The government has decided to abolish toll charges gradually and in phases, in line with Pakatan Harapan's (PH) general election pledge to the people.
Sources say that while a study currently being conducted on toll charges will only be finished by June, at least one concessionaire has offered to give rebates and discounts to road users in the meantime.
"It was agreed that tolls would be abolished over time but it will be phase by phase, not immediately," a source with direct knowledge of the matter said.
According to Works Minister Baru Bian, the government would only make a final decision after the study was submitted.
"In fact, we are looking at it at the short term, medium term and long term. There are some proposals that are feasible and can be implemented in the immediate future for the short term.
"These are the things I think Tan Sri Muhyiddin (Yassin) was referring to. Not the whole subject matter of tolls," he said after witnessing the installation ceremony of Parti Keadilan Rakyat Sarawak central zone branches committee members.
Speaking at a ceramah in Semenyih ahead of polling in the by-election for the Selangor state seat on March 2, Tan Sri Muhyiddin had said that PH might issue a statement within the next "day or two" regarding tolls.
