KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 8 ― Traffic volumes on several major highways have increased this morning following the extended holiday period leading up to the Chinese New Year celebration this Saturday.
A spokesperson for PLUS Malaysia Berhad said that as of 9am, traffic has increased at Permatang Pauh-Perai, Slim River-Sungkai, Setia Alam-Shah Alam and Bandar Gamuda Cove-Bandar Saujana Putra.
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM) reported slow-moving traffic at Ayer Keroh-Jasin, while traffic flow on the East Coast Expressway (LPT) 1, LPT 2, Sungai Besi Toll Plaza and Skudai Toll Plaza remains smooth in both directions.
