New underpasses were opened a few days ago. Two are at the Jalan Cheras/Jalan Loke Yew roundabout and one at the Jalan Cheras/Taman Len Seng interchange. Some photos taken today at the latter's underpass.

Underpasses to help ease congestion in Jalan Cheras
Friday April 16, 2010
The Jalan Cheras/Taman Len Seng project was constructed in a move to alleviate traffic congestion when coming out of Kajang to Kuala Lumpur/Petaling Jaya while easing traffic movement from the surrounding residential estates to enter or exit Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya.
Built at a cost of RM77mil, the project involved construction of a flyover crossing Jalan Cheras for traffic flow from KL and PJ to Taman Len Seng and Taman Orkid Desa, two tunnels (two-lane) for traffic heading from Kajang to Petaling Jaya, the upgrading of Jalan 1/144A junction, and the upgrading of Jalan Cheras and roads leading into Taman Len Seng and Kg Sungai Midah.
