identified as one of the areas for expansion of the North-South Expressway under the 10th Malaysia Plan.
Malaysian Highway Authority director-general Datuk Ismail Md Salleh said the
Senawang section has been identified as another stretch for expansion.
“The expansion of the North-South Expressway will be implemented over five years,”
he told reporters after the launch of the Touch ’n Go customer service counter at the North Klang Valley Expressway
(NKVE) Petronas station here yesterday. Seven highway projects at an estimated cost of RM19bil are among 52
high-impact projects worth RM63bil to be implemented under the 10MP. Other high-impact projects included two
coal-powered electricity generation plants and 3,300-acre land development in Sungai Buloh.
