Sunway to spend RM130m on roads, infrastructure upgrades

BANDAR SUNWAY (April 26): Sunway Group announced that they will be undertaking RM130 million worth of roadworks and infrastructure improvements which they hope will alleviate the current traffic congestion in Bandar Sunway, Subang and USJ, as part of the group's corporate responsibility programme.

This comes following a study which they did with the assistance from Majlis Perbandaran Subang Jaya (MPSJ) and Lembaga Lebuhraya Malaysia (LLM).

As a result, Sunway has identified three major roads and areas that are heavily congested with traffic and are in serious need of upgrading works to ensure a smoother traffic flow around the surrounding areas.

Currently, construction has already started along the Lebuhraya Shah Alam Link (KESAS). Roadworks had started at the end of 2011, and will be completed at the end of 2012 at a cost of RM40 million.

The group is also set to embark on a two-lane road widening project from Sunway Pyramid all the way to Persiaran Kewajipan along the New Pantai Expressway (NPE). With a cost of RM20 million, construction will begin in the second half of 2012, and will take approximately 18 months to complete.

Sunway also has plans for a direct link from Sunway South Quay (SSQ) to the NPE, which will start in three-to-five years at a cost of approximately RM70 million.

Other proposed roads and highways upgrading projects — which will be undertaken by LLM and Majlis Bandaraya Petaling Jaya (MBPJ) — in the area include two U-turns along the KESAS Highway: an elevated U-turn next to Persiaran Tujuan; and another before the Sunway toll at KESAS. Construction work will begin in May 2012.
