Beautiful scenary of the surrounding peaks.



Cloud-shrouded mountains in the distance. Angels must live in some of them.

Malaysian Toll System

Touch 'n Go
What's Touch 'n Go

Touch ‘n Go card is an electronic purse that can be used at all highways in Malaysia, major public transports in Klang Valley, selected parking sites and theme park.

Touch ‘n Go uses contactless smartcard technology. The card looks similar to a credit card. User can continue using the card as long as it is pre-loaded with electronic cash. User can reload the card at toll plazas, train stations, Automated Teller Machines, Cash Deposit Machines, Petrol kiosks and at authorised third party outlets. Reload denomination is ranging from RM20 to RM500.

Touch ‘n Go enhances the speed of paying for low value but high frequency transactions. Apart from the speed, it is also very convenient because user no longer need to prepare for small change or wait in queue at the cash lane to complete the transaction.

What's SmartTAG



SmartTAG is the Malay acronym for “Sistem Membayar Automatic Rangkaian Tol,” or literally means Automatic Payment System For Toll Network.

It is a vehicle on-board unit that works in combination with the Touch ‘n Go card to allow user to pay toll with drive-through convenience.

SmartTAG transmits information between the Touch ‘n Go card and the toll system via infrared at the dedicated lane. The system can detect a vehicle as fast as 40 milliseconds and vehicle throughput is 4 times faster than cash lane.

At a smaller toll plaza where there is no SmartTAG lane, user can take out the Touch ‘n Go card from the SmartTAG and use it at the Touch ‘n Go lane instead.

The SmartTAG unit uses an easily replaceable 9V alkaline battery. The devise comes with a standard one-year warranty.

RM50 for Smart Tag offer
By SARBAN SINGH

SEREMBAN: The Smart TAG transponder will cost only RM50 for the next three months in conjunction with the 50th Merdeka Day celebrations.

The normal price for a unit is RM100.

The price for a Touch ‘n Go card will also be halved to RM5 during this period.

Works Minister Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said the Government, in collaboration with the 22 toll concessionaires and Rangkaian Segar Sdn Bhd, had agreed to offer the package to encourage more motorists to go electronic.

He said 30,000 Smart TAGs and 150,000 Touch ‘n Go cards would be offered.

“However, each motorist will only be allowed to buy one set,” he said, adding that it was a good time to buy the gadget which cost RM240 when it was introduced.

Motorists will now pay RM65 for a set, which will include RM10 prepaid credit.

Samy Vellu said the campaign would be held in stages with 2,000 Smart TAGs and 10,000 Touch ‘n Go cards up for sale in June and July respectively.

In June, the items will be on sale from Mondays to Fridays at the Rawang, Sungai Buloh, Kota Damansara, Jalan Duta and Sungai Besi toll plazas.

Motorists will be able to get them at the Penang Bridge, Elite Expressway and Linkedua in Johor next month.

In August, the items will be available at all toll plazas.

Samy Vellu said that at present, only 40% of motorists passing through toll plazas use the electronic system.

At the Penang Bridge, about 60% of motorists use the facility.

He urged motorists to grab the offer as the Smart TAG lanes could process 900 transactions an hour compared with 240 at the manual lanes.

“Also, the same system would form the basis for the gantry system which we hope to introduce soon,” he told reporters after opening PLUS’ northbound R&R area on the North-South Expressway near here.

Under the gantry system, motorists need not stop to pay toll at the booths. Deductions would be made automatically from their prepaid toll cards, almost similar to the present Smart TAG system.

The construction for both expressways are in progress. I travelled along E6 Expressway (Elite Expressway) last month and saw the expressway construction in progress near a "stub" flyover above the E6. The stub flyover was purposely built to make way for the SKVE.

About the Senai-Desaru Expressway, the construction is also in progress, but what's visible for now is the Senai-Pasir Gudang section. The Pasir Gudang-Desaru section will be the final section completed for the expressway.

Construction of the East Coast Expressway began in 2000, with Phase 1 opened in August 2004. Phase 2 of the expressway, which will extend the highway to Terengganu, is under construction.

Semantan Bridge is the longest highway bridge in the East Coast Expressway network. It bridges the Pahang River in Pahang, Malaysia. This bridge was opened when the East Coast Expressway was built. It crosses the Pahang River, the longest river in west Malaysia. At the entrance of the bridge there are 2 elephant trunks which symbolize Pahang. There also many colorful lights around this bridge. This bridge was opened by Sultan of Pahang, Sultan Ahmad Shah on 22 April 2004. Near the bridge is the Temerloh Rest and Service Area
