KAJANG: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak today announced the abolition of the RM1 toll at the Batu 9 Toll Plaza heading to Kuala Lumpur and the 90 sen toll at the Batu 11 Toll Plaza heading to Kajang on the Cheras-Kajang (Grand Saga) Highway effective midnight tonight.
Najib said the decision by the government would help reduce the burden of frequent users of the highway by 50 per cent, a reduction in toll charges from RM3.80 to RM1.90 for a return trip.
“This has been championed for by the Barisan Nasional (BN) government since 2009 and today the government has made it a reality,” he said after performing the groundbreaking ceremony for the Sekolah Rendah Jenis Kebangsaan (SRJK) Cina Bandar Sungai Long project here.
At the function, the prime minister also handed over a cheque for RM4.5 million to assist in defraying the cost of building the school.
The school which will be built on a 2.4 hectare site will have 36 classrooms and be able to accommodate 1,500 pupils.
