Jln Sungai Besi to be closed in stages for a year from Oct 2


THE one-year closure of Kuala Lumpur's Jalan Sungai Besi leading to Sungai Besi/Petaling Jaya (opposite Fraser Business Park) and the Loke Yew Roundabout to all traffic in stages from Saturday (Sept 30) has been postponed to Monday (Oct 2).

The closure will be in effect until Oct 1 next year.

Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) said in a statement on Friday (Sept 29) that the road closure is to allow widening works, renovation and construction of a bridge at the Loke Yew Roundabout.

"DBKL 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,” the statement read.

Alternate routes have been identified for road users during the 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 adjacent contra flow lane.

The Jalan Yew route from Kampung Pandan Roundabout to Jalan Kinabalu and Jalan Kuching will be closed during the construction period, with the alternative route passing 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 Pudu Roundabout leading to Jalan Sungai Besi (next to the Pudu police station), the ramp from Jalan Pudu to Jalan Yew will be closed to all traffic during the same period.
