Construction companies IJM Corp Bhd and Ahmad Zaki Resources Bhd (AZRB) will commence the V5 and V6 package of the Sungai Buloh-Kajang My Rapid Transit (MRT) in the next two weeks.
Both companies will execute their respective packages once all necessary approvals from relevant authorities for the commencement of works are obtained. Both V5 and V6 packages are expected to be completed in 43 months.
“We are happy to be a part of this prestigious project and we are confident in delivering this project as required by the government based on our past experiences and proven track record.
“We laud the government’s efforts to develop the public transportation infrastructure in the Klang Valley as it will bring economic benefits to all Malaysians,” said IJM managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Teh Kean Ming at a media briefing last Friday.
IJM will execute the V5 contract package which consists of the construction and completion of a viaduct guideway and other associated works from Maluri portal to Plaza Phoenix station, a stretch of approximately 5.4km of elevated structures.
The RM974 million package will include four MRT stations namely Bukit Ria, Bukit Mewah Leisure Mall and Phoenix Plaza and construction works will be carried out by its wholly-owned subsidiary, IJM Construction Sdn Bhd.
AZRB will commence the V6 package which entails the construction and completion of elevated viaduct guideway and other related works from Plaza Phoenix to Bandar Tun Hussein Onn station, with a total distance of 5.24km along the Cheras-Kajang highway.
The RM764.9 million V6 contract package will be executed by AZRB’s wholly-owned subsidiary Ahmad Zaki Sdn Bhd, including the construction of three MRT stations namely Taman Suntex, Taman Cuepacs and Bandar Tun Hussein Onn.
According to AZRB managing director Datuk Wan Zakariah Wan Muda, proper project implementation plans are already in place not only to meet requirements of the project owner Mass Rapid Transit Corp Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp) and project delivery partner MMCGamuda KVMRT Sdn Bhd, but also most importantly to address the various concerns raised by the general public particularly on traffic diversions, environmental impacts such as noise and vibrations, and disruptions to the supply of public utilities and services.
Both IJM and AZRB gave assurance that the construction of both packages will adhere to all guidelines and compliance on environment, safety and health quality assurance, quality control and traffic management plans and hope to minimise any disruptions to the general public.
