KUALA LUMPUR, 8TH August 2012 – Come 9th September, Malaysians throughout the nation will unite for the year’s most highly anticipated regional run organized by adidas Malaysia titled the adidas ‘King Of The Road’ (KOTR) 2012. The KOTR Run will take place on a 16.8KM and 10 KM stretch across the New Pantai Highway (NPE) starting and ending at the Sunway Pyramid Shopping Centre.
We can expect 10,000 (vs last year's 7700) runners blazing the NPE Highway for the adidas King Of The Road 2012. :)
adidas Malaysia together with the New Pantai Highway (NPE) will be working closely with the Malaysian Highway Authority (MHA) and Royal Malaysia Police Force (PDRM) from Petaling Jaya, Subang and Kuala Lumpur districts to effectively close off approximately 50 junctions to ensure a smooth and safe run for the participants. The highway will be officially closed to motorists starting from KM0.3 of NPE Highway at Subang Jaya all the way towards Pantai Dalam, Kuala Lumpur in both directions. During the KOTR run, the NPE Traffic Team and the police force will also patrol these areas to further ensure the safety of the runners.
Preparations are underway by the concessionaire New Pantai Expressway Sdn Bhd to alleviate traffic woes as motorists are diverted to other routes. The NPE Highway traffic closures begin from 3.00 am. However, traffic will reopen in full by 11.00 am. All this will happen only on the morning of Sunday, 9th September, 2012.
In a joint statement issued today, adidas Malaysia said, “Alternative routes have been planned for the traffic diversions to facilitate the mobility of the local communities along the NPE Highway. We are working closely with the highway concessionaire and joint-sponsor, as well as with the support from Malaysian Highway Authority (MHA) and the Traffic Division of the Royal Malaysia Police Force (PDRM) to ensure smooth traffic flow.”
