    Transport Infrastructure Ireland is assessing road user charging / road pricing options in Ireland as part of the country's most recent Climate Action Plan. This session will present an overview of Project BRUCE (Better Road User Charging Evaluation) and explain the methodology, timetable, and main options to be assessed as part of this evaluation programme. The presentation will also outline the overall approval process, which includes the preparation of business cases and implementation plans under the Irish government’s Public Spending Code process. It will:

     

    • Share a comprehensive methodology for conducting an evaluation of national road user charging / road pricing (including the modelling approach and economic and financial appraisal)
    • Provide insight into the stakeholder management and communications process
    • Provide an overview as to how best to identity and manage the delivery risks relating to a national scheme.

    In the past seven years many automotive OEMs have announced they are working on automated vehicles. While we are not yet at the question how to charge a driverless vehicle, in 2020 the first legislation on partial automated driving on highways was adopted. This could mean that toll charging road operators will have automated driving on their roads. This presentation will introduce:

    • The new legislation
    • The still open issues
    • The effects it may have on EU highways
    • RUC
    • Insight into the development of traffic figures and public acceptance
    • Actions to counter low traffic numbers
    • Performance of the tolling system
    • Overview of what led to the end of the tolling scheme
    • The situation in 2022

    Following the expansion of toll domains and introduction of foreign vehicle taxation in Sweden, the Swedish Transport Agency (STA) decided to transform its ANPR setup and started on a journey to master the technology and mitigate the challenges as traffic volume spiked. This presentation will provide an overview of the STA's experience implementing ANRP technology and explain the challenges and benefits of using ANPR as an electronic fee. Furthermore, it will outline how: 

     

    • ANPR is applicable as the mean for primary identification
    • Toll Domain priorities are reflected with ANPR configuration
    • Taxation frameworks and demarcations cause unexpected side effects and drives complexity

    This panel discussion offers a unique opportunity to hear from some of the most important organisations who are actively involved in creating and shaping the future of road user charging globally and protecting strategic road networks. As part of the session, delegates can expect a straight talking and lively conversation with panellists to better understanding what motivates these groups and bodies representing the sector today, what their priorities are and how they work across borders and cultures. Delegates can also expect to gain a good understanding of the panel’s views on key sectoral trends and potential scenarios/directions for road pricing and charging.

    EU law doesn't require Member States to charge for road use, but when a Member States does charge or toll, it must follow the Eurovignette Directive. This directive has just been revised. While governments with toll roads under concession have been given more time, most Member States must vary truck tolls by CO2 emissions by 2024. Similarly, most Member States will need to charge trucks for air pollution by 2026. Also from 2026, vans and minibuses should pay based on environmental performance where tolls are applied. This presentation will explore options to implement the Eurovignette revision, with a particular focus on getting zero emission (electric and hydrogen) trucks on the road without delay - a key step to cut oil use and emissions.

    This presentation will provide an update on the next step of an on-demand road user charging system to enable EETS utilising a highly secure and widely available digital tachograph. Join this session to understand how to:

     

    · Harness cost savings without the need of a dedicated toll onboard unit

    · Enhance security and reliability by using automotive OEM-deployed equipment for toll collection

    · Easily activate value added and compliance services for additional revenue

    · Achieve faster system integration and go-to market with DTCO and proxy toll services

    • On 1st December 2021, DARS – the organisation that operates and maintains Slovenia's motorway network and the related infrastructure – replaced traditional tolling stickers for all personal vehicles with a modern, user-friendly electronic vignette (e-vignette) that uses ANPR technology for enforcement.
    • This presentation will provide an update on the new system's implementation, lessons learned, results (including the number of e-vignettes sold, enforcement cases, customer feedback etc.) and future plans.
