Slovak company SkyToll is interested in taking part in the tender for the implementation of a toll system in Bulgaria. However, the company does not comply with all the requirements in the procedure, representatives of SkyToll told journalists in Bratislava.

SkyToll would consider taking part, if the tender procedure was restarted, this time with modified requirements.

The tender which was announced in the first half of 2016 has already been halted temporarily multiple times due to complaints from participants over the criteria set by the Bulgarian Road Infrastructure Agency (ARI).

SkyToll, which is connected to Czech Tollnet, one of the candidates for the Bulgarian tender, built Slovakia’s tolling system, which since its start in 2010 has grossed over EUR 1.17 billion for the country’s budget. The system achieved nearly 99% percent efficiency in toll collection in just a year of operation, Peter Polakovic, technical director at SkyToll said.

SkyToll is the sole provider for onboard units for tolling of cargo vehicles and for electronic vignettes for passenger cars, unlike the Bulgarian model, which would have more than one supplier and would allow cargo vehicles to choose between tolling and ticketing. The latter could lead to a decrease in collection and possibly to the gathering of incomplete data about road usage, SkyToll chief operations officer Karol Morar told

The Bulgarian tender has an indicative cost of BGN 200 million (about EUR 100 m). After an initial two-year period the future contractor is to hand over the ownership and management of the toll system to a state-company to be specially established for the purpose.
