Gamuda may bid for Johor project
By OOI TEE CHING Published: 2012/12/07
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz2FHkeb5n6



GEMAS-JB ELECTRIC DOUBLE TRACK: Shareholders voice need to top up RM4b orderbook, says CEO

GAMUDA Bhd may bid for the construction of the Gemas-Johor Baru electrified double-tracking project (EDTP), said group managing director Datuk Lin Yun Ling.

"Currently, our orderbook is just over RM4 billion. Shareholders have voiced out the need to top up this figure," he said.

"We may bid for the Gemas-Johor Baru project," he told reporters after the company's annual general meeting held here yesterday.

Currently, Gamuda is the joint-venture partner in the ongoing upgrading of the RM12.5 billion Ipoh-Padang Besar EDTP link that spans across 329km. The railway project, which began in January 2008, is expected to be completed by the end of 2014.

The Seremban-Gemas segment of the electric double-track project costing RM3.45 billion, over a distance of 98.2km, was being built by Ircon International Ltd, a subsidiary of Indian Railway.

The 200km Gemas-Johor Baru is the last stretch of the EDTP which when fully completed will see electrified double-tracked line running the length of Peninsular Malaysia between Johor Baru in the south to Padang Besar in the north.


Meanwhile, in recent weeks, filings to the stock exchange showed Lin had increased his stake in the company from 1.7 per cent to 3.25 per cent. When asked if he would continue to buy more, he replied: "It seems that shareholders, institutional and fund managers feel better if I hold more shares."

Yesterday, Gamuda shares traded unchanged to close at RM3.57. In the past, the company's Gamuda shares have typically been trading at a price-to-earnings ratio of some 20 times. At its current price, it is trading at 11 times.

In view of an apparent trend of government-linked companies taking control of their rivals, market talk is rife that Gamuda could be the next acquisition target. Asked if he is aware of such rumours, Lin replied: "I have never heard about this rumour. Good la ... then my company's share price can go up."

Late 2010, government-linked company UEM Land Holdings Bhd made a RM1.4 billion takeover of smaller rival Sunrise Bhd while in 2011, government-linked company Sime Darby Bhd bought a 30 per cent stake in property developer Eastern & Oriental Bhd for RM766 million.

Earlier this year, Permodalan Nasional Bhd took control of property developer SP Setia Bhd and in May 1Malaysia Development Bhd bought Tanjong plc's power assets for RM8.5 billion.

To another query if he's seeking employment contract renewal with the company next year, Lin replied: "It's up to the board of directors to decide. If they renew my contract, there won't be a succession plan."

MRT news

MRT project on track
From: The Star Online, December 27, 2012

PETALING JAYA: The first line of the Klang Valley mass rapid transit (MRT) system, the Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line, is expected to make solid progress next year, said Mass Rapid Transit Corp Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp) chief executive Datuk Azhar Abdul Hamid.

It was reported that about 3% of construction works had been completed as at Dec 18.

“Land issues are mostly resolved. However, there are still a few more to be managed, and tunneling should start toward the second quarter of next year, as we expect tunnel boring machines to arrive in Malaysia in the next quarter.

“Ultimately, work is on track and the delivery date of MRT Line 1 remains at July 2017,” he told StarBiz.

Line 1, which connects Sungai Buloh to Kajang via a track that runs through the city centre, is made up of two phases.

The first phase is from Sungai Buloh to Semantan, while the second is from Kajang to Taman Maluri.

It is expected that the first phase would be operational by December 2016, and the second by June 2017.

MRT Corp has been awarding tenders for MRT Line 1 since the fourth quarter of last year. To date, it has awarded almost RM20bil worth of advance, civil and systems works.

There are about 20 more tender packages to be awarded, and in total, the balance of the award should not exceed RM3bil, bringing the construction cost of the MRT Line 1 to about RM23bil.

MRT Corp has awarded a total of 54 packages worth RM20bil out of 85 packages.

At RM23bil, the price tag for MRT Line 1 was still well within the budget set by the Government, partly supported by the reduction in land acquisition costs.

It was reported in July 2011, quoting the Land Public Transport Commission, that the estimated cost for the first line would be around RM20bil.

On the participation of bumiputra contractors, the value of contracts awarded to date against the total awarded stood at 45%.

Where land acquisition cost is concerned, it was reported that RM1.2bil had been paid out to landowners in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.

Lines 2 and 3 of the massive project are currently under the final planning and evaluation stage by the Land Public Transport Commission. The Government is expected to announce the alignment and station locations next year.

ERL extension

ERL extension on track to KLIA2
From: http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...821&sec=nation (The Star Online)
November 7, 2012


Almost there: Syed Hamid (left) inspecting the ERL line extension project during a site visit to KLIA2. Accompanying him are Noormah and Azmi. Almost there: Syed Hamid (left) inspecting the ERL line extension project during a site visit to KLIA2. Accompanying him are Noormah and Azmi.

SEPANG: Work to extend the Express Rail Link (ERL) to the new Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (KLIA2) is on target and is expected to be completed by the end of March, said ERL Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Noormah Mohd Noor.

She said as at October, work to extend the line and services from the KL International Airport (KLIA) to KLIA2 was 73% complete.

The project, which began in July last year, involves a 2.14km line extension.

Commercial services are expected to commence on May 1 to coincide with the opening of the new terminal.

“The work is on track and everything is progressing well. The track is 95% complete,” she said at a press conference after a site visit to KLIA2 yesterday by Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) chairman Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar.

Also present were Malaysia Airports Bhd senior general manager Datuk Azmi Murad and ERL Maintenance Support Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Thomas Baake.

Passengers travelling from KL Sentral to KLIA via ERL's high-speed train (KLIA Ekspres) and its commuter service (KLIA Transit) would not incur additional cost if they chose to extend their route to KLIA2.

