PETALING JAYA: Heavy rains approaching peak-hour traffic has left many roads in the Klang Valley congested.

According to Star Radio Traffic's (@mytraffic) official Twitter account, roads are backed up on the Federal Highway from PJ HIlton and Subang Jaya to the LDP interchange and from the arch on the Federal Highway to Midvalley.

On the New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE), traffic is at a slow from Damansara to Bukit Lanjan and Dataran Prima.

Klang Valley residents should also expect delays along both directions of Jalan Tun Perak near the Masjid Jamek LRT station and along Jalan Cheras from Taman Connaught to the Billion roundabout.

Traffic is also predicted to build up along Jalan Syed Putra from the Kuen Cheng School to Midvalley.

On the NKVE, a stalled lorry on the left lane has been reported at KM27 from the Duta toll to Bukit Lanjan. The lorry has caused a 2km crawl and is yet to be moved.

An accident along Jalan Pahang, near McDonalds to Genting Klang is in the process of being cleared and is causing a jam from the Pahang roundabout.

On its official twitter account, KL Traffic Update reported flooding in the LDP tunnel from Damansara Utama heading towards SS2.

On the New Pantai Expressway (NPE), traffic is heavy in both directions at Bandar Sunway and from Taman Maju Jaya to the Templer interchange.

On the Kesas Highway, KL Traffic Update reported a 3-car pile up at KM42.7 from the Sunway toll to Kinrara. Although the cars have been moved to the side lane, the accident still caused a one-kilometre crawl.
