EF­FEC­TIVE June 3, the right turn­ing into Jalan Tuanku Ab­dul Rah­man from Jalan Sul­tan Is­mail will be per­ma­nently closed to mo­torists to ease traf­fic flow.

In a state­ment, Kuala Lumpur City Hall said the in­ter­sec­tion’s clo­sure would re­duce the traf­fic stop phases from four to three.

“Re­duc­tion of the (traf­fic stop) phases (fol­low­ing the road clo­sure) is ex­pected to ease over­all traf­fic flow in the city cen­tre, es­pe­cially in Jalan Sul­tan Is­mail from the Jalan Am­pang junc­tion to the Jalan Tuanku Ab­dul Rah­man-Jalan Sul­tan Is­mail in­ter­sec­tion,” City Hall Cor­po­rate Plan­ning Depart­ment di­rec­tor Khalid Zakaria said.

He sug­gested al­ter­na­tive routes to Jalan Tuanku Ab­dul Rah­man and its sur­round­ing ar­eas:

TURN­ING left from the di­rec­tion of Jalan Sul­tan Is­mail to Jalan Raja Laut at the Jalan Sul­tan Is­mail-Jalan Raja Laut in­ter­sec­tion;

TURN­ING right from Jalan Raja Laut to Jalan Sri Amar at the Jalan Raja Laut-Jalan Sri Amar in­ter­sec­tion; and,

TURN­ING right from Jalan Sri Amar to Jalan Tuanku Ab­dul Rah­man at the Jalan Sri AmarJalan Tuanku Ab­dul Rah­man in­ter­sec­tion.

Khalid urged mo­torists to take note of the changes and ad­here to the road signs.

The re­moval of the right turn­ing from Jalan Sul­tan Is­mail to Jalan Tuanku Ab­dul Rah­man will al­le­vi­ate traf­fic con­ges­tion.
