This year, the toll tariffs will be indexed on 1 July 2017 in Brussels and in Flanders according to the latest index. There will be no indexation of the toll tariffs in Wallonia. However, 33 km of Walloon roads will be added to the kilometer charging system from that date onwards.
What should I do?
In order to implement the changes mentioned above, the OBUs need to be updated. Like a mobile phone, to be able to download the latest update, the OBU must be switched on. To make sure you get the last OBU update and stay compliant with the Belgian regulations after 1 July, just follow the tips hereunder:
- Always keep your OBU switched on as much as possible, even when abroad, so that your OBU can get the latest update as soon as it is released!
- If you use a specific OBU for the first time, keep it turned on for at least one hour so that it has time to download all the latest updates.
- If you have spare OBUs, regularly switch them on (at least every 3 months) and keep them powered on for at least three hours. Consult our FAQ “Do I need to regularly switch on and charge my OBU when I’m not driving in Belgium for a long period or if I keep an OBU as reserve OBU?” in the ‘Downloads’ section of our website for more information.
