Exclusive Sneak Peek of The Duke's Duta Link:
After ten long years in the making, the entire stretch of D.U.K.E. or Duta-Ulu Klang Expressway (Lebuhraya DUKE) is finally ready. It will be opened to the public this Thursday at 6pm (30th April 2009).

With the completion of the Duta Link, motorists can now travel from Ampang or Setapak to Damansara or Petaling Jaya (or vice-versa) without going through congested Jalan Mahameru and Jalan Tun Razak. From both directions, the expressway also connects to the Karak Highway to Genting Highlands and Kuantan.

In this special preview arranged by KESTURI (the highway operator), I drove from the vicinity of Jalan Pahang to the newly completed Duta Interchange. Approaching from the direction of Ampang, the video starts near the turnoff to Karak Link.

Along the way (at 2:00 to 2:52 on the timeline), you will see the costly and complex "Jalan Khalsa Section" where the elevated section (above Jalan Ipoh and Sentul) is shared with TNB reserved land. The highway builder erected special monopoles to replace the conventional pylons.

A new set of bi-directional videos of this stretch will also be available soon to complement the earlier videos:
