PETALING JAYA: Traffic along many stretches of the North-South Expressway remained at a crawl at 11.20pm with a few broken down vehicles yet to be cleared, PLUS Malaysia Berhad reported on it’s official Twitter account @plustrafik.

“We have early information of a trailer that has broken down on the right lane of KM330 southbound from Tapah to Bidor. Traffic is slow,” said PLUS in a tweet at 11.20pm

This follows earlier tweets on @plustrafik, such as an alert that went out at 11.03pm, warning that “traffic is still heavy and it is still slow from Bukit Beruntung heading to South Rawang. Keep your car at a safe distance”.

Earlier on Sunday night, PLUS had tweeted at 10.58pm that traffic was still heavy and slow before the Changkat Jering turnoff heading to Bukit Berapit and at the Sungai Perak R&R heading to the tunnel and Ipoh.

It also warned that traffic was slow at 10.54pm from Simpang Pulai through Gopeng, Tapah and Bidor heading to Slim River.

PLUS  also tweeted at 10.45pm that an accident had been cleared at KM115, southbound from South Sungai Petani to Bertam.

Reports of heavy traffic had appeared on @plustrafik throughout Sunday, with warnings first appearing at 11.11am, when PLUS tweeted that the traffic flow was picking up on both ways between Seremban and Nilai.

“However it is still under control. Please plan your journey times,” PLUS added, before reporting at 11.48am that traffic was building up at the turn-off to the Ayer Keroh toll plaza, and then at 11.50am that traffic was slow from Slim River heading to Sungkai, Perak.

Meanwhile, netizens also took to Twitter to vent their frustrations, such as Ariff Suffian, who tweeted on @ariffsays at 8.20pm “thanks to the multiple jams on the North South highway, it became a 5 hour drive back from Perak. Exhausted”.

Another netizen, Kelvin Anthony added on his account, @kelvin_anthony at 7.30pm, “Bumper to bumper jam on the North South highway. Errbody heading back to KL”.
