Potential increase in highway tolls is questioned by SDKÚ MP

During a deputy audit at the Transport Ministry, representatives of the opposition Slovak Democratic and Christian Union, SDKÚ, raised several objections to Transport Minister Ľubomír Vážny in relation to preparation of the electronic toll collection system in Slovakia to be introduced as of January 1, 2010, the SITA newswire reported.

During a deputy audit at the Transport Ministry, representatives of the opposition Slovak Democratic and Christian Union, SDKÚ, raised several objections to Transport Minister Ľubomír Vážny in relation to preparation of the electronic toll collection system in Slovakia to be introduced as of January 1, 2010, the SITA newswire reported.

They are concerned that the charged toll promised by the winning consortium during the tender may eventually rise. “It would be most regrettable if the toll system supplier who did not take into consideration all its costs eventually included the extra costs in construction and operation of the toll system into the charged toll. It would be unacceptable for us if Slovak truck drivers suffered because the bidder underestimated the price,” said SDKÚ deputy Stanislav Janis to SITA on November 3. He thinks there is a realistic danger that the price of tolls could be higher, although the Transport Minister neither ruled this out nor confirmed it. SITA
