Multi-lane free flow highways in three years – MAHCC

The Malaysian Association of Highway Concession Companies (MAHCC) says that all highways across the country will make the transition to a multi-lane free flow system in the next three years when radio-frequency identification (RFID) electronic toll collection is implemented at all toll plazas nationwide.

The association’s president, Datuk Azman Ismail, who is also the MD of PLUS, said the timeframe was workable, as Bernama reports.

“I am confident we can (achieve it within three years). It is not something that we just started, it is work in progress. If you ask some of the concessionaires, most of the equipment is already installed at the lanes, at the pilot stage,” he said.

“We certainly would like to understand more about what other technical issues we face at the pilot stage so that we can resolve (them) and get it launched and implemented as soon as possible. But we obviously cannot do this alone because the highways in Malaysia are so integrated,” he added.

Azman said that because highways in Malaysia integrated with one another, the experience for a user has to be seamless. “As a road user, if you use one highway to get from one location to another, you will probably be using multiple highways before you get to your destination. (So) it has to be seamless. Issues faced must be resolved, not just for one highway but for all highways. That is the beauty about the highway network in Malaysia. We must work together,” he said.

Works minister Baru Bian had earlier said that RFID would be completely up and running in the next couple of years, paving the way for a gateless gantry system to take over from the existing boom gate and toll plaza system.

        idiotic thinking. Why should government give toll free to highway when not whole country tax payers are using the highways. It is completely fair for the toll charge, you use then you pay. If you dont want to pay then take the route without toll, toll is for those who willing to pay and save time.

        If toll free then EVERYONE will drive and we have always stuck in JAM. Look at Thailand Bangkok and Indonesia Jakarta, the traffics are horrible.

        • You only think that tax payers need to pay for other users but thats becoz you have been conditioned to accept that highways must be tolled. Najib’s 1,000km PAN Borneo has proven that a highway can be built without tolls and that it can benefit the whole country.

    If they want to do MLFF they just remove barriers. IR working up to 200Km/H, while passive RFID has problems at 20-40Km/H. They just want to make more money from customers of highways. telling them they have to change a system which works to one which they currently test with guinea-pigs

    If toll free then our public transport WILL NEVER improve due to low rate of passengers. The highest bankruptcy rate in Malaysia is because of “car loan”, despite our national automotive tax rate is so high but still many people keen to own a car. There are thousands of people who actually do not need to drive to work, they drive to work and park the car from 9am until 6pm. The vehicle is under extremely under utilize while the value is keep depreciating everyday.

    Don’t complain the public transport is terrible, our citizens not willing to take it daily and due to low passenger rate the public transport companies suffering huge loss and hardly sustain their business. Do not ever say there are many bangla sit inside buses or trains, who the heck hire bangla and get them take public transport to work. All bangla stay few minutes walk from workplace or company will arrange own shuttle bus for them. If we give thousand of reasons to not take public transport and give thousand of reasons should buy a car, our country bankruptcy rate will never go down.

    singapore has already been using this system since 1998. 21 years ago.

    i don’t understand why so slow for us to adopt?

    another thing is the rfid tag. i heard stories that ours is 1 way based, which is why you must come to almost stop to scan, while singapore is 2 way so you can drive past at whatever speed and it will still detect.

    All sort of sweet talk, syoik-sendiri talk, kopi-shop talk, half-baked idea talk, chest thumping talk, co*k talk, etc by the Govt and the gang.

    The issues of toll abolishment are yet to be solved after so many donkey years, regardless under BN and PH.

    And now, free flow highway?? Yeah right….
