New flyover set to ease traffic congestion in Jalan Tun Razak


Motorists heading to the Kampung Pandan roundabout can now use a flyover from Jalan Tun Razak in Kuala Lumpur.

The 2.8km three-lane road starts in front of the Royal Selangor Golf Club before ending in Kampung Pandan.

During the launch on Saturday, Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Dr Shahidan Kassim said the flyover was meant to reduce congestion during peak hours.

“This flyover is also to provide access to motorists exiting from Jalan Bukit Bintang.

“It connects to MEX highway too,” he said.

Shahidan added that plans were being made to link the flyover to the Setiawangsa-Pantai Expressway that was currently under construction.

Launched on July 20, 2017, the RM492.5mil project was supposed to have been completed on July 8, 2019.

However, the project experienced several delays, some of which were due to the movement control order in 2020 enforced to curb the spread of Covid-19.

Also present at the launch were Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Seri Mahadi Che Ngah and Federal Territories Ministry secretary-general Datuk Seri Rosida Jaafar.
