20% Discount on the Toll Rates for CNY 2016
Kuala Lumpur, 27 January 2016: In ushering the year of the Monkey, Jambatan Kedua Sdn Bhd (JKSB) is offering a 20% discounts on the toll rates for all vehicle classes at Jambatan Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah (JSAHMS).
The 20% discounts are offered to all vehicle classes from 12:00am to 11:59pm on 8 February 2016.
“As usual, the 20% discounts of toll rates for all vehicle classes is part of our on-going Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives and also to show our sincere appreciation and gratitude to all of our users,” says YBhg. Dato’ Ir. Dr. Ismail Mohamed Taib, Managing Director of JKSB.
The discounted rates for all vehicle classes on 8 February 2016 are as follow:
|Date||Vehicle Classes||Current Rate (RM)||Discount Rate||Discounted Rate (RM)|
8 February 2016
Those who are entering the bridge via JSAHMS Toll Plaza at Batu Kawan and from PLUS Highways via Plaza A of Bandar Cassia Integrated Toll Plaza will be enjoying this rate.
In 2015, close to 100,000 vehicles used JSAHMS during the Chinese New Year and weekend holiday to get to Penang Island from the Mainland and vice versa.
“We are expecting the daily numbers of vehicles using JSAHMS to Penang Island will increase by at least 20% once the new Bayan Lepas Expressway, under the purview of Jabatan Kerja Raya (JKR) is completed and opened to the public in the second quarter of 2016,” continues YBhg. Dato’ Ismail Mohamed Taib.
The new Bayan Lepas Expressway will provide a direct access from Batu Maung to Bayan Baru, near Queensbay Mall and then straight to Georgetown in the northern part of the island; by passing the ‘notorious’ traffic jam at the Free Trade Zone (FTZ).
By June 2016, JKSB will also implement a full Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) system at JSAHMS Toll Plaza in Batu Kawan. With the implementation, all vehicles crossing to Penang Island at this toll plaza will have to pay the toll only via Touch n Go card or Smart Tag only.
Currently, the awareness campaign on the full ETC implementation has already been executed via the Variable Messaging Systems (VMS), the official Facebook and Twitter accounts, including banners at the toll plaza.
For updates on the ETC implementation or any other promotions, users are encouraged to follow JKSB official twitter account at @jsahmsofficialand Facebook account at www.facebook.com/jsahmsofficial.
