MRT project: Priority must be for local workers
D.S., Sungai Buloh, Selangor 2010/11/25
http://www.nst.com.my/nst/articles/20mrt/Article/

THE construction of the mass rapid transit (MRT) hub announced by the prime minister during the 2011 Budget is definitely welcomed by the public. What more when the project is expected to generate economic growth in areas that will eventually be served by the MRT.

The recent announcement by Land Transport Commission chairman Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar (NST, Nov 20), that up to 130,000 jobs would be created over the 10-year construction period is welcome news for the thousands of jobless Malaysians.

However, it remains to be seen if these jobs will be given to Malay-sians.

As the project is construction-based and labour intensive, I believe the jobs will eventually go to migrant workers, as is the trend in Malaysia.

Developers and contractors shun Malaysians simply because it is much cheaper to employ foreigners.

But if the government is serious about creating jobs for Malaysians, then it has to put in place the right mechanism to achieve this objective.

Therefore, the commission must ensure that Malaysians are given priority for employment by the contractors.

The 4,000 jobs to be created for the maintenance and operations of the planned stations should also go to Malaysians.

LRT extension jobs to be awarded soon
By Yong Yen Nie Friday, 26 November 2010 15:34
http://www.theedgeproperty.com/news-...rded-soon.html

KUALA LUMPUR: The government is expected to award the jobs for the long-awaited light rail transit (LRT) extension project soon, and successful bidders have been short-listed, sources said.

According to a source familiar with the matter, parties that had lobbied for the LRT extension jobs for the Ampang and Kelana Jaya lines include UEM Group, IJM Corp Bhd, Bina Puri Holdings Bhd and TRC Synergies Bhd.

The contracts to be awarded will be for the building of LRT stations, laying groundwork and alignment before constructing the railway. The total extension length of the Kelana Jaya line is 17km and for the Ampang line 17.7km. Both extensions will see an additional 13 stations each.

It is learnt that Bina Puri is in the forefront to win the LRT extension job for the Ampang line worth about RM600 million.

Bina Puri has won several jobs of late, including the construction of a RM9 million hospital in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, and more significantly, the RM997 million contract to develop the main buildings at the proposed new low-cost carrier terminal in Sepang.

Bina Puri will develop a portion of the LCCT via a joint venture with UEM Construction Sdn Bhd, a unit of the UEM Group.

Meanwhile, TRC is tipped to bag the main contract for the Kelana Jaya line extension, estimated to be worth between RM900 million and RM1 billion, a source said.

"UEM Builders Intria Bina Sdn Bhd (UEM Builders), a wholly-owned unit of the UEM Group, is believed to be eyeing the job as well, but is not likely to get it," the source said.

UEM Builders is wholly-owned by UEM Group, which in turn is wholly-owned by government investment arm Khazanah Nasional Bhd.

Both TRC Synergy and UEM Builders are understood to be in the last lap of bagging the contract, but sources said Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd, which is in charge of the country's strategic planning for public transport, had recommended TRC Synergy to the Ministry of Finance to be the main contractor for the LRT extension project.

Despite Prasarana's preference for TRC, it is said that UEM Builders was lobbying hard for the job.

The LRT extension is one of the government's major infrastructure projects under the Economic Transformation Programme. The proposed Kelana Jaya LRT line extension will commence from Lembah Subang-Kelana Business Centre, through Subang, USJ, Alam Megah and end at the hub in Putra Heights.

Meanwhile, the proposed Ampang LRT extension line will commence from the present Sri Petaling station, pass through Puchong, Kinrara and end at the hub in Putra Heights.

It is believed that construction on the extensions is slated to commence by the end of this year.

The first phase, or Package A, of both Kelana Jaya and Ampang lines will see 9.2km and 7.39km of construction length respectively.

SPNB awards RM1.7bil jobs for LRT extension
Saturday November 27, 2010
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...7&sec=business

PETALING JAYA: Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd (SPNB) has awarded contracts worth RM1.7bil for the first phase (Package A) of the RM7bil light rail transit (LRT) extension project involving the Kelana Jaya and Ampang lines.

In a statement yesterday, SPNB, which was established by the Finance Ministry to facilitate, undertake and expedite infrastructure projects for the Government, said the main contractor facilities job for Package A of the Kelana Jaya line, valued at RM950mil, was awarded to Trans Resources Corp Bhd. The work will take 30 months to complete.

UEM Builders Bhd and Intria Bina Sdn Bhd were jointly appointed the nominated sub-contractors for the fabrication and delivery of segmental box girder jobs worth RM93.16mil, which is expected to take 21 months to complete.

