"We have decided to release the charge drivers with all the weekend of August, which we remain. It's not about exemption, because bufferbox it is our loss and needs to be covered, but it comes with the opening goal, which should reduce (... ) plugs and thus may avoid such tasiemcowych, hours of traffic jams, "- said the head of government. He added that the exemption will be valid from Friday after midday. 16 to midnight on Sunday. bufferbox For long, the August bufferbox weekend this decision will be effective from Thursday. The government also let us analyze whether such a decision should not also apply to the day of All Saints.

As the Prime Minister said, were it not for this decision, it is at a 30-degree heat could occur on the highway "to the dramatic events." "It is therefore also for the safety of the passengers. It's bufferbox about the A1 in two places, especially at the entrance near Toruń, but also in Gdańsk. bufferbox It plugs intensity is unacceptable," - he said. He recalled that the concession contract for the A1 assumes that payments from the state budget, which are directed to the highway concessionaire, are fixed and based on the contract. "The question of the loss is not associated with a refund (...) to a private entity," - he said. He added that the GTC, which is the concessionaire on the A1, is responsible for the collection of fees, but communicate these measures to the National Road Fund.

It is all about - I can say with 100 percent more. Certainly - by replacing this toll, which is the goal. I, of course, the highways that are at our disposal, under the control bufferbox of the state, but we will also negotiate with concessionaires and I think that we will certainly to an agreement, "- he said.

"These vignettes bufferbox were to be a form of tax, which was to finance the construction of expressways and highways. That was the reason why we protested against the introduction of vignettes as an additional tax," - said Donald Tusk.
