Travellers should plan their trip beforehand

BSI took the opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience the upgrading works may cause. In anticipation of the works, they advised travellers to plan their trips accordingly.

Travellers should also avoid cutting the queue during this period and give way to those in need.

If you plan on travelling to Malaysia via bus during the upcoming school holiday, be sure to factor in additional time in case of delays.
