  Technical visits 3

The Traffic Management Centre (TMC) located at the Malaysian Highway Authority is a national traffic control centre that consolidates traffic control and surveillance functions for all toll highway networks. TMC also integrates and coordinates real-time traffic information from all toll highway concessionaires. The centre is equipped with the Intelligent Transportation System and provides real time traffic information to highway users via variable message signboards, portal web, closed circuit TV, short messaging system and multimedia messaging systems. TMC also liaises with relevant authorities and provides tow truck services for faster incident / breakdown clearance on the highways.

Technical Visit 2 : Setiawangsa - Pantai Expressway

Technical Visit 4 : Damansara-Shah Alam Elevated Expressway (DASH)

The alignment of 29.8 kilometre-long Setiawangsa-Pantai Expressway (SPE) will traverse north to south of Kuala Lumpur and will serve areas such as University Tunku Abdul Rahman, Wangsa Maju, Setiawangsa, Ampang, the Tun Razak Exchange & Bandar Malaysia development corridor and Kerinchi. The dual-two carriageway with seven (7) interchanges and two (2) ramps allows for the provision of intercept park and ride stations.

The SPE is expected to provide an alternative route for road users with improved and more efcient trafc dispersal system in and around Kuala Lumpur city centre to complement and relief peak hour congestion on existing arterial roads and expressways along its proposed alignment.

This 16.25 km expressway, from Puncak Perdana in the west to Damansara Perdana in the east, is a combination of at-grade and elevated structure comprising dual 2 and 3-lane carriageway. The new alignment traverses through Nusa Rhu, Sunway Kayangan, Sunway Alam Suria and SPK Cahaya development areas. It links these development areas to Subang through several interchanges and eventually to the highly developed residential and business centres at Kota Damansara, Mutiara Damansara and Damansara Perdana. The expressway is well-connected to the existing highways such as Guthrie Corridor Expressway, New Klang Valley Expressway, Lebuhraya Damansara Puchong and Sprint Expressway thereby maximising its coverage and providing road users with more travel alternatives.

Technical Visit 5 : Merdeka 118 Tower
118 tower The iconic 118-storey Merdeka 118 tower is located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. With a completed height of 678.9 metres, this commanding tower now stands as the tallest in Southeast Asia. The development, once fully completed, will provide seamless connectivity for visitor access. The precinct is directly connected to the newly built Merdeka MRT Station, two LRT stations, Plaza Rakyat and Hang Tuah, as well as two monorail stations, Maharajalela and Hang Tuah. The whole development will also be directly linked to Jalan Syed Putra, Jalan Damansara and Jalan Istana via the Beleld Tunnel which will be a 2-storey underground tunnel passing underneath Kampung Attap and Jalan Maharajalela, all the way to the basement of the precinct. Merdeka 118 tower’s futuristic and symbolic design embraces Malaysia’s rich history and diverse cultures.
