In 2018 the Average Daily Traffic (ADT) on the concession section of the A4 Katowice-Kraków motorway amounted to 45,298 vehicles and was higher by 5.2% than the traffic level recorded last year (43,062 vehicles). In 2018 toll revenue amounted to PLN 332,377 thousand and was higher by 5.6% than in 2017 (PLN 314,776 thousand).
As far as cars are concerned, the ADT increased from 36,101 vehicles in 2017 to 38,067 vehicles in 2018 (5.4% increase). In 2018 toll revenue from cars amounted to PLN 222,051 thousand and was higher by 5.2% than in 2017 (PLN 211,027 thousand).
As far as trucks are concerned, the ADT increased by 3.9%, i.e. from 6,961 vehicles in 2017 to 7,231 vehicles in 2018, while toll revenue from trucks in 2018 amounted to PLN 110,327 thousand and was higher by 6.3% than in 2017 (PLN 103,749 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.
