Come early 2021, motorists travelling from the southern region of Malaysia can expect to enjoy a smoother driving experience as the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology will be installed at several highway toll plazas in the area by then.

This update came following the implementation of the RFID pilot tests that are ongoing at nine toll plazas in the northern states, namely Kedah and Penang, since 22 July.

“We are at the trial stage in the northern states, we will try (the RFID system) in Johor, and then we will try for all (open and closed highway system nationwide). We have to test again to gauge the effectiveness of the system and to improve it to benefit over 1.7 million highway users,” said the director-general of the Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM), Datuk Mohd Shuhaimi Hassan.

At present, the RFID technology is already installed at 62 open-system toll plazas, including highways such as the North-South Expressway (PLUS), Shah Alam Expressway (KESAS), and Damansara-Puchong Expressway (LDP). Following that, it was slated for expansion to all toll plazas nationwide – including 83 closed toll systems from the North to South – starting from 1 April 2020. However, the plan was postponed due the implementation of the movement control order (MCO), which began in mid-March.

The implementation of the RFID technology is intended to facilitate the subsequent adoption of a Multi-Lane Free Flow (MLFF) system for a better and speedier toll payment experience. The government aims to achieve its MLFF vision within the next three years.
