Court blocks South Afica winelands toll roads

A South African court on Tuesday froze plans to charge motorists using two roads from Cape Town to the country's scenic winelands. The High Court blocked the tolling plans from going ahead before a court review, after a challenge from local government. "We're opposed to the project entirely," Cape Town councillor Brett Herron told AFP. The South African National Roads Agency Limited (SANRAL) wants to toll stretches of the country's two main highways that lead out of Cape Town.
