TRANSIT Says:

Construction on the flyover at Jalan Travers and Jalan Bangsar is already happening. And while we at TRANSIT are not really happy with this traffic dispersal project, we can see the benefits of some of the infrastructure.

Imagine if the ramps that connect KL Sentral to Jalan Bangsar, Jalan Tun Sambanthan and Jalan Syed Putra were for public transport vehicles (buses) only! That would do so much for reducing congestion in Brickfields and in KL because it would direct the long distance bus services off of Jalan Tun Sambanthan and directly to the highway.

If the ramps were combined with bus lanes and a new bus rapid transit service like Instanbul’s Metrobus, it would have an amazing effect, reducing traffic congestion in Brickfields and improving public transport access to the highways.
