A22 traffic goes up as tolls come down

Tolls on the A22/Via do Infante were reduced in August 2016.
At the end of last year, it emerged Portugal’s government had lost 13 million euros in revenue in 2017 from tolls on the Algarve’s Via do Infante motorway and inland motorways after cutting the charges the summer before.
This most recent data was revealed in the Algarve Conjuntura - Mobility and Transport Barometer for the third quarter of 2017, released by the Regional Algarve Coordination and Development Commission (CCDR).
“This is the first barometer in which it is possible to compare the effects of the reduction of tolls on the Via do Infante, measured in early summer of 2016, where average daily traffic (TMD) increased by 13.7 percent, corresponding to 21,481 vehicles per day”, the study said.
The barometer further found significant positive growth in both rail and air transport in the Algarve, consolidating “a tendency of growth that has been uninterrupted” since the third quarter of 2013.
All the values of the barometer can be consulted in the Mobility and Transport portal on website www.mt.ccdr-alg.pt.
