Sky bridge to KL Sentral Monorail

KVMRT managed to get an official update about the on-going construction of KL Sentral sky bridge linking KL Sentral Monorail station via Nu Sentral.

We have some photos to show. The sky bridge will definitely helped to ease the long walking distance that commuters have to take currently.

With the sky bridge, it only can be considered as proper interchange station between KL Monorail and KL Sentral.

A brief elaboration about Nu Sentral, it is a seven-storey retail mall (gross floor area of 1.2 million square feet) done by joint venture between MRCB and Pelaburan Hartanah Bhd. Claimed to be first integrated ‘green’ lifestyle retail mall.

The retail, dining and entertainment elements have been seamlessly planned across the vast floor area of the mall; for an enthralling experience.

The architectural design concept complements the Masterplan of the integrated Kuala Lumpur Sentral and its ‘live, work, play’ components.

From the artist impression, the sky bridge is fully air-conditioned and an easy access to Nu Sentral.

From above, there is a possibility of new fare gates and paid area will exist in Nu Sentral. The existing paid and unpaid area of the KL Sentral Monorail station is a total mess and is congested during peak hours.

This is an improvement to the integration of stations in KL Sentral and certainly a welcome news as KL Sentral MRT station is under-way.
