Brussels, 7 October 2020 – From 1 January 2021, an adjustment will be applied to the tariffs for the kilometer charge in Wallonia. This is an index adjustment. The tariffs apply to all Belgian and foreign heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) with a maximum permitted weight of more than 3.5 tons and semi-trailer towing vehicles of category N1 with body code BC.
Earlier this year, Flanders and Brussels adjusted their tariffs for the kilometer charge. These tariffs have been in force since 1 July 2020. The three regions can adjust their tariffs and the roads subject to tolls annually on 1 July and 1 January. There will be no changes to the road network subject to tolls on 1 January 2021.
The OBU (On Board Unit) software of the six service providers that are accredited for the kilometer charge in Belgium will be automatically updated with the new tariffs that apply in Wallonia from 1 January. The six service providers are currently Axxès, Eurotoll, Satellic, Telepass, Toll4Europe and Total Marketing Services.
On 1 January, the new tariffs will be available for consultation on the download page of the Viapass website. You can already consult the tariffs that are valid from 1 January 2021 here.
Viapass is an interregional public organization. The government body controls and coordinates the kilometer charge for trucks over 3.5 tons, which has been in force in Belgium since 1 April 2016. Since 1 January 2018, the kilometer charge has also been applied to semi-trailer towing vehicles of category N1 with body code BC. Viapass checks the operationality of the kilometer charge and the proper functioning of the infrastructure. The organization also ensures that the money and data flows run correctly, takes care of the coordination between the service providers and is responsible for joint communication about the kilometer charge by the three regional governments.
