Mass Rapid Transit Corporation Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp) announced that the stretch of Jalan Bukit Bintang (Jalan Tun Razak-bound) between Chulan Square and the Jalan Tun Razak intersection is now closed to all traffic following a sinkhole incident last night.
A new sinkhole has appeared at Jalan Bukit Bintang, at the right-most lane of the Pavilion-bound side of the road opposite Menara Worldwide.
In addition, the two right-most lanes of Jalan Bukit Bintang (Pavilion-bound) are also closed.
A traffic contra-flow system has been implemented, whereby traffic from Bukit Bintang heading towards Jalan Tun Razak will be directed to the two remaining lanes of Jalan Bukit Bintang (Pavilion-bound).
As a result, all traffic from Jalan Tun Razak heading towards the Bukit Bintang area will not be allowed to enter Jalan Bukit Bintang and are being redirected to Jalan Eaton where they can rejoin Jalan Bukit Bintang via Jalan Conlay.
Several roads in the Bukit Bintang area are closed in conjunction with the visit of United States President Barack Obama. – April 27, 2014.
