Is this considered an expressway? (because of the sidewalks).

Malaysia considers new toll payment system
Published: 2008/07/22

THE Works Ministry is considering a new toll payment system where motorists will not have to stop to pay but can just pass by even at speeds of more than 100km per hour.

Its Minister, Datuk Mohd Zin Mohamed, said the Malaysian Highway Authority (MHA) would be testing the new toll payment system, Multi-Free Flow Lane, in November.

“The system developed by a Japanese company can record payment at high speed. Testing will be done at the Sungai Penchala toll plaza (LDP),” he told reporters at the "Globalisation of Young Malaysian Professionals - The Future Perspective" forum in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

The new system is said to be most efficient, capable of handling over 2,000 vehicles per hour compared to Smart-Tag between 800 and 1,000 vehicles per hour.

Cash payment system can only handle 300 vehicles per hour causing traffic congestion at toll plazas during festive seasons.

Mohd Zin said with the new system, motorists need not stop or slow down their vehicles to make payment.

The new system which uses microwave technology can record payments twice faster although the vehicles may be travelling at speeds of over 100km per hour compared to the infrared used by Smart-Tag.

He said although MHA was interested in the system used in Japan and Australia, the ministry would have to consider the additional cost and also its effectiveness during testing in November.

Bernama was told that testing of the new system would be borne fully by the Japanese company. — Bernama

Kajang-Seremban highway to be completed by Jan ‘09
by Sharon Tan

KUALA LUMPUR: The Kajang Seremban Highway (LEKAS) will be completed by January next year, costing RM766 million in construction and RM300 million in land acquisition.

Works Minister Datuk Mohd Zin Mohamad said 50% of the works for the 44.3km highway had been completed while the stretch from Kajang South to Pajam would be open to traffic by next month as it was near completion.

He said the developer and concessionaire, which has a 33-year concession, faced increased cost due to the rise in the prices of contruction materials.

“There are also issues pertaining to land acquisition. But these issues would not affect the construction of the highway,” he told the Dewan Rakyat during the question-and-answer session yesterday.

Mohd Zin also told the House that the cabinet had yet to make a decision on the toll rates to be imposed on the highway.

On the delay of the highway, Mohd Zin said the original concession was signed in 1997 but the concession holder faced hardship during the economic downturn a decade ago and had signed a new concession in 2006.

Bina Puri close to landing RM290m EDL job KUALA LUMPUR: Bina Puri Holdings Bhd is said to be close to bagging a RM290 million highway construction contract from Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd (MRCB), sources say.

Bina Puri close to landing RM290m EDL job
By Jose Barrock

KUALA LUMPUR: Bina Puri Holdings Bhd is said to be close to bagging a RM290 million highway construction contract from Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd (MRCB), sources say.

The contract is understood to be a portion of the Eastern Dispersal Link (EDL), the RM980 million highway which will connect the tail-end of the North-South Expressway at Pandan to the Customs, Immigration and Quarantine complex in Tanjung Puteri, Johor Bharu.

Last June, the federal government awarded MRCB a 34-year concession for the design, construction, operation and management, and maintenance of the EDL, which is slated to be a three-lane dual-carriageway, 8.1km road with about 4.4 km elevated.

It is learnt that MRCB would be giving out the letter of award to Bina Puri in the next few days, with an announcement to be made to Bursa Malaysia shortly after.

With the award of this contract, Bina Puri’s order book will be nudged up to about RM1.7 billion. Other jobs under its belt are the RM300 million construction of the Pasukan Gerakan Am (a unit of the local police force) complex in Muar, Johor, and the RM228 million Dewan Undangan Negeri Complex in Kuching, Sarawak.

The company has also bid for the RM350 million Kementerian Kerjaya Komplex in Jalan Sultan Salahuddin, Kuala Lumpur, where it is up against the likes of IJM and UEM Group.

Bina Puri also has a presence in Thailand, the Middle East and Pakistan which account for RM860 million of its order book.

For the first three months of the current financial year ended March, Bina Puri posted a net profit of RM1.2 million on the back of RM150.6 million in revenue. In contrast to the corresponding period a year ago, Bina Puri’s net profit fell by 14%, despite a 44% increase in revenue.

In the notes accompanying its financial results, Bina Puri says that its earnings were adversely impacted by the high cost of raw materials, such as cement and steel bars, and also diesel. The company adds that it will negotiate with its clients to mitigate the impact of such increases.

Year to date, Bina Puri’s stock has gained about 9% in value, outpacing the Kuala Lumpur Construction Index by about 42%. The counter closed yesterday at 98.5 sen, up 1.5 sen.

