Bulgaria: Minister Nikolay Nankov: E-Vignette System Will be Flexible

''Electronic vignettes will replace current paper stickers for light vehicles. There will be options for one-day and weekend vignettes, while prices won’t exceed the current ones'', Regional Development Minister Nikolay Nankov told Bulgarian National Television’s (BNT) quoted by the ministry’s press office.

The pricing model will be more flexible than now when the e-system is introduced. The state will have higher revenue while saving costs for sticker printing, storing and distribution. Alone in the first year, the government expects revenues of BGN 800 million, compared to BGN 300 million now.

Heavy cargo vehicles, which cause more damage to roads, will be the most affected by the new toll system that will take into account both tonnage and distance traveled by vehicles.

A public procurement procedure for the installation of the toll system has been again suspended after the filing of complaints. Once it resumes, the state will evaluate six offers.
