After six long years, the Damansara-Shah Alam Elevated Expressway (DASH) is finally open for public use!

Stretching 20.1 kilometres, DASH connects Puncak Perdana to Penchala, connecting the eastern and western townships in the Klang Valley at a cost of RM4.2 billion.

DASH highway has a 3-lane, dual-carriageway design, with each lane 3.5 metres wide, and a 3 metre-wide emergency lane.

Here are the DASH highway toll plazas and interchanges:

  • Puncak Perdana
  • Alam Suria
  • Denai Alam
  • Kampung Mealy Subang
  • Pinggiran Subang
  • Subang Dua
  • Subang Airport
  • RRIM (Kwasa Damansara)
  • Surian
  • Seksyen 5 Kota Damansara
  • Sunway Damansara

It will be monitored by 37 closed-circuit cameras, with 30 vehicle incident detection systems (VIDS). There will also be 18 emergency telephone booths, 10 variable message signs (VMS), as well as 2,441 LED street lights.
