Toll Fares Reduced For Six Klang Valley Highways!

On Thursday, October 13, 2022, the caretaker Prime Minister of Malaysia, Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced a toll fare reduction for six major Klang Valley highways.

The toll fares for these four highways will be reduced on Thursday, October 20, 2022:

  • Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (AKLEH)
  • Guthrie Corridor Expressway (GCE)
  • Kemuning-Shah Alam Highway (LKSA)
  • Kajang Dispersal Link Expressway (SILK)

The toll fares for these two highways will be reduced on Sunday, January 1, 2023:

  • Kajang-Seremban Highway (LEKAS)
  • Besraya Highway

According to Ismail Sabri, the decision to reduce the toll fares for the first four highways was made in a Cabinet meeting on May 18, while the decision to reduce the toll fares for the last two highways was made on June 1.

Parliament was dissolved on October 10, paving the way for the GE15 general elections within 60 days. The fact that this decision was only announced after Parliament dissolution can be seen as an election sweetener.

Ismail Sabri also announced that the government agreed on March 4 to:

  • widen the Kuala Lumpur-Karak Expressway (KLK) and add a new lane from the Gombak toll plaza to the Bentong Toll Plaza, to reduce traffic jams,
  • construct a new tunnelled road at Genting Sempah to accommodate higher traffic and reduce congestion
  • initiate flood mitigation works on the East Coast Expressway Phase 1

All these improvement works took the restructuring of toll rates into account, with supplementary concession agreements being finalised.

Through this latest restructuring, the government has saved approximately RM8.8 billion in compensation that should have been paid to the concessionaires involved. Additionally, highway users can enjoy lower toll rates to ease the cost of living.
