The 33km dual carriageway expressway is the alternative link road to the present Jalan Sungai Buloh - Kuala Selangor (Federal Road 54). Now opened, LATAR Expressway provides for a faster, safer, smoother and non-congested drive that would take just a brief 18 minutes to accomplish from end-to-end.
Commuters will find easy access, convenience and connectivity to the many communities and townships along the LATAR Expressway.
The LATAR Expressway features six interchanges and six toll plazas on each side of the expressway. The six interchanges give faster and easy access into the existing Guthrie Corridor Expressway, PLUS North-South Expressway and the future West Coast Highway.
