PETALING JAYA: The KL-Kuala Selangor Expressway (LATAR Expressway) project, which links Templer’s Park, Gombak, with Ijok,

Kuala Selangor, is almost completed, possibly to be opened by the middle of this year..

The 33km dual carriageway expressway will be the alternative link road to the present Jalan Sungai Buloh–Kuala Selangor (Federal Road 54) route.

Concessionaire KL-Kuala Selangor Expressway Bhd (KLSEB) said in a statement yesterday that the LATAR Expressway features four interchanges and three toll plazas on each side of the expressway.

It links areas such as Kuala Selangor, Assam Jawa, Ijok, Batang Berjuntai, Kota Puteri, Puncak Alam, Shah Alam, Bukit Jelutong, Sungai Buloh, Kundang, Rawang and Selayang.

A non-congested drive on the expressway is said to take 18 minutes from end-to-end.

Construction of the LATAR Expressway began in October 2008, with the concession awarded to KLSEB for a period of 40 years.
