LLM taken to task over misleading signboard
Thursday August 27, 2009
THE Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM) has come under fire from Kajang Municipal councillors for refusing to remove a signboard leading roadusers on a longer route to Sungai Long via the Silk Highway and for forcing them to stop at three toll booths.
Longer route: The sign to Sungai Long on the Silk Highway en route to Kajang from Seremban, Putrajaya and KLIA leads motorists to three toll booths while the signboard to the same destination at Exit 1807 is partially hidden

“LLM can instruct the Silk Highway concessionaire to remove the signboard to Sungai Long en route to Kajang from Seremban, Putrajaya and the KL International Airport (KLIA) because motorists will have to travel 16.6km and pay RM3 in toll.
“The turning to Kajang at Exit 1807 also leads to Sungai Long but the sign is not prominently displayed. Why is this so when the route is only 8.8km and there is only one toll charging RM1?” asked Tan.
