Good news for South African motorists is that the e-toll gantries will soon be a thing of the past.

This was confirmed by a proclamation published in the Government Gazette on Thursday.

The e-toll system will officially be switched off on 11 April.

This was confirmed by Sanral, the national roads agency who have managed the system since its inception.

The statement said that the gantries used to toll road users “will officially be disconnected from the e-tolls network from 11:59 PM on 11 April 2024.”

The Gazette, signed by transport minister Sindisiwe Chikunga, stated that the Gauteng provincial government will pay 30% of Sanral’s debt to the national government. This amounts to R12.9 billion.

Gauteng will also contribute to backlog maintenance of R4.1 billion while national treasure will cover 100% of Sanral’s debt.

The Gazette also said that the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project will be withdrawn as a toll road.

The switching off of the gantries comes later than what Gauteng premier Panyaza Lesufi promised earlier this year. During his State of the Province address, Lesufi promised that all the gantries would be switched off by no later than 31 March.
