Motorists who utilise the Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (AKLEH) on a regular basis, take note – parts of the 7.7 km-long highway will be closed from September 22 to November 15 for the Sungai Bunus Flood Mitigation Plan (RTB) project being carried out by the Department of Irrigation and Drainage (DID), Bernama reports.

During the stated period, the highway will be totally closed from Friday until Monday from 11 pm until 4 am, while temporary closures will occur from Monday until Friday from 10 am until 3 pm daily, the DID said via a statement.

The lanes affected by the closure are the AKLEH exit to Jalan Tun Razak and from Jalan Tun Razak into the highway. Motorists are advised to plan their journeys and use alternative routes to avoid getting caught in the traffic congestion that is expected to occur as a result of the planned closures.
