Speed up work on West Coast Expressway

LETTERS: Residents of Banting and Kuala Langat district hope that construction of the West Coast Expressway (WCE) will be expedited to ease congestion on the narrow Banting-Dengkil road.

The opening of the expressway. which spans 233km between Banting and Taiping. will ease traffic jams.

A couple of years ago, there was hectic construction at the Jalan Banting-Dengkil terminus of the WCE, with earthworks, the building of ramps and a bridge.

However, there is hardly any construction now as the highway concessionaire is possibly concentrating on other sections of the expressway.
