Take heed, road users, especially those of you who commute along Jalan Tuanku Abdul Halim (formerly known as Jalan Duta) – these new images suggest that the area is due for some serious roadworks which will continue to affect surrounding traffic for some time to come.

Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has confirmed that repair works approaching the “Duta tunnel” is considered “super urgent,” with the left lane there requiring immediate resurfacing, as reported by a Star Radio Traffic social media post.

The pictures posted on social media show a heavily damaged section of the road, along with the ongoing works there with traffic getting by slowly.

As such, traffic congestion is expected to persist particularly along the Jalan Istana highway itself, and several other surrounding areas as far out as the Syed Putra and Jalan Travers intersections, the KL-Seremban highway from the Sungai Besi toll, and the Kuchai Lama intersection from the New Pantai Expressway (NPE).

As yet, no further reports have surfaced detailing DBKL’s action plans, but it is assumed that traffic delays may continue for the foreseeable future. Take note, plan your journeys ahead well, and drive safe.
