The Cheras-Kajang Expressway (CKE, E7) is an expressway in Klang Valley that links the incorporated township of Cheras, Kuala Lumpur to the town of Kajang in Selangor, Malaysia. The Cheras-Kajang Expressway is part of a major expansion of Jalan Cheras (Cheras Road), also known as Federal route 1, which consisted of a two-lane intercity road between Kajang and Cheras. Construction of the expressway commenced in late 1998, completed and in operation on January 15, 1999. Having assumed a new name, the “Cheras–Kajang Expressway”, and incorporated the mid-length of the original road into the expressway, the expressway consequently bisected Jalan Cheras into two at both ends of the original road: one at Kajang, and the other at Cheras, while remnants of the road’s undeveloped routes between remain partially in use.
The Cheras–Kajang Expressway is among the first four-lane dual carriageway in Malaysia, stretching from the Connaught Interchange in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur to Saujana Impian in Kajang. The expressway comprises one rest and service area and nine interchanges: “Pasukan Gerakan Am”, “Hulu Langat”, “Telekom”, “Bandar Tun Hussein Onn”, “Balakong”, “Sungai Long”, “Bukit Dukong”, “Sungai Balak” and “Saujana Impian”. The Cheras-Kajang Expressway receives substantial volumes of traffic to and from linked localities.
The Cheras-Kajang Expressway formerly featured its own electronic toll collection system, known as the Saga Tag. Beginning 1 July 2004, however, the Saga Tag was replaced by Touch ‘n Go and Smart TAG systems.
