PUTRAJAYA, Dec 29 (Bernama) -- Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB), together with the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM), has introduced towing zones alongside roads to and from the terminal buildings at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), including the terminal curbside area.
In a statement today, KLIA head of operations, Mohd Arif Jaafar said such a measure was necessary to ensure vehicles would not obstruct the roads and create traffic congestion.
"It is also to ensure road safety as vehicles parked on the road shoulder present a traffic hazard to passing motorists," he said.
He said KLIA had ample parking spaces with more than 11,000 parking lots available at both terminals, with a 15-minute free pass through.
"There are a further 5,500 parking lots available at the Long Term Car Park (LTCP) that is just a short 10-minute ride to the terminals on the free shuttle service provided by Malaysia Airports. The shuttle service runs every 10 minutes.
"On top of that, we have even provided a waiting area with additional 400 parking lots beside the LTCP. This waiting area is also free of charge," he added.
Arif urged the public to be more mindful of their safety and also more considerate in not contributing to traffic congestion.
Motorists who commit these traffic offences would have to pay a fine of RM300, he said.
