KUALA LUMPUR: The concessionaire for the North-South Expressway has suggested staggered travel times for motorists travelling during the Deepavali holidays to reduce traffic congestion.
PLUS Expressways Bhd chief operating officer Nik Airina Nik Jaffar suggested that motorists follow it so that traffic flow on the NSE would be smooth.
She said that for the latest information, listeners could tune into ERA, MY FM, hitz.fm MIX fm, LifeFM, SINAR, Xfresh, THR Raaga and THR Gegar radio stations.
PLUS also issued advisories for Merdeka and Hari Raya Puasa holidays.
Nik Airina said, in a statement, that about 60% of highway users followed the recommended schedule during the Hari Raya holidays and that resulted in smooth traffic flow.
“We anticipate high traffic volume because the Deepavali celebration this year coincides with the Hari Raya month,” she added.
