Prague, 14 August 2023 – In July carriers paid 1.175 billion Czech crowns for driving on toll roads. The amount of collection grew by 0.87 percent year-on-year, and the number of toll transactions increased by 0.15 percent year-on-year to 88.3 million.
From the beginning of this year to the end of July, the government collected 8.7 billion crowns through the electronic toll system (0.25 percent more year-on-year). Funds from carriers are directed back to the development and maintenance of transport infrastructure in the Czech Republic via the State Transport Infrastructure Fund.
In order to achieve the maximum efficiency of toll collection, the network of toll roads was expanded from 1 August 2023 to include newly commissioned sections on two 1st category roads:
on I/34 road, it is the section Příbraz 1 – Příbraz 2 with a total length of 1.48 km (Dolní Lhoty bypass, opened in June 2023);
on I/68 road, it is the section Třanovice – Nebory with a total length of 6 km (the last part of Třinec bypass).
On D48 motorway, one toll section was split into two.
At the end of July 797 thousand vehicles weighing over 3.5 tons were registered in the electronic toll system, of which over 621 thousand vehicles had foreign license plate numbers. For these registered vehicles, CzechToll issued 625 thousand units to carriers.
