THE much-awaited 40km long
South Klang Valley Expressway
linking Nilai to Pulau
Indah, Port Klang is expected to
Works Minister Datuk Seri S.
Samy Vellu said work on the project
would start after an agreement
between the bankers and the contractors
are signed in mid-February
Samy Vellu however declined to
say how much the cost for the
expressway would be because negotiations
were still ongoing between
the Malaysian Highway Authority
and parties involved.
The expressway stretches from
Pulau Indah in Klang to Nilai and
passes through Pulau Carey, the
North South Central Link Expressway
(Elite) and links up with the
Putrajaya highway at the Kajang interchange.
Samy was speaking at a press conference
after opening Duromac (M)
Sdn Bhd’s new premises at Bandar
Kinrara, Puchong on Monday.

Duromac is involved in supplying
road sweepers for highways and
main roads located in major towns
in the country.
It had been reported last year that
Muhibbah Engineering (M) Bhd had
secured the project to construct the
expressway worth RM1.1bil.
Samy Vellu said machines such as
road sweepers helped to keep
streets and highways cleaner compared
to it being done manually.
He said clean highways bode well
for Malaysia because it is a major
factor in ensuring that tourists continued
visiting the country. “The
cleaner it is, more tourists will
return to visit the country,” he said
