The East Klang Valley Expressway, EKVE is a new expressway under construction in Klang Valley, Malaysia. The 39.5-kilometre-long (24.5 mi) expressway will connect Ukay Perdana in Ampang, Selangor and Bandar Sungai Long in Kajang. This expressway is part of the Kuala Lumpur Outer Ring Road (KLORR). The construction of the expressway was started on 1 September 2015.[1] The entire expressway is expected to be completed by 2019.[1] Once completed, the expressway will benefit 140,000 motorists per day.[2]

The phase 1 of the expressway stretches 24.1 km and costs MYR 1.55 billion.[2]

Features

Controversies

  • The phase 1 of the project is heavily criticized due to de-gazetting of 106.6 ha of the Ampang Forest Reserve, a critical source of water for Klang Valley.[3]
  • The phase 2 of the project (from Ukay Perdana to the Kuala Lumpur-Karak Expressway) would have cut through the Ulu Gombak forest reserve. The phase 2 has not been approved due to environmental concerns.[3]
