Kuala Lumpur, 30 January 2013: In line with its commitment to reach out to the public and raise awareness on the MRT project, Mass Rapid Transit Corporation Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp) in September 2012 initiated the ‘I need MRT because…’ (INMRT) contest. The contest, which requires participants to submit their reasons on why they need the MRT, received close to 9,000 entries and registered more than 100,000 votes on the ‘best reasons’ submitted.
In addition, the three-month online contest saw close to 300,000 visits to the contest microsite– www.mrtmyride.com.my. Speaking at the prize giving dinner at TEEQ Restaurant in Kuala Lumpur today, MRT Corp Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Azhar Abdul Hamid said, “It is comforting to know that the project has the Rakyat’s support and that they are waiting for its completion.
Rest assured that MRT Corp is vigorously working around the clock to deliver this project within the agreed timeline to enhance the productivity and quality of life for residents in the Klang Valley”. Four lucky winners, namely Cik Atiqah Abdul Aziz, Encik Azmil Mohamad, Ms. Tan Eng Yen, and Ms. Tu Sun Ing were rewarded RM25,000 in total for giving their best reasons on why they need the MRT. Cik Atiqah Abdul Aziz, Encik Azmil Mohamad and Ms Tan Eng Yen were the three monthly winners which earned them RM5,000 each.
Ms. Tu Sun Ing, who is the Grand prize winner of the INMRT contest, was delighted that her entry ‘I need MRT because it can take more than 198,000 cars off the road daily’ landed her the RM10,000 grand prize. “I moved from Johor to Kuala Lumpur four years ago and I heavily rely on the public transport here. Although the public infrastructure here is well developed, I still think more can be done to enhance it and no doubt MRT is the answer. Me and my family can’t wait to have the MRT up and running,” said Tan.
Construction on the 51 kilometre MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang (SBK) line is now in full swing and is expected to be completed in 2016, and commence operations in January 2017. Once completed, the MRT SBK Line project will have 31 stations, including 7 underground.
Kuala Lumpur, 14 December 2012: Mass Rapid Transit Corporation Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp) and Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) signed the Electricity Supply Agreement for the construction of the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang (SBK) Line.
Chief Executive Officer of MRT Corp, Dato’ Azhar Abdul Hamid and TNB’s Senior General Manager (Operations – Region 1), Distribution Division, Datuk Ir Mustafa Din signed for their respective organisations in a ceremony at MRT Corp’s Headquarters today.
The Electricity Supply Agreement signed today also provides for the supply of power for the operation of the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line until 2050.
The user connection charge for power supply for both construction and operation is RM173.1 million. This is based on a Special Tariff – Customised Commercial Traction Tariff.
Under the agreement, TNB will be supplying for a maximum demand level of 116.5MW. These will be supplied through seven 33kV Main Switching Substations which will be built at the Sungai Buloh Depot, Taman Industri Sungai Buloh Station, Section 16 Station, Semantan Portal, Cochrane Launch Shaft, Taman Cuepacs Station and Kajang Station.
On top of that, TNB will be constructing two 132/33kV Transmission Main Intakes which will be built at the Semantan Portal and Cochrane Launch Shaft.
Construction is expected to be completed by 31 July 2017.
Power supply for the construction of the MRT is expected to begin by the end of this year while commencement of power supply for MRT operations will coincide with the operationalisation of the first phase of the MRT line from Sungai Buloh to Semantan by 31 December 2016.
Dato’ Azhar thanked TNB for the cordial atmosphere during the negotiations which preceded the inking of the Electricity Supply Agreement. “Such an environment paved the way for a smooth negotiation process which resulted in us signing
this important agreement today,” Dato’Azhar said.
Dato’ Azhar also thanked TNB for agreeing to the Special Tariff for the MRT.
“The MRT is a Government project which is for the benefit of the rakyat. I’m very happy that TNB recognised this and agreed to the Special Tariff for the MRT,” he said.
Datuk Ir Mustafa expressed his appreciation to MRT Corp for working together to achieve the signing of the Electricity Supply Agreement. He said TNB will deliver power supply for the MRT project in accordance with its requirement.
“I understand Phase One for the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line will begin by 31 December 2016 while Phase Two will open in July 2017, allowing the whole line to be operational,” he said.
Datuk Ir Mustafa said TNB was honoured and proud to be able to be part of the MRT project which is a major Government infrastructure project that will benefit the rakyat and boost the nation’s development.
