Over a million motorists have used the Latar Expressway since its opening on June 23, thanks to the toll-free experience provided by the concessionaire, KL-Kuala Selangor Expressway Bhd.
Chief executive officer of the company Amran Amir said the expressway had upped commerce, trade and tourism for many in the corridors along the way.
The expressway has been a boon to township development and “opened avenues for easy reach, time-saving and fuel-efficiency benefits,” Amran said in a statement today.
The four toll plazas on the expressway recorded one million users during June 23-July 31. The expressway is toll-free until Aug 31.
It links Kuala Lumpur via Templer’s Park in Gombak district with Ijok in Kuala Selangor via a 33km dual carriageway in a mere 18 minutes.
Latar Expressway also provides ready access to the North-South Expressway, Guthrie Corridor Expressway and the West Coast Highway.
