Highways are the fastest way to get from Johannesburg to Pretoria, but South Africa's government says motorists should pay for the privilege.

The department of transport wants to recoup the $2.5bn cost of building and improving main routes into the city, but the move has been met with widespread opposition.

It has been proposed that tolls will be applied to 185km of highway, but critics say it was never made clear while the roadworks were happening that people would have to pay one day.

There have been a series of protests and a general strike against the proposal and a high court judge has now ruled that there should be a full court review of the scheme that could lead to it being scrapped.
