BelToll rates unaffected by vehicle height

 

The height of a vehicle has no bearing on how much the Belarusian digital road toll collection system BelToll charges its users. The statement was made by the BelToll press service in an answer to questions submitted by motorists, BelTA has learned.

The press service said that the company had received a number of questions about road tolls and would like to clarify that vehicles over 2.1m high with the total admissible weight of 3.5 tonnes and less are exempt from road toll.

The press service also pointed out that vehicles, which are registered in Belarus and other Customs Union countries but exceed the max admissible weight of 3.5 tonnes, are subject to established road toll rates. The rates can be up to €0.12 per 1km depending on the total admissible weight of the vehicle and the number of axles. The rule applies, for instance, to sport-utility vehicles, minivans, and mobile homes. “Sometimes Belarusian SUV drivers assume that they are not supposed to pay road toll without realizing that the weight of their vehicles exceeds 3.5 tonnes. The citizens even wonder whether the road toll is a way to tax the rich,” said the source.

The BelToll press service noted that passage via Belarus is still free for vehicles, which weigh 3.5 tonnes and less and are registered in a Customs Union member state (Belarus, Russia, or Kazakhstan).

BelToll is a digital road toll collection system built around a specialized short-range radio communication technology that allows collecting road toll without having to stop vehicles.

At present the system covers 815km of Belarusian motorways. Work is in progress to expand the system onto parts of the motorways M4 Minsk-Mogilev and M5 Minsk-Gomel.

The road toll for the passage along Belarusian motorways varies from €0.04 to €0.12 per 1km depending on the total admissible weight of the vehicle and the number of axles.

In line with Belarus president decree No. 426 of 27 September 2012 vehicles registered in the Customs Union member states (Belarus, Russia, Kazakhstan) with the admissible total weight of 3.5 tonnes and less are exempt from road toll. Free passage is granted to scooters and motorbikes, wheeled tractors and self-propelled vehicles, emergency vehicles, and vehicles used for defense and law enforcement purposes. Road toll is not applicable to private buses used for urban passenger transportation, vehicles used for emergency medical aid, mitigation of emergencies or the transportation of humanitarian cargoes.

The Belarusian company IOOO Kapsch Telematic Services operates the BelToll system in Belarus. The company has been entrusted with proper operation of the system and with discharging all the functions it involves.
