The Seri Kembangan Interchange on the KM16.5 of Kuala Lumpur-Putrajaya Highway (MEX) will be opened beginning this Sunday December 13.
There will be a trial period without toll for a month and the actual toll rate will be decided by the Ministry of Works (JKR) later.
Works Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof said the project costed RM112 million and was fully borne by the operator Maju Expressway Sdn Bhd while RM20 million land was spent on acquisition of the land by the government.
The interchange, which provides entrance from Jalan Putra Permai allows users to go to Putrajaya through MEX. This will help many people who are living inside Seri Kembangan to get faster access to Kuala Lumpur and reduces severe traffic congestion around that area.
For Cyberjaya folks, this means they can go to Seri Kembangan via this interchange instead of the 16 Sierra exit on LDP which is always congested during peak hours.
It was initially scheduled to be opened by November 30th but the date was pushed back probably for additional safety checks.
Please come back to check for the toll rate once it’s been decided by JKR.
