GEORGE TOWN: Jambatan Kedua Sdn Bhd (JKSB), theÂ 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 onÂ July 17 to 11.59 pm on July 18.
JKSB managing director Datuk Dr Ismail Mohamed Taib said the discount is inÂ conjunction with the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations.
“Similar to last year, this is part of our ongoing corporate socialÂ responsibility (CSR) initiative in giving back to the society and to show our
gratitude and appreciation, especially to our users who have been using theÂ bridge since its opening in March 2014,” he said in a statement today.
