PETALING JAYA - Heavy rain, stalled vehicles and accidents caused massive traffic jams in the Klang Valley following a heavy afternoon downpour yesterday.
On Twitter, @LLMinfotraffic reported a flash flood on the Besraya Highway between KM8.7 and 9 (Sungai Besi heading towards Kampung Malaysia), causing a crawl along the highway.
@Plushotline also tweeted that the traffic in Kuala Lumpur was unusually congested.
Some of the badly-affected routes on NKVE included the stretch from Damansara towards Dataran Prima and from Jalan Duta towards Bukit Lanjan.
Jams were also reported on the Middle Ring Road II from Bukit Jalil, and on Lebuhraya Damansara Puchong (LDP), with crawls from Puchong IOI Mall towards Kelana Jaya and from Damansara Utama and Bandar Utama towards SS2.
As of 8.35pm, Twitter users were still reporting that several roads leading out of Kuala Lumpur city centre were still congested.
Some of the more congested roads were those leading from Petaling Jaya's Jalan Dato Abu Bakar towards NKVE, along the Sprint highway, from the LDP Sunway toll plaza heading towards the Federal Highway, Jalan Masjid heading towards Motorola, and from Bandar Utama towards Taman Tun Dr Ismail.
