We have just driven from Torres Novas to The Spanish border the length of the A23 and so far none of the tolls are operative. There are however covers over the prices except for the last two before the border and those boards are still blank.

The Decree-Law provides for the creation of a system of positive discrimination. There will be concessions on SCUT roads which will have tolls as from December 8th.

This ordinance authorises the creation of a system of positive discrimination for people and local businesses, particularly in the poorest regions, benefiting from a mixed system of exemptions and discounts on tolls.

Legal persons having a registered office in the area of ​​ these highways are exempt from paying tolls for the first ten monthly journeys they take on the respective highways. After ten journeys these beneficiaries have a 15% reduction in the rate of toll for each subsequent journey.

To qualify for the discount, users must provide and confirm their address or company headquarters, with their property registration documentation, the registration certificate or a document that identifies the lessor's name and address of residence or headquarters the lessee (more interminable paperwork; what if your property is owned by an offshore company and you car is in your name?).

This system of exemptions and discounts are in effect until June 30th, 2012, and from 1st July 2012, they remain only for the highways that serve areas with a gross domestic product (GDP) per capita less than 80% of the regional percentage of the average national per capita GDP (that’s clear then).

The law establishes the areas of influence of each highway based on the area of ​​the counties included in the nomenclature of statistical territorial units level 3 (NUTS III), so that any part of this NUTS be less than 20 km of the bid and subsections of the highway. (Good God!)

The maximum toll rates are based on the reference tariff for Class 1, and the correlation with the value of toll tariffs of classes 2, 3 and 4 shall not exceed, respectively, 1.75, 2, 2.5 and 25 euros (a clear pricing structure is always appreciated, is anyone following this?)

The billing system is "electronic-only" and non-payment of tolls is subject to sanctions (this we understand; the police take your car away to be auctioned).

Revenues from tolls revert to the state of Portugal, which is responsible for managing the billing system, and for contracting with management companies to provide the system for collecting tolls.

Tolls start December 8th on the Via do Infante, A22 Algarve motorway

Ummmm. All very complicated, for those wanting further detail, right from the start of this saga, the site below has proved a good source of information & explanation.

A22 Tolls – your last day for a free trip on the A22, tolls start at midnight. If you don’t yet have a transponder, and lots of people don’t, you can (theoretically) go to the post office within five days and pay for any journey made without a transponder. Expect confusion
