The Ministry is allowed to choose project’s investors under BOO form (Build-Own-Operate) and instructed to notice the possibility of applying the e-toll collection technology on wide scale.

With this technology, drivers will have e-tags or identity tags on vehicle windscreens and accounts to make toll payment.
When vehicles enter a tollbooth, a laser technology identity system will activate cameras to capture their registration numbers. Images and information will be transferred to a data processing center and the toll will be deducted from the accounts.
