Private concessions on two Spanish motorways expired when 2019 ended. They have passed into the hands of the state and the ride has become free. Meanwhile, increases can be expected on the majority of roads.
At the end of 2019, the period of the concession contract between the national authorities and the manager of two sections of important motorways ended. These are the 373 km long section of the AP-7 motorway linking Tarragona and Alicante and the AP-4 between Cadiz and Seville. The motorways have passed into the hands of the state and have been free of charge since 1 January 2020.
However, on most toll motorways, a total of 1,270 km, toll prices are expected to increase. On average they will increase by 0.84%, which is clearly less than in the last two years (1.67% in 2019 and 1.91% in 2018).
