North-South Expressway Northern Route

North-South Expressway (NSE) Northern Route, is the northern part of Malaysia's longest expressway, the North-South Expressway. It is situated on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia, linking the northern states of Kedah, Penang, Perak and Selangor.

Termini

The NSE Northern Route begins at the Malaysian-Thai Border (the town of Bukit Kayu Hitam in Kedah state) in the north, where it connects to the Phetkasem highway () in Thailand. Its southern terminus is at the Bukit Lanjan exit in Selangor.

Landmarks

Its main landmarks include the Penang Bridge which is Malaysia's longest bridge, Sungai Perak Bridge (Jambatan Sultan Azlan Shah) and the Menora Tunnel.

Current developments

Non-stop straight route (Jelapang-Ipoh Selatan)

The Jelapang and Ipoh Selatan toll plazas will be demolished in 2008 to make a non-stop route across Ipoh. The decision to demolish both toll plazas was made as a result of accidents which happened at Jelapang toll plaza. Since the toll plaza was opened in 28 September 1987, there were many accident cases which involved brake failure in heavy vehicles due to hard braking when proceeding downhill to the toll plaza. On 7 June 2008, the new Ipoh North toll plaza (South bound) replacing old Jelapang toll plaza opened to traffic, followed by north bound on 15 August 2008.

In order to achieve non-stop travel for non-Ipoh residents while retaining the Jelapang-Ipoh South toll-free section for Ipoh residents, two collector lanes per carriageway is currently under construction. Two toll plazas are built for each collector road, namely the Ipoh South toll plaza (both bounds), Jelapang toll plaza (north bound) and Ipoh North toll plaza (south bound). Motorists will pay the toll at one of these toll plazas at the beginning of the collector road to exit the expressway via one of the interchanges in Ipoh.

Six-lane widening works

Phase 1: Rawang-Tanjung Malim

The 6-lane stretch which is currently running from Kuala Lumpur (including New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE)) to Rawang Interchange will be expanded to Tanjung Malim Interchange .

Phase 2: Tanjung Malim-Slim River

Meanwhile, in the next phase of these works, the 6-lane stretch will be expanded from Tanjung Malim Interchange to Slim River Interchange .
