In the words of Pontian Salted Fish - " Are there no vacant land in Malaysia, that they(gov) insist on building the Mara Medical University on that site? Is that the policy of our government, to destroy what used to be good, beautiful and functional? "

Make a trip there this weekend. The location is very near to the new Sungai Buloh Hospital, will furnish the necessary details soon...

Some location guidance -

Easiest way - The fastest way is of course through the NKVE...it will bring you straight to the front of the Hospital Sungai Buloh...

Other route -

Map A
Please note that the Star in the middle of the Map is the Kommuter station. The path to follow is the Jalan Hospital. If you are coming from Kota Damansara, then you should be coming from the Jln Sungai Buloh Baru Tiga. The Jalan Sungai Buloh - Kuala Selangor is basically moving towards Kepong to the Right of the map, and Sungai Buloh Town to the left.

Map B

Map C
The road to follow is the road to Pusat Kusta. In other words, we need to get to the back of the Komuter Station.

Hope this helps.
