PETALING JAYA: An upgrade project to add a fourth lane to 63.3km of the North-South Expressway is 62% complete, with completion expected by the end of the year.
According to PLUS Malaysia Bhd senior general manager for special projects and planning Suhaina Baharudin, the project was at its second phase, and lane closures would be carried out daily to complete the project on time.
“Lane closures will be carried out every night because we are at the peak of the project,” she told reporters at Persada PLUS here yesterday.
Suhaina said road closures would also be suspended in the run-up to Hari Raya (expected on July 28), though work taking place away from in-use lanes would continue during that time.
The RM1.4bil project entails five packages: Shah Alam-Sungai Buloh (16.1km), Bukit Lanjan-Jalan Duta (7km), Sungai Buloh-Rawang (13.1km), Nilai Utara-Nilai (5.2km) and Nilai-Seremban/Port Dickson (21.9km).
Upon completion, the fourth lane would increase traffic capacity on the five stretches by 33%.
Taking the Subang-Damansara stretch as an example, Suhaina said the upgraded stretch would allow the number of vehicles travelling there to increase from 170,000 to 220,000 a day.
