Road quiz: Which is the shortest tolled expressway in Malaysia?

PETALING JAYA: When we think of tolled expressways or highways, we think of long, multi-lane stretches of road.

For example, the North-South Expressway, completed in 1994, connects Bukit Kayu Hitam near Thailand with Johor Baru near Singapore and is 772km long.

Meanwhile, Malaysia's first tolled highway, opened in 1966, is only 20km long. It connects Tanjung Malim Selangor with Slim River Perak.

However, is there an even shorter tolled expressway in the country that is still in use today.

The Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway is only 7.9km long, and it connects Jalan Sultan Ismail in the heart of the city to the suburbs of Taman Ampang Utama. It is also the country's first intra-urban elevated highway.

However, if you count tolled tunnels, the Storm Management Road Tunnel (SMART) is even shorter at only 4km.

It was completed in 2007. It was touted as the world's first dual-function tunnel. It was designed to alleviate traffic and address flash floods in Kuala Lumpur.
