Electronic Toll Collection with RFID system to be fully implemented by 2020

Today, nine toll plazas on the East Coast Expressway Phase One (LPT1) went cashless this afternoon with the full implementation of the Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) system.

These toll plazas are located at Karak, Lanchang, Temerloh, Chenor, Maran, Sri Jaya, Gambang, Kuantan and Jabor.

Concessionaire Anih Berhad executive director Datuk Nik Fauzi Nik Hussein said there was no system breakdown or congestion on the first day where everything went smooth at all 57 lanes at the toll plazas.

He further commented that the company has installed self-service kiosks at R&R in Temerloh and Gambang for users to buy or top up their Touch ‘n Go cards.

The RFID technology using the special sticker will be implemented in stages throughout the country at selected toll plazas.

At the current stage, they will still be suing obstacle bar until they are satisfied with the legal framework provided.

They targeted by the year 2020 at least one lane in every 177 toll plazas across the country to have an RFID system.
