KUALA LUMPUR: North-bound traffic from Bidor to Tapah along the North-South Expressway suffered a five-hour traffic congestion following an accident involving two heavy vehicles.

A Malaysian Highway Authority (MHA) spokesman said the accident on Thursday morning, on the right lane of the route at Km334, near the Bikam farm, involved a vegetable-laden trailer and a lorry.

The accident at 4.30am caused the trailer to skid across the road, he said when contacted.

He said the work to remove the trailer was completed at 8.30am and it took another hour for the traffic to clear up because of the number of cars on the road due to the Hari Raya balik kampung rush.

“The traffic is also moving slowly towards Nilai and Seremban. The situation along the Kuala Lumpur-Karak Highway at the Bentong Barat intersection is under control,” he said.
