” From my data, 90 million is the annual revenue on the bridge, and about 10 million is the annual cost. It is also a waste of income. We know that revenues from toll facilities must be spent solely on maintaining and repaying the loan. In this case, it is the repayment of the loan for HAC, and not for the Krk Bridge, which was paid off a long time ago. ” Darijo Vasilić, president of PGS, told HRT. The PGS and the Kvarner Union have been warning the Ministry of Transport for a long time that the collection of tolls on Krk is unconstitutional, illegal and discriminatory for residents who go from the mainland to the island. They waited for the Ministry’s response until the end of last year, and since they did not receive it, they sent a request for the abolition of the toll to the Constitutional Court. The Krk Bridge is the only one in Croatia to collect tolls Cover photo: Srđan Hulak, www.srdjanhulak.com Thus, citizens traveling from the mainland to Krk are in an unequal position in relation to others, since the crossing over any bridge is not charged.The Ministry of Transport issued a statement. They point out that this decision would have an impact on the restructuring process that is currently being carried out for 5 and a half billion euros of “heavy” debt in the road sector. They note that islanders and legal entities have been released from collection, and that discussions on a decision on the possible abolition of collection for all are still being held with international creditors. The request for the abolition of toll collection on the Krk Bridge was sent to the Constitutional Court by the leaders of the Primorje-Gorski Kotar Association and the Union of Kvarner, reports HRT. For two years now, these two political options have been insisting on abolishing tolls, among other things because Krk Bridge is the only one with toll collection in Croatia.
