Tolls on six major highways in the Klang Valley will be reduced beginning October 20, according to caretaker Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

The Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (Akleh), the Guthrie Corridor Expressway (GCE), the Kemuning-Shah Alam Highway (LKSA), and the Kajang Dispersal Link Expressway are all affected (SILK).

The Kajang-Seremban Highway (Lekas) and the Besraya Highway, on the other hand, will only see lower tolls on January 1 of next year.

According to Ismail Sabri, the decision to lower tolls on the first four highways was made in a Cabinet meeting on May 18, and the final two on June 1, before Parliament was dissolved on October 10.



He also stated that the government agreed on March 4 to widen the Kuala Lumpur-Karak Expressway (KLK) from the Gombak toll plaza to the Bentong toll plaza by adding a new lane in an effort to alleviate traffic congestion.



He also stated that a new tunnelled road would be built in Genting Sempah to accommodate heavy traffic and reduce congestion.



He also stated that flood mitigation work will be carried out on the East Coast Expressway Phase 1 in order to manage the area’s frequent floods.



All of these improvements took toll rate restructuring into account, with supplementary concession agreements being finalised.



Through this most recent restructuring, the government has saved approximately RM8.8 billion in compensation that would otherwise have been paid to the concessionaires involved.
