“To facilitate the nomination process, several roads, namely Jalan Serindit, the slip road to the SPS district police headquarters and the slip road to the SPS Public Works Department in the Jawi Multipurpose Hall area will be closed.

“The public is advised to take note of the road closure, plan their journeys as best as possible and use alternative routes to avoid getting caught in congestion,“ he said in a statement today.

He also advised the public going to the nomination location not to park their vehicles in prohibited areas such as residential areas, as it can obstruct traffic and cause congestion.
