SEVERAL toll roads have become free from January 1 2020. 

This includes the AP-4 motorway between Sevilla and Cadiz and the AP-7 motorway between Tarragona, Valencia and Alicante.

It comes after private toll company Abertis signed a severance package (ERE) for some 136 workers with Spain’s traffic body UGT and USO.

But the lifting of charges has not extended to the AP-7 between Malaga and Estepona, perhaps one of the most used by British expats in Spain.

The route, spanning 82km, comes at a hefty price in peak season, costing travellers €12.60, with another €3.30 added for the extra 20km up to Guadiaro, in the Campo de Gibraltar.

This toll is set to remain in place until 2054, according to local paper AZ.
