Prague, 1 January 2020 – CzechToll successfully completed another part of the contract for the delivery of the new satellite toll system. As of today, it has expanded electronic toll collection to additional 868 kilometres of 1st category roads and 34.9 kilometres of motorways. A total of 2,409 kilometres of roads and motorways are currently subject to toll payment in the Czech Republic.
Following the expansion of the toll road network as of 1 January 2020, CzechToll operates a satellite toll system on a total of 1,102 kilometres of 1st category roads and 1,307 kilometres of motorways. Although the scope of charging has been extended by 903 kilometres, the operation of the cutting-edge satellite toll system is three times cheaper than the original microwave system.
