The South Klang Valley Expressway, SKVE, (E26) is a toll expressway in the southern part of the Klang Valley. It runs in a east-west direction over a distance of 52.6 km starting in Kajang in the east, where it links to the SILK Expressway (E18). The first phase of the expressway was completed in 2000. It ends at the SKVE Interchange with the Damansara Puchong Expressway, LDP, (E11), and the Putrajaya-Cyberjaya Expressway (B15).
The second phase, which was opened to the public on 29 June 2010, continues from there through the Saujana Putra Interchange on the ELITE Highway (E6) to Pulau Indah.
This is a cloverleaf interchange connecting to the Damansara-Puchong Expressway, LDP (E11) from the north. You exit north to go to Puchong, Shah Alam, Petaling jaya, Damansara and Kepong. Exiting south takes you to State Route B15, which is a western approach to Putrajaya.
The SKVE's Phase 1B interpretation has been toleratee-->totald and is due for an official opening by Works Minister Datuk Shaziman Abu Mansor at the Saujana Putra interchange this coming Tuesday (29 June 2010).
The 52km SKVE Expressway when fully toleratee-->totald will provide a direct linkage from the south to the gateway of Port Klang and is set to boost new growth areas for residential and industrial sectors within the Southern areas of Klang Valley, said SKVE Holdings Sdn Bhd's Chief Executive Officer Teoh Ah Guan.
n conjunction with the opening of the expressway (partly), a toll-free period for all motorists traveling on the SKVE for a period of one month will be effective.
SKVE starts at the Universiti Tenaga Nasional (combineN) in Bangi and ends at the proposed Pulau Indah Ring passage which links to the Westport in Klang. Those who would superiority from the SKVE highway are public commuters, commerce people and traders traveling between Klang, Westport and Shah Alam and Putrajaya and Cyberjaya.

ETS Ticketing office and Rail Cafe at Kuala Lumpur railway station
TRANSIT has found out that the Electric Train Service (ETS) between Kuala Lumpur and Ipoh is likely to start operations on 12 August 2010.
The main ticketing offices for the ETS as well as the “Railcafe” lounges will be located at the Kuala Lumpur and Ipoh railway stations. There will also be a ticketing office at KL Sentral railway station.
The ETS will operate two services – an Express service (in red on the route map below) stopping at a limited number of stations, and a Transit service (blue hexagon on the route map below) that stops at all stations between Rawang and Ipoh.
It is expected that the fare will be RM30-35 for the express service, with a lower fare for the Transit service. We at TRANSIT find this interesting, because the KLIA Express Rail Link also charges RM35 for a trip (whether Express or Transit) but the trip to KLIA is far shorter than the trip to Ipoh. We hope that the RM30-35 fare will allow KTM to make a reasonable return on the cost of the ETS operations. And perhaps we should be seeing a reduction in the fare of the KLIA Express (or at least the KLIA transit) service.
Rail commuters will be able to travel from here to Ipoh in less than three hours when Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) introduces its inter-city express train service (ETS) from April 1.The premium service, which will among others have wi-fi services, will only stop at major stations along the way.
KTMB introduced the normal Kuala Lumpur-Ipoh shuttle service beginning December last year. The journey between Kuala Lumpur and Ipoh takes about three hours.
It is understood that the ETS will, among others, stop at the Nilai/KLIA, Bandar Tasek Selatan, KL Sentral, Tg Malim, Tapah, Kampar and Batu Gajah stations.
With the ETS, the travelling time from Seremban to Kuala Lumpur will be 45 minutes while the KL-Ipoh route will take about two hours and 10 minutes.
The source said the new train set will look like an upgraded version of the present KTM Komuter trains.
The source said since it was a premium service, commuters must be prepared to pay more to travel on the train.
“This is a departure from the old mode of rail travel.
“We want commuters to feel even more comfortable and to be able to do work while in the train,” he said, adding that the proposed fare had yet to be approved by the Transport Ministry.
It is understood that the service will begin at 5am with the last being at 10pm at two-hour intervals.
Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) offer a fixed promotion train ticket at RM30 one-way for the Kuala Lumpur-Ipoh trip until February for Malaysian celebrating Aidilfitri, Deepavali, Christmas and Chinese New Year in Ipoh who the Electric Train Service (ETS) as an alternative mode of transport from Kuala Lumpur Sentral Station. After the promotion period ends, the ticket would be sell at RM45.40 one-way and discounts would be given to senior citizens, children, the disabled and government retirees.
