The SA National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) cannot provide the exact number of e-tags sold, it said on Wednesday.

“We have not collated our figures. We should have them by the end of the week,” Sanral spokesman Vusi Mona said.

He was responding to Sapa’s inquiries about the number of e-tags sold to individuals, to government departments, and to companies.

Last week, Transport Minister Dipuo Peters announced that e-tolling in Gauteng would begin on December 3.

Several organisations, trade unions, and political parties said they were disappointed by the move.
