Kajang-Seremban Highway (LEKAS) users, take note. The E21 expressway will be temporarily closed to all motorists from 5 pm on August 18 until 4 am on August 19 for the RHB Shimano Highway Ride @ Lekas 2018 event, as reported by Bernama.

According to LEKAS COO Wan Salwani Wan Yusoff, a total of 19 intersections from Kajang Selatan up to Paroi will be closed to traffic for the annual cycling event, which is expected to draw more than 4,000 participants this year. The 105 km-long race event will start and end at the Kajang Selatan toll plaza.

The concessionaire advised motorists to use alternative routes – namely Federal Route 1 or the North-South Expressway – for travel during the period. It was previously reported that the 11 hour closure of the highway for the event is expected to see a loss of approximately 55,000 vehicles in traffic volume.
