April the 8th, 2023 – The new Croatian road toll system is set to function somewhat differently to what we’re used to, and a tender for a contractor has now been announced.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, with the new Croatian road toll system, tolls will be charged depending on the distance a particular vehicle has travelled, and on the basis of specific groups of vehicles. At each location along the motorway where vehicles need to be recognised – at toll booths both on and off the motorway – there will be a portal with built-in DSRC readers, which will enable communication with the ENC devices installed in the vehicles.
The portals will also have cameras placed at the toll booths to detect the passage of vehicles, writes Vecernji list.
Croatian Motorways (HAC) announced a public tender very recently for the selection of a contractor for the country’s new electronic toll collection system, with the estimated value of the procurement of the new system amounting to an enormous 100 million euros.
“The estimated value of the purchase of the new toll collection system on the motorways under the management of Hrvatske Autoceste/Croatian Motorways, Bina Istra and Autocesta/Motorway Zagreb-Macelj amounts to 100 million euros in total,” it was pointed out in the announcement made by HAC.
