The SPRINT highway is short for Sistem Penyuraian Trafik KL Barat which means the Western KL Traffic Dispersal System. As the name implies, it is designed to provide an alternate route in the western region of Kuala Lumpur to avoid the traffic congestion.
The Sprint Expressway is a 26.5-kilometer highway that serves over 7.5 million vehicles covering several high traffic locations of the Klang Valley. SPRINT includes the Kerinchi Link, the Damansara Link and Penchala Link, all of which are connected to provide access for vehicles to avoid the KL traffic crawl, particularly during the daily rush hours.
SPRINT highway is mainly used by urban vehicle owners who use the routes to travel to and from work each day. As it connects Damansara, Kerinchi and Mont Kiara, a large segment of travellers along SPRINT are from the middle to high income groups respectively while it is used by families on weekends to travel to the commercial and entertainment areas of Petaling Jaya.
