Flyover from KL Sentral to Jln Damansara opens tomorrow
THE flyover from KL Sentral to Jalan Damansara and the Mahameru Highway will open tomorrow as announced by the Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin.
Raja Nong Chik said the flyover was part of Package 2 of the RM110mil Brickfields traffic dispersal system under the Government Stimulus Package.
“The road that was completed on schedule will only allow motorists to exit the KL Sentral area,” Nong Chik said, adding that there will be traffic wardens to guide vehicles.
The access road to the flyover is through Jalan Stesen Sentral 5 near the Quill 7 building.
Nong Chik said Package 3 which involved upgrading Jalan Tun Sambanthan was in progress.
He also said reverting Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad in Brickfields to a two-way road had been put on hold due to requests by non-governmental organisations.
“These groups voted for the change previously but now they want to put the move on hold until all work in the area is complete to avoid traffic chaos.
“Then we will assess the situation again,” Nong Chik said.
He added that Kuala Lumpur City Hall was in the final stages of planning a way to overcome congestion in Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad.
“One of the suggestions is to create a contra flow along Jalan Tun Sambanthan for buses and taxis only,” Nong Chik said.
