RFID down at DUKE highway, use TnG/SmartTAG

The RFID toll collection system is down at DUKE and SPE highways this morning, so users are advised to use the Touch n Go and SmartTAG lanes at the moment to avoid getting stuck.

If you plan to use the DUKE highway today and are a RFID user, it would be a good idea to ensure your Touch n Go card has sufficient balance. According to the announcement on DUKE highway’s social media account, Touch n Go eWallet is mentioned as not working as well so it means PayDirect is not working on Touch n Go/SmartTAG lanes, thus physical card balance is required.

The last time there was a report of the RFID toll system being down was two days ago on the PLUS highway. Let’s hope this does not become more frequent moving forward.

    This imply we still need to maintain our touch n go card balance. Rfid is still not reliable enough

    Open the tolls until payment system is fixed. Not customers’ fault but still want to cause inconvenience to road users. The authorities need to mandate this for future occurrences.

      Agree. Their problems transfer to customer. At the end, users always rugi no matter what happened to them. Their rugi, increase toll, user fork out money. Extend concession, gomen fork out taxpayer money to compensate. Toll boom broken, let user stuck and go figure on roadside. Damn this manipulation system.
