PETALING JAYA: Traffic at the Federal Highway has been severely congested since Saturday (May 8) morning after roadblocks were set up by the police to enforce the ongoing movement control order.

Traffic heading towards KL was at a crawl from Petaling Jaya, with police setting up roadblocks at the arch marking the Selangor-KL border.

The four lanes on the Federal Highway was reduced to just two lanes.

Malaysians took to social media to comment on the heavy traffic, with many concerned how traffic would be on Monday morning when work resumes after the weekend.

"Does this mean we have to get out at 6am if we start work at 9am on Monday?" questioned Azeerah Badrul on Twitter.

Alep Hazwan, in a tweet, advised Malaysians who have vaccination appointments to leave the house early.

Priscilla Patrick, in a tweet, advised Malaysians to have the needed documentation when travelling in MCO areas.

"Please make sure you have valid documentation and police letters approving your travel plans. Failing to do so, you will be issued a fine," she said.

Six districts in Selangor – Petaling, Gombak, Hulu Langat, Klang, Sepang and Kuala Langat – are under MCO from May 6-17 and Kuala Lumpur will be under MCO from May 7-20 to curb the recent surge in Covid-19 cases.

All inter-district and interstate travel is prohibited during the MCO but all economic sectors are allowed to operate as usual.
