Heavy Vehicles Banned From KL Main Roads During Peak Hours
JPJ gives a stern reminder to errant operators and drivers

In a statement issued Thursday, 3 June 2022, the department said its observation showed that heavy vehicles have been entering the city during peak hours, thus contributing to the traffic congestion and eventually affecting the smooth traffic flow in the Klang Valley.
“Roads that are gazetted with travel restrictions of at least five kilometres from the city centre, starting from the entrance to the city centre will be marked by placing a special signboard with the time stamp prohibiting heavy vehicles from entering the city centre,” the statement read.

Roads gazetted with time restrictions in the evenings (4.30 pm to 7.30 pm) include:
