1-year road closure at Jalan Sungai Besi to start Monday


DBKL had earlier said it was closing the Sungai Besi road leading to Sungai Besi or Petaling Jaya (opposite Fraser Business Park), and the Loke Yew roundabout from tomorrow.

PETALING JAYA: The road closure at Jalan Sungai Besi leading to Sungai Besi/Petaling Jaya (opposite Fraser Business Park) and the Loke Yew Roundabout, in Kuala Lumpur will start next Monday.

The road closure, which was originally scheduled to start tomorrow, is expected to last for one year, Bernama reported.

in a statement, Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) said the road closure was to allow for the widening of the road and the construction of a bridge at the Loke Yew Roundabout to be carried out.

“The DBKL administration has appointed Tetuan Pertama Makmur Sdn Bhd to carry out the construction work on the widening of Jalan Yew which started in October 2021 and is expected to be completed on Dec 31, 2025, and construction work is actively being carried out on-site,” DBKL said.

It added that it will provide road users with alternative routes during the year-long closure.

Traffic from the Kampung Pandan Roundabout to Sungai Besi/Petaling Jaya will be diverted into two parts, one through the road next to Federal Bakery and the other, the contraflow lane in the adjacent lane.

The Jalan Yew traffic route from Kampung Pandan Roundabout to Jalan Kinabalu and Jalan Kuching will be closed throughout the construction period, therefore the alternative route is through Jalan Kampung Pandan, Jalan Imbi and Jalan Hang Tuah.

Meanwhile, to enable the demolition of the ramp and the reconstruction of the bridge at the Pudu roundabout leading to Jalan Sungai Besi (next to Pudu police station), the ramp from Jalan Pudu to Jalan Yew will be closed to all traffic during the same period.

“The alternative route is through Jalan Sungai Besi, Jalan Chan Sow Lin, Jalan Satu, Jalan Dua and Jalan Tiga,” DBKL said, according to Bernama.

DBKL advised all road users to obey the signs and traffic police instructions as a guide and safety measure to avoid any confusion and inconvenience. - FMT
