Belgian toll will increase in the south of the country and will be extended to other roads
From 1 January next year, higher toll rates will apply to heavy goods vehicles in Wallonia. New sections will be added to the toll road network in this region.
Wallonia plans to raise road toll rates on 1 January 2020. The reason is that prices are adjusted to market realities, taking into account inflation and rising costs. Other regions – Flanders and Brussels – have already raised their rates in July this year. These three regions determine the amount of the toll independently. The toll operator Viapass coordinates the three regions in one system.
How much will the prices increase?
For Euro 5 and 6 trucks with GVW exceeding 32 tonnes, the toll per kilometre will increase from €0.134 today to €0.136. For Euro 5 and 6 trucks with GVW of 12 to 32 tonnes, the toll per kilometre will increase from €0.130 to €0.132. And for every kilometre driven by Euro 5 and 6 trucks with GVW of 3.5 to 12 tonnes, the price will be €0.079 instead of €0.077 in January.
The highest increase applies to trucks with GVW above 32 tonnes in the Euro 0 to Euro 3 classes. For them, the toll increases by €0.003.
Additional 22 kilometres in the toll road network
From 1 January next year, the toll roads in Wallonia will include further sections with a total length of 22 kilometres, namely:
– N5g – Couvin ring road,
– N224 (between Tubize and the A8-E429 motorway),
– N246 (between Tubize and Waterloo via Wauthier-Braine),
– N610 (N610 on the left side of the Liège ring road).
