PETALING JAYA: Highways around the Klang Valley are seeing slow crawling traffic as city folk make their way back from their hometowns after the Hari Raya holidays.
Traffic towards the Klang Valley on the North-South Expressway built up starting from noon yesterday.
The congestion worsened in the afternoon when the number of accidents increased along the highway, according to PLUS’ Twitter posts.
From 8am until 6pm, the busy highway recorded a total of nine accidents, bringing many stretches along the highway to a standstill.
Meanwhile, the Kuala Lumpur-Karak Highway and East Coast Expressway saw smooth traffic in both directions.
PLUS, which operates the North-South Expressway, tweeted that it had banned heavy vehicles carrying goods on the highway today and tomorrow to reduce the traffic woes.
They have also come out with a suggested time schedule for travels from various states to help in the expected traffic crawl over the weekend.
