Monteput, a public company that designs, constructs and maintains Montenegro’s roads and highways, has awarded Emovis a contract to upgrade the tolling system used in the Sozina tunnel, which links the country’s capital Podgorica with the port town of Bar.
The nine-month delivery project includes the renewal of the tunnel’s existing 11 lanes with Emovis´ latest-generation Video Tolling solution, an automated payment method based on ANPR technology.
Currently in operation in a number of other European countries, the cashless solution, also referred to as ‘Pay by Plate’, is designed to be a low-maintenance alternative for concessionaires and toll road operators seeking to move away from traditional barrier-tolled motorways.
Milan Ljiljanic, CEO of Monteput, said: “For the last 10 years, we have had extremely successful business cooperation with Emovis.
“We will supplement the current toll collection methods that we use at the Sozina toll station with the Video Tolling system solution.
“We believe that the introduction of this innovative solution will further improve the throughput of vehicles at our toll station and provide our users with another very efficient way of toll collection.”
