PETALING JAYA: The stretch of highway near the Senawang toll that was undergoing cleanup work after an acid spill has been reopened.
PLUS announced that the Senawang and Pedas Linggi stretch at the North-South Expressway will be reopened in stages, beginning 1.10pm Saturday.
“Motorists travelling north and south can now use the route as usual,” PLUS said in a statement.
“PLUS thanks highway users for their attention and cooperation, and apologises for the inconvenience caused during the closure of the route,” it added.

An accident involving a tanker lorry carrying 25,000 litres of acid chemicals caused the closure near the Senawang toll earlier Saturday.
According to the Fire and Rescue Department, the tanker lorry collided with a car at KM251.6 of the PLUS highway near the entrance of the Senawang toll.
In the 3.22am incident, the tanker lorry driver in his 30s was killed while two female victims travelling in the car suffered serious injuries.
The women, both in their 30s, were rescued from the wreckage and sent to the nearest hospital for treatment.
