New leg of Prague ring road made 289 million in first year


The south-western leg of the new Prague ring road has made over a quarter of a billion crowns in cargo tolls since opening last September. Some ten thousand cargo vehicles use the 23km section every day, or three million since it was opened last year. The road connects the Prague-Brno D1 motorway with the D5 to Plzeň and was intended to relieve traffic elsewhere on the city’s outskirts.