Package A of the Kelana Jaya line will be a 9.2km extension from the Kelana Jaya station to Summit (Station 7). Package B will involve a 7.8km extension from Station 7 to the Putra Heights station.

Meanwhile, the main contractor facilities job for Package A of the Ampang line was jointly awarded to Bina Puri Holdings Bhd and Tim Sekata. Valued at RM634.64mil, the work will take 27 months to complete.

Bina Puri and Tim Sekata were also jointly appointed the nominated sub-contractors for the fabrication and delivery of segmental box girder jobs, which is valued at RM67.70mil and expected to take 19 months to complete.

Package A of the Ampang line will be a new 7.4km stretch from the Seri Petaling station to Station No. 5, while Package B will see a 10.3km extension from Station No. 5 to the Putra Heights Station.

SPNB said recipients of the main contractor facilities jobs would be responsible for all guideway sub-structure and main structure works, foundation work for stations and traction power sub-stations (TPSS), to launch and install segmental box girders and to supply and install parapets and noise barriers.

In addition, within the total contract value, the main contractors will also manage the nominated sub-contractors for contracts worth RM469mil (Kelana Jaya line) and RM305mil (Ampang line).

SPNB said the selection of the contractors was done through an open-tender process starting from November 2009. A total of 119 applications were received, but one was rejected due to failure to comply with application guidelines.

The tender for the facilities works under Package B for both lines will be called upon approval of the final railway scheme, which is expected by mid-2011.

With the appointment of the main contractors, it is expected that work on the line extension projects will start as soon as possible, SPNB said.

PDP approach for MRT project?
Written by Jose Barrock Thursday, 02 December 2010 12:36
http://www.theedgemalaysia.com/highl...t-project.html

KUALA LUMPUR: The proposals for the RM36 billion Kuala Lumpur mass rapid transit (MRT) system are likely to be discussed by the Cabinet within the next few weeks, sources told Th e Edge Financial Daily.

It is understood that salient features being discussed include the appointment of a project delivery partner (PDP) — a project manager to head the construction project. Th e PDP, if appointed, will work with an independent consultant and a government body to ensure the entire project is completed on time and within budget.

A federal government unit, the Land Public Transport Commission or Suruhanjaya Pengangkutan Awam Darat (SPAD), is likely to be given the mandate to oversee the entire construction project. SPAD was formed in June this year.

The sources say the PDP will be more than a project manager. The PDP will be responsible to the government for delivering the project within the agreed target cost and completion date.

Th e sources say that the PDP will be responsible for procurement and coordinating with many diff erent contractors for the various aspects of the project.

“The PDP will have the requisite balance-sheet strength to take on the risks of cost overruns and delays. This expertise could reduce the cost for the government,” said a source. The PDP approach was used in the US$12 billion (RM37.9 billion)

Crossrail project to build new railway connections under London, with the PDP being a team comprising Bechtel, Halcrow, and Systra.

Bechtel Corp is an engineering, construction and project management company; the Halcrow group deals in planning, design and management while the Systra group has expertise in urban transportation systems.

Bechtel is also currently partnering Hyundai Corp as the PDP for the US$16 billion (RM50.6 billion) Korea High Speed rail project, as well as the PDP for the US$11 billion Channel Tunnel Rail Link in the UK. Other notable PDP jobs include the US$6 billion Qatar Bahrain Causeway, where the PDP is Vinci of France.

On the local front, prominent projects where a PDP was appointed include the Express Rail Link, with the YTL Group as the PDP, and the Ipoh to Padang Besar double-tracking project, with the Gamuda Bhd-MMC Corp Bhd joint-venture being the PDP.

“Once the necessary people sign off, it will be given to the Cabinet to deliberate. The government wants to take the delivery risk out of the MRT, and ensure that there will be accountability for delays and other such issues. The PDP will be the single point of accountability, and will assume responsibility for the delivery within the agreed time and cost, or face financial penalties.

“An engineering consultant would not have the financial capability to assume such a role,” a source familiar with the plan said.

The PDP’s fees are tied to the performance of the project in the event there are cost overruns, or savings, early completion or delays.

While the PDP plan is being ironed out, sources say there are other proposals on the table apart from the one from the Gamuda-MMC Corp joint venture.

They include the Light Rail Transit 3 plan, with a proposal for another line stretching from Kota Damansara to the city centre.

