Protest against toll hikes in central Greece

Local government officials and motorists from the central Greece area of Fthiotida on Monday protested against government plans to raise charges at the Aghia Triada toll station.

The government recently announced hikes in toll charges across the country, in some cases by up to 60 percent.

The protesters also complained about a decision to postpone the completion of the E65 highway which they said shifts the burden onto the local road network.
