ZAGREB, April 2 (Hina) – Transport and Infrastructure Minister Oleg Butkovic said on Friday that this summer there would be no seasonal increase in motorway toll prices.
While touring the construction works at a section of the Istrian Y motorway, Butkovic also hinted at the possibility of lowering the motorway toll tariffs for Croatian nationals.
“We are considering a model whereby we and the tourist sector could encourage local people to go on holiday this summer. Therefore, the price of motorway tolls could be lower. However, we will decide on that in due course,” said Butkovic.
Commenting on the government’s plan to phase out the coronavirus containment measures, which would include the gradual restoration of public transport services, Butkovic said that epidemiologists would define rules for passengers using public transport.
Wearing protective masks will be obligatory and social distancing measures will have to be obeyed. Buses and trains will probably allow a smaller number of passengers.
Butkovic announced the reintroduction of flight services twice a day between Zagreb and Split and Zagreb and Dubrovnik as of 11 May.
The question mark remains over the re-establishment of international air transport, according to the minister.
