The South African National Roads Agency is not giving up on its plan to toll sections of the N1 and N2.

A court date has now been set for its appeal against the 2015 ruling in the Western Cape High Court that put a stop to the Winelands tolling plan.

The City of Cape Town said it had been informed by the Registrar of the Supreme Court of Appeal in Bloemfontein, that the case had been set down for 16 August.

In September 2015 the Western Cape High Court set aside the approvals that would enable Sanral to toll the freeways after the city applied for a review of the decision. The court ruled that if Sanral wanted to proceed with its Winelands Tolling Project, it would have to start the process again including proper public participation.

But the same court also granted Sanral leave to appeal the decision in December.

Judges Ashley Binns-Ward and Nolwazi Boqwana also granted the city leave to appeal certain aspects of their judgment.
