In 2019Q1-Q3 the Average Daily Traffic (ADT) on the concession section of the A4 Katowice-Kraków motorway amounted to 46,372 vehicles and was higher by 0.7% than the traffic level recorded in the same period last year (46,064 vehicles). In 2019Q1-Q3 toll revenue amounted to PLN 263,222 thousand and was higher by 4.4% than in the same period last year (PLN 252,041 thousand).
As far as cars are concerned, the ADT increased from 38,828 vehicles in 2018Q1-Q3 to 39,080 vehicles in 2019Q1-Q3 (0.6% increase). In 2019Q1-Q3 toll revenue from cars amounted to PLN 170,350 thousand and was higher by 0.5% than in 2018Q1-Q3 (PLN 169,556 thousand).
As far as trucks are concerned, the ADT increased by 0.8%, i.e. from 7,236 vehicles in 2018Q1-Q3 to 7,292 vehicles in 2019Q1-Q3, while toll revenue from trucks in 2019Q1-Q3 amounted to PLN 92,872 thousand and was higher by 12.6% than in 2018Q1-Q3 (PLN 82,485 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, 2019 (from PLN 18 to PLN 20 and from PLN 30 to PLN 35) 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.
