All 134 Touch ‘n Go reload booths at PLUS toll plazas will be closed during the Hari Raya holidays from June 22 to July 2 to ease traffic flow, according to The Sun. A PLUS Malaysia spokesperson said that the move was aimed at reducing potential congestion caused by motorists queuing up at the reload lanes, which would inconvenience other motorists who are not topping up.

He added that motorists are advised to reload their Touch ‘n Go or PLUSMiles cards to ensure there is sufficient balance when travelling. However, they can still reload their cards at customer service centres at selected toll plazas – these will be open as usual from 7am to 10pm, including weekends and public holidays.

“Additionally, the public can opt to top up their cards at 9,200 other locations nationwide, including ATMs, 24-hour convenience stores and petrol stations, including those operating at R&R areas along the highway,” he said, adding that the highway concessionaire expects traffic flow on the North-South Expressway to increase by 21% compared to normal days, as most people will be driving to their hometowns during Raya.
