KUALA LUMPUR, 18 Jan 2017:
Class 1 vehicle users who pay the toll electronically will be able to enjoy 50% toll discount when travelling along the PLUS highways during the Chinese New Year festive season.
PLUS managing director Datuk Azman Ismail said the rebate would be offered to road users travelling along the North-South and North-South Central Link (ELITE) Highways on Jan 27 and 30 as well as on Feb 3 and 4.
The rebate will be offered to those travelling from midnight to 6am on the dates mentioned.
“With the rebate it is hoped that by the next morning traffic congestion will be reduced along the two PLUS highways as the number of vehicles on these highways is expected to increase from the normal 1.4 million to 1.6 million.”
On these dates, he said electronic payment system users would still be required to pay tolls as usual – the rebate would be credited to their respective Touch ‘n Go or PLUSMiles cards when they reload their cards within a four-month period or from Feb 15 to May 14 at the customer service centres along the PLUS highways.
“We hope with this strategy travellers will plan their journey during the night as this will indirectly help ease traffic during peak hours.”
In addition, Azman said PLUS had also released a Travel Time Advisory (TTA) for the highways, especially for travel between Jan 26 to 31 and Feb 4 and 5.
“We advise the public to abide by the TTA because based on studies the TTA had helped ease traffic congestion.”
In addition PLUS would also deploy 2,130 staff at the toll plazas, increase the number of patrols, mobilise emergency responders and provide additional tow trucks at selected locations.
