Authorities initiate automation of 10 new toll booths

(Togo First) - In Togo, 10 new toll booths will be automated soon. This was announced by Societe Autonome de Financement de l’Entretien Routier (SAFER) which launched a tender in this framework. 

The concerned toll booths are those of Sanguera, Vogan, Dzemenyi, Adeta Badou, Sotouboua, Alédjo, Défalé, Mango and Ponio. Just like the toll stations of Davié, (Zio prefecture) Vodougbé (Lacs), and Aképédo (Avé) which were recently automated, these booths will integrate modern payment terminals and be operated digitally.

The tender launched by SAFER aims to supply and set up automats for axle-counting, in line with the government’s recent decision to sanction and prohibit the circulation of heavy-duty vehicles that increase their axles without the “required permissions.”

Regarding the already-automated toll booths, they have magnetic payment terminals that accept subscription cards. Soon, an automatic deduction system will be set up but in the meantime, drivers can top up their cards using their phones.
