The motorways, which are under the jurisdiction of the GDDKiA, will be free during the holidays. The Seimas adopted an amendment to the law announced two weeks ago by Yaroslav Kaczynski.
The Seimas adopted an amendment to the Law on Toll Highways and the National Road Fund. It contains the abolition of tolls on highways administered by the General Directorate of National Roads and Highways.
Highways will be free
The act refers to two paid episodes. These are motorways: A2 on the section Strykow-Konin and A4 Wroclaw-Sosnica. 429 deputies voted for the amendment, 13 voted against, nine abstained.
Only on May 17, the government at an extraordinary meeting adopted a bill that was adopted just nine days later.
“It allows you to stop collecting tolls on state-run highways. The next project will also deal with tolls on licensed highways. There will be no toll roads in Poland, Minister Andrzej Adamczyk said about the project during a press conference. “We hope that duties will be removed from July 1,” he added.
– The goal is that the motorways will be the main communication corridor for cars, as well as for trucks, – said the head of the Ministry of Infrastructure. The Minister noted that this will not only increase safety, but also reduce the cost of maintaining national roads.
Free highways voted for two weeks
Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki drew attention to the pace of adoption of the new rules. The first announcement about the abolition of tolls on highways was made at the convention of the Law and Justice program, which took place two weeks ago.
“That’s how it works! It’s been two weeks since the launch of the Hive program, and the first statement of the President of Law and Justice, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, has already been implemented! It’s called credibility! PO scammers have no chance!” Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki wrote about this on Twitter.
