It completes the Middle Ring Road 2, at the western part of the Klang Valley providing much needed second ring road, which allows you to bypass congested city roads. It does not only alleviate congestion in the city but also allows for greater capacity on the north-south corridor, stretching 40km from Sri Damansara in the south, connecting Petaling Jaya and Puchong. Morever, it links you to Putrajaya, Cyberjaya and the Hicom-Shah Alam industrial area. And for your convenience, the LDP uses an easy-to-remember coded system for entry and exit on the highway. LDP has 4 toll plazas – TP1 (Penchala), TP2 (Petaling Jaya), TP3 (Puchong Barat) and TP4 (Puchong Selatan). LDP also provides kilometer marker on the median for easy reference in time of breakdown and emergency. LDP has brought Klang Valley closer to you, making it more accessible for you to reach the townships, business and finance centers within and beyond the Klang Valley. Further to this, as it opens up new growth areas like Penchala and Puchong, the LDP helps place you on to vast growth opportunities.
The Concession Company for LDP Project is Lingkaran Trans Kota Sdn Bhd (LITRAK). On 23 April 1996, the Concession Agreement was signed between the Government of Malaysia and LITRAK for the privatisation of the improvement, upgrading, design, construction, maintenance, operations and management of LDP. The LDP was constructed over a period of 28 month’s i.e. from September 1996 to December 1998. The work was awarded on a turnkey basis (i.e. design and construct) to Gamuda – Irama Duta Joint Venture (GIDJV) at a cost of RM 1.1 billion. The overall cost for LDP is RM 1.4 billon. With the completion of the LDP, the MRR2 is substantially completed on the west of Kuala Lumpur which provides for free flow and ease congestion. It also links Bandar Sunway to Puchong, which has been long awaited, and traveling time is shortened between Petaling Jaya and Puchong. The LDP connects the Putrajaya and Hicom/Shah Alam with MRR2.
