KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 5 – Traffic flow was smooth on all highways and roads leading out of the city and into the city as at 5pm today as many people had already returned to their villages and hometowns for the long Aidiladha weekend. A spokesman of the traffic control centre of PLUS Expressways said no congestion was reported along the North-South Expressway but traffic was slow from Seremban to Nilai, Negeri Sembilan.
“There was however, congestion at the Johor Causeway, heading to Singapore,” the spokesman told Bernama when contacted. PLUS Expressways also reported over its Twitter account that traffic was also flowing smoothly on the North-South Expressway Central Link (Elite), Malaysia-Singapore Second Link (Linkedua), Butterworth-Kulim Expressway (BKE), Seremban-Port Dickson Highway (SPDH) and the two Penang bridges.
Meanwhile, a spokesman of the Malaysian Highway Authority (MHA) said traffic flow was heavy around the Gombak Toll Plaza, heading into the city at 5pm. “At 5.20pm there was an accident at Km198 (Taiping to Bukit Merah, Perak) causing obstruction at fast lane but the situation remained under control,” said the spokesman.
