I know this isn’t exactly Cape Town news, but since i’m up in Johannesburg right now i may as well tell you that folks are having a frothy because come this festive season visitors to Gauteng will also have to fork out R50 for a day pass if they intend using one one the e-toll highways.
Dunna what all the fuss is about. Does anyone visit Joburg in the festive season?
Ok that was mean sorry Joziburgers..but dont pretend like you arent coming to Cape Town during the festive period.
“Visitor day passes will be sold at retailers, including Shoprite, Pick n Pay and Spar. Retail outlets are likely to become the first stop in Gauteng for travellers without internet access.
A day pass will be activated when a vehicle passes through the first gantry and it can then pass through as many gantries on a Gauteng e-road as needed in a 24-hour period.
For a category A1 vehicle (a motorbike), a day pass will cost R30, for a sedan R50, small heavy-motor vehicles R125 and trucks R250.” [TimesLIVE]
Now you know.
