This paper aims to examine the difference in household income level between sub-urban areas before the construction of Bakauheni-Terbanggi Besar toll road in 2014 and after the construction of the toll road in 2017. The construction of toll road is indicated to be associated with the income of society, the areas located closer to the toll road are inclined to have a higher income level. Furthermore, the construction of toll road creates social-economic opportunities and improve accessibility for society. This research was conducted by using OLS (Ordinary Least Square) Regression as the method to develop transformational changes that occurred in households using the income effect model. It is discovered that there is behavioral correlation both in and between the households that lead to shifting in the work sector, income level, health, and education. It is also revealed that the income level of households that reside closer to the toll road is relatively higher compared to those that reside farther.
