KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 4): Built to ease traffic woes faced by motorists at Jalan Kuchai Lama Interchange, the Kuchai Link 2 direct overpass is expected to be opened to the public on Nov 12.

Project manager Nur Amani Zakaria said the direct two-lane overpass from Jalan Kuchai Lama to Sungai Besi Highway (Besraya) over the existing Maju Expressway (MEX) Highway and Kuchai Interchange would help in decongesting the roads and decrease commuting time by about 10 to 15 minutes.

"It shall serve to overcome the traffic congestion encountered during peak hours at the Kuchai Interchange and the Jalan Kuchai Lama-Jalan Kuchai Maju intersection," she said during a media tour here today. 

Nur Amani said the viaduct commences at Jalan Kuchai Lama near UPA Factory and terminates at Besraya Highway, adding that upon completion, the viaduct would provide uninterrupted traffic flow from Besraya to New Pantai Expressway (NPE) via Kuchai Link and from NPE via Jalan Kuchai Lama to Besraya. 

She said the at-grade road Kuchai Interchange would be reconfigured from four-phase traffic light intersection into free-flow traffic intersection. 

"The project will not only benefit the locals, but also motorists who travel from Petaling Jaya, Bangsar, Subang and those travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Seremban," she added. 

She said the 1.17km overpass costing about RM60 million, borne by Besraya, took around three years to complete.
