Billboard to nowhere

KL road infrastructure cuts through everything including the outer suburbs. 

Occasionally the elevated highways can look beautiful, the spanning concrete arches catching the early morning light, transforming a banal undercroft into a cathedral aisle.

From a vehicle you get no sense of the drama of these places, the leftovers of city planning. As I tried to walk beside the road to find my way to a park, people watched me suspiciously from their stopped cars at traffic lights, wondering why I was taking taking pictures.
