More than €23 million has been collected in road tolls within the period of nearly three months during which the toll system has been running, the TASR newswire was told on March 28 by Lenka Lendacká from SkyToll, the company that operates the system.
Electronic tolls on Slovak motorways, highways and first-class roads were introduced for vehicles weighing more than 3.5 tons on January 1. According to SkyToll and the National Highway Company (NDS), higher amounts have been collected especially in recent weeks on first-class roads, which were excluded from toll-duty on January 14 for 47 days because shortcomings in the system had to be dealt with. NDS director Igor Choma said that more money has been collected over the past week than at any other time since the tolls were introduced.
