Separately, the Malaysian Highway Authority has ordered all road maintenance works on major highways to be halted from 30 May to 13 June to make way for heavy traffic, except for emergencies. The Road Transport Department is also banning heavy vehicles from using major highways between 1-3 June and 8-9 June for the same reason in anticipation of Raya traffic.
