Emergency lane use to be activated only with police instruct
Its chief operating officer Nik Airina Nik Jaffar said PLUS had made preparations to implement the opening of emergency lanes from 11am to 11pm on Thursday to Sept 19 at only selected locations but only should the need arise.
“Police officers and PLUS personnel will be stationed at the start of every additional lane. We will also place PLUS operations staff at every 1km of the additional lane to monitor and manage traffic,” she said in a statement on Monday.
Nik Airina was responding to Road Safety Marshal Club president K. Balasupramaniam’s statement that the use of emergency lanes could be dangerous to motorists.
She added that signages reminding the use of emergency lanes would be placed at the beginning, middle and end of the lanes involved.
She said it had identified several potential “bottleneck” areas that had previously experienced congestion and traffic disruptions.
