PUTRAJAYA (Bernama): Roadblocks in Putrajaya ended at midnight Thursday (Sept 9) after operating for nine months since January 13.

Putrajaya OCPD Asst Comm A. Asmadi Abdul Aziz said even though the roadblocks have been removed, the people were reminded to continue complying with the standard operating procedure (SOP) to contain the spread of Covid-19.

He said compliance operations would stepped up with additional personnel to ensure members of the public entering Putrajaya for recreation or domestic tourism adhered to the SOP.

The lifting of the roadblocks was announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob after inter-district travel in the Klang Valley was allowed when Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya moved to Phase Two of the National Recovery Plan on Friday (Sept 10).

Meanwhile, Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Fakhrudin Abdul Hamid, in a statement, said the two roadblocks removed in Petaling Jaya were at the Federal Highway and Taman Kanagapuram under the New Pantai Expressway (NPE).

However, ACP Fakhrudin said the roadblocks at four locations - the Sungai Buloh toll plaza, Kota Damansara toll plaza, Damansara toll plaza and Subang toll plaza - will remain in operation. - Bernama
