AUTOMATIC TOLL BOOTHS IN MACEDONIA
An automatic collection of tolls system will be introduced on the highways across
Macedonia in 2007, authorities said.
The estimated value of the automatic toll booths project ranges 3-5 million euros.
The project is supported by the World Bank and the USAID. The toll booths will operate with pay cards. The authorities say the toll payment efficacy totals 65%, mainly because of misdoings by employees and unscrupulous drivers.
The project will become fully operational in early 2008. The surplus of employees will be reassigned to others posts in the Roads Fund.
MD: Good thing! The corruption is very high with the current system, however many people are going to lose their current jobs.
