The Kilometer Charge for lorries that has been in force in Belgium’s three regions since 1 April 2016 generated 822.4 million euros in its sixth year of operation, which ran from 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022. That is 8.8 percent more than the 755.7 million euros during the previous operating year. The proportion of toll kilometres travelled by trucks in the two cleanest emission categories, Euro 6 and Euro 5, rose further from 95 to 96.6 percent. This was announced by Viapass, the interregional entity that coordinates and monitors the Kilometer Charge for lorries, when it published its annual report for 2021.
Since April 1 2016, the Kilometer Charge applies for HGVs of over 3.5 tons and for N1 trucks with body code BC. All these trucks need to be equipped with an On Board Unit that is constantly switched-on when they drive on public roads. This OBU will only charge the kilometers driven on paying toll roads.
