PLUS Malaysia has postponed the RFID launch for its closed-system toll plazas in light of the current Covid-19 pandemic. Initially, PLUS had planned to accept RFID payment at its 83 closed toll systems along the north to the south and 10 closed toll systems on the LPT2 (East Coast) by 1 April 2020.
“The safety and personal health of PLUS employees and highway customers are of paramount importance,” said PLUS in a statement. “Hence, all testing and progressive work is halted under the Movement Control Order (MCO).” All work to fully complete RFID readiness on PLUS-operated highways will resume once the MCO is lifted.
RFID payment has already been successfully rolled out at PLUS’ open toll systems from 1 January 2020. The last stage involving the closed toll systems would have meant that all PLUS highways in Malaysia were finally RFID-ready.
According to PLUS Managing Director, Datuk Azman Ismail, PLUS will defer the launch of the RFID payment system to a new date upon the lifting of the MCO.
