In conjunction with the Viper Tunnel Challenge 2018 event this weekend, several roads around the Smart Tunnel will be closed from 11pm on Saturday, with reopening expected to happen around 8am on Sunday.

The operator of the Smart Tunnel said in a statement that closures involve several roads and entrances to the dual function tunnel, including the entire Jalan Imbi in front of Berjaya Times Square stretch. The opposite lane from Jalan Imbi to Jalan Sultan Ismail will be open as usual, though.

“In addition, the road closure will include the entrance to Jalan Kampung Pandan through the traffic light intersection at Jalan Imbi and Jalan Sultan Ismail and the entrance to Jalan Kampung Pandan via Jalan Barat.

“This closure also involve the entrance to Jalan Kampung Pandan via Jalan Changkat Thambi Dollah and the entrance to Jalan Sultan Ismail from the Kampung Pandan roundabout, vehicles to be diverted to Jalan Davis while the route in Kampung Pandan roundabout will be opened as usual,” the statement said.

Also to be closed is the entry to the ramp at Jalan Kampung Pandan from Jalan Perkasa heading to Jalan Sultan Ismail. Those planning to head to this part of the city centre for weekend revelries, take note.
