BUKIT JALIL, 23 APRIL 2021: Pavilion Bukit Jalil – The Icon of Connectivity today opened a new flyover, directly linking Bukit Jalil City (Jalan 13/155C) to Puchong via the Bukit Jalil Highway. Built by Malton Berhad (Malton), the innovative property developer behind the iconic 50-acre Bukit Jalil City, this one-way 300-meter flyover began construction in 2018 and was completed 6 months ahead of schedule to benefit the community with greater accessibility.

"This new flyover will not only improve accessibility for the Bukit Jalil community, but also benefit Pavilion Bukit Jalil’s tenants by connecting the mall to a bigger catchment population surrounding Bukit Jalil. Along with other upgrades to surrounding infrastructure, we are committed to create a new highly-accessible metropolis in Bukit Jalil, with Pavilion Bukit Jalil as its landmark lifestyle and shopping destination," shared Dato' Joyce Yap, Retail Planner of Pavilion Bukit Jalil.
The overall upgrades to the infrastructure surrounding Bukit Jalil City's Masterplan make Pavilion Bukit Jalil highly accessible and the linkage to the whole of Klang Valley through various highways makes it easy and convenient to drive to Pavilion Bukit Jalil, reinforcing its position as the Icon of Connectivity. To date, alongside the new flyover, the masterplan includes the 100ft road, widening of roads to 6 lanes, new U-turns, an underpass and tunnel access to the upcoming mall's basement carpark.
"Road connectivity along Bukit Jalil have enhanced in recent years, in anticipation of the upcoming Pavilion Bukit Jalil and other major developments in Bukit Jalil City by Malton. The new flyover will definitely shorten my travel time to work and ease peak hour traffic congestion, shared Mr. Mathu, resident of the Bukit Jalil City neighbourhood.
"Overall traffic flow in Bukit Jalil will definitely be smoother with this new flyover. It's much easier to exit my place to Puchong now. Malton definitely did great in planning a well-connected city. I look forward to the new Pavilion Bukit Jalil – which is directly connected to my condo and the recreational park via the pedestrian link bridge," commented Ms. Hee Siew Kim, resident of The Park Sky Residence.

"This new flyover by Malton will definitely reduce travel time and ease traffic congestion for customers, shop owners and staff working at the Signature Shop Offices while residing in the surrounding areas like Subang, Sunway and Kinrara. With Pavilion Bukit Jalil opening soon, I anticipate a bigger influx of new customers to Bukit Jalil, shared Mr. Alex, owner of a bookstore at the Signature Shop Offices, Bukit Jalil City.
The catchment population of 1.9 million in and around Bukit Jalil will also enjoy better foot-traffic accessibility with 4 upcoming pedestrian link bridges expected to be completed in June 2021.
