Highway to link Kinrara, Serdang and Putrajaya
Tuesday August 30, 2011

A HIGHWAY linking Kinrara, Serdang and Putrajaya with 
seven interchanges, is in the pipeline.

The 17km Serdang-Kinrara-Putrajaya Expressway (Skip)
 will have three main toll plazas and two on the ramps.

The highway, which starts near the Giant Hypermarket in 
BK 5a in Puchong, will pass by the Ayer Hitam Forest
 Reserve and head towards Taman Lestari Perdana.
 From this point, the highway will be split into two directions.

The first will go through Taman Putra Permai and eventually 
connect the South Klang Valley Expressway.


The second will connect Taman Universiti Indah 
and Sri Sedang and then link to the Besraya Highway.

Its concessionaire and the Malaysian Highway Authority 
briefed the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) last

MPSJ councillor Ng Sze Han said the council welcomed 
the project that would reduce traffic jam in Jalan Besar,
 Serdang, and part of Damansara-Puchong Highway (LDP)
 in front of the IOI Mall in Puchong.

“Motorists from the Sunway toll plaza on the LDP 
can get into Skip near the Giant Hypermarket in Puchong, 
to head towards Putrajaya and Cyberjaya.

“According to the traffic impact assessment, 
the highway will ease the congestion on the LDP in front of
 IOI Mall,” he said.

Also in the pipeline is the Kinrara Damansara Expressway,
 linking Kinrara and Pusat Bandar Damansara, 
which will further reduce congestion on the LDP.

He added that the Skip concessionaire presented
 three alignment options and the council would most likely
 choose the one which would least affect private 
properties, schools and religious sites.

“We have also voiced our concern regarding
 the stretch of Skip near the Ayer Hitam Forest

“We requested them to minimise the impact 
on the ecology by going along the forest border,” he said.

Details on the concession period and
 toll fare are not available yet.

“The construction of the highway 
will start at the end of next year and is 
expected to be completed in 2016,” Ng said.
