KUALA LUMPUR: Two major highways in the city centre will be closed this Sunday (May 21) for the Standard Chartered Marathon 2017.
The Ampang-KL Elevated Highway will be closed between 1.30am and 10.30am while the Duta- Ulu Kelang Expressway will be closed between 2.30am and 11.30am.
Additionally, there will be closures affecting 24 roads in the city including Jalan Raja along Dataran Merdeka, Jalan Bukit Bintang, Jalan Kuching, Jalan Parlimen, Jalan Damansara, and parts of the MRR2.
City Traffic Police chief Asst Comm Mohd Nadzri Hussain said the road closures will start from 4am until about 11.30am.
"This is to accommodate the marathon as well as the road clean-up after the run," he said.
Road users are advised to take public transport such as the LRT and MRT to get into the City Centre during the marathon.
He said trains will also be in service as early as 2am to accommodate runners and the public.
However, ACP Mohd Nadzri said there are about 14 alternative routes into the city centre including through Jalan  Syed Putra, Jalan Bukit Bintang along Lot 10 and Jalan Tun Razak.
Waze users will also be redirected through these routes.
He said about 350 officers from the KL Traffic Division will be deployed to help control traffic and advised road users to heed instructions of traffic officials.
About 36,000 runners will be participating in this year's run with over 8,000 of them aiming to complete the 42 route.
