HGV road tolls will increase in Flanders and Brussels from 1 July, announced the payment collector Viapass. The increase is planned to adjust the rates in line with indexation.
As of Friday 1 July 2022, new tariffs for the kilometre charge will apply in Flanders and Brussels. This is an index adjustment. The tariffs apply to all Belgian and foreign heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) with a gross vehicle weight (GVW) of more than 3.5 tons and semi-trailer towing vehicles of category N1 with body code BC.
No paying toll roads will be added on 1 July.
The tariffs for the kilometre charge in Wallonia were indexed on 1 January.
The software of activated OBUs (On-Board Units) of the six service providers accredited for the kilometre charge in Belgium will be automatically updated with the new tariffs that come into force in Flanders and Brussels on 1 July. The six service providers are currently Axxès, Eurotoll, Satellic, Telepass, Toll4Europe and TotalEnergies Marketing Services.
The amount charged per kilometre on toll roads depends on three factors: the region where the road is located, the GVW and the Euro emission standard of the vehicle.
The kilometre charge applies to three GVW categories (more than 3.5 tons to 12 tons, more than 12 tons to 32 tons, and more than 32 tons) and seven Euro standards (from the most polluting Euro 0 standard to the most environmentally friendly Euro 6 standard). The higher the Euro standard of the vehicle and the lower its GVW, the more advantageous the tariff per kilometre driven.
