Net revenue from toll on lorries in 2014Q1 amounted to PLN 15,343 thousand, which represents an increase of 15,7% as compared to 2013Q1 (PLN 13,256 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).
The Management Board believes that the positive trend of traffic growth is related to the current macroeconomic situation and is also the result of users’ appreciation of high standard of motorway.
