Written by

If you’re not already using public transport, you will have to on Friday as the KL City Grand Prix gears up for the weekend-long event. This means that there will be several road closures and traffic detours happening in the city centre. 

The 3.2km street circuit will be reduced to one-way traffic starting with Jalan Sultan Ismail, Jalan Raja Chulan, Jalan Perak, Jalan P Ramlee and Jalan Ampang. According to Pakatan Traffic, the traffic consultant for the event, the junction from Jalan Sultan Ismail to Jalan P Ramlee will be closed from Thursday at 8pm. Road closures for the other affected roads will start at midnight. On race day itself, Jalan Sultan Ismail, Jalan Ampang, Jalan P Ramlee, Jalan Perak and Jalan Raja Chulan will be closed from 6am to 6pm until Sunday.

Our advice for workers in the city: Get out really early to avoid train crowds, or just call in sick.
