Selangor Journal: WCE’s Tanjong Karang -Assam Jawa section ready by March 2026

KUALA SELANGOR, May 16 — The construction of the Tanjong Karang-Assam Java section in Section 7 of the West Coast Expressway (WCE) has reached 71 per cent and is expected to be completed in March 2026.

Works Minister Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi said the alignment construction, over a total distance of 29.5km, involved two parts, namely Section 7A and Section 7B.

“Construction in Section 7A starts from Assam Java Interchange to Sungai Terap Farm, involving a distance of 19.5 km, while Section 7B from Sg. Terap Farm to Tanjong Karang Interchange is 10 km long.

“As of April, work progress for Section 7A has reached 91 per cent while Section 7B is already at 44 per cent,” he told the press after reviewing the progress of the project’s implementation today.

Nanta said the route’s opening made it easier for users who previously had to travel through traffic jams, especially on weekends and during festive seasons.

When completed, the Section 7 project can save up to an hour’s travel time compared to the existing Federal road, in addition to reducing traffic density on the North-South Highway when users use the alignment as an alternative route.

He added that the government is committed to building comfortable and safe infrastructure and easing the anxiety of people facing severe congestion on the Tanjong Karang-Kuala Selangor route.

“We admit that the soil structure at the construction site is quite soft, which requires reclamation work to be done in stages, but we are confident that it is not a major issue and that the construction can be completed within the specified period,” Nanta said.
