All highway users are advised to adhere to the travel rules and signage provided when passing through all toll plazas to ensure a smooth and safe journey to the destination. In addition, highway users are also advised to plan their journey in advance by following the Travel Time Advisory Schedule provided by some of the concessionaires.

PLUS, for example, has this chart (below) which shows suggested starting times for those travelling on its North-South Expressway from today until October 29.

PLUS also reminds highway users to reload their Touch‘nGo cards with sufficient value for the entire journey. They can reload at any of the 10,000 reload centres covering ATM machines, R&Rs, petrol stations, malls, self-service kiosks and convenient stores throughout the country. However, they will not be able to reload at PLUS toll plazas from today until October 29, 2019. This is to facilitate smoother traffic flow during the upcoming Deepavali season when high traffic volumes are expected.

Touch'NGo card
Be sure you have enough balance in your tollcard as reload lanes on PLUS highways will be closed. A good idea would be to store RM20 in your MyKad for emergencies so you can enter the highway and find a R&R to reload instead of blocking other vehicles because you cannot go through. To know if your MyKad can be used for Touch’NGo payment, check the back of the card for the logo.
