The government would have had to pay RM1.978 billion in compensation if the toll on the two highways were abolished, says public works minister Alexander Nanta Linggi. (Bernama pic)PETALING JAYA: Toll rates on the Sungai Besi Expressway (Besraya) and the Kajang-Seremban Expressway (Lekas) will be reduced for all Class 1 vehicles starting tomorrow.

Public works minister Alexander Nanta Linggi said the toll rate will be reduced by 15 sen for Class 1 vehicles passing through the Loke Yew and Mines toll plazas (North & South direction) on the Besraya Expressway.

Meanwhile, the toll rate for Class 1 vehicles travelling on the Lekas Expressway will be reduced from 0.1811 sen/km to 0.1666 sen/km for the closed toll system. The toll rate remains the same for the open toll system, which is at the Ampangan Toll Plaza.

Currently, Class 1 vehicles are charged RM2 on the Besraya Expressway, and RM8.30 for travelling the full length of the Lekas Expressway.

From tomorrow, the toll charges will amount to RM1.85 and RM7.30, respectively.


“The government, with the support and agreement of the toll highway concession company under the management of IJM Corporation Berhad group, has agreed to lower the toll rate effective Jan 1, 2023 at 12.01am,” Nanta said in a statement.

“This was agreed upon by the Cabinet on Dec 21, and the reduction is part of the restructuring of toll rates for these two highways as decided by the government,” he added.

According to Nanta, the restructuring of the toll rates for these two highways will also save the government from having to pay an estimated RM1.978 billion in compensation to the concessionaires involved, if the toll collection was abolished.

“This (saving) can be channeled to other basic needs for the public,” he said.
