In Sweden there is a system of infrastructure charges in Motala and Sundsvall. From 1 October 2023 also at Skurubron which connects Stockholm with eastern Nacka and Värmdö. Infrastructure charges are applicable to vehicles that are registered both in Sweden and in other countries.
The bridge tolls are infrastructure charges, which are charged to part-finance the construction of a new road, tunnel or mountain pass. That way the people who use the infrastructure help to pay for it.
The payment system is completely automatic. When you drive past a control point on the approach to the bridge, this is registered and a payment slip is sent to the owner of the vehicle.
The tax applies to vehicles registered in and outside of Sweden.
