Two key transport arteries servicing the Rome metropolitan area the Grande Raccordo Anulare (GRA) ring road and the Rome-Fiumicino motorway could become toll-paying roads. Drivers accessing the GRA from four main motorways, connecting it with the rest of Italy, would be required to pay 30 cents. Those driving to and from Romes Fiumicino airport would pay 50 cents. Local and regional politicians, from opposition centre-left parties and from the Alleanza Nazionale (AN) party of the governing coalition, voiced their hostility to the suggestions: Romes mayor, Walter Veltroni labelled them absurd, the president of Rome province, Enrico Gasbarra called them mediaeval, and a leading AN politician in the capital, Sergio Marchi, declared them shocking. They say the tolls would lead to more congestion and harm local businesses and tourism. Any decision on tolls is the responsibility of the ministers of economy and of transport, in consultation with Anas, Italy's road network operator.
