Minister satisfied with response to electronic toll tender

While he expected more companies to participate in the tender for supplying an electronic toll system, Transportation Minister Ľubomír Vážny said on November 7 that he's satisfied with the eight offers that were submitted.

Slovakia plans to introduce the electronic toll system on highways as of January 1, 2009. Vážny said this date is realistic, in spite of the cancellation of two preceding tenders.

So far, the Satways consortium and Kapsh TrafficCom AG have confirmed submitting applications. According to the Idoprava.sk website, other respondents should be the Autostrade Group, Efkon AG, Housing & Construction Holding Co. Ltd., Sanef, ToSy.sk and Thales, S.A.
