A NEW road connecting Bandar Baru Bangi and Bandar Teknologi Kajang will be built to ease traffic congestion in the area.

Kajang Municipal Council (MPKj) president Mohd Sayuthi Bakar said the project involved the construction of a flyover from Persiaran Bangi through Jalan Reko and across the railway tracks to Kajang 2, Nadayu 92, Tropicana Heights and straight to Bandar Teknologi Kajang.

He said it would be completed by October 2017 at an estimated cost of RM49.3mil.

“Now, vehicles from Bandar Baru Bangi and Bandar Teknologi Kajang/Semenyih have to make a turn and drive through the tunnel in Jalan Reko.

“The construction of the new road network will connect the two areas without having to go through Kajang town.

“The traffic flow in Kajang will be reduced, especially during peak hours and the project can benefit some 50,000 residents,” he said.

Sayuthi added that the road network would also involve the construction of a new bridge in Bandar Teknologi Kajang, with an estimated cost of RM5.8mil.

“The construction work will involve the existing bridge being upgraded from single to dual carriageway with the addition of a new bridge.”

He was speaking at the contract handover ceremony for the proposed Kajang 2 flyover and signing ceremony for a proposed bridge to Bandar Teknologi Kajang.
