Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim has declared the possibility of revisiting toll concessions for highways in the Kuala Lumpur area in the future, contingent on improvements in the country's financial situation.

As reported by FMT, Anwar agreed with the prevailing view that there are currently an excessive number of toll booths around the federal capital. He acknowledged that if the government were to eliminate tolls, compensation would be necessary for the concessionaires. Although existing contractual obligations with these concessionaires are presently binding, Anwar expressed confidence that renegotiations could take place once the nation's financial strength improves.

During a dialogue session at a Madani Rakyat fair, Anwar addressed toll-related issues as challenges inherited from previous administrations. He highlighted the ongoing negotiations initiated by the government on November 17 with highway concessionaires to overhaul tolls for 19 highways.

Abdul Rahman Mohamad, the former deputy works minister, previously mentioned that the 19 highways under negotiation include those managed by various entities such as Amanat Lebuhraya Rakyat, Projek Lintasan Kota Holdings, IJM Corporation, Anih Bhd, and PLUS Malaysia, covering a range of crucial expressways in the Kuala Lumpur region.
