The consortium led by French company Sanef (composed of Santoll and Ibertax) on November 26 submitted an official appeal against being excluded from the tender for installing electronic tolling on Slovak motorways. The appeal was delivered to the National Highway Company (NDS), which is supervising the process.
“We’ve also sent a copy of the appeal to the Public Procurement Office,” Sanef spokesperson Veronika Cukasová said.
It was reported on the iDoprava.sk website last week that “according to official unconfirmed information” only three consortiums have made it to the next round of the public tender – Satways (German-Dutch), Kapsch (Austria) and Slovakpass (Italy). According to the website, the remaining players have been disqualified due to incomplete or erroneous data and/or translation mistakes. The NDS has refused to comment.
