Section 6 Of The West Coast Expressway Opens – Remains Toll Free Till January 2, 2024
The Malaysian Highway Authority has officially declared the commencement of operations for Section 6 of the West Coast Expressway (WCE), starting November 21, 2023, at 12:01 a.m. Alongside this announcement, the Minister of Works, Dato Sri Alexander Nanta Linggi, has granted toll payment exemption for users, effective midnight tonight until January 2, 2024.
Spanning from the North Bukit Raja Interchange to the Assam Jawa Interchange, Section 6 of the WCE establishes a direct link connecting Kapar to Assam Jawa. This newly opened stretch is expected to notably slash travel time, offering a quick 15-minute journey compared to the current route, which takes 45 minutes.
An important aspect of Section 6 is its direct connection to the LATAR Highway, enhancing overall connectivity within the highway networks for user convenience. This development is anticipated to ease travel and accessibility between different locations.
Additionally, this upgraded connectivity enables easier access to popular tourist destinations like the Batu Arang Heritage Town, Bukit Malawati, Sky Mirror, and the Firefly Park in Kampung Kuantan. Such improvements are predicted to boost the socio-economic growth of the local community by fostering tourism and accessibility.
Before the opening of Section 6, four other segments of the WCE were inaugurated, covering three sections in Perak—Section 8 (Hutan Melintang – Teluk Intan), Section 9 (Lekir – Changkat Chermin), and Section 10 (Changkat Chermin – Beruas)—and one section in Selangor, Section 5 (South Bukit Raja – North Bukit Raja).
With the completion of Section 6 and its strategic connections, the West Coast Expressway is poised to deliver improved transportation efficiency and convenience for commuters, solidifying its vital role in the region's transportation infrastructure.
