Relocation of Klang Utara bus terminal delayed

THE relocation of the Klang Utara bus terminal, which was scheduled for Dec 1, has been delayed to Dec 13.

Klang municipal councillor Razali Hassan said the new Klang Sentral terminal in Meru could not operate yet due to some construction issues at the terminal.

Still work to be done: The new Klang Sentral bus terminal at Meru.

He said during a check at the new terminal recently with few other councillors and department heads of the Klang Municipal Council (MPK), they discovered that the developer had failed to adhere to some specifications.

”Infrastructure in the building such as signboards, cabling and wiring are not completed yet.

”We have given the developer two weeks to do so and the relocation is rescheduled to Dec 13,” he said.

In a statement by the MPK, the council apologised to the public for the inconvenience caused by the delay.

There will be several points in Klang town to pick and drop off passengers after the Klang Utara bus terminal shifts to Meru.

The council said all the relocation would continue despite protest from certain parties.

The state government anno-unced earlier that the operation of the Klang Utara bus station would be relocated to the new terminal in Jalan Meru as part of township’s development plan and efforts to ease traffic congestion in the town.

All bus and taxi operators would be operating from the new RM300mil terminal, about 6km from the current site.

The Klang Utara terminal and the express bus and taxi terminals in Lorong Kepayang will cease operation.
