Malaysian Highway to Use RFID Tags for Toll Payments

The Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (Akleh) is preparing to deploy radio frequency identification tags for riders to pay tolls by early next year. The Projek Lintasan Kota Holdings Sdn Bhd (Prolintas) Group expects to implement the RFID system along Akleh, and subsequently on five other highways.

Akleh conducted testing on how to implement RFID on specific types of vehicles, such as police cars. The agency's goal is to eventually move toward a fully electronic payment system, in order to ease traffic flow. The RFID-based system includes a reader that interrogates tags at a range of 27 meters (88.6 feet) with a 10-millisecond response time.

Prolintas, which is wholly owned by Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB), operates Akleh and five other highways. These include the Guthrie Corridor Expressway (GCE), the Kemuning-Shah Alam Highway (LKSA), the Kajang Dispersal Link Expressway (SILK), the Sungai Besi-Ulu Kelang Elevated Expressway (SUKE) and the Damansara-Shah Alam Elevated Expressway (DASH).
