MRT Corp has released a Traffic Management Plan for the SPRINT highway, announcing two closures beginning today: the leftmost lane on a 400 metre stretch PJ-bound in front of Bangsar Puteri Condo until June 12, 2013 for 24 hours daily, and the rightmost lane on a 600 metre stretch KL-bound in front of Victoria Station restaurant until January 2, 2013 from 12 am to 5 am daily (see map below).

The first closure will allow construction work over the monsoon drain, while the second is to facilitate utilities detection and piloting works.

Public relations and communications director Amir Mahmood Razak said the traffic management plan has been perused extensively to ensure minimal disruption to traffic. However, he said there would be times – when there are significant events going on in the city, for instance – when the amount of traffic would be higher.
