Malaysia expected to install RFID system on all highways

The Malaysian Lower House session entering its fifth week will discuss whether the government will install radio frequency identification (RFID) systems on all highways, and according to an order paper on the Parliament website, some MPs will be questioned in the question-and-answer session on the efforts of the Works Ministry in improving the toll payment system to ensure a seamless experience for road users.

Kuala Lumpur Public Works Deputy Minister Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Mohamad said in the Multi-lane free flow (MLFF) toll collection system to be implemented by the government, it would incorporate Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) systems for smoother traffic flow at toll booths. He said Toll Avenue is currently set up with 416 RFID lanes and understands that the number of RFID lanes allocated to some toll booths is not even. "So that is why we are implementing a multi-lane free-flow toll collection system and we will also be adding RFID and Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) in there to make the traffic smoother and more efficient."

He said the Ministry of Works had also conducted a detailed survey on Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and found that multi-lane free-flow tolling systems were being used in many countries and were working well. "In fact, we have studied many foreign examples to find the best way to implement toll booths, but it is still at the research stage, while we will also test run the system next year to confirm the most suitable system."


 He said this in response to a question from MP Afnan Hamimi of the IFP Alor Setar during a question-and-answer session in the Lower House of the National Assembly.
