Kuala Lumpur police chief Commissioner Datuk Seri Mazlan Mansor announced that all 25 roads will be closed from 3am to noon. There will be around 400 police officers and personnel from the Kuala Lumpur City Hall on duty during the event to ensure smooth traffic and maintain safety.

“There will be around 38,000 people including participants present during the event, and we advise those looking to get into the city to plan their routes properly, utilise public transport, and adhere to police instructions,” he said.

To avoid adding on to the expected congestion, motorists are advised to park their vehicles away from the city centre. Another option is to take the public transport service, which will start operation from 2am to accommodate those looking to get into the city during the marathon.

“You can also use the smartphone navigation application Waze to navigate through the city on that day, as it has been calibrated to avoid the closed roads in the city during the marathon,” he said.

Here is the list of roads that will be closed for the event:

  • Dataran Merdeka
  • Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman
  • Jalan Sultan Ismail
  • Jalan Ampang
  • Jalan P.Ramlee
