GEORGE TOWN, Nov 6 — All classes of vehicles crossing to Penang Island from the mainland via Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah Bridge (JSAHMS) will enjoy a 20 per cent discount on the toll rate from midnight until 11.59 pm on Nov 10 in conjunction with the Deepavali celebration.
Jambatan Kedua Sdn Bhd (JKSB) managing director Datuk Dr Ismail Mohamed Taib said those entering the bridge via Plaza A at the Bandar Cassia Toll Plaza or the JSAHMS Toll Plaza will enjoy the discount.
“This is part of our corporate social responsibility initiatives, and also a way for us at JKSB to extend our gratitude and appreciation to our users, especially to those who have been using the bridge since its opening last year,” he said in a statement here today.
As of October this year, more than 3.8 million vehicles have used the bridge.
An average of 12,000 vehicles use the bridge daily and the number is expected to grow by at least 20 per cent by the first quarter of next year when the elevated Bayan Lepas Expressway in Batu Kawan is completed. — Bernama
