Tolls suspended in Via do Infante


The Ministry of Public Works, Transports and Communications announced that toll charging is suspended in the Algarve, Beiras and North motorways.

According to a press release issued today by the Ministry of Public Works, Transports and Communications (MOPTC), the Juridical Centre within the Presidency of the Council of Ministers (CEJUR) considers unconstitutional the “decree law approved by a caretaker Government introducing toll charges in the SCUT highways in the Algarve, Beira Interior, Beira Litoral and Alta and Interior North”.

Toll charging was due to start on April 15.

The reason given for the suspension was that the introduction of tolls by a temporary government would be unconstitutional, according to the Legal Department of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers (CEJUR).

However, protesters in the Algarve will continue to fight against any future decision to introduce tolls in the region, with another Go Slow planned to take place along the A22 on Saturday, April 9, expected to count on the support of the Andalusian people.

Algarve Car Hire companies are worried with the future A22 tolls implementation because of the problems that are foreseen to arrise with tourists driving rental cars throughout Via do Infante.
