If you are planning to travel on PLUS highways this coming Deepavali, you will want to ensure your Touch n’ Go (TnG) cards have enough credit in them. This is because 134 TnG reload lanes will be closed from October 17 to 19, 2017 in conjunction with the celebration.

In a report by Bernama, PLUS managing director Datuk Azman Ismail said the temporary shutdown was to reduce congestion at the toll plazas in view of the increased traffic volume during the period. However, motorists will still be able to reload their TnG cards at the Bukit Kayu Hitam and Bangunan Sultan Iskandar toll plazas, which will be operating as normal on those days.

“Users of PLUS’ highways are advised to ensure their cards have sufficient balance before entering the highways. They can top up their cards at 9,200 other locations including ATM machines, 24-hour convenience outlets and also at petrol stations at all PLUS’ R&R facilities,” Azman said in a statement, who added that the move will be applied in the future to other major holiday periods.