The 216km expressway, stretching from Banting in Selangor to Taiping in Perak[/B], will cost about RM4.6 billion, of which RM3.6 billion is construction cost

Europlus plans RM3b bond sale to fund road project

The 216km expressway, stretching from Banting in Selangor to Taiping in Perak, will cost about RM4.6 billion, of which RM3.6 billion is construction cost
KUMPULAN Europlus Bhd plans to issue bonds worth about RM3 billion early next year to finance the West Coast Expressway (WCE) project.

Its president and chief executive Tan Sri Chan Ah Chye said the company is working with a local rating agency to raise the money quickly.

Ratings for the debt paper are expected to be finalised within a few weeks and the bonds will be put on sale six months thereafter.

The fund-raising exercise has been delayed because of changes made to the alignment of the road and costing, among other factors.

The 216km expressway will cost about RM4.6 billion. It will stretch from Banting in Selangor to Taiping in Perak.

Chan said that construction cost alone is about RM3.6 billion.

Europlus' 64.2 per cent-owned subsidiary, Konsortium LPB Sdn Bhd (KLPB), was awarded the expressway concession on May 25 last year.

Under the concession agreement, KLPB will build the expressway and can collect toll for 33 years before handing the road back to the government.

The consortium's other shareholders are Kumpulan Darul Ehsan Bhd (20 per cent) and Perak Corp Bhd (20 per cent).

Chan expects the expressway project to begin works next year and to take three years to complete.

Currently, Europlus has two major contracts in hand, including the West Coast Expressway and the Canal City, which has been delayed after the Barisan Nasional lost Selangor in the general election.

Chan said the group will soon meet the new state government to finalise new terms and conditions for the project to continue.

Europlus and construction firm IJM Corp Bhd are joint-venture partners in the project.

On its outlook for the year ending January 31 2009, Chan said he expects Europlus to make a profit now that associate company Talam Corp Bhd's proposed regularisation plan has been approved by the authorities.

In the financial year ended Jan-uary 31 2008, Europlus posted net loss of RM4.5 million on turnover of RM41.1 million.

Mudajaya Unit Gets RM958 Mln Expressway Contract
June 05, 2008 20:04 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, June 5 (Bernama) -- Mudajaya Group Bhd's wholly-owned subsidiary, Mudajaya Corporation Bhd, has received a letter of acceptance from KL-Kuala Selangor Expressway Bhd, an associate of Bina Puri Holdings Bhd, for the proposed design and build construction contract for the privatised KL-Kuala Selangor Expressway.

In a filing to Bursa Malaysia Thursday, Mudajaya said the RM958 million contract involved two packages.

"Package one is Assam Jawa to Kundang while Kundang to Taman Rimba Templer is package two for a total length of approximately 30 kilometres.

"The contract is expected to be completed within 30 months from the commencement date," it said.

Zecon to be taken private
16-07-2008: by Yantoultra Ngui Yichen

KUALA LUMPUR: Zecon Bhd’s managing director and chief executive Datuk Zainal Abidin Ahmad and his private company Dawla Capital Sdn Bhd have proposed to take the construction-based company private.

Zainal is offering to buy up the remaining 61.19% stake, or 72.88 million shares, in Zecon for 50 sen cash apiece.

The proposed offer is estimated to cost Zainal and Dawla a total of some RM36.44 million. Dawla currently owns a 31.56% stake or 37.59 million shares in the construction firm, while Zainal holds 7.25% or 8.63 million shares.

Zecon’s market capitalisation stood at RM53.6 million before it was suspended for trading from 3pm on Monday. The stock reached its 52-week high of RM2.09 on July 26, 2007 while its low was 39 sen on July 7, 2008.

The offer price of 50 sen per share represents an 11.11% premium over Zecon’s last traded price of 45 sen. The firm had on Monday requested for a trading suspension pending the announcement.

In a statement yesterday, Zecon said Dawla and Zainal also offered to buy the entire outstanding 22.77 million warrants representing 51.55% of Zecon warrants they did not hold directly for one sen each.

The proposed warrant offer is estimated to cost the buyers about RM227,698. Dawla currently owns a 43.22% stake, or 19.10 million Zecon warrants, while Zainal owns a 5.23% stake or 2.31 million warrants.

Zecon said Dawla and Zainal did not intend to maintain its listing status.

Once the acceptance for the offer is 75% or more in the nominal value of the offer shares and offer warrants, the construction firm said it would not comply with the public shareholding spread requirement of Bursa Securities, in which Dawla and Zainal would procure Zecon to commence de-listing procedures.

Zecon slipped into the red in its first quarter ended March 31, 2008, with a net loss of RM2.31 million versus a net profit of RM1.29 million a year earlier on the back of a 3.3% decrease in revenue to RM26.27 million from RM27.18 million. Loss per share was 2.13 sen versus earnings per share of 1.23 sen last year.

The construction firm’s major projects include the RM614 million Syarikat Perumahan Negara Bhd housing project, construction of Triang transfer tunnel and associated works in Negeri Sembilan and the Matang highway project in Sarawak.
