Toll-free travel for Christmas on Dec 23 and 26, says Ahmad Maslan


PETALING JAYA: Highway users will be exempt from paying tolls on highways nationwide on Dec 23 and 26 in conjunction with Christmas celebrations, say Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan.

The Deputy Works Minister said, in a statement Thursday (Dec 21), that the dates were chosen to avoid a concentration of traffic leading to congestion and to optimise logistics.

He also said that the toll exemption would apply at all toll plazas except those at the country's borders, which are the Bangunan Sultan Iskandar (BSI) toll plaza and the Tanjung Kupang toll plaza in Johor.

"It is hoped that this toll waiver will reduce the burden on those who are planning to return to their home towns to visit their families and celebrate Christmas together," Ahmad said.

"Highway users should take advantage of this opportunity and plan their journeys as best as possible while observing the recommended travel time advisory schedule," he said.

Highway users are also advised to focus on safety by observing the speed limits, signage and regulations while on the road.
