The RM17 million fly over bridge which across the SPRINT Highway has been completed and it connects Jalan Damansara Lama to the Tropicana City Mall. Hence, cars can drive in and drive out to the mall directly and smoothly.
Besides, there is a new second NKVE tunnel being built for the residents of Tropicana Golf & Country Resort and Tropicana Indah. Both first and second tunnels are used to access to and from Tropicana, Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong (LDP), Bandar Utama and Bukit Mayang Mas. The existence of both tunnels definitely has improved the flowing of traffic within this area.
Besides solving the traffic problem, the second tunnel is also found to cope with the flood or stagnant water, as it is built with the anti-flood system. The construction of the second tunnel is using pipes and special drains to disperse the trapped water during the heavy raining. Anyway, this anti-flood system is delayed due to the technical problem relating to the design and building of the tunnel.
