whereby we believe our work will improve the performance of Government, its respective departments  and its state owned entities in the delivery of service to society: 

Core Focus Areas:

  • To expose and address maladministration and corruption in Public Sector and Private Sectors involved in transport. eg. E-Tolls, SAA, PRASA etc

  • To challenge Fuel Tax Increases including the non ring fencing of carbon tax on the fuel levy

  • To represent society / our supporters on Policy development (in Parliament & other functions) to ensure rationality and best outcomes to society. 

  • Engage and provide input to Government / Parliament when requested to do so, within our mandate and capacity.

  • To further the aims and development of OUTA’s Transport Portfolio through:

  • Media Statements in response to developments of projects, cases and reaction to matters pertinent to factors impacting on civil society in the transport sector.

  • Participate in national conferences (Private and Public Sector), where Civil Society input is required.

  • Position Papers and opinion pieces where necessary

SANRALs Irregular & Wasteful expenditure amounts to R10bn in 2017

AARTO AMENDMENT BILL 

OUTA believes that the Bill in its current form will not withstand scrutiny and that there are many sections in the Bill that are unconstitutional, not practicable and unworkable.  The main purpose of the Bill is to improve road safety yet, as it stands the Bill appears to be geared towards generating revenue.

SANRAL E-TOLLS 

On one side, batches of text messages with debt collection warnings are repeatedly sent in a war of attrition against motorists who don’t pay Gauteng e-tolls. On the other side, OUTA’s long-awaited battle over the constitutionality of e-tolls is slowly heading for court.

FREEWAY CONSTRUCTION COSTS

A heavily overpriced freeway upgrade justified the decision to introduce e-tolls and has paved the way for the capture of another State Owned Entity.

SAA – DUDU MYENI

During Ms Myeni’s tenure as Chairperson, SAA has lost an estimated R10.5 billion over a period of 5 years, despite that fact that SAA was profitable between 2010 and 2012.

SAA & BnP CAPITAL

Over the past few years, SAA has received several Billions of rands from Treasury, to assist the airline in meeting its financial obligations.  This is a concern to OUTA.
