The Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (Outa) will appeal a court ruling that thwarted its bid to have e-tolls in Gauteng scrapped, it said on Monday (7 January).
"We will be appealing the e-toll judgment," chairman Wayne Duvenage said.
On 13 December the High Court in Pretoria dismissed an application by Outa to have the electronic tolling of Gauteng's major roads scrapped.
The court ordered Outa to pay the legal costs of the application. Outa also intended appealing this order.
Outa's founding members are the SA Vehicle Renting and Leasing Association, the SA Tourism Service Association, Retail Motor Industries of SA, the Quadpara Association of SA, and the SA National Consumers Union.
The appeal has to be lodged with the court by Wednesday, 9 January.
