Belgium Kilometre Charge – April 1st 2016
From the 1st April 2016 all heavy good vehicles weighing more than 3.5 tonnes registered in Belgium or Europe that carry goods will be introduced to the new Kilometre Charge and will be required to equip an OBU (on board unit). The charge will apply to each road where Eurovignette is necessary in Belgium and aims to reduce road usage by heavy goods vehicles in order to improve road usage and help reduce costs. Although use of the OBU is free, non compliance with the system can result in recieving a minimum fine of £800.The tariffs have been set in cooperation with regional governments and takes in to consideration the varying factors and tolls present by these differing regions.
