“I have agreed to the meeting. I will announced the date and time,” he told reporters.

At the same time, Mohamed Azmin said that construction of a highway is not the sole solution to traffic problems.

“The authorities such as the Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM) needs to be educated about this, not necessary a highway.

“We should develop infrastructure that can move a lot of people like the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), the Light Rail Transit (LRT) and the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT),” he said.
