East Coast Expressway 2 (LPT2) toll collection begins

The Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM) has announced that it will begin toll collection on the East Coast Expressway 2 (LPT2) starting from 12.01 am on July 15. The highway, which was opened to traffic from January 31, 2015, is operated by Lebuhraya Pantai Timur 2, a fully-owned subsidiary of PLUS.

The 184 km-long, dual-direction, four-lane LPT2 – built at a cost of RM4.1 billion – runs from Jabor, Pahang to Kg Gemuroh in Terengganu. The expressway, which will enable motorists to travel between Kuala Terengganu and Kemaman in 90 minutes, and between Kuala Terengganu and Kuala Lumpur in four hours, is a follow-up to the 169 km Karak-Kuantan ECE1, itself a continuation of the Kuala Lumpur-Karak Highway.

The LPT2, which has 10 elevated interchanges, three R&R stops and two lay-bys along the route, will operate on a closed toll system, the rate calculated based on tollable distance travelled.

There are 10 toll plazas along the entire length of the LPT 2, and they are located at Cheneh, Chukai, Kijal, Kerteh, Paka, Kuala Dungun, Bukit Besi, Ajil, Telemong and Kuala Terengganu.

For Class 1 (motorcar) users, the toll rate will be 12 sen per kilometre. According to the concessionaire, it will cost a motorist RM19.70 in toll for a journey from the Kuala Terengganu toll plaza to the Cheneh toll plaza.

    Ala… no more free ride. The toilets are still in shamble conditions. After 1 1/2 years in operations, R&Rs are the worst i have encountered. Nothing beats the PLUS highway yet.

    I thought the highway was build using fund from the wang ehsan. Why do we still need to pay toll for it?

    RM 4.1 billion to build …….PLUS and subsidiary will collect profit up to USD 400 billion, then may be, may be, may be only will consider abolishing the toll collection.
    Thank you government for building the highway, with excellently negotiated contract.

    How come they are charging a toll, when all the facilities are not there or are in worst condition?

    The most obvious, there are no gas station!

    Road conditions are so bad, that bumping are almost all the way from the start to the end.

    Food outlet are just like pasar malam stall or worst.

    If they want to charge, they should charge half of the rate or quarter.

    Nothing is fair in this world, but this is utterly unfair!

    The 184 km-long, dual-direction, four-lane LPT2 – built at a cost of RM4.1 billion fully borne by tax payer monies gonna charge toll rate almost on par with PLUS Hiway built and fully funded by private concessionaire (zero tax payer monies here). LPT2 toll is a real rip off scheme.

        LPT2 is the only tolled Highway in the country built & fully funded by federal & state govt at 50:50 with zero gearing (debts). The rest of tolled Highways in the country are private initiatives funded via banks borrowing. Toll collection shld be kept at minimal for maintenance purposes.
