Question #15
Michele
Assistant Engineer in charge of Maintenance and Workshops

Does the money from the tolls go towards maintenance?

Most of our income is used for maintenance work.
We have lots of maintenance projects and work is always ongoing, ranging from resurfacing to replacing guard rails, redoing signage and tending to the green areas, an important resource for Autovie as its aim is to improve quality of life. In the stretches of the Third Lane alone, we have planted more than 190,000 trees and plants, as well as the hedges along the side of the lane, and water phyto-purification tanks.
