MRT to award 38 contracts by year-end

PETALING JAYA: Mass Rapid Transit Corp Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp) expects to award the remaining 38 contracts worth approximately RM2 billion, by year-end.

Director of Strategic Communications and Public Relations, Amir Mahmood Razak said 47 of the 85 packages worth over RM20 billion had been awarded, with 47 per cent of the projects going to Bumiputera contractors.

“The balance of the projects are not so big, including some system packages,” he told a media briefing on the V2 MRT Viaduct Works from Kota Damansara to Dataran Sunway, today.

When asked about the MRT lines two and three, Amir said the group had yet to be informed of its progress by the government.

“They are still undertaking the feasibility study. I think the plan is to announce the lines at least by the first half of next year.
“If the new lines are to be announced by then, we will be able to award some of the new contracts by end-2013. That would be a fair estimate,” he added. — BERNAMA
