The funds, to go into the State Treasury account, will be divided into two parts, a central fund and a local fund, according to Decree 18/2012/ND-CP issued on Mar 13. 

Fees collected from cars will go to the central fund (65 percent) and to local funds (35 percent). Motorbike fees will go to the local funds of each locality. 

The central fund will be used to maintain the national road system while local funds would maintain local traffic streets and road systems. 

Road Administration deputy chairman Nguyen Van Quyen said all current State fee collection stations will cease to operate in due course, except those under a Build, Operate and Transfer contract. 

Quyen said the ministries of Transport and Finance are working together to prepare invoice demands for the fees for each vehicle owner by next week. 

The Transport Ministry had earlier suggested that road-use fees for cars would be from 180,000 VND to 1,440,000 VND (9-70 USD) per month, payable by ticket purchase, with quarterly and annual tickets available. Motorbikes would pay 80,000 to 150,000 VND (4-7.5 USD) per year in one instalment. 

Cars owners could pay their fees at registered centres while motorbike owners would pay their fees at collection offices designated by local authorities. 

The Ministry of Transport has estimated about 6 trillion VND (286million USD) a year would be collected from road-user fees which, when added to the current State budget for road maintenance, would meet 80 percent of requirements. 

They also calculated that after two years the State budget for maintenance would be reduced and after 12 years the fund would fully cover road maintenance demands.
