So far 36 companies have signaled their intent to participate in an accelerated negotiated procedure for the construction of an electronic toll system called by Hungary's State Motorway Manager (AAK), AAK told MTI on Monday.
The deadline for declaring interest in the tender is October 10.
Hungary is to introduce an electronic toll system by July 1, 2013 at the latest under a recently published government resolution. The size of tolls in the new system will be determined by distance traveled. The system at present uses vignettes valid for time increments.
The government has allocated HUF 42 billion for the construction of the system.
