Highway system

The South Klang Valley Expressway or SKVE E26 is an expressway in the southern part of Klang Valley, Malaysia's most densely populated region. This 51.7 km (32.1 mi) dual-carriageway provides links to the booming towns in southern Klang Valley, including the country's administrative capital, Putrajaya. South Klang Valley Expressway is the fifth east-west-oriented expressway in the Klang Valley after the Federal Highway, the New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE), the Kuala Lumpur-Kuala Selangor Expressway (LATAR) and the Shah Alam Expressway.

Route background[edit]

The Kilometre Zero of the expressway is located right after the Uniten Interchange at the Kajang Dispersal Link Expressway E18.

History[edit]

The first 7.95 km (section 1A) stretch that starts at the UNITEN interchange in Bangi is toll free, and had been open for several years. It was built by the Malaysian Public Works Department (JKR). The section 1B, 2 and 3 stretch of SKVE are to be built by SKVE Holdings Sdn Bhd. The section 1B stretch of the expressway between Cyberjaya to Bandar Saujana Putra was completed in June 2010.

The section 2 stretch of the expressway from Bandar Saujana Putra towards Teluk Panglima Garang measuring 12.96 km long would have been completed in 2011. SKVE’s last stretch is the 18.81 km long section 3 and connects to Pulau Carey before terminating at the Pulau Indah interchange, serving as a direct link between Putrajaya and Westports in Port Klang.[1]

Section 1B of this expressway between Cyberjaya to Bandar Saujana Putra was opened to traffic on 1 July 2010.[2] Meanwhile, the section 2 stretch of the expressway between Bandar Saujana Putra to Teluk Panglima Garang was opened on 29 May 2012 and the final stretch, section 3 of the expressway between Teluk Panglima Garang to Pulau Indah was opened on 1 October 2013.

Features[edit]

A dual carriageway of the South Klang Valley Expressway (SKVE) towards Ayer Hitam toll plaza.
A single carriageway of the South Klang Valley Expressway (SKVE) towards Pulau Indah.

The section between Teluk Panglima Garang towards Pulau Carey and Pulau Indah is built as a two-lane expressway while retaining the full access control, making the section as the first true two-lane expressway with full access control in the Klang Valley and also the second in Malaysia after the Senai-Desaru Expressway (Cahaya Baru - Penawar sections) in Johor Bahru.

There are three main bridge along the expressway, the Jalan Puchong-Sungai Rasau bridge, the Pulau Carey-Sungai Langat bridge and the Selat Lumut-SKVE Bridge. The Selat Lumut-SKVE Bridge is a major landmark of the SKVE.

An Automated Enforcement System (AES) speed camera is located along SKVE near Shell layby, Serdang.

A runaway truck ramp is provided on both ends of the Selat Lumut-SKVE Bridge.

There are two Malaysian Road Transport Department (JPJ) Enforcement Stations at Pulau Carey.

Criticism[edit]

Section 1A of the expressway (toll-free) is currently in a sad state of affairs due to poor maintenance, with most of its street lights not functioning (leaving many dangerous stretches and bends unlit at night) and wrecked guardrails lay unreplaced at accident sites.

Toll systems[edit]

The South Klang Valley Expressway (SKVE) is using the closed toll system.
