France Seeks To Balance Toll Increases Against Inflationary Pressures

The Connexion reports that French Transport Minister Clément Beaune is bracing drivers for toll increases in 2023. Annual increases are linked to inflation, which has been much higher in 2022 compared to the previous year, when tolls only increased two percent. “If we applied things in an automatic fashion we could get a rise of 7-8% next year,” Beaune said. He promised it would not come to that despite the suggestion from some motorway companies. Yet he cautioned that to encourage ecological sustainability, car travel cannot be insulated from rising costs. Train fares also are expected to rise next year, though the increase is targeted below the rate of inflation and price caps are being discussed.
