Travellers, if you’re driving to your holiday destination over the National Day and Hari Raya Haji long weekend, please take note!
PLUS Malaysia Berhad (PLUS) has announced the nationwide closure of all 134 reload lanes from 29th August 2017 to 4th September 2017 to allow for the smooth operations of toll plazas during the National Day and Hari Raya Haji holidays.
PLUS managing director Datuk Azman Ismail said a statement that the closure of the reload lanes was necessary to prevent traffic congestion due to cash reload transactions. “Based on our observation and study, the temporary closure of reload lanes during the previous festive season had lessened traffic congestion at toll plazas. Thus, we will continue to use the same approach during the coming and future festive seasons,” he said.
Fret not! As an alternative, you can always reload your Touch ‘n Go at automated teller machines (ATM), convenience stores, and petrol stations, among others. Just make sure that you have sufficient credit in your Touch ‘n Go card before you travel.
Previously, PLUS had closed its reload lanes during the Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Chinese New year celebrations.
