Highway system

North Klang Straits Bypass, Federal Route 20, AH 141, is the main highway bypass to Port Klang in Klang, Selangor, Malaysia.[1] Federal Route 20 became the backbone of the road system linking Sungai Rasau to Port Klang before being surpassed by the New North Klang Straits Bypass 30. Many cargo trucks travel along the highway daily.

Route background[edit]

The Kilometre Zero of the Federal Route 20 starts at Northport Interchange near Port Klang.

History[edit]

The plan to build the bypass to Port Klang began in the late 1970s. Construction began in 1983 and completed on 1 January 1985. Today this highway are maintained by the Lebuhraya Shapadu Sdn Bhd (a member of Shapadu Corporation Sdn Bhd) and Malaysian Public Works Department (JKR). By the 1990s to 2000s, the highway was bogged down with severe congestion, and the present New North Klang Straits Bypass was built to replace it. On 2009, the Port Klang toll plaza was closed and the parts of Jalan Kapar - Port Klang sections became a toll free highway.

In 2014, the expressway was taken over to LGB Group and its name was changed to Grand Sepadu Sdn Bhd.

Features[edit]

  • Two-lane carriageway
  • Emergency lane.
  • Toll.
  • Speed trap.
  • Variable Message Sign (VMS)
  • Many container trucks along this highway.
  • Many kampungs (village) along this highway.
  • Massive accident area along this highway.
  • Many traffic lights along this highway.

At most sections, the Federal Route 20 was built under the JKR R5 road standard, allowing maximum speed limit of up to 90 km/h.
