PETALING JAYA: The West Coast Highway project linking Banting to Taiping has been identified as one of the areas for expansion of the North-South Expressway under the 10th Malaysia Plan.

Malaysian Highway Authority director-general Datuk Ismail Md Salleh said the Senawang section has been identified as another stretch for expansion.

“The expansion of the North-South Expressway will be implemented over five years,” he told reporters after the launch of the Touch ’n Go customer service counter at the North Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE) Petronas station here yesterday. Seven highway projects at an estimated cost of RM19bil are among 52 high-impact projects worth RM63bil to be implemented under the 10MP. Other high-impact projects included two coal-powered electricity generation plants and 3,300-acre land development in Sungai Buloh.

Meanwhile, Touch ’n Go users can now reload their cards at no extra charge at the first service counter at the NKVE Petronas station.

The counter, which was opened yesterday, will also sell Touch ’n Go cards and SmartTags as well as offer rebate redemption, card replacement and handling of customer enquiries from 9am to 9pm.
