More traffic diversion updates on the ongoing construction of the KL Mass Rapid Transit system, this time for the month of June – MMC-Gamuda has announced the latest set of changes to traffic management around three MRT construction sites, along Jalan Sungai Buloh, Lebuh Bandar Utama and the Cheras-Kajang (Grand Saga) highway.

From June 1 to June 20, a temporary short-term night contra-flow from 11 pm to 6 am daily will be implemented along Jalan Sungai Buloh (Subang-bound and Kuala Selangor-bound), in two stages. This is to facilitate painting works for piers and SBG alignment in front of two locations around the site.

The first stage, which runs from June 1 to June 8, will see an implementation of a 500 metre-long fast lane closure along Jalan Sungai Buloh (Kuala Selangor-bound) from the abandoned petrol station to the abandoned JG Living Home Gallery. During this period, one traffic lane will be made available for motorists (Kuala Selangor-bound).

Stage two will take place from June 13-20, where a 500 metre-stretch of fast lane closure will take place along Jalan Sungai Buloh (Subang-bound) from the main entrance of the Pusat Latihan Perhutanan Sungai Buloh to the junction of Persiaran Mahogani. During this period, one traffic lane will be made available for Subang-bound motorists.

The medium-term road closure at Lebuh Bandar Utama and Jalan Burhanuddin Helmi, meanwhile, will continue from today until July 31 as painting of the parapet and related works for the MRT Bandar Utama Station is carried out.
