In conjunction with the upcoming Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations, Anih Bhd which is the concessionaire for Kuala Lumpur-Karak Expressway (KLK) and East Coast Expressway Phase 1 (LPT 1) has announced some discounts for road users as well as its Travel Time Advisory (TTA).
Road users who make electronic payments on the two highways will receive discounts of 10% for 24 hours from 12.00am Wednesday, July 6.
Anih director Nik Fauzi Tan Sri Nik Hussein said in a statement all road users, especially on LPT 1, are encouraged to pay tolls electronically not only to benefit from the discount but also to ease their travels.
“This discount is part of Anih Bhd’s sosial responsibility commitment to the users of KLK and LPT 1, as well as a sign of gratitude to the users who have always supported our highway services,” he said.
Meanwhile, the TTA is part of Anih’s efforts to help road users drive back to their hometowns in comfort using KLK and LPT 1 during peak hours in the festive season.
It emphasises traveling trends from July 2 to 3 for those driving back to the East Coast and July 9 to 10 for those returning to Kuala Lumpur.
“We expect the number of vehicles using KLK and LPT 1 to increase to 264,258 a day during peak times, which is an 87% increase from normal days which is recorded at around 141,000 vehicles a day.
“Peak times are estimated to begin from July 1 to 3 and July 8 to 10,” added Fauzi.
The annual TTA which Anih introduced in 2009 comprises of staggered travel suggestions based on certain times and destinations from the Klang Valley to states and major cities on the East Coast.
It’s constructed based on analysis of travel movement during peak times at every previous year’s festive season.
It was introduced to improve traffic flow as well as reduce congestion on major highways, toll plazas as well as rest areas during peak times.
Drivers can get latest traffic information on KLK and LPT 1 through Anih’s social media accounts on Twitter and Facebook, LPT-Line at 09-5479111, electronic signboards at selected locations as well as through traffic reports on mainstream national radio stations.
