Slovakia's revenue from electronic highway toll collection totalled €88.38 million in the first seven months of this year, is a 15.5-percent increase on the €76.5 million collected in the same period in 2010.

In July, the e-toll collection service collected over €12.7 million, down 3.3 percent from June, following a similar trend to the month-on-month development seen in 2010, the SITA newswire reported.

Toll collection in July was influenced by the holiday season and the reduced need to transport goods in the central European region, according to the system's operator, SkyToll. Foreign transport operators contributed 43 percent of overall revenues, SkyToll's Anton Bodis said.

Almost €8.1 million was collected for the use of selected highway and dual-carriageway stretches in July, with the remaining €4.6 million coming from use of selected sections of first-category roads.
