PETALING JAYA: A new traffic management scheme will be implemented at the Subang Jaya Selatan Interchange on the Lebuhraya Damansara Puchong Expressway (LDP) for a two-month period starting tomorrow.
The traffic management scheme is to facilitate the final stage of construction for a new road system by Subang Residency Sdn Bhd, the developer for the One-City Project.
This affects traffic from Puchong and Putra Heights heading towards Shah Alam and Subang Jaya.
Motorists from Puchong and Putra Heights heading towards Shah Alam, Klang or Hicom should keep right shortly after the Shell petrol station and take the newly opened flyover to access Persiaran Klang.
Meanwhile, motorists from Puchong and Putra Heights heading towards USJ or Subang Jaya should keep left after the Shell petrol station and take the turning under the flyover to access Persiaran Kewajipan.
“Two lanes on the new flyover will be opened as part of the scheme, which will move towards a permanent system after two months,” said MCT Consortium Berhad Architecture Department head Shawn Chong.
“By the end of February, the final configuration will have a free flow traffic scheme without any traffic lights at the interchange.
“The final configuration’s scheme will be seven-lane wide in a single direction, including three lanes on the 500m-long flyover.”
Chong said the developer has thus far spent RM60mil for the traffic and infrastructure upgrade.
According to him, works on the traffic and infrastructure upgrade commenced in June last year, followed by works on the flyover four months later.
One City is a 77-acre integrated commercial development located in USJ 25, Subang Jaya.
It features office suites and towers, serviced apartments, a hotel, an entertainment hub, banquet hall and shopping mall.
MCT Consortium is the parent company of Subang Residency.
Signage and banners on the new traffic management scheme will be placed before the split; flyers will also be distributed to motorists at the Puchong Barat Toll Plaza.
Highway users are advised to follow the signs posted around the site to reach their respective destinations and for a smooth traffic flow on the LDP.
Also present at the briefing on the new traffic management scheme were representatives from LDP concessionaire Litrak.

On the Mass Rapid Transit front, MRT Corp said there would be a one-month temporary night closure of the right-most lane on Sprint highway for a length of 600m (Damansara-bound), in front of Pusat Bandar Damansara from now till Jan 20, 2013 from midnight to 5am to facilitate utilities detection and piloting works.
The closure was to ensure that construction works can proceed as planned.
