Prague, 6 January 2020 – In December 2019, hauliers were charged tolls by CzechToll in the total amount of nearly CZK 725 million. For the whole of 2019 hauliers were billed the total amount of CZK 10.946 billion, i.e. by 1.19% more than in 2018.
Following the expansion of the toll road network as of 1 January 2020, CzechToll operates the satellite toll system on a total of 1,102 kilometres of 1st category roads and 1,307 kilometres of motorways. A total of 2,409 kilometres of roads and motorways are currently subject to toll payment in the Czech Republic. Although the scope of charged roads and motorways has been expanded by 903 kilometres compared to the original toll system, the operation of the cutting-edge satellite toll system is three times cheaper than of the original microwave system.
