NEW Year’s Day saw the end of tolls on the AP-7 in the Tarragona-Valencia and Valencia-Alicante sections, as well as the AP-4 that connects Seville and Cádiz. 

No less than 21 years have passed since the end of the first concession of the AP-7, but there have been several extensions on the Autopista del Mediterráneo. The result was  48 years of paying tolls in a section in which, most of the towns of the Alicante region of the Marina Alta and surroundings have no connection other than by road.

Some overjoyed local residents even decided to celebrate their New Year’s Day meal on the road. The group Adéu AP7 urged drivers to celebrate with a dinner ‘pa i porta’, where everyone was to take their food to the Sant Antoni II service area at 10:00 pm for a celebration. 

It is estimated that the end of the tolls will allow drivers to save between €2000 and €2500 per year per vehicle, while the residents of the area will be able to carry out their usual trips without a large financial outlay like the one they have suffered up to now.
