The KL Eco City Pedestrian Bridge That Collapsed

Avoid Mid Valley Megamall For Now
The KL Eco City pedestrian bridge collapse did not directly affect Lingkaran Syed Putra – the road going around Mid Valley Megamall. You can see the location of the KL Eco City pedestrian bridge, in the map below.
However, it is reportedly causing traffic jams on that road because of gawkers. This has caused traffic to back up in nearby roads. You are, therefore, advised to avoid going to Mid Valley Megamall where possible, or the adjoining roads :
- the Federal Highway, from the arch, the Kerinchi Link or the Kerinchi Intersection,
- Jalan Syed Putra, or
- Jalan Bangsar.
