New RM1.16bil expressway project to start next month


KUALA LUMPUR: After being familiar with such names as NKVE, SPRINT and MRR2, motorists in the Klang Valley will have another expressway.

The planned Duta-Ulu Klang Expressway, DUKE in short, will be the “missing link” in the traffic dispersal masterplan of this metropolis of 4.5 million people, who make an estimated 2.1 million vehicle trips daily.

The concession of the 18km expressway, estimated to cost RM1.16bil, has been awarded to Konsortium Lebuhraya Utara Timur (KL) Sdn Bhd (Kesturi) and is due to begin next month.

It is scheduled to be completed in three years, project director Chua Soo Kok said here yesterday.

Chua added that the expressway would begin from the NKVE in Jalan Duta and end at the MRR2 in Jalan Ulu Kelang,

Along the way it will cross Jalan Segambut, Jalan Kuching, Jalan Ipoh, Jalan Sentul, Jalan Pahang, Jalan Air Jerneh (Setapak), Jalan Semarak and Jalan Setiawangsa.

Kesturi signed the 34-year concession with the Government in August last year. It is a joint venture between Wira Kristal Sdn Bhd and Malaysian Resources Corporation Bhd (MRCB).

The expressway, with seven elevated interchanges, will have three toll plazas but the good news for motorists is that 46% of the route will be toll-free.

Some 30% of DUKE will be elevated expressway built on 20% private land and the rest government land.

Chua said the project is like killing two birds with one stone.

“Besides filling the 'missing link' that is a vital east-west route for the northern Kuala Lumpur region to allow traffic to bypass the city centre, it will resettle some 1,000 squatter families along the way.”

He said the relocation of the squatters was due to start this month and go on until June and Kesturi would pay compensation to them for moving into three-room Kuala Kumpur City Hall flats all over the city. – Bernama

Nope..it will not cross Seri Maya..;)

Part of the highway will cut cross Desa Tun Hussien Onn n Taman Setiawangsa. Both of the side already been cleared for the construction of the highway somewhere last year...

For anyone who happen to have a map of KL, like the one Sze has, then there is a rendering of the proposed DUKE highway...

So good, I think they might have another intersection nearby Jalan Jelatak...:D

For schematic diagram of location and interchange:

For rough map of DUKE:

A lot of misplaced labels (i.e. Bandar Dalam, Karak, Greenwood area marked as "Wangsa Maju", Jalan Jelatek towards Taman Sri Rampai marked as "Jalan Setiawangsa 8") but it should give you a rough idea. :)
