Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
as far as tolls are concerned, the potential for their increase is very strictly framed within the concession contract signed btw the public authority and the private operator. The headroom for increase is typically inflation plus peanuts, unless the  authority breaches their contractual obligations for eg. allows for another toll road to be built in order to directly compete with the first one. Lobbying is in this area a waste of time, unless the project gets to the point of no return and then it's banks' bargain power against that of public authorities. Would not place bets...
For airport fees, it is even more complicated, as the bulk of it is regulated by the IATA.
