Toll rates along several major highways will go up between 20 sen and RM3 from Thursday, 15 October.

This comes after the Land Transport Commission (SPAD) said LRT and Monorail fares will go up next month. SPAD did not reveal the new rates.

Unlike in previous years, the toll hike announcements are done by the concesionaires in separate statements to the media, and not through the government. The seventeen (17) affected highways are:

  • Kajang Traffic Dispersal Ring Road (SILK),
  • Duta-Ulu Kelang Expressway (DUKE),
  • Maju Expressway (MEX),
  • Kuala Lumpur-Karak Highway (KLK),
  • KL-Kuala Selangor Expressway (LATAR),
  • SMART Tunnel,
  • New Pantai Expressway (NPE),
  • Besraya Highway,
  • Lebuhraya Kajang-Seremban (LEKAS),
  • Guthrie Corridor Expressway (Guthrie),
  • Kemuning Shah Alam Expressway (LKSA),
  • Ampang Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (AKLEH),
  • Cheras-Kajang Expressway (Grand Saga),
  • Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong (LDP),
  • Sprint Expressway,
  • Senai-Desaru Expressway in Johor, and
  • Butterworth Outer Ring Road (BORR) in Penang.

SILK Holdings Bhd said on Monday that it would raise the toll for cars to RM1.80. For vehicles with two axles and five or six wheels (except for buses), the new rate is RM3.60.

The toll rates for cars using the DUKE will be increased to RM2.50 at the Ayer Panas, Sentul Pasar and Kampung Batu toll plazas respectively.

MEX will increase its rates for cars to RM2 and RM3.50 at the Salak South toll plaza and Putrajaya toll plaza, respectively.

Motorists will also see an increase in charges for the KLK. Road users will be required to pay RM6 at the Gombak toll plaza and RM3.50 at the Bentong toll plaza.

For LATAR, the new rates will be RM2.50 at the Ijok, Kuang Timur, Kuang Barat, Templer plaza toll and RM1.30 for Kundang Timur, Kundang Barat.

As for SMART Tunnel, the new rate is RM3 while for Akleh it is RM2.50.

For NPE, vehicles having two axles and three or four wheels (excluding taxis and buses) will have to pay RM2.30 for Pantai Dalam and PJS5 toll plazas, and RM1 for PJS2 toll plaza.

Besraya's new rate is now RM2 for both Mines' north and south toll plazas.

For LEKAS, the rates are RM1.30, RM3.40, RM4.80 and RM6 for the Semenyih, Pajam, Mantin and Setul exits respectively.

The new toll rate for Guthrie is RM1.90 for all its plaza tolls while LKSA will be RM1.70 for Sri Muda toll plaza and RM0.90 for the Alam Impian toll plaza.

The hikes in BORR range from 10 sen to 90 sen while the hikes in the Senai-Desaru Expressway are between RM0.40 to RM 4.70.

Last November, Putrajaya decided to postpone raising the toll rates for 20 highways across the country that were supposed to increase this year.

Putrajaya said it had to forked out nearly RM560 million to concessionaires last year as compensation to maintain toll charges.

The last major toll hike took place more than 8 years ago, in 2007, when the government raised prices on the Damansara-Puchong Expressway (LDP), from RM1 to RM1.60.

 

The new toll rates.Klang Valley motorists will face these new highway toll rates come this Thursday.
