Irish Bridge’s Toll Administration Expenses Scrutinized

The Sunday Times (London) (subscription required) reports, “One in every four euros paid by motorists to use the M50 West-Link toll bridge last year was spent on administering the charge. Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII), a state agency, took in €137m from motorists on the Dublin ring road in 2015, but less than a quarter of this remained to be invested back into the road network following administrative expenses, tax and a €50m annual payment to the private company that previously operated the West-Link toll.”
