Malaysian motorists, take note!

The “Stormwater Management And Road Tunnel” or “SMART Tunnel” will start implementing an electronic toll collection system via only the Touch ‘n Go or SmartTAG for faster payments soon. The announcement was made via their official Twitter just today:

According to SMART Tunnel’s chief operating officer, Mohd Fuad Kamal Ariffin, Touch ‘n Go cards will be sold in toll lanes especially to those who do not have the card.

  1. Jitra Toll Plaza, North-South Expressway (PLUS)
  2. Bukit Kayu Hitam Toll Plaza (PLUS)
  3. Lunas Toll Plaza, Butterworth-Kulim Expressway (BKE)
  4. Kubang Semang Toll Plaza (BKE)