Although unconfirmed as yet, the UEM Group may also have joined the fray. In July, UEM’s group CEO Datuk Izzaddin Idris had said that the company was keen on bidding.

“There is no reason not to bid,” he had told a local daily.

Nevertheless the Gamuda-MMC JV seems to be a frontrunner to build the MRT. The Gamuda-MMC JV is understood to be proposing a track of almost 150km, with about 40km running underground, and almost 100 stations.

According to the source, the headline numbers indicate that the price per kilometre for the underground portion is in the region of RM360 million per kilometre, which is considerably lower than the cost of other similar systems regionally.

The National Economic Council was given a presentation on Monday, and will be handing the papers over to the Cabinet after due deliberation. The NEC, which is chaired by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak who is also finance minister, comprises 12 members, including senior Cabinet ministers. The council deliberated on the proposals on Monday.

If the Gamuda-MMC JV wins the MRT development contract, sources say it seems likely that the duo will undertake some the underground tunnelling work, worth some RM14 billion, while the remaining portions will be left to competitive bidding.

TRC nominated as main contractor for Kelana Jaya LRT
By Bernama Wednesday, 01 December 2010 19:35

KUALA LUMPUR: TRC Synergy Bhd's construction arm Trans Resources Sdn Bhd has been nominated as the main contractor for the RM950 million first phase of the Kelana Jaya Light Rail Transit line extension project.

The 9.2km extension project from Kelana Jaya Station to the Summit Shopping Centre in Subang will include construction of all guideway substructure and main structure works, foundation works for the stations and traction power sub-stations, launching and installing the segmental box girders and supplying and installing parapets and noise barriers.

The project is to be completed within 30 months, said executive chairman Datuk Seri Sufri Mohd Zin in a statement on Wednesday, Dec 1.

He said TRC's orderbook swelled to RM1.2 billion with secured project.

Over the last three years, Sufri said TRC has completed several major projects, notably the RM411 million submarine base at Sepangar Bay in Sabah, the RM401 million runway extension (Package 3 and Package 4) at Terengganu Airport and RM125 million Dang Wangi district police headquarters.

"Leveraging on our government's commitment to execute initiatives under the Economic Transformation Programme, God willing, we are confident of our prospects in securing more orders in the near future," Sufri added.

This project will positively impact the group's financial performance over the next three years, he added. — Bernama

RapidKL women-only buses on trial run
Friday December 3, 2010
http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...47&sec=central

Women’s groups have welcomed the move by RapidKL to introduce women-only buses but stressed that more needs to be done to tackle sexual harassment at its roots.

They also commented that this should only be a temporary measure to send out the right message to the masses.

“What is worrying is that there may be separate queues, shops, cinemas and other public space for men and women in the future,” said Women’s Aid Organisation (WAO) executive director Ivy Josiah.

“This may also lead one to think that separating women from men is the way to stop sexual harassment.

“What we need is an overall mindset change,” she said, adding that the women-only buses should only be an option and not be made compulsory.

All Women’s Action Society (AWAM) senior programme officer Abigail de Vries also commented that the service would not tackle the problem of sexual harassment at the roots.

“We understand the need for a women’s only bus service as women face harassment in public transport daily.

“But this service does not solve the problem of harassment.

“It is not a magic bullet. Until men and society at large learn to respect women and treat them accordingly, sexual harassment will continue,” she said.

Rapid KL has launched a trial run for the first women-only bus service to promote women’s health and safety.

The Rapid Lady Bus service for seven routes with high passenger volume began on Dec 1 and will end on Dec 31.

There are two bus services at 6.45am and 7.30am and at 6pm and 6.45pm daily.

The seven bus routes for the morning service are Pinggiran Batu Caves, Damansara Damai, Sri Nilam, Terminal Kajang, Puchong Utama, UiTM Shah Alam and Subang Suria.

The evening service goes to Medan Pasar, Jalan Hang Lekiu and Pasar Seni.

RapidKL Bus chief operating officer Datuk Mohamed Hazlan Mohamed Hussain said the service was aimed at providing more comfort and security for women, protecting them from sexual harassment and save them from jostling with men during peak hours.

“This is based on feedback received from our customers, especially women, on the discomfort they face using our services during peak hours,” he said.

Mohamed Hazlan said the service would not affect current bus services as it would use additional buses.

Prasarana group managing director Shahril Mokhtar said the latest initiative by RapidKL’s Bus Group was one of the measures under the Prasarana Going Forward Plan (GFP).

Even though the bus service is only for women, boys aged below 12 are allowed when they are accompanied by female companions or relatives.

