In 2018Q1-Q3 the Average Daily Traffic (ADT) on the concession section of the A4 Katowice-Kraków motorway amounted to 46,064 vehicles and was higher by 5.3% than the traffic level recorded in the same period last year (43,749 vehicles). In 2018Q1-Q3 toll revenue amounted to PLN 252,041 thousand and was higher by 6.0% than in the same period last year (PLN 237,779 thousand).
As far as cars are concerned, the ADT increased from 36,785 vehicles in 2017Q1-Q3 to 38,828 vehicles in 2018Q1-Q3 (5.6% increase). In 2018Q1-Q3 toll revenue from cars amounted to PLN 169,556 thousand and was higher by 5.4% than in 2017Q1-Q3 (PLN 160,801 thousand).

Difference between dynamics of growth of toll revenue as compared to dynamics of growth of Average Daily Traffic is due to the change of toll rates since March 1, 2017 (from PLN 16.5 to PLN 18 and from PLN 26.5 to PLN 30) and differences in vehicle category structure (depending on the category different toll rates are applicable).
Management Board believes that the positive trend in traffic growth is related to the developments in macroeconomic situation and is also the result of users’ appreciation of high standard of motorway.
