DENGKIL: The opening of the Gamuda Cove Interchange, estimated at a cost of RM150mil, will provide direct access from the North-South Expressway Central Link (ELITE) Highway into the 1,530-acre Gamuda Cove township. 

The interchange directly leads into the 372-acre commercial business district (CBD) where the new Gamuda Cove Experience Gallery is currently located. Officiated by Works Minister Baru Bian last Friday, the interchange effectively increases the accessibility to the site. 

Stretching approximately 1.6km southbound and 1.1km northbound respectively, the interchange is the first and main access into the Gamuda Cove township and will be the key access point for its future phases. The interchange is equipped with a 12-lane toll plaza, washrooms, prayer room and parking bays for road users’ comfort and convenience. 

The opening of the interchange has also paved the way for the 25mil visitors coming in through the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2), as they can now visit Gamuda Cove’s 50-acre Discovery Park.

The park, slated for opening by end of 2019 is made up of two recreational zones—the Adventure Park and Hangout Village. Visitors can look forward to Malaysia’s first Aerobar, a tethered hot air balloon station, a beach pool club, a Starbucks coffee house, Blastacars Drift Karts’ indoor go-karting and all-terrain vehicle excursions through the woods as well as a community space for art and food enthusiasts named The Hive. 

Next in the pipeline for Gamuda Cove is the water theme park to open by 2021 which will complement the Discovery Park and eco-tourism activities at the adjacent Paya Indah Wetlands. Two additional proposed linkages will connect Gamuda Cove and Cyberjaya via Persiaran Cove Selatan in the future.
