in Latest

GEORGE TOWN: Jambatan Kedua Sdn Bhd (JKSB), the concessionaire of the Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah Bridge is offering a 20
per cent discount of the toll rate on all classes of vehicles from midnight on July 17 to 11.59 pm on July 18.

JKSB managing director Datuk Dr Ismail Mohamed Taib said the discount is in conjunction with the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations.

“Similar to last year, this is part of our ongoing corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative in giving back to the society and to show our
gratitude and appreciation, especially to our users who have been using the bridge since its opening in March 2014,” he said in a statement today.

He said on average 12,500 vehicles are using the bridge on a daily basis and this number would increase during long weekends, school holidays or during festive seasons.

“JKSB is expecting an increase of at least by 20 percent of its daily traffic when the new elevated Bayan Lepas Expressway is completed by the Public Works Department in the first quarter of 2016, providing a direct access to Bayan Baru near Queensbay Mall and straight to George Town,” he added.– BERNAMA
