Puduraya bus terminal to be closed March 19 for four months

KUALA LUMPUR: The Puduraya bus terminal will be closed temporarily for four months from March 19.

UDA Holdings Bhd managing director Datuk Jaafar Abu Hassan said the closure was to allow for works that would upgrade the terminal and provide more comfort to travellers.

"The upgrading is a drastic step taken by UDA to confront the matters of travel discomfort, lack of amenities and traffic congestion around the terminal.

"The closure also needs to be done for safety as there will be demolition works," he said at a news conference here on March 19.

Jafaar said the upgrading encompassed three stages – short-, medium- and long-term plans.

He said the upgrading work was now at 22%, with total completion expected to be at the end of the year.
