A new proposed highway linking Kinrara in Puchong to the New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE) will be cutting across Petaling Jaya near Tropicana.
The new link, which is off the Kesas Highway cuts through Section 4, Section 8, Jalan Timur, Jalan Semangat, Rothmans roundabout, Damansara Intan and Damansara Kim.
The toll highway, expected to start construction soon, also goes along the Sprint Highway all the way to the NKVE near Tropicana area.
Traffic planning consultant Goh Bok Yen said the new link would help alleviate the traffic problems in Petaling Jaya.
“Petaling Jaya badly needs roads that provide good access. It basically requires dispersal link to access the highways for ingress and digress,” he said.
Goh cited as an example the NKVE which, he said, cut on the west side to Kota Damansara, Ara Damansara and Tropicana.
A few links that are mainly used are Persiaran Surian, the FAS tunnel and Tropicana.
For the entire Kota Damansara, Damansara Perdana and Mutiara Damansara, he said logically there should be another route to allow traffic out of Persiaran Surian.
