"MEDIA RELEASE issued by The Polish Directorate for National Roads and Highways (GDDKiA) OCTOBER 1, 2010 Kapsch consortium is winner of the tender

GDDKiA has decided today, October 1, 2010, upon the tender for the installation and operation of an Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) system. The winner of the tender is the Kapsch consortium. GDDKiA intends to sign the contract in the course of the month of October. The Kapsch consortium is obliged to implement the ETC system by July 1, 2011. Based on the current assumptions and on the toll road network as defined in the edict of the council of ministers on May 7, 2010, toll revenues of PLN19.5 billion are expected during the contract period 2011 to 2018. Accordingly, the ETC system shall be implemented on a total of 2,000 kilometres of highways, 5,000 kilometres of motorways and 600 kilometres of lower class roads. […] The Kapsch consortium offered a system based on Dedicated Short-Range Communication (DSRC) technology for a price of PLN 4.9 billion whereas the competitor - the MyToll consortium - offered a system based on Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) technology for a price of PLN 6.5 billion. The ETC system will be introduced for all trucks and buses above 3.5 tons which will not further be obliged to buy vignettes for the future use of the highways. Passenger car vehicles may register in the ETC system on a voluntary basis. The toll tariffs and the technical details will be determined at a later date."
