Bandar Saujana Putra is a township in Tanjung Dua Belas sub-district, Kuala Langat District, Selangor, Malaysia. It is located south of Putra Heights, UEP Subang Jaya and Puchong, along the North–South Expressway Central Link. Cyberjaya, Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) are to the east and south, and Jenjarom and Teluk Panglima Garang to the west.

This township is under the administration of the Kuala Langat Municipal Council (MPKL) unlike its closest neighbors, Putra Heights and Kampung Bukit Lanchong which are under the jurisdiction of the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) and Taman Mas / Taman Putra Prima / Taman Putra Perdana, Puchong which is under the jurisdiction of the Sepang Municipal Council (MPSepang).

Location, Area Description and Demographic[edit]

Bandar Saujana Putra is an 850 acres township developed by LBS Bina Berhad in 2003. It is estimated that 20,000 residents live in the township following the completion of 6,000 units.

Saujana Business Park, BSP Village and Saujana Avenue are the only commercial developments that have many amenities to serve the residents of Bandar Saujana Putra, while hospitals, hypermarkets and shopping malls are currently under construction. The latest commercial development in the area is Main Place in USJ 21, UEP Subang Jaya. There are more shopping options in adjacent townships like USJ, Putra Heights, Cyberjaya and Puchong.

It is only a mere 35 minutes ride to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport from Bandar Saujana Putra. Putra Heights / Alam Megah (Shah Alam) is just one exit away on the ELITE expressway and it is only a 12 to 15 km ride to major townships such as Puchong, UEP Subang Jaya (USJ), Cyberjaya, as well as the federal administrative capital of Putrajaya.

However, due to long delay of flyover construction and single access road, this township experienced heavy traffic jams during peak hours from 6:30am-9:00am and 5:00pm-7:30pm. There were plans in 2017 for a flyover to be built but due to disagreements between the developers - the proposal has been delayed until 2019.

On 12 April 2019, after the intervention of the Selangor Mentri Besar, Amirudin Shari residents of Bandar Saujana Putra are able to breathe a sigh of relief after their plight to ease the traffic congestion have been considered - a proposed flyover between the South Central Highway (Elite) and the South Klang Valley Expressway (SKVE) will be constructed in the Q3 of 2019. The construction of the flyover was signed by Seribu Baiduri Sdn Bhd (LBS Bina Group Berhad) with Permodalan Negeri Selangor Berhad (PNSB). Seribu Baiduri had submitted approval for the flyover construction approval to the Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM). As a result of discussions between both parties, the developer has finally made a commitment to hasten the tender process to implement the flyover.

As of 2019, Bandar Saujana Putra consists of 13,000 housing units with a density of 65,000 people.

Schools and universities[edit]

MAHSA International School and MAHSA University is the only school serving in this township. However, there are nearby schools and universities in Puchong, Shah Alam, UEP Subang Jaya, Kuala Langat, Putra Heights, Putrajaya and Cyberjaya, a 15 to 20 minute drive from the township.

Bandar Saujana Putra is central and connects to other major cities in the Klang Valley through the four major expressways – namely North–South Expressway Central Link (ELITE), South Klang Valley Expressway (SKVE), Shah Alam Expressway (KESAS) and Damansara–Puchong Expressway (LDP). The Maju Expressway (MEX) towards Seri Kembangan and Kuala Lumpur is just one exit away on the ELITE expressway.

A new road construction is under way that will connect directly to Kota Kemuning, Shah Alam, the KESAS highway and the Federal Highway between Klang and Kuala Lumpur.[1]

Jalan Kampung Lombong (near MAHSA University) connects from Bandar Saujana Putra towards Section 29 and 30, Shah Alam, Koi Prima Condominiums and Taman Mas, Puchong. This road can be used as a transit route for Puchong residents, who are heading towards ELITE or SKVE expressways.
