Sri Petaling (also known as Bandar Baru Seri Petaling) is a suburb of Kuala Lumpur, in Malaysia. It is located to the south of the city, and located near Happy Garden, Kuchai Lama and Bukit Jalil.
Sri Petaling has easy access to the Government departments in Putrajaya, which is the administrative capital of Malaysia, to Cyberjaya and to Kuala Lumpur International Airport. Sepang International Circuit (venue for the Formula One Malaysian Grand Prix) is only twenty-five minutes away, Kuala Lumpur city centre,Petaling Jaya, Subang Jaya, Damansara and Puchong, is 15 minutes away whereas the Shah Alam is 20 minutes away by modern transport, and the royal town ofKlang is 45 minutes away.
Bandar Baru Seri Petaling was first launched in 1977 and developed in 1981.
This suburb was first developed in 1981; before this, they were rubber plantation estates. From the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s it was widely known as the 'rubbish area' as it was the location of a landfill site. Garbage disposal was discontinued and the land it had occupied turned into a playground and car park area for the1998 Commonwealth Games.
The three areas of Sri Petaling that were first developed for residential use were the area of Jalan Puteri Senggang near the main road, Jalan Wan Empok 1 and Jalan Wan Empok 2. In the 1980s, these districts were the main areas of population in Sri Petaling and the houses were sold for between RM40,000 and RM60,000. By 2010, the value of the houses had increased to RM500,000–RM1,000,000 although the area mostly consists of leasehold titles.
The population in Sri Petaling was not high in the early 1980s as it was relatively distant from the city of Kuala Lumpur and a little isolated. The population grew in the late 1980s when two routes of access were opened to neighbouring suburbs; one to Salak Selatan, also known as Salak South, and another to Taman Gembira, or Happy Garden. Over the course of the next decade, development continued and the population grew. In 1997, the Shah Alam Expressway (KESAS) was opened, allowing people to travel to Subang Jaya in as little as 10 minutes. The opening of the Shah Alam Expressway was one of the reasons for the rapid growth in Sri Petaling. In 2007, Maju Expressway (MEX), a dedicated highway connecting Kuala Lumpur City Center to Putrajaya (national administration city) was opened for commute.
