Over the years, many steps have been taken to improve the development of our country. The hectic traffic, especially in Klang Valley has been “tormenting” Malaysians mentally for many years, and the government MIGHT just have a solution for that. 

Just recently, the Ministry of Works (KKR) revealed that they aim to implement the Multi-Lane Free Flow (MLFF), a non-stop toll collection system on all highways in Malaysia by 2025, which will lead to the abolishment of toll booths.

It is an effort to reduce the traffic congestion at toll plazas, which many of us can definitely relate to. With the implementation of MLFF, vehicles do not need to stop to pay tolls as the boom barriers will no longer be present when the new toll system comes into play.

Senior Works Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof said the proposal had been approved by the Cabinet, and the next step will involve discussion with toll concession companies.

“We will negotiate on how it will be implemented to ease the road users,” he explained.

Soon after the negotiation, the integration of the MLFF system will be focused on where a command centre managed by the Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM) will be established.

Safety first 

On the road, safety is always of the utmost importance. To improve the safety of road users, Fadillah said that the Ministry will develop a sensor known as “Weigh In Motion” to detect overloaded vans and lorries on the road.

It is done not only to ease the traffic but also to preserve the quality of the road, as reported by Sin Chew. Additionally, a lot of money was involved in the installation of the sensors.

“The Ministry received an allocation of RM50 million to install the motion sensors.”

The sensors will automatically detect overloaded vehicles and trucking companies that violate the weighing rule will be subjected to legal action.

Fadillah also highlighted how the traffic has worsened after the transition into endemicity, where the never-ending congestion causes emotional stress to road users, and directly affects their productivity.

At the time of writing, the MLFF system has been adopted by many countries, such as South Africa, Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States of America. Malaysia is not the only Asian country that will soon follow in the footsteps as Indonesia is also considering the system.

2025 is less than three years away, and fellow road users, do you think this will partially solve the traffic congestion?
