Electronic Toll Collection (ETC)

The first expressway that links the capital city of Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville province has finally opened in October 2022. Stretching 187.05 kilometers, the PPSHV Expressway is invested by the China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) and operated by Cambodian PPSHV Expressway Co., Ltd.

Canadia Bank has collaborated with PPSHV Expressway Co., Ltd to provide the customers with a new convenient payment method via Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) when they use the PPSHV Expressway.

The customers can use the ETC lane by equipping their vehicles with Onboard Unit (OBU) devices. At ETC lane, the toll fees are automatically deducted, thus avoiding queuing at the toll gates and enjoying non-stop traveling.

With the Onboard Unit (OBU) readily installed on the vehicle windshield, the vehicle can drive through the ETC lane. The OBU device communicates with OBU detector equipped at the toll gates to identify registered vehicle information and payment will be automatically deducted from customer's account linked to the OBU.

What is Electronic Toll Collection (ETC)?
Electronic toll collection (ETC) is an automatic toll collection system allowing wireless communication between vehicles and toll stations for non-stop toll collection. As you drive into the Toll Gate, maintain a speed below 20 kilometer per hour as you pass the ETC lane. You can enter after the traffic light turns green and the barrier is lifted. Since the toll fee will be deducted automatically, you may exit the PPSHV Expressway once the barrier is lifted.
What is an Onboard Unit Device (OBU)?
OBU refers to the transponder equipment, including a reader device and an E-Pass Card. The OBU device is required to drive through the ETC lane, and it is installed in the vehicle’s windshield and activated by the branch staff before usage. The benefits of using OBU allow drivers to use the ETC lane, and the toll fees are automatically deducted, thus avoiding queuing at the toll gates and enjoying non-stop traveling.
What is the difference between ETC Lane and MTC Lane?
The Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) lane allows drivers to automatically drive through and pay toll fees at the toll gate without stopping the car, while the Manual Toll Collection lane requires drivers to stop the car to pay the tolls by cash or by other cashless payment methods such as QR payment and bank card payment.

What is the meaning of OBU blacklist? What can be done to avoid the blacklist of OBU?
A blacklist means the vehicle is not allowed to drive through ETC lanes at the toll gates. There are various reasons for blacklisting, e.g. your ETC account has insufficient balance or below Security Deposit. In such cases, you can contact our Customer Service Center to find out the reason for the blacklist. To avoid being blacklisted, you should keep your ETC balance above the security deposit and recharge your ETC account before traveling the PPSHV Expressway. Also, OBU can be blacklisted by law enforcement agencies due to any rule violation complaint registered against the vehicle.
What shall I do if the OBU does not work and is unable to pass through the ETC lane?
If the OBU does not work while you are going through the ETC lane, please coordinate with the onsite guidance staff to exit the Manual Toll Collection Lane (MTC) at the toll gate and pay in cash instead. Then, please visit our Canadia Bank counter at ETC Service Center at PPSHV for further investigation of the OBU device.
What should I do if I was forced to pay by cash at the toll, while I had sufficient balance in OBU?
If you are forced to pay by cash though your account has sufficient balance in OBU, please contact our Customer Service Center to log a complaint.
