DEDICATED HIGHWAY, KUALA LUMPUR – PUTRAJAYA – KLIA
The Dedicated Highway initially started as a 42km of expressway that links Kuala Lumpur to the new KL International Airport in Sepang. The Concession Agreement was signed in October 1997 but due to the economic crisis the following year, the project was deferred in December 1998. It was later reactivated in July 2002 and only the 26km stretch between Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya was implemented with the remaining 16km from Putrajaya to KLIA deferred to a later date.
This project, now known as Maju Expressway or MEX involves 5 interchanges and approximately 10km long elevated viaduct through a heavily built-up corridor. HSS was appointed as the detailed design and supervision consultant for this challenging project.
