KUALA LUMPUR – Traffic on the North-South Expressway (PLUS) was reported to be increasingly congested, as at 4pm today.
A PLUS spokesman said the northbound traffic was reported to be congested from Jelapang to Menora Tunnel, Kuala Kangsar to Bukit Berapit and Perai to Seberang Jaya.
“The northbound Ladang Bikam rest and service area (RSA) needs to be temporarily closed to reduce the number of vehicles and will be reopened when the rest area is not too congested,” he said when contacted by Bernama.
As for southbound traffic, the flow was slow from Nilai to Seremban and Pedas/Linggi to Simpang Ampat.
“At KM160.7 from Bukit Gambir to Tangkak, an overturned lorry caused congestion of up to six kilometers long,” he said.
Meanwhile, a Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM) spokesman reported slow traffic from Gombak to Genting Sempah near the Gombak toll plaza, from Lentang to Bentong and Karak toll plaza to Lancang.
