道路、铁路、机场和港口等交通基础建设发展，向来被人们看作是创造出新产业热点的催化剂，因为这些发展往往会刺激一个地区的经济活动，并且提升当地的宜居程度。 西马其中一个备受瞩目的基建项目，就是即将改变沿途地区的West Coast Expressway（简称WCE），一条连接雪州Banting与霹雳州Taiping的233公里高速大道。 该大道目前正由WCE Holdings Bhd 及IJM Construction私人有限公司所组成的财团所兴建，预计在2022年底全面竣工。 WCE会连接到数条现有大道，包括 North-South Expressway（NSE）、South Klang Valley Expressway（SKVE）、New Klang Valley Expressway（NKVE）、New North Klang Straits Bypass（NNKSB）、Kuala Lumpur-Kuala Selangor Expressway（LATAR）与Shah Alam Expressway（KESAS）。 因此，在WCE启用后，该大道将使沿路地区的交通更加便利。 而有关专家指出，该大道也有望推动西海岸走廊的发展，因为随着来往这些沿岸地区的交通时间缩短，当地的发展料获得加速。 Raine & Horne International Zaki + Partners私人有限公司副总监James Tan向EdgeProp.
