PETALING JAYA: Traffic was slow on the North–South Expressway (NSE) heading north as Klang Valley residents head out to their hometowns and holiday destinations to take advantage of the festive weekend.

The PLUS traffic monitoring centre said traffic had been slow since Friday afternoon and the situation continued yesterday.

“North-bound traffic is heavy from Hospital Sungai Buloh to Sungai Buaya, Slim River to Sungkai, and Sungkai to Tapah,” said a spokesman when contacted yesterday afternoon.

Traffic towards Kuala Lumpur is expected to be heavy on Monday as people return at the end of the long weekend.

Motorists can get the latest traffic reports on PLUS highways by contacting the toll-free line at 1800-88-0000 or Twitter (www.twitter.com/plustrafik account).

According to Sin Chew Daily, the long weekend has also caused congestion at the Woodlands and Tuas checkpoints in Singapore as holiday makers headed to Malaysia.

Quoting Singapore’s Lianhe Zaobao, it reported that motorists travelling from the Woodlands checkpoint were stuck for four hours yesterday morning.

Meanwhile, Johor Immigration Department director Datuk Rohaizi Bahari said it was normal to see a surge in traffic volumes at the Causeway and the Second Link during the year end.

All 38 and 39 car lanes at the Causeway for exiting and entering the country will be open during peak hours, he said.
