New tidal flow on the Grand Saga Highway in place, Kajang to KL – weekday mornings 6.30 to 8.30 am

The Grand Saga Highway is very congested during rush hours, but here’s something that could hopefully help ease the jam. The highway operator has launched a new tidal flow system for weekday mornings, Monday to Friday, 6.30 to 8.30 am. This is for KL-bound traffic from Kajang.

It starts at KM14.9 on the highway and the tidal flow lane is reserved for Class 1 light vehicles. The start point is after the Batu 11 toll plaza, near the Telekom building. It starts earlier than the previous KM13.1 tidal flow entrance (near NSK), which is now closed. The KM12.3 entrance near the opposing bound’s Batu 9 toll plaza remains. See the map above for a clearer picture.

This is a longer stretch of the extra lane, which will hopefully improve the morning jam situation, a bit. Remember not to use the tidal flow lane if you’re planning to exit at Taman Connaught, SUKE Highway, Exit 702 (Hulu Langat) and Exit 703 (Telekom). Drive safe.

    Matter of time those Cheras folks got to get up earlier every year b4 6am to escape the horrific jams.
    Now we have SUKE, and contra lanes.Still as jammed as b4.
    What is missing?
    Time to instill carpooling,by imposing CBD charges.

    • MRT Station parking also not enough, park n ride failed big time. Many places not in mrt bus coverage, ride sharing also expensive, and that’s the result, everybody still prefer to drive. Wait till ron95 RM 4 per litre then traffic should improve.

    • Who said MRT is a failure…? Have u been on the MRT during peak hours…? It’s the increased of car ownership & lack of 1st mile last mile connection that contribute to the congestion…

  • I’ll never use the tidal flow after experience longer time from Balakong to KL last week. It will stuck from loke yew towards KL, barely moving, stand still for very long, the travel time is even longer than jam along Jalan Cheras towards KL.
