Selangor Umno thanks PM for abolishing toll collection at Batu Tiga, Sungai Rasau
SHAH ALAM, Oct 29 — The Selangor Umno yesterday thanked Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak on the announcement to abolish the toll collection at Batu Tiga here and Sungai Rasau in Klang, effective Jan 1 next year.
The members gathered in an area near the Batu Tiga Toll Plaza here yesterday, some holding banners with words thanking the prime minister, to make known their gratitude.
Among the leaders present were Selangor Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman Tan Sri Noh Omar, Shah Alam Umno division leader Datuk Azhari Shaari and its Youth leader, Datuk Ahmad Mua’adzam Shah Yaakop.
Noh, when met by reporters, said the proposal to abolish the toll collection, as announced by the prime minister when tabling the 2018 Budget on Friday, followed the continuous efforts by Selangor Umno, especially its Shah Alam division, since 2014.
“So we, on behalf of the Selangor people, thank the prime minister for the announcement on Friday which I believe can help reduce the people’s living cost, especially those commuting the routes to work,” he added.
The toll rate at Batu Tiga is RM1.10 for a one-way trip and RM1 at the Sungai Rasau Toll Plaza. — Bernama
