PETALING JAYA: On the first day of Hari Raya Aidilfitri, traffic in the Klang Valley appears to be smooth albeit with minor congestion at popular locations owing to roadblocks due to the ongoing movement control order.
The Maju Expressway (MEX) tweeted on Thursday (May 13) that as of noon, traffic appeared smooth along the highway.
On the other hand, as of 12.30pm, Astro Radio Traffic said there was a 10-minute delay at the Sungai Besi Highway near Taman Pudu Ulu and at the DUKE expressway near the Jalan Duta toll booth.
Astro Radio Traffic also said that as of 11.30am, there was a 19 minute-delay at the NPE Highway near Jalan Templer, where roadblocks were set up to enforce the MCO.
"Avoid E10 Lebuhraya NPE. You will be stuck 19 minutes longer than usual," tweeted Astro Radio Traffic on Thursday (May 13).
At the same time, Astro Radio Traffic also advised Malaysians to stay clear of Jalan Cheras near Jalan Kuari in Kuala Lumpur due to minor traffic congestion since 11.30am.
"It will take 10 minutes longer than usual," it added.
There also appears to be a minor traffic congestion at the Federal Highway near the Universiti Malaya Medical Centre as of 11.30am.
"It is causing an extra 11-minute delay," said Astro Radio Traffic.
The Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM) also tweeted that traffic in the Klang Valley has generally been smooth since morning.
"Maintain your discipline in abiding by Hari Raya Aidilfitri SOPs to curb the spread of Covid-19," it added in a tweet Thursday.
On Monday (May 10), it was reported that there was major congestion along the Federal Highway after roadblocks were enforced both ways near the Kota Darul Ehsan arch marking the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor border, which saw four lanes being reduced to just two.
Motorists had reported on Monday that the traffic congestion was so severe that many were stuck on the road for hours.
Under the ongoing MCO, all interstate and interdistrict travel without police approval is not permitted.
However, all economic sectors are allowed to operate as usual.
