Bernam Jaya is a new Malaysian township in northern Selangor built by Selangor State Development Corporation (PKNS). The construction was aided by private developers, along the model of the Kota Damansara township. The township, comprising over 800 acres (3.2 km2), is located between Sabak Bernam and Tanjung Malim. The government acquired the land, former palm oil plantations, from private real estate companies in 1997; at a time when much development was focused on the southern part of the country, Selangor's State Development Corporation looked to the northern corridor. The site, close to the North-South Expressway, was intended primarily for employees of the nearby Proton City automotive complex and the Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris.
