KL roads almost deserted

KL roads almost deserted



KUALA LUMPUR: The city is gradually becoming deserted as more people leave for their hometowns to celebrate Aidilfitri, which is expected to fall tomorrow.

It was a very different scene of smooth traffic compared to the snarled conditions of the past two days.

The Sungai Besi Toll, North-South Highway and Jalan Duta Toll saw fewer vehicles today.

A private sector worker, Liyana Yusoff, 26, said traffic was smoother this year compared to previous years.

"I am on the way to Melaka from Bandar Tun Razak and find it is not as bad as it was during the weekend," she said.

Another worker, Maisara Ahmad, 42, said she chose to go back to her hometown in Taiping today as there was less traffic and she was confident it would be a smoother ride on the highways.

Civil servant Mazlan Abdul Hamid, 33, said he checked the PLUS Expressways Bhd schedule last night before leaving the house earlier this afternoon.

"My number plate ends with an odd number and that means I can travel this afternoon," he said.

Meanwhile, a scan of the Pudu Sentral area saw fewer people at ticket counters.

A Kesatuan Ekspres ticket seller who identified herself as Sharifah, 41, said bus ticket sales were lower this year and there was only one bus to the north tomorrow while none were scheduled to the east coast.

It was a time of joy for student Nurul Syazwa Azmi, 23, who said last-minute travelling was fun because she would have a smooth journey and reach her family home in Sungai Petani, Kedah, just in time for the start of the festivities.
