New traffic dispersal system for Jalan Tun Razak will result in smoother traffic flow at peak hours – DBKL


According to the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), motorists who travel along Jalan Tun Razak during peak hours can expect a smoother traffic flow. This is due to the implementation of a new traffic dispersal system for one of the most packed roads in the city, which came into effect on Sunday night (November 8).

Sabudin Mohd Salleh, DBKL Civil Engineering and Urban Transportation Department deputy director told Bernama that the traffic dispersal system could reduce Jalan Tun Razak’s congestion resulting from the high volume of vehicles coming from secondary roads.

As we’ve previously reported, here’s what to expect with the implementation of the traffic dispersal system for Jalan Tun Razak:

  • Vehicles from Jalan Pekeliling Lama are only allowed to flow into Jalan Ipoh/Jalan Tun Razak
  • Vehicles heading towards Lebuhraya Sultan Iskandar (formerly Lebuhraya Mahameru) are to use the Jalan Ipoh/Jalan Tun Razak traffic light intersection under the flyover
  • Vehicles from Jalan Tun Razak (from Jalan Semarak/Jalan Ampang) will have to use Bulatan Pahang if they wish to head to Jalan Ipoh
  • Vehicles from the direction of Jalan Tun Razak (from Bulatan Pahang) heading to Jalan U-Thant are to use the road below the flyover, passing the Jalan Semarak and Jalan Ampang junctions
  • Vehicles heading towards Cheras and the south can still use the flyover, but will no longer be able to turn into Jalan U-Thant
  • Vehicles from the direction of Jalan Ampang (from Jalan Jelatek) flowing into Jalan Tun Razak (south-bound) can only turn into Jalan U-Thant

With the traffic dispersal system now in full effect, road dividers have been installed on certain roads in order to block vehicles from accessing Jalan Tun Razak, or to re-route them. Have you experienced the new traffic flow on your drive along Jalan Tun Razak? Do you think that the new system will be effective?

    So this is the best illustration on how they are going to spend on the allocated budget of RM900 million for Jalan Tun Rzazak Traffic Dispersal Project announced during Budget 2016.

  • Do they know why Tun Razak/Amapng intersection is so damn jam? Its because the cops at the Bukit Bintang intersection can stop all traffic for up to 20mins allowing vehicles from bukit bintang to turn (right) into Tun Razak (south bound) during peak hours.

    Those exiting from Jalan Tun Razak (south bound) to turn right into Jalan Bukit Bintang causes a very serious backlog for the entire rest of Jalan Tun Razak going all the way back to the Jalan Ampang intersection all the way back to IJN/GH.

    Try sitting at Royal Selangor Golf Club intersection for 20 mins. You can hear the cars horning the traffic cops. While I understand the need to clear city traffic and diverting as much cars into the inner ring roads, this extended wait causes massive traffic on Tun Razak.

    Traffic police needs to learn proper traffic flow allocation time for each side. Sometimes, the entire Bukit Bintang/TunRazak Intersection is all jammed up across causing zero flow. If is done properly, they could have let others move rather then making the intersection like a can of sardine.

      since when did the traffic cops know anything about traffic management. They love to dig a bigger hole to fill smaller holes. Just look at the Penchala Link to Jln Duta flyover, to clear traffic on the plus highway, they can stop cars from flyover and the backlog can go all the way to the penchala toll, you can hoot until your car batt dies but the cop cant be bothered

      I agree, the BB/Tun Razak intersection is the holdup. And we got traffic in all 6 lanes all trying to get into the 2 lane underpass below.

      Those coming from the East end of Jalan Ampang. How on earth to get to Sg. Besi/SMART?

    • Do agree with you. Most of the time traffic became worse when policemen replace traffic light. This happened even in Sg Petani which not as busy as in KL roads. Sometime dont understand why they gatal tangan want to control traffic which is better before the interfere..haiiyaa..

    As long as they don’t install those dam traffic lights, it will be smooth.

    Eg Seremban highway turnoff before the old Mint hotel at the tuft club into serdang, it was smooth after they have completed the fly-over but some bodoh fella installed traffic lights and the whole place became jam again affecting the whole Seremban highway!

    let the traffic light do its job…let the traffic police monitor the traffic at traffic light and ease the flow if necessary…DBKL & ITIS had spent a lot to monitor the traffic flow in KL with their cameras..

    Not sure if it is a great idea but definitely not enough study on the consequences.
    They must take into consideration of the attitude of Malaysia drivers.
    Traffic now go into Jalan Uthant from Jalan Ampang and cars are making a u turn at Jalan Uthant. This causes a new jam making as making u turn here is difficult due to long queue of vehicles getting into Jalan Tun Razak from Jalan U Thant.
    The net effect is that there are just as many cars getting into Jalan Tun Razak plus a new jam

    • It’s chaos. Nobody who needs to go east on U-Thant can get where they need to go because every damn idiot is holding up traffic trying to do the u-turn back to Tun Razak. Nobody who uses U-Thant to get to Tun Razak can get where they need to go because every damn idiot is holding up traffic trying to do the u-turn back to Tun Razak. It’s madness.

    the best thing is police will only control the traffic until 7pm..wtheck…shift changes?police mngmnt should extend the time at least until 9pm..then it will be effective..some more congestion at ampang park trafic light mostly come from busses…hit the redlight sign and stand still in the middle of the junction heading to jalan ampang from ampang park. if u see other vehicle stand still inside the yellow hatch lines..stop at the trfc light eventhough the light still green.idiot bus driver.police no control!!
