Highway Concession Companies Instructed to Prepare for Ramadan

All highway concession companies are instructed to prepare for the month of Ramadan, especially during peak hours to ensure comfortable, safe and smooth travel for users.

The Malaysian Highways Authority (LLM) informed that it expects an increase in the amount of traffic on tolled highways when going home or going to work during Ramadan which is expected to start this Tuesday.

“Among the initiatives that need to be implemented is re-coordinating the location and time of lane closures for maintenance works in line with the time of return or departure from work, whether in the government or private sector which will change compared to normal working hours.

“In addition, rescheduling the activation time of the tidal route or smartlane in accordance with the change in working hours and ensuring that all facilities are provided in rest and treatment areas, side stops and toll plazas in good condition.

“This includes aspects of water supply and cleanliness,” according to LLM while also asking the parties involved to identify focal locations and provide temporary additional facilities to deal with the increase in the number of users.

In addition, they hope that cooperation with the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) can be increased to help smooth traffic movement, especially at critical locations such as traffic lights after highway exits to avoid traffic overflowing onto the highway’s main route.

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
