Starting from January 1, 2017, the scheme of transport vehicles classification for traffic through toll sections of Avtodor State Company’s highways will be changed.
The modifications introduced in the classification reflect particular cases, and they are aimed at making toll roads convenient to use. For example, vehicles of the 1st category performing the transportation of oversize loads or luggage in trailers higher than 2.6 meters will be classified equal to or less than the 2nd category (previously, the 4th category).
Other modifications will refer to the classification of transport vehicles that move using tow-ropes. They will be considered independent transport vehicles with separate toll rates.
In addition, transport vehicles with special technical devices (for example, air conditioners mounted on the roofs) will be attributed to one or another category by the highest point.
However, the procedure for classification of transport vehicles of the 1st and the 2nd categories with luggage and accessories on the roofs will remain unchanged – luggage and accessories will not be included in the calculation of overall height.
At that, the main purpose of such modifications is to create conditions for unambiguous interpretation of transport vehicles classification rules. It will help to minimize the number of controversial situations arising during the payment at toll collection points, as well as to reduce the number of users’ resorts as to the issues of classification.
Please refer to the annexes hereto for detailed information on modifications.
