A long weekend is ahead, courtesy of Labour Day on May 1 (Friday) and Wesak Day on May 4 (Monday) – but we’re sure you already knew that! For the benefit of those intending to take to the roads during this holiday period, PLUS has released its Travel Time Advisory (TTA).

Between April 30 and May 2, motorists from the Klang Valley heading to Perlis and Kedah (Kangar, Alor Setar) and Johor Selatan (Johor Bahru, Kota Tinggi) are advised to enter the North-South Highway between 6 am and 8 am. The same is advised to those going the other way (from those locations to the Klang Valley) from May 3-5.

If you’re travelling from the Klang Valley to Penang (Kepala Batas, Butterworth, Georgetown and Bayan Lepas) or Johor Utara (Batu Pahat, Segamat and Muar) this holiday period, PLUS recommends entering the highway between 8 am and 11 am.

Those bound for Perak Utara (Taiping, Kuala Kangsar and Gerik) and Melaka (Jasin, Melaka City) can start their journey between 11 am and 2 pm, while those leaving the Klang Valley to Perak Tengah (Ipoh) and Melaka (Alor Gajah) are advised to start between 2 pm and 6 pm.
