Puduraya bus terminal to be closed 4 months from March 19

KUALA LUMPUR: The Puduraya bus terminal will be closed for four months from March 19.

UDA Holdings Bhd managing director Datuk Jaafar Abu Hassan said the closure was to allow for works that would upgrade the terminal and provide more comfort to travellers.

"The upgrading is a drastic step taken by UDA to confront the matters of travel discomfort, lack of amenities and traffic congestion around the terminal.

"The closure also needs to be done for safety as there will be demolition works," he said at a news conference here Wednesday.

Jafaar said the upgrading would be done in three stages.

He said 22 percent of the upgrading had been done and the rest would be completed by the end of the year. - Bernama
