Italian consortium has won e-toll tender, report says

Also on April 3, the Sme daily reports that a consortium led by Italian highway company Autostrade per I'Italia S.p.A., Rome (Slovakpass) has allegedly won the tender to build and manage Slovakia’s electronic road toll collection system, according to the SITA newswire. The paper says it obtained a copy of the minutes of the tender committee's meeting during which bid envelopes were opened. The minutes indicate that Slovakpass submitted the best bid, which means that the consortium should end up building the toll system in Slovakia. The National Highway Company (NDS), which organised the tender, admitted that the minutes of the meeting were genuine. The tender committee opened the envelopes on March 13. However, the results have not yet officially been made public. SITA
