Kerinchi Link 041

A new access road has been opened along Jalan Kerinchi 3 to help alleviate traffic congestion, particularly rush hour traffic heading on to the Sprint Expressway and the Penchala Link from the Federal Highway, both from KL- and PJ-bound routes. The 800-metre road, located across Bangsar South, will also serve as an alternative route for motorists wanting to access Jalan Kerinchi and Jalan Pantai Baru.

“The traffic jam along Jalan Kerinchi and Jalan Pantai Baru is very critical especially during peak hours. This project is aimed at easing this traffic condition,” said Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor at the launch of the new access road.

“This is also a shortcut for motorists who are heading towards the Penchala Link and Sprint Highway,” he added. The new road access was constructed to the tune of RM20 million, as understood by The Malaysian Insider. Construction of the road first began in November 2013 and was completed in May 2015.
