Setia Eco Templer in Rawang has opened its interchange yesterday, providing improved connectivity to its township and city centre for up to 20,000 residents in that locale.
“With all S P Setia developments, it has always been our commitment to provide the infrastructure and amenities needed to ensure connectivity and fulfil our residents’ lifestyle requirements,” said President and CEO Dato’ Khor Chap Jen.
“I am pleased with the property developers’ efforts in developing areas under the administration of Selayang such as the Setia Eco Templer township, which is a development that is set to become a landmark and focus point, therefore, making [Setia Eco] Templer the chosen location to live in,” said Selayang Municipal Council Yang Dipertua Tuan Haji Shamsul Shahril Badliza bin Mohd Noor.
Setia Eco Templer Interchange with its starting point from Persiaran Eco Templer measures at 450m, providing road users a shorter route to Jalan Rawang.
This will benefit residents living within a 10km radius, as it provides a smoother connection to major highways including Kuala Lumpur-Kuala Selangor Expressway (LATAR), Guthrie Corridor Expressway and New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE).
With the new interchange, road users from Setia Eco Templer can now enjoy shorter travel distances and reduced travel time to Kuala Lumpur City Centre, Selayang, Kepong and Rawang old town.
The interchange will also benefit road users from nearby neighbourhoods such as Institut Kraf Negara, Taman Templer Bestari, Taman Templer Impian, Taman Templer Saujana, Templer Baiduri and Templer Suasana.
Setia Eco Templer’s commercial area The Grove is expected to see higher traffic and crowd flow as the public can now travel to shop offices and amenities with ease via the interchange.
