Prices cut for installation of Slovakia’s electronic toll units

Private companies CESMAD and SkyToll which are installing special devices into trucks required for the new electronic toll-collection system beginning from January 2010 agreed on December 29 to cut their installation charge by €23 to €111.90, doing so at the request from state-owned highway management company NDS, the TASR newswire reported.

Private companies CESMAD and SkyToll which are installing special devices into trucks required for the new electronic toll-collection system beginning from January 2010 agreed on December 29 to cut their installation charge by €23 to €111.90, doing so at the request from state-owned highway management company NDS, the TASR newswire reported.

The mark-down was agreed on by CESMAD and Skytoll after hours of deliberations following their meeting with NDS, which was initiated by Transport Minister Ľubomír Vážny. Last week Vážny said he found the original charge of €134.90 too high, TASR wrote.

Vážny, as quoted by the SITA, expressed his hope that the e-toll system for vehicles weighing over 3.5 tons and buses will help to shift cargo transportation from roads to railways. He pointed out that while the capacity of highways in Slovakia is used from 80 percent to 100 percent, the capacity of railways is used to only 25 percent to 30 percent. TASR, SITA
