RM67m In AWAS Compounds Collected From 2015 To Jan
KUALA LUMPUR, Mar 29 – A total of RM67 million in compounds were collected through the implementation of the Automated Awareness Safety System (AWAS) from 2015 until Jan this year, the Dewan Rakyat was told. The Transport Ministry said this in a written reply to M. Kulasegaran (DAP-Ipoh Barat) who wanted to know the revenue derived from the collection of fines imposed based on the speed trap cameras installed along the roads.
AWAS was previously known as the Automated Enforcement System (AES). Replying to a question on the delays of the Electric Train Service (ETS) railway service, the ministry said it was due to the closure of the railway in stages along the 41-km stretch of the Rawang to Salak Selatan sector to enable upgrading works to be carried out on the railway infrastructure and system in the Klang Valley Phase One.
“Hence, the Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) trains had to operate with one railway according to the speed limits set. However this issue of delays will be solved in stages until the project is fully completed by November 2019,” said the ministry.
It added that KTMB would constantly make announcements through various mediums such as at the stations, on trains or social media concerning any changes in travel time schedules, especially on delays of trains so that commuters could make early preparations. — Bernama
