Warsaw (Puls Biznesu) – Road authorities expect that companies will propose to collect road fees via a radio system.

In March, the ministry of infrastructure and the General Directorate for National Roads and Highways (GDDKiA) may receive offers from companies which want to win contracts to build and exploit A1 and A2 highways. The two roads must be ready before EURO2012. Road companies are not only asked to propose how to finance the investments but also how to collect fees. One of the possibilities is an electronic system.

“The German satellite system is a great project. We expect, however, that companies will offer the radio system, which is cheaper”, Janusz Koper, GDDKiA said.

This system cost EUR 1bn in Germany. Poland has not chosen the technology yet while Brussels allow to use GSM, radio or satellite systems.

There are 680 km of highways in Poland while 1,700 km should be ready in 2012.
