Raya rush: Traffic still slow on several major highways


KUALA LUMPUR: Traffic flow on several major highways is reported to be still slow as of 5pm Saturday (April 13).

A Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM), spokesman said the high volume of vehicles on the North-South Expressway (NSE) and the East Coast Expressway Phase Two (LPT2) has caused congestion in several stretches.

He noted that on the LPT2, traffic is moving slowly from Bukit Besi to Paka and at the Kuala Terengganu toll plaza exit.

"On the PLUS NSE, congestion has been reported northbound from Kulai towards Sedenak, from Bukit Gambir to the Bemban Layby, from Pedas Linggi towards Port Dickson, and from Bandar Ainsdale to the Seremban R&R," he said when contacted by Bernama.

Meanwhile, the official PLUS Traffic X (formerly known as Twitter) account reported an accident at KM135.5 southbound from Pagoh to Yong Peng (U), causing a crawl.

PLUS Traffic also reported congestion after the Sungai Besi toll plaza heading towards the city centre. - Bernama
