Bad weather and floods worsen festive traffic crawl

Holiday-makers, who are still celebrating Christmas and the year-end school holidays, will not only have to put up with the usual festive traffic crawl on the roads but some bad weather and floods.

The weatherman has forecast that it will be wet over the next few days, which means motorists would face poor visibility and treacherous conditions.

North-South Expressway (NSE) concessionaire PLUS Berhad said about 1.5 million vehicles are expected to be on the road during the year-end holiday season.

PLUS chief operating officer Mohammad Fuad Khusairi said there would be more vehicles plying the NSE from now until Jan 1.

“Motorists should follow our Travel Time Advisory (TTA) to ensure smooth traffic flow during this period,” he said in a statement.

He advised motorists to adhere to the speed limits and take adequate rest when they return from their holidays during the rainy period.

Mohammad Fuad said motorists heading to the Klang Valley should begin their journey before 11am or after 8pm, while those using other roads should travel between 11am to 8pm.

He added that vehicles with odd number plates using the Johor Second Link Causeway were advised to ply the highways at odd hours while those with even number plates should start at even hours.
