The Slovak Government decided on July 4 that all motorway tariffs set to come into force as of January 1, 2009 would be reduced by 20 percent compared to what was proposed last month.
Trucks with a carrying capacity of 3.5-12 tonnes should in 2009 pay Sk2.75 (€0.081), Sk2.58 and Sk2.54 without Value Added Tax per kilometre, instead of the original Sk3.44, Sk3.23, and Sk3.18 per kilometre, according to the emission class of the given vehicle.
The tariffs for trucks with a carrying capacity of 12 tonnes or more, with two axles, will be Sk5.84, Sk5.5 and Sk5.42 per kilometre; for trucks with three axles Sk6.14, Sk5.81, and Sk5.71; and for trucks with four axles Sk6.29, Sk5.95 and Sk5.86 per kilometre. Trucks with five axles will be charged Sk6.17, Sk5.83 and Sk5.74 per kilometre.
Vehicles that enable the transportation of more than nine passengers including the driver and have a carrying capacity of 3.5-12 tonnes will pay Sk2.72, Sk2.58 and Sk2.54. Those over 12 tonnes will pay Sk5.58, Sk5.30 and Sk5.23.
