The cabinet has allocated Ft 42 billion to build an electronic road toll system, basing fees on usage, initially for trucks only, the official gazette Magyar Közlöny reveals.
Trucks will be charged the highest fee permitted by EU regulations, without any transition period.
Trucks would pay Ft 85.3/km on motorways and Ft 53.2/km on other main roads.
The new decree does not mention the possibility of car drivers joining the new system voluntarily, a possibility left open earlier.
The government is expecting Ft 75 billion in revenues from trucks alone under the new system next year after it becomes operative on July 1.
