KUALA LUMPUR: Naim Holdings Bhd, a Sarawak-based property development and construction company, is expected to win several new jobs, including the upgrading of the Pan-Borneo Highway that will cost more than RM10 billion, a source said.

The government is considering upgrading the 2,083km toll-free Pan Borneo highway, which was built in the 1960s. The upgrading is expected to start from Sematan in Sarawak to Serudung in Sabah and will take around five years.

The highway, which also passes through Brunei, will open up more rural areas via the construction of secondary or feeder roads.

Works Minister Datuk Fadillah Yusof said recently the upgrading of the Pan Borneo highway is one of the projects that is high on the priorities list.

"Its a promise made by Barisan Nasional in its manifesto," he said.

There are not many big players in the state that is capable of handling the job, a source said.

Analysts said Naim and its 33.6-per cent-owned associate Dayang Enterprise Holdings Bhd are high on investors radar because of potential contracts in the horizon and jobs won over the past two years.

They have upgraded stocks of the two companies amid earnings growth prospects.

Naim secured two station packages of the Sungai Buloh-Kajang MY Rapid Transit Line project worth RM361.4 million.

It has also been named as one of the potential contract winners for engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning works related to Petroliam Nasional Bhd's (Petronas) massive Refinery and Petrochemical Integrated Development (Rapid) Tank Farm project.

Dayang, an oil and gas support services entity, has won contracts worth RM2.31 billion from Murphy and Shell this year.

RHB Research Institute Sdn Bhd has increased its "fair value" for Naim by 119 per cent to RM3.42, on the back of positive earnings outlook.

In a March note, RHB Research analyst Joshua Ng had lifted the net profit forecast for Naim by three per cent for fiscal year 2013. It is optimistic on the earnings prospects for Dayang, in anticipation that it will secure more projects from Petronas.

Last year, both Naim and Dayang recorded a net profit of RM87.7 million and RM130.23 million, respectively.

The research division of MIDF Amanah Investment Bank Bhd believes that Naim is poised to benefit from several new projects, including the Pan-Borneo Highway.

"We expect Naim to be a big beneficiary of some of the projects mentioned in BN's manifesto, such as the Pan-Borneo Highway.

"We also expect more activities in the construction of paved roads and in the rural electrification project," MIDF senior vice-president and head of research Zulkifli Hamzah told Business Times.

IN ANTICIPATION: Perak state government working with authorities and concessionaire to seek a suitable date

IPOH: THE long-awaited West Coast Expressway project will be launched soon. Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir, who announced the good news, said the state was working with the relevant authorities, including the concessionaire, to determine a suitable date for the launch.

"The highway project was to have been launched last month but was delayed due to the 13th General Election," he told reporters after attending the state Public Works Department excellence awards ceremony here on Monday.

Zambry said: "The highway was one of the projects promised by Barisan Nasional during the general election."

The expressway will connect Changkat Jering in Taiping with Banting in Selangor.

The 316km expressway, initially estimated to cost RM7.07 billion, was slated to be the third longest expressway in the country after the North-South Expressway, which is 966km, and the East Coast Highway, which is 330km.

The cost of the project has since been revised to RM5.2 billion after the government and the highway builder agreed to cut back 25 per cent of the original plan.

The expressway spans 172km in Perak, passing through Changkat Jering, Trong, Beruas, Parit, Lekir, Sitiawan, Seberang Perak, Teluk Intan, Simpang Empat, Hutan Melintang, and Sungai Bernam in Selangor.

The project will be undertaken on a build, operate and transfer basis by Kumpulan Europlus's 64 per cent-owned subsidiary, West Coast Expressway Sdn Bhd.

At least 224km of the highway will be tolled while the remaining will be toll-free.

KUALA LUMPUR: Projek Lintasan Kota Sdn Bhd (Prolintas) is preparing a RM8 billion war chest to build two new highways in Peninsular Malaysia, said industry players and analysts who cover the construction sector.

Business Times was told that works on the infrastructure projects can take place within the next 12 months as Prolintas has already secured the concessions.

The projects are the Damansara-Shah Alam Elevated Expressway (DASH) and the Sungai Besi-Ulu Klang Elevated Expressway (SUKE).

Sources said Prolintas is working on the best financial model for the projects, addressing two core issues, namely the cost of compensation for businesses that may have to relocate before actual construction work begins, and the cost of construction materials, which has been volatile with a northward bias.

As at press time, Prolintas chief executive officer Zainudin A. Kadir did not respond to questions sent by Business Times.

Analysts said the construction sector is excited about new jobs coming on stream, including the light rail transit extension and the MY rapid transit (MRT) Line 1, but there are concerns about rising building material costs.

"The industry has to watch out for the sand price, which is rising," Edmund Tham, the head of research at Mercury Securities, told Business Times

Building material prices for components like bitumen, gravel and steel, in some cases, have risen over 100 per cent in one year, thanks to the big-ticket MRT Line 1, a RM23 billion project that aims to create an underground rail network in the city centre that links to Sungai Buloh and Kajang.

The Prolintas projects are expected to tighten demand for building materials and create a scramble among heavyweight construction companies for a piece of the action.

Among companies associated with heavy infrastructure jobs are IJM Corp Bhd, MMC Corp Bhd, Gadang Holdings Bhd and Bina Puri Holdings Bhd.

Prolintas, the country's second biggest highway concessionaire, is a unit of Permodalan Nasional Bhd, Malaysia's biggest fund management company.

It operates and manages the Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (Akleh), the Guthrie Corridor Expressway and the Kemuning-Shah Alam Highway.

DASH and SUKE are two of seven highway projects estimated to cost about RM19 billion to be developed under the 10th Malaysia Plan (2011-2015).

