PLUS Expressways Berhad today announced an almost 20 per cent discount on toll charges between midnight until 7am for six days in conjunction with the coming Deepavali festival holidays.
Its managing director Datuk Noorizah Abd Hamid in a statement said road users would be able to enjoy the benefit on top of the current daily 10 per cent discount for first class category of cars on the Plus and Elite expressways during the off-peak times.
For the Deepavali period the discount will be on Nov 1,2,3, 8, 9 and 10 and for cars that exit and pay charges at Plus, Elite and second-link toll plazas excluding the Bukit Kayu Hitam toll plaza, Bangunan Sultan Iskandar, Johor Bahru Causeway, Tanjung Kupang toll plaza and the Butterworth-Kulim highway.
“The discount is part of the Plus’ travelling incentive programme for motorists who use the highways outside the busy periods,” she said.
Noorizah said the programme was to enable the customers enjoy a more comfortable and smooth travelling during the festive season.
The statement also advised road users who planned to start their journey during the night or early morning to take the necessary precaution to avoid any unforseen incidents.
