In 2013, the Average Daily Traffic (ADT) on the concession section of the A4 Katowice-Kraków motorway amounted to 31,645 vehicles and was higher by 10.5% than the traffic level recorded in 2012 (28,630 vehicles). In 2013, the net revenues from toll amounted to PLN 202,251 thousand, representing an increase of 13.1% as compared to 2012 (net PLN 178,826 thousand).
As far as cars are concerned, the Average Daily Traffic increased from 23,979 vehicles in 2012 to 26,596 vehicles in 2013 (a 10.9% increase). Net revenue from toll on cars in 2013 amounted to PLN 140,012 thousand, which represents an increase of 15.5% as compared to 2012 (PLN 121,262 thousand). A greater dynamics of growth in revenue from toll collection in relation to the increase in the Average Daily Traffic of cars is mainly due to two reasons, namely: i) a higher toll rate for this vehicle category (a lower toll rate was applied in the first two months of 2012) and ii) changes in the method of revenue recognition in the period in question (in 2012, part of the traffic generated by frequent, i.e. subscription, users was recognised as the revenue at the moment of selling subscription coupons, that is as early as in 2011, which affected the amount of recognised revenue in 2012, while in 2013, the entire traffic generated by frequent users was recognised as revenue in this period).
As far as lorries are concerned, the Average Daily Traffic increased by approximately 8.6%, i.e. from 4,651 vehicles in 2012 to 5,050 vehicles in 2013. Net revenue from toll on lorries in 2013 amounted to PLN 62,239 thousand, which represents an increase of 8.1% as compared to 2012 (PLN 57,565 thousand). A slight difference between the dynamics of growth of toll revenue as compared to the dynamics of growth of the Average Daily Traffic is due to the change in the structure of vehicle category (various toll rates apply depending on the category) and to the fact that 2012 was a leap year (1 more day of revenue).
