Take Back Highways?

Article today in The Sun

DAP's Ops RESTORE ("Restructure Toll Rates & Equity") Team handed over our preliminary findings on the toll concessions to the Ministry of Works yesterday morning - will blog the contents later.

But I thought it was rather interesting that I received another anonymous email, in it which suggested that the RM75 million compensation for LITRAK was only for 2007 and 2008 (which I'll further verify with the works minister) and another interesting comment as follows:
If the toll rates are imposed as per the CA (Concession Agreement), there will be ZERO compensation and I do not understand why the Government would even think of spending RM1.4 Billion for expropriation, as per you statement.
Ummm... if the government doesn't pay the compensation, the rakyat will have to pay to make up the extra 50 sen no?
