KUALA LUMPUR, June 13 (Bernama) -- PLUS Malaysia Berhad (PLUS) will close all the 134 added value lanes at its toll plazas from June 22 until July 2 to allow for smooth traffic flow during the Hari Raya Aidilfitri holiday.

According to PLUS, in a statement, today the measure was aimed at reducing congestion caused by highway commuters queuing up at the value added lanes.
