In a parliamentary session, Datuk Seri Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, an opposition Member of Parliament representing PN-Kubang Kerian, has called upon the government to eliminate the tolls at Gombak and Karak to alleviate congestion on the East Coast Expressway (LPT), as reported by NST.

Highlighting the age of the Gombak toll, which is among the oldest in the nation, Tuan Ibrahim emphasized the importance of abolishing it first. He suggested that to alleviate the burden on LPT users, only two entry and exit points should be utilized instead of the current four toll plazas.


According to Works Minister Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi, the federal government does not intend to acquire current highway concessionaires in order to eliminate tolls.

This is because such takeovers were not currently possible because of the serious financial consequences. When the country’s financial and fiscal circumstances allow, the government will, however, take another look at such a suggestion.
