How do I get from Seremban to Kuala Lumpur?
For commuters who are travelling from Seremban to the Kuala Lumpur Central Business District, the Besraya Highway provides a stress-free alternative to the KL-Seremban Highway. This is especially true during peak hours where traffic remains congested in front of the TUDM Airbase towards Jalan Istana and Jalan Tun Razak.
The first step is to enter the Besraya Highway through the UPM Interchange from either Kajang or KL-Seremban. Then all it takes is to simply follow the Highway all the way to the Istana Interchange. Along the way, you will pass through the Mines North, Mines South and Salak Jaya Toll Plazas. However, we believe that our journey will benefit you in other ways - through savings in travel time, petrol and vehicle maintenance. Fundamentally, a smooth traffic flow ensures peace of mind and allows you to reach your destination safely.

What is the Besraya Highway also known as?
The Besraya Highway is also called the Lebuhraya Sungai Besi or Sungai Besi Highway. However, due to its close proximity to the PLUS (North South Expressway) Sungai Besi Toll Plaza, we at Besraya have chosen the name Besraya Highway to help users differentiate the two. In fact, Lebuhraya Sungai Besi is the name gazetted by the Government and the Malaysian Highway Authority for the Besraya Highway.
How many toll plazas are there along the Besraya Highway?
There are three toll plazas along the Besraya Highway. They are:
- Mines South Toll Plaza
- Mines North Toll Plaza
- Salak Jaya Toll Plaza
However, in terms of directional tolling, a user traveling from one end of the highway to another will pass by two toll plazas. This is because both Mines South and Mines North are single directional plazas. Mines South tolls traffic heading South towards UPM, Seremban while Mines North tolls traffic heading North towards the city centre. The Salak Jaya Toll Plaza is the only two-directional tolling plaza on the Besraya Highway.
How many interchanges are located along the Besraya Highway?
There are 10 interchanges spread along the Besraya Highway. These interchanges are designed to ensure smooth traffic flow along our main line while providing access and connectivity to other areas in our surroundings.
