Lost revenue

Road improvements on the N-332 have hurt the AP-7 toll motorway. Autopistas del Sureste (AUSUR) made an appeal to the Ministry of Development for compensation but that has been rejected.

AUSUR, who have the concession until 2048, claim they will lose 311 million euros in tolls.

I would say that part of the problem lies with AUSUR who increase their tolls almost annually and have a higher rate for the summer months than for the winter. If you join the motorway and leave it at the right junctions then you pay no toll at all but stay on through the popular sections and you are several euros out of pocket.
