Deepavali: Traffic flow slow on major highways

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 21 — Traffic flow on major highways started to slow down following an increase in the volume of vehicles on the road due to the Deepavali holidays and long weekend.

The Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM) said on its Twitter account the traffic flow was reported to be slow on the Kuala Lumpur – Karak Expressway from the east (Kuantan) just before the Gombak Toll Plaza and from Lentang to the Bentong Toll Plaza.

Traffic flow was reported to be slow west-bound from Gombak Rest Area to Gombak Toll Plaza and Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2), as well as south-bound from Sungai Besi Toll Plaza to Bangi, Seremban to Senawang, Senawang to Pedas Linggi and Kempas to Pasir Gudang.

It said traffic was also moving slowly northbound from Pasir Gudang to Dato’ Onn, Senai to Kulai, Pedas Linggi to Port Dickson and after Sungai Besi Toll Plaza heading to the capital city.

LLM added the traffic was moving slowly from Juru Autocity to Juru Toll Plaza, Bukit Tambun to Jawi and Menora Tunnel to Ipoh Utara as well as from Sungai Buloh Rest and Service Area to Sungai Buloh Hospital and just before Rawang Selatan Toll Plaza.

“Traffic volume is expected to build up towards midnight,” an LLM spokesman told Bernama.
