PLUS has released its Travel Time Advisory (TTA) in an effort to promote smoother traffic flow during the Chinese New Year holidays and to help motorists plan their journeys.
The TTA provides recommended staggered travel times for various destinations from the Klang Valley to major cities in Kedah, Perlis, Penang, Perak, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka, Johor and Singapore.
“We expect those in the Klang Valley to start leaving for their kampungs on February 8 and 9 (Friday and Saturday),” said PLUS CEO Datuk Noorizah Haji Abdul Hamid.
“As such, based on the TTA, we advise those heading towards Kedah, Perlis, Penang and Johor to enter the North-South Expressway before 12 pm, whereas those heading towards other destinations such as Kuala Kangsar, Changkat Jering, Taiping and Malacca can enter the highway between 12 pm and 3 pm.”
On the other hand, those heading towards destinations closer to the Klang Valley are advised to enter the highway at later hours.
The highway concessionaire expects traffic on the North-South Expressway to increase by 30% to 1.4 million vehicles per day during this festive period. Motorists are advised to call the toll-free PLUSLine at 1-800-88-0000 for the latest traffic updates.
