A Sad Day - DEIA for EKVE is Approved By DOE

TrEES has received official confirmation from Department of Environment that the DEIA for the EKVE was approved on 25 April 2013. Under the approval, only part of the originally proposed expressway has been approved as Phase 1, from CH0.000 to CH24000.00, 24.16 km in length, starting Sungai Long interchange to Ukay Perdana interchange.

It is deeply disappointing that the proposed EKVE is progressing ahead, despite the widespread public protest on the project and its negative impacts on an environmentally sensitive area that is critically important to Selangor, KL and Putrajaya.
