Economic analysts and more national union leaders refuse to jump on the bandwagon and support the Road Fund Administration proposed plan to introduce a toll system. According to the Namibia Economist, economic analyst, Klaus Schade, emphasised that the RFA is coming under pressure from various angles such as more fuel-efficient vehicles result in lower fuel levies and that road network upgrading from sandy tracks to gravel roads to bitumen standards increases maintenance costs. He expressed that another reason is, the introduction of e-vehicles in the not so distant future would under the current levy system not contribute to road maintenance financing. The RFA in its defence argues that at present, rehabilitation costs are around N$6.1 million per kilometre and that the actual requirement is to rehabilitate 200 km of roads annually.
