More highways see hike in toll rates, LDP, SPRINT and Penchala Link included



There’s no saying more fitting than “when it rains, it pours”. Come 12.00am of 15 October, most major highways in the Klang Valley will see a jump of toll rates from between 20 sen to RM3. Yesterday, we reported about a dozen highways involved in the move, but it’s now confirmed that LDP or (Damansara-Puchong Expressway), SPRINT and Penchala Link will not be spared.

The new rates for Class 1 vehicles on the LDP is RM2.10up 50 sen from the previous RM1.60. This applies to all four plazas at Puchong north and south, Penchala and Petaling Jaya. Class 2 vehicles will now pay RM4.20 (up RM1.00) instead of RM3.20; Class 3 vehicles’ new rate is RM6.30 (before this it was RM4.80) and taxis or Class 4 vehicle will pay an addition 30 sen at RM1.10. Buses on the other hand, which fall under the Class 5 category, will pay the same RM1.60.

Another high-traffic expressway involved is the Western KL Traffic Dispersal Link System or SPRINT highway. Two toll plazas are affected – Damansara and Pantai, both of which will cost RM2.00 and RM2.50 for Class 1 vehicles with each toll up by RM1.00 respectively. Last but not least is the Penchala Link Bukit Kiara toll. It will now cost RM3.00 – also costing RM1.00 more for Class 1 vehicles.
