SUKE, DASH Highways To Open By 2020

Pavither 26 Feb 2019


Two major highway projects costing billions of ringgit are expected to be completed by the end of 2019, benefiting real estate developments within their vicinity.

These consists of the 20.1km-long Damansara-Shah Alam Highway (DASH) and Sungai Besi-Ulu Kelang Expressway (SUKE), which spans 24.4 kilometres. The former costs RM4.1 billion to construct, while expenses for the latter amounts to RM4.6 billion.

At present, both major roads are 52 percent complete and they are anticipated to open by mid-2020, said Datuk Mohammad Azlan Abdullah, Group CEO of Projek Lintasan Kota Holdings (Prolintas).

“Once operational, the highways will ease traffic congestion in the area. Indirectly, it would also help to stimulate the economy along the highway corridor,” he told The Star on Friday (22 Feb).

Notably, DASH will interconnect major roads – the Penchala Link, Damansara Puchong Highway (LDP) and New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE) – with the Guthrie Corridor Expressway (GCE).

Consequently, DASH is anticipated to reduce traffic jams in Sg Buloh, Shah Alam, Damansara, Bandar Utama and Kota Damansara.

On the other hand, the three-lane SUKE extends from Sri Petaling and runs through Kajang, Cheras, Alam Damai, and Sungai Besi until Ulu Kelang.
