TOL PLUS

PLUS has revealed its customary travel time advisory (TTA) for the coming Chinese New Year (CNY) holidays. The TTA is focused on improving traffic distribution on the North-South Expressway between February 5 and 14, 2016.

The company anticipates that up to 1.6 million vehicles may be on to the North-South Expressway during peak periods this season, so you may want to pay close attention to the advisory tables here.

“We advise the public planning to travel on the NSE to follow the TTA. Based on our studies, higher adoption rate of the TTA by the public for outbound and inbound journeys have resulted in smoother traffic flow on the mainline,” said PLUS managing director, Dato’ Noorizah Hj Abd Hamid.

PLUS also mentioned that it will be working hard to improve its overall highway operations and level of service during the upcoming festive season. Among these initiatives, Noorizah included that more staff will be deployed at its highways and traffic monitoring centres.

There will also be an increase in PLUSRonda, emergency rescue, and tow truck teams on the road. These will be stationed at strategic locations throughout the NSE. Additional parking spaces and portable toilets will also be made available at major rest areas.

In a bid to further encourage road users to transition to electronic toll payment methods, PLUS has also confirmed that it is offering a 30% toll rebate for road users that go cashless on the North-South Expressway (NSE), New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE) and ELITE highway this festive season.

Do note that the rebates will not be made on the spot – highway users will be required to pay the full sum first. The 30% toll rebate can be redeemed when you reload your Touch ‘n Go or PLUSMiles cards at any PLUS customer service centre between March 15 and June 14, 2016.
