Highways jammed with returning city folk

KUALA LUMPUR: Traffic heading to Kuala Lumpur on the North-South Expressway was slow and congested at certain stretches yesterday, as many people returned to the city after the Chinese New Year and Federal Territories Day holidays.

A spokesman of the Traffic Control Centre at Plus Expressways Berhad said the congestion occurred on the highway from Port Dickson heading towards the Seremban R&R area; before the Juru toll plaza heading to Tambun; from Kuala Kangsar to the Sungai Perak R&R and from Ipoh to Simpang Pulai.

There was also congestion from just before the entrance to the Menora Tunnel heading towards Ipoh; from Gopeng to Tapah; from Bidor to Slim River and from Rawang to Rawang Selatan.

A Malaysian Highway Authority spokesman reported slow traffic and congestion from Port Dickson heading towards Nilai; from the Juru toll plaza heading towards Bukit Tambun and from the Bentong and Gombak toll plazas heading to the city.

He also said several accidents along the highway also contributed to the traffic congestion.
