Petaling Jaya, 27 Mac 2024:- PLUS Malaysia Berhad (PLUS) telah menambah baik laluan SmartLane bagi menampung peningkatan jumlah trafik pada cuti perayaan Hari Raya Aidilfitri yang akan datang. Di antara penambahbaikan tersebut adalah pemasangan Lampu Hijau Berkelip (Green Flashing Light) untuk menunjukkan bahawa laluan SmartLane diaktifkan dan boleh digunakan di lokasi-lokasi yang tertentu, sepertimana yang diumumkan oleh YB Menteri Kerja Raya baru-baru ini. Selain itu, PLUS turut menambah papan tanda peringatan pembukaan SmartLane di lokasi SmartLane yang telah dikenal pasti. 

“Penambahbaikan ini bertujuan untuk memudahkan pengguna lebuh raya menggunakan SmartLane yang diaktifkan untuk menguruskan kesesakan dan menambah kapasiti lorong di lokasi-lokasi kritikal sepanjang lebuh raya,” kata Pengarah Urusan PLUS, Datuk Nik Airina Nik Jaffar pada taklimat kepada media bersama Lembaga Lebuhraya Malaysia (LLM), Polis Diraja Malaysia (PDRM) dan Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan (JPJ) berkenaan persediaan PLUS menguruskan peningkatan jumlah kenderaan di Lebuhraya PLUS sempena musim perayaan Aidilfitri di Persada PLUS hari ini. 

Menurutnya, PLUS akan memberi tumpuan khusus kepada pengurusan kesesakan, pengagihan trafik dan keselesaan pengguna bagi membantu orang ramai menikmati perjalanan yang lebih lancar dan selesa pada musim perayaan Aidilfitri yang akan datang. Bagi menguruskan kesesakan, PLUS akan menambah laluan SmartLane kepada 18 lokasi tumpuan trafik di lebuh raya bagi membantu melancarkan pergerakan trafik.  

Ketika SmartLane diaktifkan, lorong paling kiri yang sedia ada dibuka sebagai laluan tambahan untuk mengoptimumkan penggunaan semua laluan dan meningkatkan kapasiti lorong bagi mengurangkan kesesakan trafik di laluan kritikal lebuh raya. 

Berdasarkan kajian yang dijalankan oleh Institut Penyelidikan Keselamatan Jalan Raya Malaysia (MIROS) di enam lebuh raya di Malaysia sempena musim perayaan yang lalu, lebih 70 peratus pengguna jalan raya yang menggunakan laluan SmartLane bersetuju bahawa inisiatif SmartLane telah membantu dalam mengurangkan kesesakan lalu lintas. 

Dalam masa yang sama, inistiatif tersebut boleh menyumbangkan kepada aliran trafik yang lebih lancar dan penjimatan masa. Namun, penambahbaikan laluan tersebut perlu ditekankan untuk meningkatkan kesedaran menerusi notifikasi kepada pengguna jalan raya. 

“SmartLane hanya boleh digunakan oleh kenderaan persendirian/penumpang untuk sementara waktu sebelum diarahkan untuk masuk semula ke laluan utama bagi meneruskan perjalanan mereka. Walau bagaimanapun, pengguna lebuh raya dilarang sama sekali untuk memandu di lorong kecemasan di lokasi-lokasi lain di mana tiada laluan SmartLane diaktifkan,” jelas Datuk Nik Airina. 

Pengagihan Trafik melalui jadual perjalanan digital MyPLUS-TTA 

Untuk mengagihkan trafik, PLUS akan turut menyediakan jadual perjalanan digital iaitu MyPLUS-TTA. 

MyPLUS-TTA yang telah dilancarkan oleh Menteri Kerja Raya pada perayaan yang lalu merupakan pendekatan digital PLUS untuk membantu orang ramai merancang dan memilih masa perjalanan yang paling sesuai untuk musim-musim perayaan. Inisiatif MyPLUS-TTA ini adalah komitmen dan sebahagian usaha PLUS untuk meningkatkan keselesaan para pengguna lebuh raya semasa musim-musim perayaan menerusi pengagihan trafik berdasarkan data dan pola perjalanan pada musim-musim perayaan yang lalu. 

Untuk mendapatkan jadual digital MyPLUS-TTA, pengguna lebuh raya boleh memuat turun Aplikasi PLUS dan mendaftarkan perjalanan mereka sekarang untuk memilih waktu perjalanan yang paling optimum pada perjalanan musim perayaan Aidilfitri di antara 4 April hingga 15 April yang akan datang. 

Keselesaan Pengguna 

Bagi membantu melancarkan lagi pergerakan orang ramai untuk pulang ke kampung halaman, PLUS akan mengambil beberapa langkah merangkumi persediaan operasi di plaza tol, lebuh raya dan kawasan rehat untuk pergerakan perjalanan yang lebih lancar pada waktu puncak sepanjang tempoh perayaan Aidilfitri kali ini.  

Dalam masa yang sama, PLUS turut menasihatkan orang ramai supaya menggunakan Aplikasi PLUS, Aplikasi Waze atau Google Maps untuk merancang perjalanan dan mendapatkan pelan perjalanan dengan lebih baik.

Petaling Jaya, 9 March 2024:- Based on data and traffic movement patterns from last year’s Ramadan, PLUS Malaysia Berhad (PLUS) forecasts that the peak hours for the journey home will be between 5 pm and 6 pm, where the number of vehicles on highways will be at its highest level on each working day during this Ramadan. 

Therefore, PLUS advises all highway users to plan their journeys and avoid traveling during peak hours for their comfort.

To further facilitate the movement of highway users returning home for iftar, PLUS will take several steps including operational preparations at toll plazas, highways, and rest areas for smoother travel during peak hours throughout Ramadan. These measures include:

• All entry and exit lanes at toll plazas will operate fully.

• Providing mobile toll payment readers and support equipment at toll plazas.

• Completing all maintenance work at toll plazas before 4:30 pm to avoid any disruptions.

• Increasing the number of frontline personnel at toll plazas.

• Assigning technical support teams at toll plazas to be on standby. 

Additionally, PLUS will ensure that all public facilities at rest and service areas are fully operational to accommodate the high demand during peak hours for iftar throughout Ramadan.

At the same time, PLUS also reminds highway users to ensure that their Touch 'n Go cards or e-Wallets (for those using RFID) have sufficient balance before starting their journey to avoid any unwanted incidents and facilitate the flow of other users through toll plazas on their way home for iftar. 

Highway users are also encouraged to download the PLUS App to ease the journey planning and obtain the latest traffic information on highways. Alternatively, users can follow real-time traffic reports through @PLUSTrafik on X App, PUTRI Chatbot, national radio channels, and electronic signboards (VMS) at selected locations. Highway users can also contact the PLUSLine at 1800-88-0000 for assistance in case of emergencies. 

Everyone is also advised to use Waze or Google Maps applications for better travel planning. 

PLUS wishes all Muslims an auspicious Ramadan. May this Ramadan be more filled with prosperity and blessed by Allah SWT.
