MRT CORP announces partial road and lane closures for MRT project


KUALA LUMPUR, June 19 – Mass Rapid Transit Corporation Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp) today announced a partial night road closure on Jalan Bukit Bintang from 10pm June 23 to 6am June 24 to facilitate road works for the MRT project.

The 100-metre closure is in front of the former Porsche showroom, just before the LTAT building, MRT Corp said in a statement here.

mrt31It said there will also be two extensions of partial lane closures on the Cheras-Kajang (Grand Saga) Highway, near Exit 702 of the Hulu Langat interchange (Kajang-bound).


A partial lane closure of the slip road which was previously implemented from June 9 to June 14, is now extended to July 6, while a partial closure of the right-most lane of the highway slip road which was previously implemented from June 14 to 22, is now extended to July 6.

“The temporary closures are necessary to facilitate preparation works for the construction of MRT piers. The closures involve a comprehensive traffic management plan that has been studied by Cheras-Kajang (Grand Saga) Highway and Lembaga Lebuhraya Malaysia (LLM) so that measures can be taken to minimise disruption to traffic,” it said.

Meanwhile, the left-most lane of the SPRINT Highway (KL-bound) will undergo a 24-hour trial closure for a period of one week from June 24 to 30 to allow MRT Corp and its contractors to study the impact of the closure on the traffic flow at the SPRINT Highway (KL-Bound).

“If the trial closure shows minimal adverse impact towards traffic, a permanent road closure will take place for a period of five months,” it said.

It said safety barriers, hoardings and traffic cones will be installed at the work sites to ensure road users and pedestrian are well-informed of on-going works.

In addition, a 24-hour MRT Ronda will be patrolling along the routes to attend to any emergencies.

The Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line will comprise 31 stations, and serve 1.2 million people along the route.
