Bandar Baru Bangi, Selangor, 5 Mei 2023 - Minister of Works (MOW), YB Dato Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi was invited by the Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM) last Friday to conclude the ceremony of Anugerah Kecemerlangan Personel Industri Lebuh Raya (APKIL) 2022 at Tan Sri M. Yusuff hall.
This ceremony is a token of appreciation for the personnel of the highway industry who had performed excellently. YB Dato Seri Alexander expressed his aspiration for this award that it can motivate their enthusiasm to continue to work more efficiently and innovatively in helping to advance and improve this industry in various aspects such as management, development, and highway services.
A total of seven award categories were presented by Minister of Works and accompanied by the Secretary General of MOW YBhg. Datuk Seri Haji Hasnol Zam Zam Bin Haji Ahmad and LLM Chief Director Dato’ Ir. Mohd Shuhaimi Bin Hassan to 76 award recipients.
Among the award categories received are Achievement Award for Signing a Land Lease Agreement, the Special Excellence Award for Highway Industry Personnel and the Outstanding Service Award (Highway Concession Company Category).
YB Dato Seri Alexander also spoke about efforts to build a more sustainable and competitive highway industry in stimulating the country’s economic growth. For this purpose, the government has agreed to implement the Multi Lane Fast Flow (MLFF) toll collection. The use of MLFF technology will benefit highway users by reducing traffic congestion and speeding up travel times, in addition to improving management and toll collection efficiency for concessionaires.
LLM together with related parties will implement a Proof of Concept (POC) of the MLFF on the Sungai Besi Expressway (BESRAYA) using a combination of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology by the end of October 2023. The implementation of the POC aims to verify the efficiency of the MLFF front end gantry system against the Key Performance Indicators set in highway operators that this technology will work effectively and efficiently in real traffic situations.
The needs and wishes of highway users are the priority of the highway industry. They are the focus of every initiative and decision made by the Government together with LLM and concession companies. This includes ensuring the quality and reliability of highways, providing basic facilities such as rest and treatment areas, emergency assistance and ensuring the safety of highway users.
