Gerakan: Declassify NSE deal

Postby admin » Mon Jan 05, 2009 2:32 am

IPOH: Another Barisan Nasional component party has asked the Works Ministry not to confine the declassification of highway concessions to 16 agreements.

Gerakan Rakyat deputy president Datuk Chang Ko Youn said it was disappointing that the agreement for the North-South Expressway (NSE) was not opened up.

“The bone of contention among motorists using the NSE is the automatic toll increase every three years.

Chang said PLUS, as operator of the NSE, should take into consideration their social corporate responsibility.

IPOH: Gerakan deputy president Datuk Chang Ko Youn wants the contents of the highway concession agreement for the North-South Expressway (NSE) to be made public.

Chang, speaking to reporters after a talk at the state party headquarters, yesterday said: "The government should open up the highway agreement for all to see. Mistakes in the past have already been made. There is no harm to let people know."

He observed that other highway concession agreements were going to be made public, but not that with Projek Lebuhraya Utara Selatan (PLUS) for the NSE -- the country's first, longest and most heavily used highway.

He blamed inexperience for the clause that allowed the concessionaire to raise the toll rates every three years.
