Development Ministry: We consulted on toll system
Hungary’s Development Ministry claims to have held consultations with the representatives of professional organizations during the preparatory phase of the recently announced changes in the toll system, despite many Fidesz mayors stating to the media that they were surprised by the proposal.
The ministry said it "clarified the misunderstandings published in the press over the expected changes, including aims and motives", with the Hungarian Auto Club, adding that it initiated a similar consultation today.
It was reported in December that the Budapest M0 motorway, which circumvents Budapest, would become a partial toll road as of January 2015, however certain stretches are not entitled to become toll-equipped, as they were refurbished with EU support.
Following its negative reception by many, Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said yesterday that “Hungarian citizens will benefit from the planned changes in the road toll system and the introduction of optional e-stickers for individual counties”.
