imageUPDATE #2: Read this post for a nice analysis.

The government has announced the new rates for five highways, ending our anticipation ever since the announcement back in late November this year. The list below shows 7 new toll rates, as some of the highways have more than one toll points.

Cost of living is going up, and this is our new year’s gift I suppose, hopefully this is the only new year’s gift we’ll get – another rumoured one is a petrol price hike of which RON97 grade petrol is expected to hit the psychological limit of more than RM2 per litre. RON97 petrol is currently priced at RM1.92 per litre.

LDP – RM1.60 (previously RM1)
KESAS – RM2.20 (previously RM1.50)
Cheras-Kajang, Batu 9 – RM 1 (previously 70 sen)
Cheras-Kajang, Batu 11, 90 sen (previously 60 sen )
KL-Karak-Gombak – RM5
KL-Karak-Bentong – RM3 (previously RM2.50)
Guthrie Corridor – RM1.40 (previously RM1)

UPDATE: Brace yourselves, for the toll rates for the following highways will come under “review” for 2008, and you know what are the results of reviews, always a hike!

North South Highway (Plus)
Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway
North South Expressway Central Link (Elite)
Seremban-Port Dickson Highway
New North Klang Straits Bypass (Shahpadu)
Malaysia-Singapore Second Link
