Four companies enter tender for Czech road toll system

The firms in the running are Kapsch which is currently operating a microwave-based truck tolling system which has come under fire for excessive costs and disappointing returns to state coffers, Skytoll, which is operating a tolling system in neighbouring Slovakia,the German T-Systems International and National Toll Payment Services.
