The road passing the two towns namely Sungei Way and Petaling Jaya.

History[edit]

The Kuala Lumpur–Klang Highway FT2 was opened to traffic on 14 January 1959.[1] The highway was intended as a replacement of the existing road system known as Jalan Klang Lama, Persiaran Selangor, Jalan Sungai Rasau and Jalan Batu Tiga Lama, allowing speeds of up to 60 mph.[2] As a result, Jalan Klang Lama was downgraded into Selangor State Road B14.[3] The Kuala Lumpur–Klang Highway FT2 was later being upgraded into a controlled-access highway by replacing the former at-grade intersection with grade-separated interchanges, making the highway as the nation's first controlled-access expressway.[4] The upgraded controlled-access highway is now known as the Federal Highway Route 2.
