, June 15th. The Ministry of Transport, the National Development and Reform Commission, and the Ministry of Finance recently issued a notice on the "Comprehensive Promotion of Expressway Differential Toll Implementation Plan", which pointed out that the comprehensive promotion of expressway differentiated tolls will further optimize and improve the differences between road sections. Differential charging, differentiated charging by vehicle type (class), differentiated charging by time period, differentiated charging for entrances and exits, differentiated charging by direction, and differentiated charging by payment method.

  The "Plan" requires that on the basis of in-depth summary of the experimental work experience of expressway differentiated tolling, full consideration of local highway network structure and operating characteristics and other factors, select suitable differentiated tolling methods, innovate service models, and scientifically and accurately formulate differences To comprehensively promote differentiated charging schemes.

  (1) Differentiated charging by road section.

Further optimize and improve the differentiated tolling model of sub-sections, and steadily expand the scope of implementation of differentiated tolls.

Focus on the road sections with heavy congestion on the trunk highways or urban roads of ordinary countries and provinces but with low traffic volume on parallel expressways, sections with large traffic volume differences between parallel expressways, and sections with traffic volumes significantly lower than the design capacity, and implement flexible and diverse Differentiate charges, use price leverage, balance the distribution of road network traffic, improve the overall operating efficiency of the regional road network, and promote regional logistics and transportation to reduce costs and increase efficiency.

  (2) Differentiated charges by vehicle type (class).

Continue to deepen the differentiated preferential policies for different models (classes).

Strengthen technological innovation and management innovation, combine actual conditions, implement differentiated charges for special transport vehicles such as ordinary trucks of different models (classes), international standard container transport vehicles, and dangerous goods transport tank vehicles, improve professional transport efficiency, and support the transformation of logistics transport Upgrade to promote the development of the real economy.

  (3) Differentiated fees by time period.

Focus on expressway sections with obvious peaks and valleys in traffic volume and more commuting functions, implement differentiated toll standards at different times, guide passenger and freight vehicles to travel across peaks, alleviate traffic congestion during peak hours, balance the temporal and spatial distribution of the road network, and improve The smooth level of the road network.

  (4) Differentiated charges for separate entrances and exits.

Through big data analysis and demonstration, we will focus on implementing differentiated entrance and exit tolls for specific sections and entrances and exits, such as highway entrances and exits of neighboring ports and large industrial and mining enterprises, adjacent parallel sections with large traffic volume differences, and highway projects around cities, and specific entrances and exits. The implementation effect of flow adjustment and fee reduction.

  (5) Differentiated charges in different directions.

Focusing on expressways with obvious one-way transportation characteristics in resource provinces, differentiated tolls can be implemented for the upward and downward directions, and the price lever can be used to guide vehicles to use road resources in a scientific and reasonable manner.

  (6) Differentiated charges in separate payment methods.

Further improve the ETC electronic payment preferential model, by increasing the ETC electronic payment preferential, encourage and guide vehicles to install and use ETC non-stop express highways, improve the efficiency of road network traffic, and promote the quality and efficiency of logistics.
