Klang Valley residents return home after celebrating Hari Raya
KUALA LUMPUR: Klang Valley residents were making their way back home after celebrating the Hari Raya in their hometown today.
Malaysian Highway Authority (MHA) assistant director Mohd Idham Abd Wahab said the traffic flow on the highways from the north, south and east was still high, particularly during the late afternoon.
“Factors such as rain and some minor incidents which occurred at several locations also contributed to the slow movement of vehicles, but traffic is still under control.”
Idham said traffic was expected to continue to increase as the weekend approached.
“Thus, users are recommended to begin the journey back to the capital earlier but to follow the recommendations of the travel time advisory (TTA) released,” he said
Plus Expressway Bhd chief operating officer Mohammad Fuad Khusairi said the highway concessionaire advised motorists planning to return to the Klang Valley this weekend to follow the Plus TTA which is available on its website at www.plus.com.my.
“The TTA is crucial in facilitating smoother traffic flow on the highway, it is aimed at distributing the traffic and prevent everyone from entering the highway at the same time,” he said.
A Plus traffic control centre spokesman said traffic on the North-South Expressway (NSE) was smooth moving.
However, an accident at 2.30pm involving a lorry going north which overturned on the way from Slim River to Sungkai at Km356 caused vehicles to slow down on both sides of the NSE.
Traffic resumed its normal pace an hour after the accident.
