According to BERNAMA, PLUS chief operations officer Datuk Zakaria Ahmad Zabidi said that PLUS has released its travel time advisory (TTA) for the said period for road users to plan their trip in conjunction with the Deepavali celebrations this weekend and into next week.

“Road users can refer to the travel advisory through the website and PLUS social media platforms. The TTA for road users leaving the city for their hometowns using the North-South Expressway (NSE) is to prevent and manage congestion on the highway, rest areas and toll plazas during this festive period.”

Zakaria also advised motorists from the Klang Valley heading towards Perlis, Kedah, Penang, North Perak and Johor to enter the highway before 10am and urged those coming to the Klang Valley from these states starting October 24 to 26, to enter the Expressway before 10am.

He added that PLUS with the cooperation of the Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM) and police would activate the Public SmartLane Test (involving the emergency lane) at the Bukit Tambun-Juru Toll Plaza and Sungai Petani Selatan-Hentian Sebelah Tikam Batu toll plazas to reduce congestion.

Meanwhile, he also said that PLUS will ensure no lane closure, maintenance work or upgrading work is carried out from October 21 to 25, so as to avoid any inconvenience to road users.

He further added that 512 PLUSRonda personnel would be deployed throughout the festive season to assist road users who seek help.

 

For those who are travelling, we wish you a safe journey!
