Increased traffic flow on North South Expressway on Christmas Eve evening

KUALA LUMPUR: A traffic crawl stretching over 25km was reported from Nilai to Pedas as traffic flow on the North South Expressway from both directions increased as of 6pm Thursday.

A Plus Expressway Sdn Bhd Traffic Control Centre spokesman said the number of vehicles had increased on the Seremban route heading to Senawang and Ayer Keroh to Jasin.

The spokesman said the North-bound traffic flow was slow from Pendang to Alor Setar following an accident involving two vehicles at Km51 at 3pm.

"The vehicles have been moved to the road shoulder but traffic was still moving slowly," he said. Slow traffic was also reported from Jelapang to the Menora Tunnel, Sungai Perak to Bukit Gantang, Bukit Lanjan to Jalan Duta, Sungai Buaya to Rawang, Bukit Beruntung to Tanjung Malim, Slim River to Sungkai and Tapah to Gopeng.

A Malaysia Highway Authority (LLM) spokesman said traffic flow on the East Coast Highway from Gombak to Genting Sempah, near the Gombak Toll Plaza was also reported to be slow.

Slow and controlled traffic conditions were also reported from Lentang to Bentong and the Karak Toll Plaza heading to Lanchang.

The MRR2 is also backed up in both directions at Pandan Perdana, possibly due to an accident.

Traffic around the city however seems clear, except for roads around major shopping malls in areas around KLCC and Bukit Bintang.
