The motorway network in Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina is at various stages of development. Finance for construction of new sections of the network will be coming from different sources, creating the need for a harmonized, efficient and effective system of collecting tolls.
We undertook a feasibility study to examine options and propose the most appropriate tolling system, taking account of the long-term motorway development programme. This study was a step towards implementing a road charging system for the use of motorways; it presented the proposed strategy and action plan for the implementation of tolling on the three most developed motorway corridors in the Republic of Srpska:
• E661 Banja Luka-Gradiška - 33km
• M161 Banja Luka - Doboj - 76km
• E73 Doboj Modriča (corridor Vc) - 47km
A suitable pricing/discount policy, recommendations on necessary legislative measures for operating the tolling system, and an action plan for implementing the proposed tolling system were prepared.
