It’s unbelievable that highway operators have been approved to impose massive and inconsistent hikes in toll rates.
What is the thought process to validate this. Why is there such a big difference in the increase?
It just doesn’t make sense for absolutely the same highways to justify increases of 80% for some whereas 30% for others.
Did they just pluck a figure from the sky and decide that’s what we will force malaysian road users to pay now if they want to use the highway unless of course if they prefer the choice of travelling longer routes or get stuck in massive congestion.
Are we being penalised for shortfalls that may exist in the economy?
Is this a preemptive measure to imported items increasing in price because of the fall in RM which will probably effect prices of at least 60% of products sold in the country.
That should be expected within the next 3 – 6 months. We will definitely feel the pinch, whether we live in urban cities, smaller towns or rural villages when “30% additional inflation” suddenly kicks in.
Could this be the final straw that break the camels back? Just wondering…..
