Major road closures in Kuala Lumpur ahead of New Year celebrations

If you are planning to hit the city to celebrate the new year, you may want to note that several major roads in KL will be closed beginning Friday.

Affected roads are those in the vicinity of Dataran Merdeka, Bukit Bintang, KLCC, Bangsar/Telawi and KL Sentral.

The Dataran Merdeka will be closed from 5pm Friday until 6am the following day while the road at Bukit Bintang will be closed from midnight Friday until 6am on Jan 1.

Several other roads are also expected to be closed in stages according to the prevailing traffic condition.

Where to party..
Countdown parties in Kuala Lumpur and Klang Valley

    One of things I dislike most about celebrating new year here is road closures. Traffic's already bad and people want to be out for the countdown. They are not helping with road closures here and there. Sigh....

    Happy New Year!

  2. We just have to find alternative roads then...

  3. Mei Teng, road closure is a good thing to control traffic otherwise imagine the nightmare out there on the streets. Besides, with the street party at Sungei Wang, for instance, roads leading to the venue would have to be closed. Taking public transport would be a wise move. Happy New Year!
