Projek Plaza Rakyat dijangka siap 2007

utusan.com.my 11/10/2005


KUALA LUMPUR, 10 Okt. - Projek pembangunan Plaza Rakyat di Jalan Pudu yang dirancang menjadi pusat pengangkutan awam bersepadu di tengah ibu kota dijangka siap pada 2007.

Timbalan Menteri Wilayah Persekutuan Datuk Zulhasnan Rafique berkata kerajaan telah bersetuju melanjutkan kontrak kepada Plaza Rakyat Sdn. Bhd. (PRSB) untuk menyiapkan projek itu sehingga 31 Mei 2007.

PRSB telah diminta untuk menyedia dan mengemukakan jadual kerja sehingga tarikh itu kepada Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) selaku pemaju bersama projek, katanya menjawab soalan Fong Kui Lun (DAP-Bukit Bintang).

Zulhasnan berkata daripada laporan DBKL, projek tersebut telah menunjukkan kemajuan dalam kerja-kerja pembinaan.

Kementerian Wilayah Persekutuan melalui jawatankuasa pemandu kajian projek sentiasa memantau projek terbengkalai termasuk kelewatan projek tersebut, katanya.

Beliau berkata projek itu yang berhampiran stesen bas ekspres dan teksi Puduraya diletakkan di bawah status projek terbengkalai yang diaktifkan semula. - Bernama

Ok, for the requests to have this summarized I did something better I've translated this article, well I'm going to do my best at it anyways, I usually go months on end without using malay, so this is a good exercise to brush up. Just to to give some caution, I have never studied malay or sat for any exam on it. My only knowledge of it is because it is my mother tongue, my first language, its what I used to speak at home.

Project Plaza Rakyat expected to be completed by 2007.

utusan.com.my 11/10/2005

Kuala Lumpur 10th August- The Plaza Rakyat Development project on Jalan Pudu thats planned to be a transportation center in the middle of the capital city is expected to be completed by 2007.

The Federal Territories deputy minister Datuk Zulhasnan Rafique said the government has agreed to renew and start a contract with Plaza Rakyat Sdn. Bhd. (PRSB) to complete the project by 31st May 2007.

PRSB has been asked to be ready and present its working schedule to meet the said date to the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), which is a project joint developer said the minister whilst answering to Fong Kui Lun (M.P. DAP-Bukit Bintang).

Zulhasnan said from the DBKL report, the said project has shown progress in construction work.

The Federal Territories Ministry through its capacity for supervision of projects has always noticed these stalled projects, including late or behind schedule projects like the one mentioned.

He said that the project thats adjacent to the express bus and taxi terminal/station of Puduraya is classified under the status of stalled projects that has been reactivated or revived again. - Bernama


I hope it was a fair attempt at translating the article, for those who have actually studied malay, please correct me on my mistakes.

Greg, kein Problem, Es ist mit Vergnügen. Woher kommst du? Zurich? Oder du wohnst im Zurich? Bist du Schweizerdeutsch? Es tut mir leid, ich habe Langeweile.

musang, thanks for thinking I'm such a dear, though I sense sarcasm and dry wit.

yung85, Killer pics buddy, you really have some nice shots here. Where were you taking these pictures from, Menara Maybank, the LRT station? I like the cranes in the shot.

To everyone, has there been more substantial progress? I can't wait till they build this. Hmmm...
