China News Service, Beijing, June 15 (Reporter Zhou Yin) The Ministry of Transport of China disclosed on the 15th that the Ministry of Transport, the National Development and Reform Commission, and the Ministry of Finance of China have jointly issued the "Implementation Plan for Comprehensively Promoting Differentiated Expressway Tolls."

The Ministry of Transport stated that in order to further improve the efficiency and service level of the expressway network, and promote the cost reduction and efficiency increase of logistics, this plan is formulated.
The program classifies the differentiated tolls of expressways from six aspects:
The first is differentiated tolls by sections.
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.
The second is 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.
The third is differentiated charges 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.
Fourth, 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.
Fifth, differentiated fees 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.
Sixth, differentiated fees based on payment methods. Further improve the electronic payment preferential model of electronic non-stop toll collection (ETC). By increasing the preferential power of ETC electronic payment, 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.
