A fatal accident occurred at the unused Batu Tiga toll plaza this morning, resulting in the deaths of two road users. This is the second time such an incident was recorded at the location, with the first taking place on January 15.

In a report by Bernama, Shah Alam district police chief ACP Baharudin Mat Taib said initial investigations revealed the car was travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Shah Alam. The vehicle was believed to have been speeding before the driver lost control of the vehicle and rammed into a pillar of the toll plaza.

Highway users have urged the authorities to accelerate the demolition of the Batu Tiga and Sungai Rasau toll plazas. Both toll plazas have ceased operations since the start of 2018, in line with Budget 2018 as announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Highway concessionaire PLUS has already announced it is in the final stage of awarding the tender to the contractors that will undertake the demolition works. The company noted the works will be completed by the end of March this year, and it would be carried out in stages.
