The main roads leading to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and KLIA2 have been closed due to floods.

Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB), in its tweet today, said KLIA and KLIA2 could still be reached via the Elite Highway, exiting at the KLIA toll.

“(The) main federal roads to KLIA from Putrajaya/Cyberjaya/ Dengkil/Banting and Nilai have been closed due to flood,” MAHB said.

“For those coming from within the airport vicinity, you can access the Elite Highway via Serenia City, or use Jalan Pekeliling near Sepang International Circuit (SIC)/Staff Quarters KLIA,” it said.

MAHB said flight operations and public transportation services at KLIA are operating as normal.

Yesterday, five routes in the Sepang district had to be closed temporarily to all vehicles, including Jalan Labu to Taman Dataran Abadi, Jalan Kota Warisan to Bandar Baru Salak Tinggi and Jalan Bukit Changgang to Bandar Baru Salak Tinggi.

A check by Bernama today showed that the Jalan Labohan Dagang-Nilai route near Kota Warisan was still closed as of 1pm today due to floods.

Floods struck the Klang Valley yesterday and did not seem to abate today, causing thousands of residents to be evacuated and road users stranded due to road closures.

Floods have also been reported in Pahang, Malacca, Negri Sembilan, Terengganu and Kelantan.
