‘Balik Kampung’ Rush Slows Down Traffic

As many people start their journeys back to their respective hometowns to celebrate Hari Raya Aidiladha, which falls on Thursday (June 29), traffic along numerous main highways in the nation has started to slow down.

According to a PLUS traffic official, traffic on the North-South Expressway (PLUS) has started to slow down, especially at Slim River in Perak going north to Sungkai and at Bandar Cassia going south to Juru, Penang.

According to a representative for the Malaysian Highway Authority (MHA), traffic on the KL-Karak Expressway was delayed as it travelled to the East Coast from the Gombak toll plaza to Genting Sempah and from Bukit Tinggi to Lentang.

In connection with this, the Bukit Aman Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department will run Op Lancar from today (June 28) to July 2. The effort, according to a statement from the agency, is intended to ensure seamless traffic movement across the nation.

Op Lancar will keep an eye on and take action to disperse traffic on all major highways, including the North-South Highway, the Karak Highway the East Coast Highway, and roads connecting states and districts, including federal and state roads and town roads.

To maintain a smooth flow of traffic, traffic stops and congested intersections will also be strictly monitored.

Additionally, we also want to encourage drivers/riders to constantly comply with law enforcement and to drive/ride carefully, patiently, and with complete attention.