“However, those shuttling between terminals would have to pay RM2,” Noormah said.

Works, she added, were also underway to create a common platform at both terminals for KLIA Ekspres and KLIA Transit passengers for better convenience.

“The journey from KL Sentral to KLIA2 will take 33 minutes via the express train and 39 minutes with the commuter service.

“The new line extension is expected to increase our ridership by 40%,” she said, adding that their total passenger load for this year was about 5.3 million.

The ERL station at KLIA2 will be located within the terminal's integrated complex and includes, among others, a 230m-long platform, escalators, boarding and exit gates and a concourse area with ticketing and operational offices.

These three places should have double-tracked by now, we have seen trains going over new tracks, three stations, particularly the Nibong Tebal railway station, should be nearing completion.

P.S.
Last Saturday, I've travelled onboard ETS from KL to Ipoh and back, and I found it very nice to sit , and this is gonna look great on my record...when we get a hold of the completed Electrified Double Track from Ipoh to Butterworth and all the way to Padang Besar

From KLSE.I3Investor.com:

Construction Sector - MRCB in RM3bil Serendah-Port Klang rail link bid? OVERWEIGHT

The Edge Weekly has reported that MRCB has emerged as a front-runner for the Serendah-Port Klang railway link. MRCB has submitted a bid together with DMIA Sdn Bhd, amid reports that the federal government is planning to revive the line. While there will likely be competing bids in the coming weeks, the weekly revealed that MRCB could clinch the job next year.

This Serendah-Port Klang rail link is seen as a solution to ease congestion within the KL Sentral area. We have learnt that the plan has received the backing of key government ministries ' and is due to be submitted to SPAD as early as next month.

Back in 2008, the federal government had directed Keratapi Tanah Melayu Bhd (KTMB) to carry out preliminary engineering and route alignment studies for the planned Serendah-Port KlangSeremban route. But there has been little headway since then, prompting some proposals by the private sector to undertake the project instead.

The link is one of two routes that KTMB is mulling over under its freight relief line plan to divert freight trains to Port Klang away from KL and the Klang branch. The other is a new SubangSg.Buloh link that passes through Subang Aiport before connecting to the main line.

Interestingly, the local press had reported last November that the federal government had given Subang Skypark the nod to implement a RM1.5bil-link that connects the SAAS Subang Airport to the KTMB station in Subang. The project ' to be implemented under a PrivateFinancing Initiative (PFI) under the government's Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) ' would be further extended to the Sg.Buloh KTMB station and the Sg.Buloh-Kajang MRT system within three years.

MRCB is no stranger to rail-based projects in Malaysia ' having been the principal driver behind the KL and Penang Sentral projects. MRCB is also currently involved in the construction of both the Ampang and Kelana Jaya LRT extension programme.

Established in 1996, DMIA is a registered PKK Class A and CIDB G7 contractor. The group has interest in construction, property as well as quarry operations. Some of the key projects that the group has completed included the ELITE highway (Package 1), Inland Revenue Board building and several Indian highways (e.g. Jaipur-Mahua, Rajashtan).

In terms of rail works, DMIA was involved in the South Port-West Port link (Pulau Indah, Klang) and Ipoh-Rawang double tracking civil works. Importantly, DMIA has worked together with MRCB on the beautification and upgrading of Little India in Jalan Tun Sambathan, besides other development agendas within the Brickfield suburbs.

Apart from MRCB, we do not discount the possibility of seeing opportunities opening up for other Malaysian contractors with prior railway works expertise. We count Gamuda, IJM and Loh & Loh to be within this select group. While we are doubtful if a concrete solution can be reached in the near term, this project adds to the possibility of renewed order book opportunities for Malaysian contractors (e.g. MRT 2 & 3, Langat 2, Seremban-JB double tracking, Menara Warisan, KLIFD) post the 13th General Election.

MRCB: Penang Sentral to take off in 2013
Business Times, November 26, 2012
By Sharen Kaur

MALAYSIAN Resources Corp Bhd (MRCB) says the Penang Sentral project in Butterworth, estimated to be worth over RM3 billion, will begin in 2013 after more than four years of delay.

Penang Sentral, an integrated mixed commercial development was expected to start in 2008 but works got delayed due to land acquisition matters. MRCB was awaiting federal government allocation to fund the public utility project.

It was then reported that Phase 1, comprising the integrated transportation hub with a retail component, worth an estimated RM400 million, would start in December 2010.

MRCB's property division head of marketing Zamry Ibrahim said construction will begin next year and there would be some changes to the plan, like the incorporation of more green elements in the buildings.

"There is a lot of demand for energy efficient buildings from multi-national companies and local players. We will develop what is required by the market," Zamry told Business Times in an interview recently.

The 9.6ha Penang Sentral will feature a transport terminal for ferries, buses, taxis, trains and a projected monorail station.

Zamry said the terminal will be integrated and surrounded with commercial, residential and retail components, similar to MRCB's Kuala Lumpur Sentral integrated commercial hub in Brickfields.

The 28.8ha KL Sentral development, which started over eight years ago, currently comprises a transport hub for rail, buses and taxis, two hotels, a mall, and several residential and commercial towers.

Penang Sentral, which is part of the Northern Corridor Economic Region initiative, will be developed by MRCB and Pelaburan Hartanah Bumiputera Bhd.

The project is poised to be the catalyst of growth to rejuvenate the economy in the northern region.

It has been reported that Penang Sentral is expected to generate economic spill-over effects of over RM8 billion when it is completed in about 10 years.

It is also expected that with the completion of the KTMB electrified double tracking project, train service between Penang Sentral and KL Sentral will be shorten to three hours.
