Question #4
Fulvio
Head of Toll Collection, Customer Assistance and Service Stations Dept.

Why don’t you introduce a system where motorists pay a token amount annually, like the vignette?

In Italy, unlike other countries, we have a payment scheme which allows us to cover management and running costs and invest in new infrastructures.
More than 2 million Euros have been invested in the construction of the Third Lane, an amount which has been covered almost entirely by the income from tolls. To meet the rest, Autovie Venete has a credit line with the European Investment Bank, which realised the strategic benefit of supporting greater accessibility to the Mediterranean Corridor which links Eastern and Western Europe.
