    Elevated road at Jln Kewajipan

    2 days ago I was driving along Jalan Kewajipan next to Sri KL during a heavy down pour. Water was pouring heavily from the elevated road above. I nearly lost control of the car as I drove under the torrent of water. I wonder if this is a standard hazard feature. Please advise.

    By right, an elevated road or bridge will have a drainage system in pipes, and water shouldn't fall down like that.

    now it's still under construction....
    so the drainage wasn't up yet, i think

    I wonder if during heavy downpour, will the construction debris wash down by the rain? hence hitting someone down there?

    and do you notice the part where they join the ramp coming down with the elevated road (somewhere in front SJMC), the joint looks very shoddy to me, and the debris looks like might fall off.

    dun la drive so close to the downflow - unless you wanted a free car wash...

    never knew AZRB could build flyovers and elevated highways wih built-in, free car-wash below..

    lbn, lucky u Can u imagine if along the water came the construction debris such as concrete or broken pieces of concrete or maybe pieces of stone fallen off from the tarred road surface?

    Not that I want to drive under the "waterfall", my friend. No chance to change lane with bumper to bumper traffic especially during a down pour. Experience yourself then you know. Appreciate someone who can solve this problem now before waiting for the elevated road to be in operation. To avoid any unforeseen accidents.

    I believe that they can only complete the drainage system when the highway is fully completed.

    Although the sections of the highway appear to be connected, they are not fully connected at the road level so there is still a gap between the sections.

    Everytime there is a rainstorm I feel like running over to take a photo of our very own Subang Jaya waterfall!

    Thumbs down More cars will pile up at the Summit area

    Why are we worried about the drainage system? The flyover will direct traffic away from Subang a bit faster but it does not solve the traffic problem in front of Summit. Think of the hundreds of cars returning to Subang which will be channeled at great speed to the Summit area and exacerbate the bad traffic situation there. It is a new nightmare waiting to occur. The same thing happened when the New Pantai highway was built and hundreds of cars were brought quickly to the front of Sunway Pyramid and cause a massive jam each evening.

    My opinion, I use the main road in front of SMK Subamg Utama when coming back from work from KL. Its nearer to my house anyway........