DASH will start at the Puncak Perdana U10 Shah Alam intersection and serve as a link for Puncak Perdana, Alam Suria, Denai Alam, Kampung Melayu Subang, Jalan Sungai Buloh, the Rubber Research Institute of Malaysia, Kota Damansara, Damansara Perdana and Mutiara Damansara.

The 20.1km three-lane, dual carriageway will end at the Penchala interchange.

SUKE will link major highways in the eastern Klang Valley, including the Duta-Ulu Kelang Expressway, Akleh, Besraya, the Kuala Lumpur-Seremban Highway, the Cheras-Kajang Highway, Kesas and MRR2.

The 31.8km, three-lane elevated expressway will start in Sri Petaling and pass through Sungai Besi, Alam Damai, Cheras-Kajang, Taman Bukit Permai, Taman Putra, Taman Permai Jaya, Taman Dagang Permai, Taman Kosas, Ampang and Taman Hillview, and exit at Ulu Kelang.

‘It’ll be a highway by 2015’
by Jonathan Chia Posted on July 1, 2013, Monday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2013/07...#ixzz2XljgCBkR

KUCHING: The 400-km dual-lane Pan-Borneo trunk road from Sibu to Miri will be upgraded to a highway latest by 2015, assured Works Minister Datuk Fadillah Yusof yesterday.

He said this stretch was receiving priority attention because the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) was expected to prosper areas stretching from Sibu to Bintulu and Miri.

“Certain portions of the upgrading works for areas such as Bintulu and Miri have been completed. Hopefully, the upgrading works could be completed in two to three years time,” he said after officiating at the Malaysian Malay Contractors’ Association (PKMM) Sarawak branch annual general meeting here.

Next on the agenda, he added, would be to upgrade the 186-km stretch between Serian and Betong, and to create more overtaking lanes along the trunk road.

“Of course, based on the (BN 13th general election) manifesto, we will do it in five years. We will implement it (the upgrading works) in stages.”

Fadillah said the Sarawak government had already submitted the costs for continuation of the highway project next year to the Economic Planning Unit of the Prime Minister’s Department for approval.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak will announce the allocation when he tables the 2014 Budget on Oct 25, he said.

“The amount approved could be less or more than what the state government is requesting. We are not sure yet at this stage.”

On another matter, Fadillah warned that he would not hesitate to cancel contracts and remove contractors from the registered contractors’ list if they failed to deliver projects as stipulated.

He said the percentage of contractors who failed to deliver stood at about 10 per cent at present.

Fadillah added that he had identified a few `trouble projects’ in the state, and would take a first-hand look at them soon.

“I also have to visit the ones in other states as well. We will find ways to reduce and find solutions to trouble projects.”

What is the status of the Shamelin Expressway construction (E9 extension)? Wikipedia says it should be completed in 2012. Right now we're going into 2014, but unfortunately the imagery of the Kuala Lumpur area is dated to 2011.

1st of all most of us call this highway as Besraya Extension instead of Shamelin Expressway. Yes, the information on Wikipedia is incorrect as the construction is still ongoing in full swing.

However, I'm not sure when the highway will be opened to public. Hopefully in 1-2 years

Boosting connectivity
By SHAREN KAUR | 05 March 2014| last updated at 12:59AM
http://www.nst.com.my/business/today...ivity-1.498883

SPURRING DEVELOPMENT: Road projects worth RM40b planned for Peninsular Malaysia

ROAD projects worth about RM40 billion will be implemented in Peninsular Malaysia over the next three to four years to boost transport connectivity.

These include proposals put forward by North-South Expressway (NSE) operator PLUS Expressway Bhd and Maju Expressway Sdn Bhd, said Malaysian Highway Authority (MHA) sources.

PLUS is proposing a new toll road in Senawang, Negri Sembilan, that links the Kajang-Seremban Highway with the NSE.

The project, estimated to cost RM2.5 billion, is aimed at cutting congestion on the NSE and boosting revenue from toll collection.

Maju Expressway is looking to extend its MEX highway to connect to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Sepang. The project is expected to cost about RM1 billion.

"We are evaluating all the proposals. Decisions will be made after a thorough study on their technical and financial capabilities. The roads will spur property development and investment," said a source.

A 465.3km road linking Kota Baru to Simpang Pelangi in Bentong, Pahang, worth RM8 billion, is also in the works.

It has been reported that a joint venture between MMC Corporation Bhd and Mudajaya Group Bhd is the front-runner for the job.

Other proposed road projects include Kuala Lumpur-Arah Serendah Expressway (KLAS), Jelapang-Selama-Batu Kawan Expressway (Jelas), Sungai Juru-Batu Kawan Expressway, Johor Baru-Pasir Gudang Elevated Expressway and Port Dickson-Banting Expressway.

Under the 10th Malaysia Plan (2011-2015), seven highways worth about RM19 billion will be built to improve traffic in Selangor.

They include the West Coast Expressway (WCE), Kuala Lumpur Outer Ring Road (KLORR), Damansara-Shah Alam Highway (DASH), Sungai Besi-Ulu Klang Expressway (SUKE), Kinrara-Damansara Expressway (Kidex) and Serdang-Kinrara-Putrajaya Expressway (SKIP).


Works Minister Datuk Fadillah Yusof told Business Times two months ago that the projects were in the planning stage.

"They must meet the condition precedent. We will look at technical capabilities and financial strength and go through public consultations for the road alignments before they can proceed."

SUKE and DASH will be implemented by Projek Lintasan Kota Sdn Bhd and WCE by IJM Corporation Bhd. Kidex will be undertaken by Kidex Sdn Bhd while Ahmad Zaki Resources Bhd's unit, EKVE Sdn Bhd, will complete the RM1.5 billion KLORR.
