If you regularly use the SMART Tunnel and the roads in KL’s vicinity, you might want to avoid using them this weekend.

That’s because the tunnel and the roads around that area will be closed on Saturday (14 April) from 11pm onwards in conjunction with the Viper Tunnel Challenge 2018, reported NST

FYI, the Viper Tunnel Challenge is a marathon held in the longest dual function tunnel in Southeast Asia (SMART Tunnel) with 4,000 people participating this Saturday.

An excerpt from the statement that was released yesterday (12 April 2018) by Syarikat Mengurus Air Banjir & Terowong Sdn Bhd (SMART) reads;

“In addition, the road closure will include the entrance to Jalan Kampung Pandan through the traffic light intersection at Jalan Imbi and Jalan Sultan Ismail and the entrance to Jalan Kampung Pandan via Jalan Barat.”

“This closure also involves the entrance to Jalan Kampung Pandan via Jalan Changkat Thambi Dollah and the entrance to Jalan Sultan Ismail from the Kampung Pandan roundabout, vehicles to be diverted to Jalan Davis while the route in Kampung Pandan roundabout will be opened as usual.”

On top of that, the road closure will also include the entrance at Jalan Kampung Pandan from Jalan Perkasa heading towards Jalan Sultan Ismail and the entire Jalan Imbi in front of Berjaya Times Square.

In short, stay away from Jalan Kampung Pandan this Saturday! 

However, not all roads will be closed as the opposite lane in front of Berjaya Times Square from Jalan Imbi to Jalan Sultan Ismail will still be opened as usual.
