The toll hike announcements continue, and one of the 17 highways that have seen an increase in toll rate charges is the Western KL Traffic Dispersal Link System, better known as the Sprint. Highway concessionaire Sistem Penyuraian Trafik Kuala Lumpur Barat has announced that toll charges for the three road sections that make up the expressway network are set to go up on October 15.

Following the increase, Class 1 users will have to pay RM2 at the Damansara toll plaza on the Damansara Link (currently RM1, which doubles the existing rate) and RM2.50 at the Pantai toll plaza on the Kerinchi Link (currently RM1.50, making for an increase of RM1).

The third toll plaza on the Sprint is the Plaza Bukit Kiara toll plaza, which sits on a 5.5 km route linking the LDP to Mont Kiara and is better known to road users as the Penchala Link. The new toll rate will be RM3 (presently, RM2).

The E23 is a 26.5 km-long route considered as a major arterial road system in the Klang Valley, and is divided into three sections, the aforementioned Kerinchi Link, Penchala Link and the Damansara Link, a 9.5 km-long section that begins from Kampung Sungai Kayu Ara and ends at the Jalan Duta-Semantan interchange.
