PLUS postpones implementation of RFID lanes at its highways

PETALING JAYA: PLUS Malaysia Berhad (PLUS) has postponed the implementation of the radio-frequency identification (RFID) lanes at all its closed toll highway toll plazas in the country.

PLUS said it had to postpone the launch as all testing and progressive work is currently halted under the movement control order (MCO).

"All work to fully complete RFID readiness on Plus-operated highways will resume once the government’s MCO is lifted.

"Upon completion, all 83 Plus and 10 LPT2 closed system toll plazas will be equipped with RFID facilities," it said in a statement on Tuesday (March 24).

On March 11, Plus annnounced that it would launch the RFID lanes at all its closed toll highway toll plazas including the LPT2 (East Coast) highway starting April 1.

PLUS Malaysia managing director Datuk Azman Ismail said it believes that the MCO was an important move to protect the health, safety and the well-being of not just its employees but also all Malaysians from the threat of Covid-19.

"Based on this principle, we have decided to defer the launch of RFID payment system on PLUS and LPT2 highways to a new date upon the lifting of the MCO," he said.
