Road toll 10% higher

At its session from 30 December, 2016, Serbian government gave the green light to 10% higher road toll. The new prices will come into force on 7th January, at 7 am – public enterprise Putevi Srbije has informed the Tanjug newswire.

Until the said date, old toll prices will be applied. The toll hike comes following the request for a 10% increase made by Putevi Srbije.

Now, the toll for the Belgrade-Nis motorway segment will be 800 Dinars instead of the previous 730 Dinars. The toll for the Belgrade-Croatian border segment will be 375 Dinars instead of 340 Dinars, while the toll for the Belgrade-Novi Sad motorway segment will now amount to 210 Dinars.

As of 1st January, drivers using the Ljig-Preljine stretch also have to pay toll which currently stands at 140 Dinars.

Serbian Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure, Zorana Mihajlovic said in her interview for Radio and Television of Serbia (RTS) that the 10% hike in toll prices was necessary because the money generated in that way would be re-invested in construction of roads, and increasing both the road quality and safety.

“We haven’t increased road toll since 2006. We are building roads that are supposed to be better and safer and this is where the money from the higher toll will go towards”, the minister added.
