WCE will have interchange/exits connecting to SKVE, KESAS, Federal and also NKVE if I'm not wrong but the alignment of the highway is a lot closer to Klang than it is to PJ/KL.
So even if u use the WCE interchange to come out to Kesas/Federal/NKVE during peak hours, it wouldn't bring much benefits to go PJ/KL/Puchong because there's still a lot of jam to go through on those 3 highways. Can use SKVE to go south side of Puchong though but don't really know traffic conditions there.
Whether it reduces travel duration or not....it depends on the time of day and where in KL/PJ the person is heading to.
WCE will just provide residents here with extra alternative routes.
WCE will act as an alternative North South aligned highway from the congested ELITE highway.
It may reduce the existing congestion at ELITE by dispersing North and south bound traffic.
It also provides an alternative for connecting to KESAS if there is a major traffic jam at Kota Kemuning exit, Bukit Rimau exit or Jalan Kebun exit to KESAS.
It also provides an alternative route to PJ e.g. WCE->Federal Highway-> PJ or WCE -> NKVE-> PJU
It also provides an alternative route to KL e.g. WCE -> SKVE -> Jalan Putra Permai -> MEX highway
(SKVE is currently congestion free and one don't have to pass through Bandar Saujana Putra roundabout)
It also provides an alternative route to KLIA e.g. WCE -> route 31 and 32 -> KLIA
Who knows in the distance future WCE may be extended all the way to Port Dickson, Melaka etc.
In my opinion, I think a bridge to connect Kota Kemuning to Putra Heights will further open up this location to LRT accessibility on top of the existing Johan Setia LRT station that is under construction
Overall, it is good to have many alternatives to improve the accessibility of this location.
