Pedestrian bridge 20 years in the making opens

Weather proof: The new pedestrian link bridge takes you over a river and busy roads from the Gardens Mall to LRT and KTM Komuter stations.

KUALA LUMPUR: A 250m-long pedestrian linkway that has been 20 years in the making has finally opened for service.

The bridge spanning the Klang River and the Bangsar-Petaling Jaya bypass, allows commuters to walk comfortably between the Abdullah Hukum LRT and KTM Komuter stations, all the way to the shopping malls and offices in Mid Valley, while allowing full access to KL Eco City.

Mid Valley’s Megamall opened in 1999, the same year the Kelana Jaya LRT started operations. But apparently, pedestrian connectivity was the last thing on the minds of city and transport planners.
