The long awaited link bridge is finally here and it’s more than what we expected!
A new pedestrian bridge, known as the Saloma Link, offers a seamless connection between Kampung Baru and Jalan Ampang, reducing the walking time by approximately 20 minutes. This definitely adds on brownie points for the city of Kuala Lumpur for being a more pedestrian friendly city.
The design of the bridge is inspired by the concept of an integral part of Malay Wedding – sireh junjung (betel nut leaf arrangement). The principal of the Veritas Design Group, Azril Amir Jaafar said that: “ The sireh junjung is among many other Malay-centric design ideas that we proposed to the client”. Besides, the Saloma link bridge is also named after a Malaysian legendary songbird, Salmah Ismail and was a project done by Kampung Baru Development Corporation.
Dah pergi Saloma Link. Laluan dari tepi mamak NZ (kubur Jalan Ampang) ke LRT Kampung Baru.
Surprisingly sepanjang laluan bridge ni terang-benderang. CCTV banyak. Ada guard lalu lalang.
Rasa selamat & tak seram sangat walaupun masa pergi dah nak pukul 12am.

However, the bridge will not be open 24 hours due to the control for act of vandalism.
