No toll charges for all motorists who use the Penang Bridge. That is what Pakatan Harapan (PH) pledges if they win the 14th general election, according to a Facebook post by caretaker Penang chief minister Lim Guan Eng.

“Vote for PH and toll charges for the first bridge will be abolished once we take over Putrajaya,” he posted. This comes in response caretaker prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s promise to exempt only motorcyclists from paying toll charges when using both the Penang Bridge and Penang Second Bridge.

“This will be included in the Penang BN manifesto after discussing with state BN leaders,” said Najib at the time. Currently, motorcyclists using the Penang Second Bridge are required to pay RM1.70 per entry into the island, whereas those plying the first bridge from Perai need to fork out RM1.40 per entry.
