Accelerating the provision and enhancing the use of non-stop electronic toll collection services
The building of non-stop electronic toll collection (ETC) systems to replace manual toll collection has been identified by the National Assembly, Government and Prime Minister as a task which must be fulfilled in order to transparentize and modernize toll collection activities, create convenience for traffic participants and save social cost. The Prime Minister has recently directed ministries, sectors and localities to resolvedly accelerate the building of ETC systems, thus achieving certain initial results which serve as grounds for continued implementation of comprehensive measures for building of ETC systems according to the Prime Minister’s Decision No. 19/2020/QD-TTg of June 17, 2020, on non-stop electronic toll collection in the coming time.
In order to accelerate the building of ETC systems at all toll plazas nationwide, the Prime Minister requests:
1. The Ministry of Transport
- To concentrate efforts on and resolvedly direct the implementation of ETC projects (phase 1 and phase 2 projects), ensuring their implementation schedule, quality, inter-connectivity, synchronism, safety and confidentiality in accordance with law and the Prime Minister’s Decision No. 19/2020/QD-TTg of June 17, 2020.
