Terms of a public tender to select a supplier and operator of an electronic highway toll collection system have been released by the National Highway Company (NDS) and are now publicly accessible in the EU official bulletin.

The tender covers the construction and operation of an electronic toll collection system for vehicles over 3.5 tons over a network of 2,435 km of roads. The NDS estimated the value of the project at SKK20 billion without VAT. The winning company will have a 14-year contract that includes building the new system within a year and then operating it for 13 more. A possible option could tack another five years on to the end of the contract.

Applications for participation in the tender should be submitted by July 27 and qualification materials should be in by August 30. Bids will be opened on December 7 of this year.

SANEF, Siemens, Slovak Telekom, Kapsch and consortium ToSy already have indicated interest in the tender.
