BUKIT MERTAJAM: PLUS will activate a contra flow on its northbound Rawang-Tanjung Malim stretch from tomorrow evening until the first day of Hari Raya.
Malaysian Highway Authority (MHA) deputy director-general Ismail Md Salleh said the 43km-long stretch would be turned into five lanes from its current three.
“We anticipate a massive exodus of vehicles from Kuala Lumpur heading towards the northern states. So, we will open only a lane for south-bound vehicles from Tanjung Malim to Rawang,” he said here yesterday.
Ismail noted that the MHA traffic management centre would monitor traffic flow at all highways in the country round-the-clock.
“We have advised all highway concessionaires to keep to our emergency response time to clear vehicles involved in accidents within 30 minutes,” he said.
He advised motorists to contact MHA’s hotline at 1-800-887-752 to get traffic updates or visit its website at llmtrafik.gov.my/traffic.htm.
