After a seven-month delay, the members of the Slovak Parliament approved the new bill on the intelligent transport systems in road traffic effective from 15 October 2012, which brings Slovakia in line with the EU framework on establishment of such transport systems from July 2010. As part of the legislation, the National Transport Information System (NSDI), which is expected to cost up to US$195.87 million, will be created to collect, process and share road transport information according to the EU regulations. The National Transport Information Centre (NDIC) will also be created as part of the NSDI.
