KUALA LUMPUR: A traffic diversion scheme will be carried out at a section of Federal Highway Route 2, between Km18.7 and Km19.6, to facilitate the construction works of the Kelana Jaya light rail transit (LRT) Line Extension Project.
In a press statement, Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd said the works, to take place at the highway median, will be affecting the lanes on both directions of the highway (Kuala Lumpur-bound and Klang/Shah Alam-bound).
The traffic diversion which started yesterday will end on March 31 next year.
"Part of the dedicated Klang-bound motorcycle lane at the affected area will be temporarily closed during the duration. Motorcyclists will be diverted into a specially-reserved lane on the Federal Highway prior to merging back into the unaffected Klang/Shah Alam-bound motorcycle lane.
The Ampang Line LRT extension will start from the Sri Petaling station, passing through Kinrara and Puchong before ending at Putra Heights. It covers a distance of 17.7km and will have 11 new stations.
The Kelana Jaya LRT extension will begin from the Kelana Jaya station, passing through Subang Jaya and USJ, before ending at Putra Heights. Covering a distance of 17km, it will have 12 stations.
