THE ELECTRONIC ROAD TOLLING AND ENFORCEMENT: EXPERIMENT OF THESSALONIKI (PROJECT ADEPT OF DRIVE II PROGRAMME)

A Multilane Electronic Toll Collection system has been implemented in Thessaloniki, Greece in the framework of DRIVE II Project ADEPT (Automatic Debiting and Electronic Payment for Transport (1992-1995). This pilot implementation is based on two-way 5.8 MHz microwave communication between roadside equipment and in-vehicle transponder and smart card. The electronic system consists mainly of three modules, namely the multilane debiting system in which electronic payment takes place in a multilane and free-flow speed conditions, video enforcement system which performs checking and payment verification, and finally a control center which co-ordinates all the functionalities and provides overall control of the system. The evaluation results showed that the electronic system is very successful and proved that the system is feasible from both technical and economic aspects.
