SUNGAI SIPUT: All construction work along the North-South Expressway (NSE) and East Coast Highway will be halted during the Hari Raya period to ensure smooth traffic flow.
Works Minister Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said this was in view of the increased traffic volume during the festive season.
The stoppage of works would be three days before and after Hari Raya.
“The third lane on the NSE between Seremban and Air Keroh and between Rawang and Tanjung Malim will also be opened to traffic,” he said yesterday after presenting Hari Raya goodies to Sungai Siput villagers.
“I also appeal to motorists to obey traffic rules at all times,” he added.
Samy Vellu, who is also Sungai Siput MP, said a special patrol team had been set up by the Public Works Department to monitor accidents and damaged roads.
The department, he added, had also instructed contractors to stop construction on all federal roads during the festive season.
