mrt sprint

Here is a reminder to all motorists who use the Sprint highway. There will be a total road closure at KM3.6 of the highway, in front of Phileo Damansara and Eastin Hotel this Sunday, September 6. It will be closed for 18 hours, from 12 midnight till 6pm.

MMC Gamuda KVMRT deputy director Adil Putra said the road closure is to facilitate works for the Phileo Damansara MRT Station entrance link bridge. “This total closure is necessary as we need a safe working space to cater for our heavy machineries that are needed for the installation works,” he told Bernama.

He added that during this closure, motorists from Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI) and Petaling Jaya heading towards Kuala Lumpur will have to make a U-turn and turn left into Jalan Tan Sew Pow, and then back into Sprint highway before turning into Jalan 17/21.


Motorists can also choose to turn left into Jalan 17/22 before making their way to Jalan 16/6, or proceed to Jalan Universiti before joining Jalan Dato’ Abu Bakar to head back to Kuala Lumpur. This diversion also applies to motorists from the NKVE heading towards Kuala Lumpur.

On the other hand, motorists from Kuala Lumpur heading towards Petaling Jaya, TTDI or the NKVE can choose to turn into Jalan Dato’ Abu Bakar, turn right into Jalan 16/16 and right again to Jalan 17/1.

Besides flagmen and traffic signages, there will be police traffic personnel surrounding the areas during the road closure to guide motorists.
