NO TOLL HIKE UNTIL END 2017
KUALA LUMPUR: Works Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof said yesterday the government has blocked toll hikes for eight concessionaires this year and four next year. “The Cabinet decided on Oct 12 to reject the proposal to adjust toll rates for 2016 and 2017. There will be no toll hikes for 2016 and 2017.” He said it cost the government RM59.77 million to compensate the four toll concessionaires – Eastern Dispersal Link (EDL), KajangSeremban Highway, Senai-Desaru Expressway and the Guthrie Corridor Expressway. However, he did not provide the costs for the eight concessionaires.
