Long wait: Busy traffic at Jalan Raja Laut, Kuala Lumpur. The World Bank’s 2015 Malaysia’s Economic Monitor report states that jams in Greater Kuala Lumpur may be getting bigger.

PETALING JAYA: Every year, Joshua Chong, 30, spends more than three weeks sitting behind a steering wheel in traffic jams to and from work.

Five days a week, he drives some 30km from his house in Shah Alam to Kuala Lumpur. If he’s lucky, it takes him an hour to reach his office. If he’s not, he sits an extra 30 minutes in his car each way every day.
