Easter Monday sees new anti-tolls protest

Algarve anti-tolls group CUVI will hold a new go-slow protest on the EN125 between Loulé and Lagoa on Monday (April 17).

Protestors will meet for lunch at Restaurante Zé do Norte near Quatro Estradas at 1pm while the protest is set to begin two hours later.

Cars will drive at a snail’s pace, honking horns and basically blocking traffic. Their goal is to show the government that the EN125 is not an alternative to the A22 motorway, which almost everyone but Lisbon politicians believes should be toll-free.

The group has always maintained that the A22 motorway tolls are “illegal” and have led to a huge increase in the number of road accidents and deaths on the only alternative, the EN125, which they say is a “major disaster area”.

Anyone can take part in the go-slow but the lunch will cost €10. For bookings contact Michael Ferrada.
