— Traffic has been reported to be moving slowly at several main highways this evening, as people begin to return home after the Christmas holiday weekend.
A PLUS Malaysia Berhad spokesman said that this was the situation as of 5.12 pm for southbound traffic from Sungai Petani (North) to Sungai Petani (South), Permatang Pauh to Perai, Juru to Bukit Tambun, Bukit Gantang to Bukit Berapit and the Menora Tunnel heading to Ipoh.

“A car accident at 241.7 KM (northbound) (Pedas Linggi to Senawang) has caused a 24-kilometre traffic jam from the Ayer Keroh overhead bridge restaurant to the accident site,” the spokesman said.
Meanwhile, the Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM) said traffic in the east coast areas was slow moving from before entering the Kuala Terengganu toll plaza due to rain and bad weather.
