STATEMENT BY THE CITY’S MAYORAL COMMITTEE MEMBER: TRANSPORT FOR CAPE TOWN, COUNCILLOR BRETT HERRON
The South African National Roads Agency Limited (SANRAL) this morning, 27 November 2015, applied for leave to appeal against the Western Cape High Court judgment that set aside the approvals that would enable SANRAL to toll sections of the N1 and N2 freeways in Cape Town.
In light of SANRAL’s decision to seek leave to appeal, the City of Cape Town applied for leave to cross-appeal against a section of the judgment that was handed down by Justices Ashley Binns-Ward and Nolwazi Boqwana of the Western Cape High Court on 30 September 2015 in the Winelands Tolling matter.

Motorists whose vehicle licence discs expire on 30 November 2015 and are renewable by 22 December 2015 and those whose discs expire on 31 December 2015 and are renewable by 22 January 2016 will not be receiving renewal notices. Read more below:
The City of Cape Town asks motorists to act proactively and to check the renewal date on their existing licence disc to ensure that the necessary arrangements are made, and to renew discs online where possible.
Motorists are also reminded that the National Department of Transport’s new requirements apply, i.e. of providing, amongst others, proof of residence when applying for a motor vehicle licence disc renewal.
‘It is currently the busiest time of the year for our municipal offices, which include our motor vehicle registration centres. This, coupled with the additional requirements and also the lack of renewal notices, is affecting the turnaround time per customer. Motorists and other customers may also experience longer queues than what is the norm. We are doing everything in our power to ease any inconvenience to our residents, including deploying additional staff and moving staff between offices as hotspots arise,’ said the City’s Executive Deputy Mayor, Alderman Ian Neilson.

Johannesburg, 26 November 2015: Multi-Grammy award winning R&B superstar Mary J. Blige is to raise the roof with a trademark heartfelt performance at the BET Experience Africa at the Ticketpro Dome, Johannesburg on 12 December. Blige, who last performed in South Africa in 2007, will joinMaxwell, Raphael Saadiq, Tamar Braxton and Young Thug on the same stage as African superstarsAKA, Flavour and Diamond Platinumz at what is shaping up to be the lifestyle experience of the year.
Pure, unadulterated and empowering – that has been Mary J. Blige’s calling card ever since her 1992 multi-platinum debut album, What’s the 411? In the ensuing years, the singer/songwriter’s musical strong suit has attracted an intensely loyal fan base – responsible for propelling worldwide sales of more than 50 million albums and 25 million singles. With a track record of eight multi-platinum albums, nine Grammy Awards (plus a staggering 30 nominations) and four American Music Awards, Blige is only getting started. The singer returned just as fierce and compelling on her tenth studio album, the aptly titled “My Life II … The Journey Continues (Act 1)” – a sequel to Blige’s 1994 classic “My Life”.
