Summary

Kuala Lumpur-Karak Highway (KLK)

The Kuala Lumpur-Karak Highway (KLK) incorporates a twin tunnel at Genting Sempah, near one of Malaysia's famous highland resorts, Genting Highlands.

In 1997, it was upgraded to a full expressway - a dual-carriageway with 6 lanes (3 at each direction) from Kuala Lumpur to Genting Highlands exit and 4 lanes (2 at each direction) for the rest of the expressway.

The expressway is part of the Asian Highway Network of route AH141 and the speed limit on the expressway is 90 km/h (56 mph).

Even though the expressways officially begins at Gombak North Interchange in Gombak, Selangor and its interchange with the Kuala Lumpur Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2) (Federal Route 28), the Kilometre Zero is actually counted from the Kuala Lumpur city centre via Federal Route 2 (Kuala Lumpur Middle Ring Road 1, Jalan Pahang (Genting Klang-Pahang Highway), Jalan Gombak (Federal Route 68), Jalan Kampung Bandar Dalam and Duta-Ulu Kelang Expressway DUKE); the actual starting point of the expressway is counted as Kilometre 19.

Next, the expressway passes the Titiwangsa Range and the Genting Sempah Tunnel towards the Genting Sempah at Pahang border.

The section between Bentong and Karak is the sole route from Kuala Lumpur to Kuantan and vice versa, as Jalan Gombak (Federal Route 68) which serves as the toll-free alternative for the expressway ends at Ketari, Bentong.

At Karak Interchange, the expressway diverts the section to Karak to continue as Federal Route 2 while the expressway itself continues as the East Coast Expressway.
