Bulgaria: Toll Tax System in Bulgaria To Yield Proceeds of BGN 1.5 B BGNES

Proceeds of BGN 1.5 B are expected from the introduction of the toll tax system in Bulgaria, announced the Director of the Road Infrastructure Agency Lazar Lazarov.

Lazarov specified that the funds will be used mainly for the construction and maintenance of roads.

The introduction of the toll system in Bulgaria was delayed due to the appeal of the procedure on assigning a public procurement order.

According to Lazarov, the toll tax system is fairer than the vignette sticker system.

“The toll tax system is the fairest. Whoever travels most frequently on republican roads and destroys them most must pay the highest amount.”

After the increase in the price of vignettes in 2016, proceeds grew to BGN 300 M. The additional BGN 100 M collected were used for the rehabilitation of the tunnels on the Hemus highway and preventive maintenance works on the roads in Northern Bulgaria.
