The LATAR Expressway forms the
North West portion of the Malaysian Governmentís bigger plan for a
KL Outer Ring Road (KLORR) which begins from the Templerís Park
Interchange along Federal Route 1 (KL-Rawang) to the Guthrie
KLORR is a planned orbital ring road within the greater Kuala Lumpur
area as an alternative to the present congested Middle Ring Road 2
Currently, the completed sections of KLORR include the Guthrie
Corridor Expressway linking to Elite Expressway from Bukit Jelutong,
Shah Alam to Saujana Putra, and the South Klang Valley Expressway
from Saujana Putra to Kajang. In addition KLORR connects Kajang to
Hulu Langat via the SILK Highway.
With the impending completion of LATAR Expressway, 75% of the KLORR
network would be formed leading to the Governmentís greater vision
for traffic dispersal that reduces congestion in Kuala Lumpur city.
