SUKE and DASH are 30pc complete, says CEO
SHAH ALAM: The construction of the Sungai Besi-Ulu Kelang Elevated Highway (SUKE) and Damansara-Shah Alam Elevated Expressway (DASH) have reached 30 per cent of their completion targets since they started in 2016.
Projek Lintasan Kota Holdings Sdn Bhd (Prolintas) group chief executive officer Datuk Mohammad Azlan Abdullah said work on both highways were going smoothly.
“The construction of the two highways is expected to be completed by 2020,” he said after the launch of the first duathlon event in the country at the Guthrie Corridor Expressway yesterday.
The programme was officiated by Prolintas group chairman Datin Paduka Jamiah Abdul Hamid.
The cost of building SUKE is RM4.6 billion while DASH is RM4.1 billion.
Upon completion, both highways are expected to reduce traffic congestion in the city, Jalan Sungai Buloh and Damansara.
SUKE is a 24.4km highway with 14 intersections, while DASH is a 20.1km with 13 intersections starting from Puncak Perdana, Section U10 Shah Alam to the Penchala intersection.
Both expressways were built according to the “elevated highway” concept, with three lanes in each direction.
Azlan said his company had no problems with the projects and was hoping that the construction could be completed without a hitch.
