Hari Raya gift from highways to Malaysian motorists

KUALA LUMPUR: The Kuala Lumpur-Karak Highway and the East Coast Expressway Phase 1 (ECE 1) will be toll-free from 9pm till 6am on Sept 7, 8, 15 and 16, said Works Minister Datuk Shaziman Abu Mansor.

He said it was a Hari Raya gift to motorists from MTD Group while 24 other expressway concession holders were giving toll discounts up to 40 per cent from 12.01am till 7am from Sept 6 till 8 for the balik kampung rush.

All vehicles, including commercial vehicles like taxis, buses and lorries, are entitled to the incentives, he told reporters after launching a road safety campaign organised by Works Ministry at the Gombak Toll Plaza here today.

He said the incentives would encourage road users to travel outside of peak hours to avoid possible bottle necks on the expressways in the day time.
