PLUS: Critical services continue during MCO

KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 14): Critical services such as frontline patrolling units, the PLUSRonda, will be traversing the North-South Expressway on 24-hour loops to ensure the safety of its customers and to assist them during the Movement Control Order (MCO) period from Jan 13 to 26, says highway concessionaire PLUS Malaysia Bhd.

In a statement, PLUS managing director Datuk Azman Ismail said all premises at rest and service areas (R&Rs) and lay-bys which are located under MCO states (Penang, Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, Melaka and Johor) are still open from 6am to 8pm, but limited to take-away food and beverage services only as the dining areas at its food courts at those R&Rs are closed to deter the convergence of crowds.

“The operating hours for R&Rs and lay-bys at CMCO states (Perak, Negeri Sembilan, Kedah and Terengganu), meanwhile, will be from 6am to 12am and dine-in is allowed with strict physical distancing and standard operating procedures,” he added.

In addition, petrol stations along PLUS operated-highways are still open and available 24 hours a day to customers.

“PLUS also opens all suraus at its R&Rs, lay-bys and toll plaza lay-bys,” said Azman.

The company is also assisting the police in setting up roadblocks at major toll plazas at MCO-affected states as inter-district travel is currently restricted to curb the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

“We also urge highway customers who require to travel on urgent matters to plan their journey properly and ensure that their Touch 'n Go cards and e-wallets are sufficiently reloaded to minimise disruptions and need for physical interactions at the toll plazas,” added Azman.
