Four companies that manage Croatia's motorways have generated an income of HRK 1.026 billion from road tolls without Value Added Tax (VAT) in H1 2016, which is 7.8% more than in the same period last year, the Croatian association of tool motorways concessionaires HUKA has said in its latest newsletter.
The highest jump in income of 8% was generated by the Hrvatske Autoceste (HAC) with revenues in the amount of HRK 624 million without VAT.
Autocesta Rijeka-Zagreb (ARZ) generated revenues of HRK 236.4 million without VAT in H1 this year, up 7.9% on the year.
The Autocesta Zagreb-Macelj (AZM) and Bina- Istra motorways have also recorded an increase in revenues in that period. AZM generated an income of HRK 86.3 million without VAT (+6.8%) and Bina-Istra earned HRK 79.6 million (+6.9%).
Figures provided by HUKA indicate that the growth in revenue in H1 was on par to increased traffic. In H1 30.79 billion vehicles were recorded on pay toll roads, which is an increase of 8.35% y-o-y.
