KUANTAN (Feb 1): ANIH Bhd, the concessionaire of the Kuala Lumpur-Karak Expressway (KLK) and Phase 1 of the East Coast Expressway (LPT1), is offering a 10% discount for class one vehicle users, in conjunction with the Chinese New Year celebration.
Its executive director Datuk Nik Fauzi Nik Hussein said the discount would be from 12 midnight to 11.59pm on Tuesday.
He added that the discount offer was part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR), which it had implemented since 2011, in appreciation of its customers and to celebrate one of the major festivals in the country.
“We have also drawn up a proposed travelling time schedule to be used as reference for those heading towards the East Coast in a bid to reduce congestion at the Gombak Toll Plaza, Bentong and Karak.
“We expect the traffic peak hours to start at 9am today and on the evening of Feb 4 before the congestion resumes on Feb 9 and Feb 10, as people make their way back to Kuala Lumpur,” he said in a statement today.
Nik Fauzi suggested those heading to Kelantan and Terengganu tomorrow and on Sunday, leave between 6am and 10am or around 5pm to 8pm.
For those travelling to Pahang on the same days, he suggested they start their journey between 12 noon and 3pm or from 7pm to 11pm.
From Feb 8 to Feb 10, those from Pahang are advised to hit the road between 6am and 10am or from 7pm to 10pm, while those from Terengganu should leave from 8am to 11am or from 8pm to 10pm.

“We would like to advise road users to ensure sufficient balance on their Touch ‘n Go or eWallet RFID cards, before starting their journeys as the top-up service lane will be closed,if traffic starts to build up,” he said.
He also said road users could top up or buy new cards from the Customer Services Centre at the toll plazas in Gombak, Bentong, Karak, Temerloh and Kuantan or at the self-service kiosks at the Rest and Services Areas in Genting Sempah, Temerloh and Gambang Toll Plaza. — Bernama
