KLANG, March 4 (Bernama) -- A third bridge is to be built over the Klang river here under a RM230-million project to be completed in 2-1/2 years.

Work on the project, which would form a part of the Klang Ring Road, is to begin in four months, said Works Minister Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu after the launch of the project here by Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo.

"The plans and designs for the project have been completed and the tender will be called soon," Samy Vellu told reporters.

The project involves the construction of a bridge of 0.5km and two kilometres of new road and upgrading of 1.3km of existing road, he said, adding that the new bridge would reduce traffic congestion on the Kota and Musaedin bridges.

Samy Vellu said his ministry had identified a link road in Klang cutting across Jalan Meru up to Jalan Sungai Udang, which would have four interchanges.

Earlier, in his speech at the launch, the minister said the 3.8km bridge project would stimulate growth of industrial sites and development in Klang and raise the socio-economic standard of the people.

He also said that the ministry was planning a fourth bridge to facilitate users of the West Coast Expressway heading into Klang and going from Klang to Banting.
