The Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) will close the FAS tunnel near PJU 1A/4F and PJU 1A/4D effective April 22.

The decision was made in view of the traffic problems faced by Taman Kelana Idaman residents.

The tunnel serves as an access road to the Damansara-Puchong Highway (LDP) and neighbouring areas such as Ara Damansara, Taman Mayang, Taman Megah Mas and Taman Emas.

The residents had raised a number of traffic and safety concerns due to the increasing number of vehicles passing through the residential roads leading to the tunnel.

Petaling Jaya mayor Datuk Mohamad Roslan Sakiman said many large vehicles and lorries were using the tunnel daily, disturbing the peace of residents in the area.

“Road users are advised to use the Subang airport road instead,” he said.

He added that an alternative road would be built to serve as a link to Jalan PJU 1A/1 soon.
