R&R along all expressways to close for four days from tomorrow – Ismail Sabri


THE Rest and Recreation (R&R) areas on all expressways, including the eateries and surau, are closed for public use for four days beginning tomorrow.

Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob (picture) said only the toilets at the R&R areas are allowed for use.

“Therefore, those travelling on long distance are advised to bring their own food as the food stalls are closed and the authorities will also be at all the R&R to ensure compliance with the standard operating procedure (SOP) of the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO),” he told the daily media conference here today.

For those travelling long distance, he said, they are allowed to stop in the R&R area, but to remain in their vehicles, adding that the fuel stations along the expressway would open from 6 am to midnight.

Prior to this, the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) has released a four-day interstate movement schedule for those who have applied to return home after being stranded at various locations following the enforcement of the Movement Control Order (MCO) last March 18.
