Pintasan Saloma

Pintasan Saloma, a new pedestrian bridge which opens today to the public, goes to create better connectivity to the city from Kampung Bharu to Kuala Lumpur City Center (KLCC), Malaysia. The seamless link helps to connect the two prominent destinations which have been separated by the Klang river and the six‐lane Ampang Kuala Lumpur Elevated highway (AKLEH), between the old and new parts of Kuala Lumpur. The link was commissioned by the Kampung Bharu Development Corporation (PKB). The Pintasan Saloma was inspired by the Sirih Junjung that is traditionally offered in ceremonies and is a symbol of unity. the Pintasan Saloma represents a ceremonial gesture that embodies the connection between KLCC and Kampong Bharu. It will include a re‐development of Jalan Saloma that will be redesigned to accommodate a small plaza, wider footpaths with integrated landscape and street furniture; and 370m elevated walkway including bridge that spans 69m across Sungai Klang and AKLEH. The Pintasan Saloma will terminate at Kampong Baru with a small elevated platform that provides opportunity to view KLCC and other major city landmarks including the future of Kampong Bharu.
