Beginning 9 September 2015, the Jitra and Bukit Kayu Hitam toll plazas on the North-South Expressway (NSE) will handle all toll transactions electronically via PLUSMiles cards, Touch ‘n Go cards or SmartTAGs.
In light of this, PLUS Malaysia Berhad (PLUS) will be conducting various promotions to ensure a smooth transition for users at both toll plazas to pay toll electronically. These include the sale of RM5 PLUSMiles cards (with pre-loaded RM5 value) since July until 31 December and sales of SmartTAG units at RM96 per unit (inclusive of GST) at both toll plazas (as compared to the normal price of RM127.30 (inclusive of GST) elsewhere) until 30 September.
Additionally, motorists paying toll electronically at the Jitra and Bukit Kayu Hitam toll plazas will enjoy a 20% toll rebate for electronic toll transactions between 1 September and 31 December.
PLUS Chief Operating Officer, Mohammad Fuad Khusairi said as of current, only 50% of users at both toll plazas are paying toll electronically. Going with a full electronic toll system is aimed at facilitating smoother transactions at toll plazas.
Ten other toll plazas across the country which include the Penang Bridge toll plaza, the Lunas and Kubang Semang toll plazas on the Butterworth-Kulim Expressway (BKE), Dato’ Keramat toll plaza (AKLEH), Ayer Panas, Batu and Sentul Pasar toll plazas (DUKE highway) as well as Gombak and Bentong toll plazas on LPT1 will implement this initiative on 9 September.
These will add on to other areas where the electronic toll collection initiative was successfully implemented at the Sultan Iskandar Building (2008), Linkedua highway (in stages since 2009), Kempas toll plaza (2014), Batu Tiga and Sungai Rasau (November 2014) and Mambau and Lukut toll plazas on the Seremban-Port Dickson Highway (SPDH) in June.
