According to a report by The starmotorists will have to wait until December if they want to use the Damansara Link on the Sprint Highway to head to Jalan Maarof, Bangsar.
This is to facilitate the construction of a 1.34 km three-lane viaduct to Jalan Semantan, which replaces the previous one along Jalan Johar. The Damansara link has been closed since the end of October last yearand the prolonged closure will likely worsen traffic congestion.
A spokesperson for Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) said the road project had been extended due to several factors including bad weather and delay in shipping materials.
Motorists traveling from Petaling Jaya to Bangsar can take a detour via Jalan Beringin-Jalan Damanlela-Jalan Damansuria. They are also advised to use four alternative routes during peak hours, namely Penchala Link, Jalan Tuanku Abdul Halim, Kerinchi Link as well as Jalan Universiti.
