Prime Minister Robert Fico has followed Transport Minister Ľubomír Vážny in admitting that the planned date for the introduction of the electronic toll collection system in Slovakia (January 1, 2009) is now unrealistic.

Slovakia is now set to lose a great deal of money in toll collection revenue because of the legal scuffle related to the tender, said Fico following the Cabinet session in Topoľčany on July 16. But statements that Slovakia will pay Sk7 billion (€232.4 million) more due to overpriced competition are nonsense, he said.

"Slovakia will pay nothing. The tender winner will invest all the money in the construction of the electronic toll system and will receive part of the collected toll based on terms agreed upon in the contract," he stated. SITA
