DASH will be the main connector between the Guthrie Corridor Expressway (GCE), the New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE), the Damansara Puchong Highway (LDP) and the Penchala Link. As the connecting expressway between all these major roads, DASH will ease traffic congestions in the areas of Shah Alam, Sg Buloh, Damansara, Kota Damansara and Bandar Utama.
DASH is the ideal link that will bring about convenience, savings in petrol and reducing vehicular wear and tear, as well as allow users to create better quality of living that does not include being stuck in traffic for long hours.
DASH will be constructed for two main reasons:
- To address the high rate of development along the Shah Alam/Batu Arang corridor that calls for additional road capacity. This includes the new areas of development in Sungai Buloh as well as the move to expand the capacity of Subang Airport by 2015.
- The construction of DASH will also address the traffic needs of the future. With DASH, the traffic volume will be reduced on Jalan Sg Buloh by 33%, on Persiaran Surian by 43% and on Jalan Batu Arang by 39%.

Homeowners near construction sites can do a few things to reduce the level of noise and the impact of dust on their homes. This includes keeping their windows closed as much as possible, washing porches to reduce the amount of dust entering the home, adhering to all safety regulations posted by the construction site, and using masks and other forms of nasal protection where necessary. Overall, keep to a regular cleaning schedule at home to ensure the health of your family members is maintained.
While every precaution will be taken on the construction sites to reduce noise pollution, residents can employ ear plugs, keep their doors and windows closed during periods of heavy construction and keep away from activities near heavy machinery.
Residents can rest assured that the health and safety on all construction sites will be maintained at the highest level.
The DOE will monitor the constructions impact on the environment at scheduled intervals.
