Crossing Plazas, Nodes & Bridges
Three identified types which present a “Low- Hanging Opportunity” to improve connectivity and accessibility to Transport nodes and there are more areas which can be converted and improved to walkability.
The intersection outside of Puduraya Bus Terminal converges on 3 major roads– Jalan Tun Perak, Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock & Jalan Pudu and is one of the major transit nodes in that area. High footfall from users both local & foreign makes this intersection an important one. It has a below average type crossing model and users are already actively using the prepared crossings – traffic signals, zebra crossings, islands / median & the likes.
Thus elevating this area into a Crossing Plaza will further enhance its role and function for the safety, mobility and connectivity of the users for adjacent areas. Many more junctions within the Study Area can be upgraded to include a Crossing Plaza.
Taman Monolith Petronas is an underutilised park located near the KTM roundabout between Jalan Tugu & Jalan Kinabalu. It is a lush, green park with high potential connectivity as a Green Node to National Mosque/ Old KTM Railway Station and even beyond to National Museum in the south & Pasar Seni LRT to the east by way of KTM Railway Station.
