Some updates concerning the KL Mass Rapid Transit system – MMC-Gamuda has announced the latest set of changes to traffic management around work sites as development continues on Phase 1a of the 51 km-long Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line.

The first involves road realignment works in both directions of Jalan Cheras, near AEON Maluri, from May 8 to June 30, though the number of lanes remain at two each in both directions throughout the period.

The realignment, which affects a 300m stretch between the Sunway Velocity construction site and RapidKL Bus depot, is necessary for underground construction works at the Maluri MRT Underground site.

A continuation of long-term night contra-flow will also be implemented along Jalan Cheras, and this will run from Tesco Cheras, Taman Midah to BHP Petrol Station, Taman Pertama (KL-bound & Kajang-bound), from May 6 to December 6, a period of 215 days.

During the night contra-flow, at least one lane will be made available for motorists from both directions. This move is necessary to enable the launching of steel truss placement in preparation of station works and the construction of the pedestrian bridge to the future Taman Midah MRT station.

Next, a revision involving Persiaran Surian near Dataran Sunway, with the announcement that there will be a temporary lane realignment for Sungai Buloh-bound traffic (with no reduction in number of lanes available). This realignment will be in place from May 5 to November 5, a period of 184 days.
