Expressway to boost Selangor’s economy

SHAH ALAM: The 233km West Coast Expressway (WCE) from Taiping to Banting in Selangor will boost economic development in the northern region of Selangor.

Selangor Mentri Besar Amirudin Shari (pic), who announced this, said more vehicles were expected to use the expressway and this would spur economic activity.

He said the relevant state exco members would be asked to look for ways to further boost development along the highway.

Amirudin said this in reply to a supplementary question from Ahmad Mustain Othman (PKR-Sabak), who wanted to know the state government’s allocation to Sabak Bernam, at the Selangor Legislative Assembly meeting yesterday.

The MB said it would be unfair for any party to accuse the state government of not developing areas along the highway.

“Previously, there were local firms which built factories in the areas but no one was interested to invest.

“However, we still have downstream economic activities which we plan to focus on.

“It will involve areas such as Kuala Selangor, Tanjong Karang and Sabak Bernam, ” he added. — Bernama.
