Duta Ulu Klang Expressway Partially Open officially opened to traffic

Two sections of Duta Ulu Klang Expressway is now partially open for motorists to use. The 18km highway, of which 40% is elevated, provides an alternative route through and out of the city as it bypasses many of the roads that are usually congested.
The highway is divided into three sections. Section One from Jalan Duta to Sentul. Section Two from Sentul to Greenwood (near Batu Caves) and Section Three from Sentul to Hillview (Ulu Klang).
Section Two, Section Three and part of Section One of the DUKE being opened with the rest of Section One to be opened in March.
There will be three toll plazas at Batu, Ayer Panas and Sentul Pasar.
The seven elevated interchanges will be at Jalan Duta, Jalan Kuching, Sentul Pasar, Setiawangsa, Hillview, Bandar Dalam and Greenwood.
Works Minister Datuk Mohd Zin Mohamed who officiated the opening of the highway said the DUKE was the vital missing link in the current road network in the Klang Valley and would help ease traffic congestion in the inner city.
“Highway users will be exempted from toll payments for one month. The highway will have an open toll system with 46% of the highway being toll-free.”
The DUKE was expected to cater to some 120,000 vehicles a day and that toll charges would start at RM2 per car and would only be increased after six years.(View Map)
