KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 10 – The rightmost lane of Jalan Damansara in both directions (Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya-bound) will be closed from Jan 15 to April 30 to facilitate construction works of the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT).
MRT in a statement here today said the closure covers a distance of 1.2 kilometres from the Taman Tun Dr Ismail Petronas Station to the Indah Water Konsortium Sewerage Treatment Plant (Taman Tun Dr Ismail).
To make up for the closed lanes, one new lane will be opened in both directions to ensure the number of lanes remained unchanged, it said.
The closure is necessary to facilitate preparation for the construction of MRT piers and Taman Tun Dr Ismail station at Jalan Damansara.
It would also involve comprehensive traffic management plan that has been deliberated thoroughly with all authorities to ensure uninterrupted traffic flow.
Safety barriers, traffic cones and traffic flagman will be placed at the work site to ensure road users are pre-warned of on-going work.
In addition, a 24-hour MRT Ronda will be patrolling the route to attend to any emergencies, it said.
