When the opening stages of the North-South Expressway on 1994. The new expressway bypass for the North-South Expressway in the Klang Valley was announced. Construction started on March 1994 and was completed on August 1997. The Section 1 of the North–South Expressway Central Link from Shah Alam Interchange (NKVE) to USJ (Hicom East) Interchange was opened on June 1996. On October 1997, all of the sections in the North–South Expressway Central Link and KLIA Expressway opened to traffic. When the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) was opened on 27 June 1998, it became a main route to the airport replacing the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Subang. The Putrajaya Link which was connected to Putrajaya was opened in 2000.

The Expressway is divided into three sections as follows :

  • Section 1 of the Expressway, which extends from the Shah Alam Interchange (NKVE) to the USJ (Hicom East) Interchange, inclusive of the ramps in (Ebor North) and out (Ebor South) connecting the Expressway to the Jalan Subang-Batu Tiga 3214.
  • Section 2 which extends from just South of the USJ Interchange to the Nilai (North) Interchange and includes that part of the KLIA Expressway up to the bridge crossing Sg. Langat.
