Toll Collect to provide information about the truck toll at IAA Commercial Vehicles trade fair. Visitors can direct their questions to staff of the toll operator in hall 12, booth C32.
Toll Collect will give an initial glimpse into the preparations for the toll extension to all federal trunk roads planned by the German Federal Government for mid-2018 at the IAA. At the end of June, the German Federal Government instructed the toll operator to further develop the toll system technically for this reason. With the planned extension, the route network subject to toll will grow to 40,000 kilometres of federal trunk road. Currently, a total of 15,000 kilometres of motorway and specific federal trunk roads is subject to charge. And that applies to only one direction of travel for each road.
The further technical development will involve all components of the toll system, from satellite-supported automated toll collection to enforcement. The processes are being designed so that there are tangible benefits for customers and their operational processes are not negatively affected. This means that the more than one million on-board units (OBUs) that have already been installed for automated toll collection can still be used. Garage servicing is not required.
The manual log-on procedure will be expanded with a mobile app for smartphones and tablets. Internet log-on will continue to be available. Manual log-on will also be possible on 1,100 toll terminals, the majority of which will be located at border crossings and important traffic hubs.
In the future, so-called enforcement pillars will enforce compliance with the toll requirement - in addition to mobile enforcement - on federal trunk roads. The first of the almost four metre high, blue pillars will appear in the road network from late 2016/early 2017.
