Road users face a 33% increases in charges for using the Göcek Tunnel on the Muğla to Antalya road following New Year tax hikes.
Now, motorists who want to use the Gocek tunnel will be charged as follows:
1st class (cars) from 3.5TL to 4.5TL
2nd class (trucks etc) from 4.5TL from 6TL
3rd class from 7TL to 9TL
Large vehicles from 10TL to 13TL
Motorcycles from 1.5TL to 2TL
Some motorists are now boycotting the tunnel, preferring to take their chances on the old winding road, over the Göcek Pass.
The second tunnel was expected to be completed by May 2015 but has yet to be opened.
Once it is, the original tunnel is expected to be closed for repairs.
