Highway A-7 between Marbella and San Pedro.

The Government of Pedro Sánchez is preparing the payment for the use of the freeways so far free, to enter into force from 2024. Within three years it will be mandatory to pay a “symbolic” toll for traveling on state highways, which could be 1 cent per kilometer, according to the latest information that is circulating on the subject.

So, scroll from Malaga to Estepona would cost 90 cents. But if we move to the capital from Manilva, the price would be more than one euro: specifically, € 1.07. The price would be similar from Casares, where part of the route runs along a regional road managed by the Provincial Council, where tolls will not be applied. If we start from Marbella, the price would be about 60 cents, and 73 cents if we do it from San Pedro Alcantara, a cost similar to that which would have to be borne by the residents of Benahavís, that they would pay only for the A-7 motorway and not for the access road to said road. With this price, circulate between Marbella and Estepona will cost 29 cents, something that would have to be assumed twice by those who commute daily to work.

Towards the other end, in the connections between the Costa del Sol and Gibraltar Field, scroll from Estepona to La Linea it will cost about 33 centswhile going up Algeciras will involve a toll of 50 cents. Taking other countries as an example, it is likely that to collect this toll they will install cameras at entrances and exits of the highways, in order to capture the license plates, which will be associated with a bank account, in a system similar to stretch radars.

Roads affected and excluded

In the province of Malaga you would have to pay to use the state-owned roads. Besides the AP-7 (Costa del Sol highway) and the AP-46 (Guadalmedina or Las Pedrizas highway), where a toll is already paid, this new system would affect the highway A-7, the rounds of Malaga, the Malaga hyperround and the A-45 (highway from Malaga through Las Pedrizas).

Conversely, You will not have to pay tolls on the motorways and roads of the Junta de Andalucía, since the executive of Juanma Morano has already announced his refusal to apply this tax in the autonomic competence pathways.
