Go on. Do this stupid thing like increasing toll rates. And in bad times.
Have you no compassion? Yes, YOU!
Road users will have to pay higher tolls for five major highways beginning March 1.
The highways affected are the North-South Expressway (PLUS), Sprint/Kerinchi/Damansara Link highways, Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Expressway (AKLEH), Sungai Besi Highway and the New Pantai Expressway (NPE).
For the PLUS highway, it will be an increase of 5%.
This means toll charges from Bukit Kayu Hitam in Kedah to Kempas in Johor would increase from RM108 to RM113.40.
A trip from Kuala Lumpur to Ipoh would increase from RM26.50 to RM27.90.
For the Sprint/Kerinchi/Damansara Link highways, it will be an increase of between 30sen and 50sen.
The Sungai Besi Highway will see an increase of 10sen, while the AKLEH and NPE will be increased by 50sen and 40sen respectively.
