Important Information on the Belgian toll

The Belgian government introduced a completeToll Scenario new toll system. Usually, toll sections for dedicated way points are defined by the authorities. Each toll section does have a defined length. In case of exact toll cost calculation, those sections do have dedicated tariffs attributed. In case of average toll, the length of all routed toll sections would be multiplied with the costs per kilometre.

But for both types of toll calculations, it was not relevant on which map or map version this calculation was performed. The toll sections were fixed and as said therefore the length defined.

The new Belgian toll deviates from the known methods.
For the Belgian toll FAQscalculation the toll sections are divided into toll segments and these are added up and multiplied with the toll costs per kilometre. With this, the Belgian toll system reflects an average calculation. But this means also that the calculation depends on the map basis and how the street segments are digitized. So new segments or even missing roundabouts will lead to different results. Also the different way of digitizing the street segments at the map providers will
influence the results

The calculation of the Belgian toll has been implemented with the last toll update in February.

Quick Facts:

  • The new distance based toll is introduced on 1 April 2016.
  • And will supersede the currently applicable time-based Eurovignette
  • Vignette will be replaced by satellite-based OBU

Due to a new toll calculation method for the new Belgium toll, calculations for Belgium with a planning date after 01.04.2016 with a current PTV xServer please consider the following notes:

  • The current PTV xServer support a basic calculation of exact toll in Belgium. That means tollTotals include the sum of all three Belgium toll regions: Wallonia, Flanders and Brussels.
  • With the parameter allEuro set, you get the results in Euro. Otherwise you will get the virtual country currency ‘XXX’ for Belgium toll sections which translates to 1/10000 Euro.
  • With the parameter detailedTollCosts activated, you get the result for every toll section. This result list of toll sections in Belgium may get very long.
    (allEuro and detailedTollCosts can be set in the countryInfoOptions.)
  • The new Belgium toll calculation will influence the performance.

The PTV xServer 1.22 release, which is planned for early March 2016, will fully support the Belgium toll. The country currency will be Euro (as expected) and the toll regions will be distinguishable by providerID. That means the result list with detailedTollCosts activated will contain concarnated toll sections by provider ID.

 

The download is available on the customer area of the PTV Developer Zone now. For the PTV Mapserver please use the current version of the PTV Toll Update Tool. This toll update is already released on LDS for PTV xServer and Mapserver. The Release for PTV xServer internet will follow on 02.03.2016.
