Payment is made through the Electronic License Plate Device (electronic toll) or through pay-by-license plate. In the second case the user pays the regular price of the toll plus a surcharge through an authorised collection agent. The enforcement process only begins in the event of failure to pay through these two systems.

A worldwide pioneer solution

Vialivre is a worldwide pioneer in fully automatic multi-lane free-flow collection of tolls on long distance highways. Vialivre originated as a response to the need to change Cintra’s highway concession model in Portugal, from a shadow toll scheme to an explicit toll collection scheme. This new model owes its existence to the Portuguese Government’s reform of the funding system for transport infrastructures in 2008.

Back-office: the intelligent toll system

Vialivre uses a proprietary back-office system for toll management. Designed and developed by Cintra and Ferrovial, it is endowed with advanced features for managing information flows. This innovative platform ensures efficient, accurate collection and tracking of each trip at all times.

The enforcement process only begins in the event of failure to pay through these two systems. Vialivre is also involved in this phase, managing delivery of the first warnings to offenders. Once the infringement involves a fine, management is handed over to the Internal Revenue Department. The field systems enabling vehicle identification are devices incorporating state-of-the-art technology which will manage payment for the use of the roadway network at European level in the very near future.
