New RFID lanes open ahead of schedule

KUALA LUMPUR: The additional 12 radio frequency identification (RFID) lanes on the North-South Expressway (NSE) have been fully completed and began operations on March 11, says Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi.

The Works Minister said the RFID lanes were originally scheduled to be completed in mid-April, but the work was completed ahead of schedule.

The additional lanes are at toll plazas in Setia Alam, Subang, Jalan Duta, Putra Mahkota, Kajang, Kubang Semang, Sungai Besi, Shah Alam, Sungai Buloh, Rawang Selatan and Penang Bridge.

“I was also assured that this RFID system will be in the best condition.

“I also expect cooperation from RFID users on the NSE to use the same RFID lane or payment mode when entering and exiting the toll plaza.

“Motorists should ensure that their eWallet balance is sufficient before starting the journey for a smoother travel,” he said in a statement on his official Facebook account.

Nanta also congratulated PLUS Malaysia Bhd – the operator of the NSE – for successfully completing the work ahead of schedule.

In January, he announced the additional 12 lanes following complaints by motorists that a lack of such lanes was causing congestion.
