PETALING JAYA: Heavy rain, stalled vehicles and accidents have caused massive traffic jams in Klang Valley, with road users advised to use alternate routes or delay their journey.
On Twitter, @LLMinfotraffic reported a flash flood on the Besraya Highway between KM8.7 and 9 (Sungai Besi heading towards Kampung Malaysia) causing a crawl along the highway.
@Plushotline also tweeted that the traffic situation in the city was unusually congested.
Some of the badly-affected routes were Damansara towards Dataran Prima, Jalan Duta toward Bukit Lanjan, Bukit Jalil heading towards MRR2, Puchong IOI Mall towards Kelana Jaya and Damansara Utama and Bandar Utama towards SS2.
As at 8.35 pm, Twitter users were still reporting that several roads leading out of the Kuala Lumpur city centre were still congested.
Some of the more-congested roads were those leading from Jalan Dato Abu Bakar to NKVE along the Sprint highway, LDP Sunway toll plaza heading towards the Federal Highway, Jalan Masjid heading towards Motorola and Bandar Utama to Taman Tun Dr Ismail.
Traffic from the PLUS Damansara toll plaza towards Dataran Prima is easing, while other roads are expected to clear soon.
