The toll

Motorway services

The toll : Dakar-Diamiadio toll motorway will not be free of charge, that is to say that those who chose to ply the motorway will be expected to pay for the services provided. This is the principle of the paying user.

Furthermore, an alternative route for those who do not wish to use the toll motorway will be maintained. The national road will be rehabilitated, provided with drainage and offered as an alternative to the toll.    

Toll System and station. The toll will be a hybrid system, open in the urban area (Pate D’oie and Thiaroye) and closed in the peri-urban and rural area (Kerr Massar Diamniadio)  

For the Patte D’Oie stretch, under the so called ‘open toll’ system, users will pay a standard fee when they exit the section. When users enter the motorway at Pate d’Oie they do not take a transit ticket. Toll stations are situated next to the Dalfort neighbourhood and the Pikine interchange (by the Kobatt Fall town).

The Thiaroye Diamniadio section will be operated under the so-called ‘closed toll’ system.  For this section, the User must take a transit ticket at the entrance of the Motorway. Payment is made later in proportion to the journey made, at the toll station closest to one’s destination. On this section, plans are afoot to set up 5 toll stations as follows:  

  • 01 at Thiaroye

  • 01 at Keur Massar

  • 01at Rufisque-Ouest

  • 01 at Rufisque-Est

  • 01 at Diamniadio

Furthermore, conditions for the revision of the tariffs are governed and controlled by the State.  

The tarifs were based on the operations and maintenance costs of the structures arising from the movement of the vehicles classified under the categories hereunder:

Toll collection operation 

The toll collection operation is manual (in cash) and/or electronic using bank cards or a tele-toll sticker displayed on the windscreen.

To build customer loyalty, it would also be possible to introduce a prepaid badge system, rechargeable at specific locations within the stations and in the service areas.   

Systems such as the LTS (local remote surveillance and operations) could also be installed for the management of incidents.

Maintenance – Services

A motorway maintenance centre will be set up in Thiaroye. It will be situated in Thiaroye and have a mechanism in place for 24 hour surveillance of the entire motorway and for intervention in the event of an accident or breakdown.   

Road information will be provided through Variable Messages Signs (VMS), cameras, a Traficolor system and later on even local Fm radio stations.

Any vehicle involved in an accident or broken down will be immediately evacuated from the road. The surveillance video will make it possible to locate all incidents of breakdowns and accidents to deploy the evacuation logistics as rapidly as possible.    

A permanent mechanism will be put in place for garbage collection to ensure the motorway platform is kept clean.

Regarding security of the toll, a Gendarmerie station will work directly with the private Operator to ensure the security of toll operations. Furthermore, the Operator could enlist the support of other State services (Fire Brigade, Water Resources and Forestry…) for the safety of users.

Other areas

On commissioning, the Motorway between Pate D’Oie and Diamniadio will have a service area in both directions situated at the level of the Rufisque Oeust traffic interchange.  The service area will have the following equipment:

  • A service station and a workshop;

  • Banking services;

  • A health centre, a fountain, tables, and benches,

  • A sales outlet for staple foods;

  • Food services;

  • Specialised shops;

  • A rest and prayer area ;

  • Storage area for small and heavy vehicles evacuated from the motorway by the Operator.

  • Eventually additional services will be provided by the Operator (general merchandise or specialist shops, automatic teller machines, sale and recharging of  pre-paid magnetic cards, WIFI zone, meeting points, secure parking for heavy road vehicles)

Periodic visits and inspections will be organised will be organised so as have continuous information on the state of engineering structures and the road in order to pre-empt maintenance works and improve the quality of the road, should the need arise.

 

 

Toll tariffs were set on the basis of a sensibility and acceptance study of the toll system. However, tariff limits which take into account the socio-economic conditions and standard of living of the populations, have been fixed by the State for the private Operator.
