Highway system

The Kuala Lumpur – Kuala Selangor Expressway (Malay: Lebuhraya Kuala Lumpur – Kuala Selangor), KLS (formerly Ijok-Templer Park Highway (Malay: Lebuhraya Ijok-Taman Templer), LATAR) or sometimes called LATAR Expressway (Malay: Lebuhraya LATAR), E25, is an expressway in Selangor, Malaysia. It is part of the Kuala Lumpur Outer Ring Road. The 32 km (20 mi) expressway connects Ijok near Kuala Selangor to Templer's Park near Rawang and not Kuala Lumpur as its name suggests - consequently, motorists will need to travel another 20 km to Kuala Lumpur via Kuala Lumpur-Rawang Highway. Kuala Lumpur – Kuala Selangor Expressway is the fourth east-west-oriented expressway in the Klang Valley after the Federal Highway, the New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE) and the Shah Alam Expressway.

Route background[edit]

The Kilometre Zero of the expressway is located at Ijok.

History[edit]

Previously, the Federal Route 54 was the only gateway to Kuala Selangor, with a typical journey of 1 hours. The Kuala Lumpur – Kuala Selangor Expressway project was awarded to Bina Puri Holdings Berhad for contract amounting to MYR 958 million. The turnkey contractor for this project was Mudajaya Corporation Berhad. The construction is divided into two packages, package 1 of the proposed design-and-build contract is from Ijok to Kundang, while package 2 is from Kundang to Templer's Park. Construction work was started in the third quarter 2008 and was completed in the middle of 2011. The expressway was opened to traffic on 23 June 2011.[1]
