As reported by Malay Mail, Datuk Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan elaborated that DBKL is planning to execute the plan on a few roads in Bangsar, Brickfields and Bukit Bintang. He said,

“We will be revisiting Jalan TAR’s trial run that was suspended last year. Our vision is to see it connected to Jalan Raja until the intersection at Leboh Pasar Besar.”
