KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 1 -- Traffic flow along several major highways was slow-moving this afternoon as people began to return home after celebrating Aidiladha in their hometowns.
A PLUS Malaysia Berhad spokesman, when contacted, said that as of 4.30 pm, traffic was noticeably slower for the southbound journey in the Seberang Jaya area to Prai, before the south-bound Juru Toll Plaza, Bukit Tambun to Jawi, before the Menora Tunnel to Ipoh, Gopeng to Tapah and Sungkai to Slim River.
He said that northbound traffic was also reported to be slow, namely from Simpang Ampat to Hentian Pedas Linggi following an accident at kilometre 217.4.
However, traffic flow on the East Coast Expressway (LPT) 1 and LPT 2 is reported to be smooth in both directions so far.
