PLUS Malaysia Berhad (PLUS) will return to the Tanjung Kupang Toll Plaza off-peak rates to its original standard toll fare from 1st March 2023 onwards.
“With this standardisation, all vehicles passing through the Tanjung Kupang Toll Plaza via the SecondLink highway will be charged as per the present peak hour rates,” PLUS said in its statement.
PLUS advises highway users passing through the Tanjung Kupang Toll Plaza to have sufficient balance in their Touch ‘n Go card and RFID e-Wallet for a smoother journey.
The off-peak hour toll rates were introduced in 2018 at the Tanjung Kupang Toll Plaza as part of a move to encourage the public to utilise the toll plaza to exit and enter Singapore.
“However, after more than 5 years of its implementation, the move received lukewarm responses from highway users, and based on data, the number of daily vehicles at the Tanjung Kupang Toll Plaza remained identical to the traffic volume recorded before the off-peak hour toll rates were offered.”
“There has been no significant increase in traffic during off-peak hours at the Tanjung Kupang Toll Plaza till today.”
Traffic statistics also indicate that more than 50% of the vehicles during off-peak hours at the Tanjung Kupang Toll Plaza are Singapore registered vehicles, the statement ends.
