Discounts for PLUS and ELITE highway users
By TEH ENG HOCK and NURBAITI HAMDAN


KUALA LUMPUR: From Jan 1, PLUS and ELITE highway users will enjoy a 10% discount on toll rates between midnight and 7am.

For instance, those who are travelling from the Jalan Duta toll plaza to the Ipoh Selatan toll plaza will only pay RM23.80 compared to the current rate of RM26.50.

The discount is part of the PLUS Travel Incentive programme introduced by PLUS Expressways Berhad (PLUS) at the Works Ministry here on Tuesday.

According to PLUS managing director Noorizah Abd Hamid, the second incentive is an additional 10% toll discount between midnight and 7am on select six days during festive seasons such as Hari Raya, Chinese New Year, Deepavali and Christmas. The actual dates will be announced by PLUS prior to each festive season.

“This means a single way journey from the Jalan Duta toll plaza to the Ipoh Selatan toll plaza will cost users RM21.40 compared to the RM26.50,” she said.

The third incentive is called PLUS Loyalty Programme. Touch ‘n Go and SmartTag users who spend a minimum of RM200 monthly will enjoy a 5% rebate for their usage on PLUS and Elite highways.

The first and second incentive apply to Class 1 vehicles beginning Jan 1 to Dec 31, 2010.

Meanwhile, the Loyalty Programme is an ongoing programme to encourage the public to migrate to the electronic toll payment system from Jan 1.

Works Minister Datuk Mohd Zin Mohamed, Deputy Secretary-General (Development) of the Works Ministry Datuk Dr Abdul Munit Kasmin and Malaysian Highway Authority director-general Datuk Mohamad Razali Othman were present at the event.

All hopes crashed~!

All dreams collapsed~!

There's only one word in my mind, and i'm gonna spell it out "WTF!!"

This whole plan is STUPID!.. Our government is being run by a bunch of Monkeys? or all $0h41s?

WHats the point of announcing the discount of 10% when we have to travel between 12am to 7am?

Are they encouraging us to travel midnights? Wouldn't it be more dangerous?

All i asked for Christmas is to go back to Ipoh and be with my family more often! Is that too much to be granted?

What about those who used highways such as LDP or KESAS to work? No discounts for them? I use LDP everyday, I pay RM3.20 every day for work. It's not as if the roads are specially made or exceptionally well designed. The roads are so badly tarred with holes here and there. And it is usually crowded and jam with vehicles during peak hours.


I'm totally pissed of with Malaysia. Shameful to live in such a country.