A “women-only” label will be placed on the buses’ windshield, window, doorway and on the LED screen in the buses.

A survey will be conducted during the trial run to gather feedback to further improve the service.

The tender for the facilities works under Package B for both the Kelana Jaya and Ampang lines would be called upon approval of the final railway scheme, which is expected by mid-2011. — AFP
PETALING JAYA: Although the contract awards for the first phase (Package A) of the light rail transit (LRT) extension project have eluded the big construction players, the big boys will have another chance to bid for phase two (Package B), which is estimated to be worth about RM1.7bil, by the middle of next year.

On Nov 26, Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd (SPNB) awarded contracts worth RM1.7bil for Package A of the RM7bil LRT extension project involving the Kelana Jaya and Ampang lines.

The main contract of Package A of the Kelana Jaya line, valued at RM950mil, was awarded to Trans Resources Corp Sdn Bhd (TRC). UEM Builders Bhd and Intria Bina Sdn Bhd jointly won the sub-contract works worth RM93.2mil.

For the Package A Ampang line extension project, Bina Puri Holdings Bhd and Tim Sekata were jointly awarded the main contract and sub-contract works worth RM634.6mil and RM67.7mil respectively.

Rail project: MMC, Gamuda, Govt to team up
Published: 2010/12/09
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

Gamuda Bhd and MMC Corp, two Malaysian construction companies, may team up with the government to help build a passenger rail network in Kuala Lumpur, a Gamuda executive said.

Work on the project may start in July, Gamuda group managing director Lin Yun Ling told reporters in Shah Alam, near the capital. He didn’t elaborate.

The rail project is among the US$444 billion of private sector-led projects identified by the Malaysian government to spur investments and accelerate growth in Southeast Asia’s third-largest economy. Besides the rail network, the plan includes developing a nuclear energy industry and a shopping district to rival Singapore’s Orchard Road.

Shares of Gamuda, a construction and property group based in Petaling Jaya, outside the Malaysian capital, climbed 1.6 per cent to RM3.83 at 11:45 a.m. in Kuala Lumpur trading. MMC, a power and construction company based in Kuala Lumpur, slid as much as 1.1 per cent to RM2.79.

Gamuda and MMC, which proposed the mass-transit system, will likely be the master planners of the project if they offer the best pricing, Second Finance Minister Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah said Nov. 11.

Gamuda expects nod soon for RM36bil joint MRT project
By SHARIDAN M. ALI Friday December 10, 2010
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...7&sec=business

SHAH ALAM: The Cabinet has yet to approve the Gamuda Bhd-MMC Corp Bhd joint development proposal for the mass rapid transit (MRT) system, said Gamuda group managing director Datuk Lin Yun Ling.

However, he expects the proposal, which was submitted early this year, to be approved soon.

Possibly, the Gamuda-MMC joint venture will be the project delivery partner of the Government.

Via this, the Government can have the cake and eat it while on one hand, they can transfer the project's delivery performance to the partner and at the same time, they can have the entire project packaged out via competitive tenders, Lin said after Gamuda AGM yesterday.

The savings from competitive tenders will go to the Government and if we are allowed to bid for the underground part, we will be more than happy.

Lin believed that the MRT project, estimated to be worth RM36bil, would start next July.

He said even after Cabinet approval, the project would have to go through several processes before construction work could begin.

The Government will have to decide on the network scheme, allignment of railway lines and location of stations through Public Land Transport Commission and Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd.

The Government will also have to get the feedback from the public and other stakeholders before it starts the project, he said.

On the extension of Ampang and Kelana Jaya LRT lines, Lin said Gamuda may bid for it if the MRT project did not go ahead.

Lin said Gamuda was also eyeing the MRT or metro system project worth US$45bil in Qatar.

Qatar will host 2022 World Cup and one the key infrastructures to be built could be the underground metro system in Doha.

We already have a good track record in the Middle East and I think we are well-positioned to be part of it, he said.

Lin said Gamuda expected sales from its property development to hit RM5bil over the next two years.

He said the group's property arm, Gamuda Land, was embarking on a high-growth phase with a priority to sell down its land bank innovatively.

Of the projected RM5bil sales, RM2bil is expected to come from our local projects and the remainder from our activities in Vietnam.

This year, we are achieving a record-high of RM1bil in property sales and currently, our unbilled sales stand at RM800mil, he said.

On the recent merger proposals by some property players, Lin said it was not really a concern for Gamuda as each group would have their own strategies.
