Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) stated it has no plans to impose a road congestion pricing scheme in the city centre when the Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) begins operations, The Sun reports.

“There is no plan to implement a charge system for private cars entering the federal capital after the completion of the MRT project,” said Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Seri Mohd Amin Nordin Abd Aziz, when asked to comment on the report by The Edge.

In last week’s report, DBKL urban planning department senior deputy director Nik Mastura Diyana Nik Mohamad was quoted as saying that the road pricing scheme will be implemented to help reduce the flow of private cars travelling in to the city centre, similar to Singapore’s Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) system.

With DBKL firmly shutting down the idea of a road congestion pricing scheme, do you think this is a right move? Share your thoughts on the matter in the comments below.
