Road toll increases to be deferred
Planned increases in road tolls are to be deferred.
The three coalition leaders agreed to the move at a meeting last night.
The hike in tolls was due to take effect in January, on nine of the country’s ten tolled roads and would have seen the toll on N8 Rathcormac Fermoy Bypass raise to €2.10
However, they will not rise until July next year.
It follows widespread criticism of the decision to hike prices during the cost of living crisis.
