The Greek government on Friday said it had successfully concluded talks with the contractors of the country's five largest national highways, paving the way for a reduction of road tolls.
The two sides reached a memorandum of cooperation and understanding envisaging completion of national road works, while representatives of the banks funding the projects also expressed their support for the projects.
Speaking to reporters, Infrastructure, Networks and Transportation Minister Dimitris Reppas said the final agreement would be completed by the end of July, with road tolls expected to be cut, by the end of summer, by 25-30 pct throughout the network and by 50 pct on sections under construction.
