The PSD’s proposal to reduce tolls by 50 percent, in ex-SCUT roads, including the Via do Infante (A22), has been approved by parliament, with votes in favour of all parties, except the Socialist Party and Liberal Initiative.

According to Sul Informação newspaper, the reduction of tolls ‘by 50 percent for combustion vehicles and 75 percent for electric vehicles’ will come into ‘effect from 1 July 2021’.
“In regions where there are no alternatives, where accessibility costs are very high and where public transport isn’t a good option, it is vital to take essential steps to minimise context costs. That is what the Parliament has done with this decision”, said Cristóvão Norte, PSD deputy.
