Transport minister says more motorway repairs to take place at night

Minister of Transport Dan Ťok has said he will try to ensure more repairs on motorways and highways are scheduled to take place during the night to try and curb disruption to traffic. The minister said such scheduling would mean higher bills for maintenance but delays and accidents should be curbed as a result. He was speaking after his first 100 days in office. Ťok said that complications with staging a new tender for an operator of motorway tolls for lorries would probably mean that the current controversial deal with the Austrian-based Kapsch would have to be extended. Kapsch won the original 10 year tender in 2006 with the deal under fire for the high installation and operating costs.
