HGV Toll Charges in Poland 2024: A Complete Guide

The development of the road infrastructure in Poland brings consequences in the form of toll charges for the use of expressways. In 2024, changes introduced to the HGV (Heavy Goods Vehicles) toll charge system significantly impact the transport sector, especially affecting owners and operators of heavy vehicles. This blog post aims to provide current toll rates and discuss the toll road system in Poland to facilitate cost and route planning for transport entrepreneurs.

The Toll Charge System in Poland

The Polish toll charge system for trucks is based on several key elements that determine the cost of passage through specific road sections. Charges may vary depending on the vehicle’s class, the type of road, and the length of the section traveled. In 2024, the tariff has been updated, responding to the growing investment needs in road infrastructure and the pursuit of sustainable transport development.

Current Toll Rates for HGVs

The toll charges for heavy vehicles in Poland in 2024 have been adjusted according to new guidelines, taking into account both inflation and the need to finance current and future road projects. The charges are differentiated and depend on several factors:

  • Vehicle class: Heavier vehicles, due to their greater impact on infrastructure, are subject to higher rates.
  • Type of road: Charges differ between motorways, expressways, and other national roads.
  • Emissions: More eco-friendly vehicles can expect lower rates, which is an incentive for fleet modernization.

Detailed toll rates for different vehicle categories and road sections can be found on the official toll charge system operator’s website.

Toll Roads in Poland

The road system in Poland includes motorways, expressways, and selected national road sections, which are subject to toll charges. In 2024, the list of toll road sections was expanded, part of the strategy for the development and modernization of the Polish road infrastructure. There are plans to further extend the network of toll roads as progress is made on new road investments.

Impact on the Transport Sector

Changes in the toll charge system directly affect the operating costs of transport companies. The increase in toll rates requires enterprises to plan routes and optimize transport costs thoughtfully. It is also an incentive to invest in modern, eco-friendly vehicles that can benefit from lower toll rates.

The update of the toll charge system for heavy vehicles in Poland in 2024 is a significant component of the strategy for the development and financing of road infrastructure. Understanding the applicable rates and regulations is key to effectively managing costs in the transport industry. Companies that successfully adapt to the new conditions will be able not only to optimize their operations but also to contribute to the sustainable development of the transport sector in Poland.
