Slovakia collected EUR 154.1mn in electronic tolls in 2011, up 8.6% y/y, CTK news agency reported, quoting data from SkyToll, which operates the toll collection system. The payment of e-tolls on motorways, high-speed roads and selected first-category roads was introduced in Slovakia in 2010, as the fees are paid by buses and trucks weighing over 3.5 tonnes. SkyToll has collected a total of EUR 295.9mn since it started to operate the e-toll system two years ago. The toll is paid on some 2,400km of road network, as highways and dual carriageway sections accounted for 64% of the collected sum last year and first-category roads, which make up the main part of the e-toll roads, contributed 36%. Payments from foreign hauliers, mainly from neighbouring Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary, made up 43% of the total toll collection. Slovakia uses a satellite technology for toll collection. The network of toll roads is divided into nearly 1,100 sections, with SkyToll charging vehicles toll only for the use of a section in its full length. SkyToll won the tender for a toll system operator in 2009 with the highest price offer, after the other biders were excluded from the tender.
