After years of waiting, the link bridge between KL Eco City and The Gardens Mall is finally open to the public. This is perhaps one of the most highly anticipated openings for many users.
If you want to go Mid Valley Megamall or The Gardens Mall, you can now use an easier way to get there without being stuck in traffic or the KTM. It provides covered access to Abdullah Hukum station on the Kelana Jaya LRT line.
Given a large number of office workers and shoppers who commute to Mid Valley daily, the linkway will uphold Kelana Jaya LRT Line’s status as the country’s most-used urban rail line, averaging close to 330,000 users on working days.
The much-awaited announcement was made on the13th November 2019 on The Garden’s official Facebook page. Since then, it has met with much joy by those who travel by public transport to the surrounding area for work or leisure.
The initial construction of the bridge had to be ceased in November of 2016 when it collapsed and killed 1 person. Since then, the bridge has remained closed until today. The bridge will provide easy access between the Abdullah Hukum LRT station, KL Eco City, and The Gardens Shopping Mall.
For those heading to KLIA from Mid Valley, you can get on the KLIA Express from KL Sentral, which is only two stops away from Abdullah Hukum via LRT.
The bridge is open from 6am onwards and closed at 1am. The bridge links to the entrance located on the 1st floor between Isetan and Ichiriki Japanese Restaurant in The Gardens Mall.
To give you a clearer picture, an LRT ride from KL Sentral to Abdullah Hukum station costs RM1.50 if you use the TNG card (RM1.60 by token), while KLCC to the same station costs RM2.70 with TNG card (RM3.10 by token).
For frequent commuters, you can always opt for a “My100” unlimited travel card at RM100/month, which is offered only to Malaysian residents. As for short-term travelers and visitors, RapidKL had recently introduced its “MyCity” pass which provides unlimited rides from RM15/day.
For those who are excited to use the bridge as we are, let us know what you think of the bridge!
