A multi-lane free flow (MLFF) toll system is expected to be implemented nationwide in 2025, says the Works Ministry.

Deputy Works Minister Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Mohamad said when winding up his ministerial replies on Budget 2023 at the committee stage in Dewan Rakyat on Monday (March 20), adding that the ministry would also adopt an open payment system for toll in the near future to allow motorists to use credit cards to pay instead of with only Touch n' Go cards.

Interjecting, Datuk Seri Jalaluddin Alias (BN-Jelebu) said studies on the MLFF system should be sped up, adding that the number of cars nationwide would have tripled by 2024, and suggested for the Works Ministry to look into implementing a toll system where booths catered to all payment forms, instead of its current segregated nature.
