Sanef wants to build toll system

On April 25, the French company Sanef announced its intention to take part in the tender to build and operate an electronic highway toll system in Slovakia for vehicles over 3.5 tonnes.

Bruno Corthier, a representative of the company, said they need to know how much the toll and sanctions will be if they are to take part in the tender. Corthier added that the planned 10-year operation of the toll collection system was sufficient.

When microwave technology is applied, cars pay for passage through each gate, but the on-board unit in cars is far cheaper than the satellite system. He added that they would have to make a detailed analysis of the costs in order to choose between the microwave and satellite systems.
