PLUS to close top-up lanes for Touch ‘n Go for a week

Yusuf Abdul Aziz

KUALA LUMPUR: All top-up lanes for PLUSMiles and Touch ‘n Go cards along the North-South Expressway will be closed for a week during Aidilfitri celebrations, beginning tomorrow.

Projek Lebuhraya Utara Selatan (PLUS) Malaysia Berhad Central Region Manager Yusuf Abdul Aziz said this was one of the measures taken to avoid traffic congestion at its toll plazas.

“However, our customer service centres at several toll plazas will be operating as early as 7am until 10pm daily for the (highway) users to top up (their cards).

“We also advise users to top up their cards before they embark on their journey.

“This can be done at a number of places, including petrol stations and ATMs,” he said when contacted by Bernama here today.

Due to the increase of 1.6 million vehicles anticipated along the PLUS expressway during this festive season, Yusuf said several areas would experience unusual traffic congestion, such as between Slim River and Kuala Kangsar in the north and between Pedas Linggi and Malacca in the south.

However, users are reminded not to abuse the emergency lane or be prepared to face stern action by the authorities, he said, adding that they can contact PLUSline at 1-800-88-0000 to obtain traffic information, PLUSRonda assistance and other information.
