I love how Malaysian motorways look aesthetically. From what I see in photos and from what I have seen in person on E2 from Jahor Bahru to KL Malaysia has some of the best-looking motorways anywhere I've been to.

Directions: From the Kg Pandan Roundabout Interchange to the Putrajaya Link Interchange, the new KL-Putrajaya Highway spans 26 km, with the journey taking only 20 minutes as advertised.

There are five entry/exit points:
• Kg Pandan Roundabout Interchange with entry (just after SMART Tunnel entrance) and exit
• Salak South (Selatan) Interchange with entry via East West Link
• Kuchai Lama Interchange with entry and exit into NPE/ Sg Besi Road to Jalan Tun Razak / Mahameru
• Bukit Jalil Interchange with entry and exit near Endah Parade, Sri Petaling (Kesas Highway to MRR2)
• Putrajaya Link Interchange with entry and exit on the Putrajaya Link near LimKokWing in Cyberjaya.

Contrary to popular belief, the highway does not exit in Putrajaya but at Cyberjaya. It also does not take you to KLIA or LCCT directly. You would need to turn right at the Putrajaya Exit, follow the Putrajaya Link to join the existing North South Central Link (Elite Highway from Shah Alam) to get to the airport. This stretch alone is another 30 km and should take at least another 30 minutes or more.

Video: On The MEX: Driving From KL To Putrajaya | Driving From Putrajaya To KL

Info / Insights: This new highway is long overdue. Would have been perfect for the 1998 Commonwealth Games, with its convenient exit at near the Bukit Jalil Sports Complex. It also makes KLites wonder why they were forced through the Kajang and Shah Alam routes to get to Putrajaya for so long. Only consolation may be the location of Nasi Beriani Gam on the old route

The toll plaza at the Putrajaya side is built on a raised area and hidden from both directions until very close. Nevertheless, the upward slopes may be a clever (reverse) design in reaction to the crazy, descending approach of the killer Jelapang Toll Plaza. A couple of relatively sharp bends along the highway should test the daredevil skills of local motorists.

There are R & R facilities on both southbound (15km from KL Toll Plaza) and northbound (6km from Putrajaya Toll Plaza). The proximity of the rest areas (almost opposite each other) may see silly Malaysians dashing across busy traffic to look for alternative food on the other side. Another highway operator found this out the hard way and have since sited their opposite-facing eateries further apart.

Toll booths are located at 3.5 km from the Kg Pandan entry, just after crossing the Kerayong River and 700m before the Putrajaya Link Interchange. The highway which opened on 13th December 2007 was toll-free for about a month.

Toll collection started on 17/01/08 with the following toll rates:
Updates: The highway is now known as MEX - Maju Expressway

At the KL (Salak Selatan) toll plaza: RM1.50 for cars, RM 3.00 for small lorries, RM 4.50 for big lorries, RM 80 sen for taxis & RM1.50 for buses.

At the Putrajaya toll plaza: RM 2.50 for cars, RM 5.00 for small lorries, RM 7.50 for big lorries,
RM 1.30 for taxis and RM 2.50 for buses.


In other words, it means RM 4.00 for a one-way trip to Putrajaya or RM 1.50 to Bukit Jalil by car from KL (Kg Pandan Entry). For those proceeding to KLIA, LCCT or Sepang Circuit, there is another toll charge of RM 4.30 (for cars) at the KLIA Toll Plaza. Upon exiting the KL-Putrajaya Highway, you will encounter another toll gate after driving 5.5 km, just before joining the PLUS ELITE Highway. The distance between this toll booth (which is also named Putrajaya Toll) and the KLIA Toll Plaza is 13.3 km. From there it is another 11.3 km to KLIA or 18.7 km to LCC-T.

The total toll charges incurred for a trip to Sepang Airport is RM 8.30 for a traveling distance of 44.8 km between Kg Pandan roundabout and KLIA Toll. In comparison, the toll rate from Sg Besi Toll to KLIA Toll via KL-Seremban Highway (44.9 km) is currently RM 7.70. From Jalan Duta Toll via NKVE (58.6 km), the journey will cost RM 9.10 in toll fare.

Malaysian Skyscraper..

what i mean toll free becoz the expressway is under construction and not opening yet. off course if completed there are toll charge. the motorist illegally use the strecth between bukit besi interchange up north to felda jerangau barat (around 20 km +-/in middle between ajil and bukit besi interchange) . the car i guess is local felda folks that coming home town during hari raya. Myself just ride motorbike during that day..

It's a very distressful feeling to see all these pictures of infrastructural development, realizing the event is happening in West Malaysia while the East Malaysian state would never be able to enjoy the comfort of driving on multiple-lanes dual-carriage highway.

The prime minister said we don't need this kind of infrastructure because of lesser cars on the road. The national infrastructural planning unit reasoned that we have a different master plan.

The incumbents claim that they are proactive, in this way of defining - when the road is becoming overly congested (what, 5 years from now?), so then the proposal is to be laid on the board. Or if we have the master plan ready on the table, they would say funding is not available due to greater allocation on some other grand plans.

... depression ....
