A BY­PASS to the Sprint High­way from the Roth­man’s junc­tion in Pe­tal­ing Jaya, which was built about 10 months ago, is im­pass­able as it is blocked by plas­tic bar­ri­cades.

How­ever, some mo­torists, who had been an­tic­i­pat­ing to ply the road as an al­ter­na­tive route, went ahead de­spite the ab­sence of road signs and street­lights.

“The road looks ready for use but it is blocked by plas­tic bar­ri­cades.

“Some mo­torists are tak­ing a de­tour into our neigh­bour­hood to use it.

“We see cars driv­ing on the wrong side of the by­pass try­ing to get to the Roth­man’s junc­tion from Sec­tion 17, near the Sprint High­way, as the lane there is also blocked mid­way by plas­tic bar­ri­cades,” said Jarred Lim from Sec­tion 19.

In Fe­bru­ary, Pe­tal­ing Jaya City Coun­cil engi­neer­ing di­rec­tor Is­mail Shafie told Ac­tion­line that the by­pass would be open to the pub­lic in March.

He said con­trac­tors had yet to in­stall guard rails, street and traf­fic lights.

How­ever, the by­pass has yet to be opened un­til to­day.


The by­pass to the Sprint High­way, which is cor­doned off by plas­tic bar­ri­cades (in­set), is used by some mo­torists to take de­tours through neigh­bour­hoods.
