New Pantai Barat Highway (LPB) - 215.8 km

Lebuh Raya Pantai Barat Hubungkan Taiping Dan Banting Dibina

SUNGAI SIPUT, 18 Nov (Bernama) -- Kerajaan sedang merancang untuk membina Lebuhraya Pantai Barat (LPB) yang menghubungkan bandar Taiping di Perak dengan Banting di Selangor tidak lama lagi.

Menteri Kerja Raya Datuk Seri S.Samy Vellu berkata LPB yang melibatkan pembinaan laluan sejauh 215.8 km itu akan dibina oleh syarikat konsesi Konsortium LPB Sdn Bhd.

"Pembinaan lebuh raya itu akan dilaksanakan selepas perjanjian konsesi ditandatangani dan berkuatkuasa," katanya kepada pemberita selepas melancarkan Program Gotong Royong anjuran Majlis Perbandaran Kuala Kangsar di sini Sabtu.

Beliau bagaimanapun enggan menyatakan nilai projek itu.

Menurutnya perjanjian konsesi bagi projek itu sudah disiapkan, dan ia akan dikemukakan untuk kelulusan kabinet minggu depan.

Beliau menjangka pembinaan lebuh raya itu akan mengambil masa selama tiga tahun bagi menyiapkan jajaran di negeri Selangor dan empat tahun bagi jajaran di negeri Perak.

Samy Vellu berkata jajaran bagi Perak adalah sejauh kira-kira 126.5 km, bermula dari persimpangan antara Jalan Persekutuan dan susur Plaza Tol Changkat Jering di Lebuhraya Utara-Selatan, ke persimpangan di Jalan Persekutuan yang berhampiran Jambatan Sungai Bernam.

Bagi jajaran Selangor sepanjang 89.3 km pula, ia bermula dari persimpangan Jalan Negeri yang melalui Tanjong Karang dan Batang Berjuntai arah selatan ke persimpangan Jalan Negeri yang melalui Banting dan KLIA di Sepang.

"Lebuh raya ini akan mempunyai 16 persimpangan bertingkat dan 14 Plaza Tol," katanya.

Samy Vellu berkata ramai kontraktor terutamanya dari Kelas F (kecil) akan mendapat manfaat daripada pembinaan lebuh raya itu.

Beliau berkata projek LPB merupakan antara projek-projek infrastruktur terpenting negara, selain projek Jambatan Kedua Pulau Pinang berharga RM3 bilion yang dijangka siap pada 2011.

Mengenai pembinaan Lebuhraya Pantai Timur (LPT) Fasa 2 dari Kuantan ke Chendering di Terengganu, beliau berkata ia berjalan mengikut jadual.

Pembinaan LPT Fasa 2 berharga RM2,100 juta dibahagikan kepada 12 pakej, dan dijangka siap sepenuhnya pada tahun 2009.

EPU asks for more time on W Coast Highway proposal

Email us your feedback at [email protected]


The Economic Planning Unit (EPU) has requested for more time to assess the proposals for the West Coast Highway linking Taiping and Banting, said Works Minister Datuk Seri S Samy Vellu.

Clarifying press reports that the proposed project had been cancelled in a statement on Nov 28, he said EPU would re-table the proposals to Cabinet after requesting for a "little more time" to make the assessment.

Samy Vellu had earlier said he did not know why EPU had withdrawn the proposal when he brought it to the Cabinet last week. He had also informed the Cabinet not to delay the project any further as the costs would increase.

Good News for Perak Coastal Dwellers

KUALA NERANG, March 4 (Bernama) -- After a delay of more than a decade, the cabinet has given the go ahead for the West Coast Expressway (LPB) project stretching 215.8 kilometres to be implemented soon.

Works Minister Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said the expressway, costing more than RM3.1 billion, would link Taiping in Perak to Banting in Selangor and was expected to be completed in seven years.

Speaking to reporters after the ground breaking ceremony for the Alor Star-Kuala Nerang-Durian Burung Road upgrading project, here today, he said the Konsortium LPB Sdn Bhd had been appointed to implement the project.

It will be the third longest expressway in the country after the North-South Expressway (PLUS) stretching 966 kilometres and the East Coast Expressway (LPT) which is 330 kilometres long.

Upon completion, 1.2 million vehicles are expected to use the LPB daily.

The Perak state government had earlier urged the Economic Planning Unit in the Prime Minister's Department to speed up the long-delayed project as land acquisition had been completed.

On the 47.8km Alor Star-Kuala Nerang-Durian Burung Road upgrading which cost RM246 million, Samy Vellu said it was expected to be ready in September 2009.

Projek Lebuhraya Pantai Barat RM3.1b dilaksana


KUALA NERANG: Selepas lebih sedekad tertangguh, Kabinet bersetuju supaya Projek Lebuhraya Pantai Barat (LPB) sepanjang 215.8 kilometer bernilai lebih RM3.1 bilion dilaksanakan tidak lama lagi.

Menteri Kerja Raya, Datuk Seri S Samy Vellu, berkata lebuh raya itu akan menghubungkan Taiping di Perak dan Banting di Selangor yang dijangka mengambil masa tujuh tahun untuk disiapkan.

Bercakap kepada pemberita selepas majlis pecah tanah projek menaik taraf Jalan Alor Star-Kuala Nerang-Durian Burung di sini semalam, beliau berkata Konsortium LPB Sdn Bhd dilantik bagi melaksanakan projek itu.

LPB ketiga terpanjang di negara ini selepas Lebuhraya Utara Selatan sepanjang 966 kilometer dan Lebuhraya Pantai Timur (LPT) sejauh 330 kilometer.

Apabila siap, LPB dijangka dapat digunakan 1.2 juta kenderaan setiap hari.

Sebelum ini, kerajaan Perak meminta Unit Perancang Ekonomi (EPU) di Jabatan Perdana Menteri menyegerakan projek yang sudah lama tertangguh itu kerana pengambilan tanah sudah lama dilakukan.

It's ironic...I heard an RTM news report on an initiative to protect wetlands and coastal areas, followed immediately by an announcement of the LPB project being reawakened....

something not connecting here

Cheers, m
Hope they will build the highway keeping the damage to the minimum, which means elevated roads over wetlands and other environmentally vulnerable areas.

Europlus bags RM7.07b highway job
By Roziana Hamsawi Published: 2012/01/27
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

Kumpulan Europlus Bhd has officially obtained the contract to build a RM7.07 billion highway linking Banting (Selangor) and Taiping (Perak).

Europlus said its 64.2 per cent-owned West Coast Expressway Sdn Bhd (WCE) obtained an approval letter yesterday from the Public Private Partnership Unit of the Prime Minister’s Department.

Releasing details of the project yesterday, Europlus said the West Coast Expressway will cover 316km. Of this, 224km will be tolled, while 92km will be toll-free.

The project is based on build-operate-transfer with a concession period of 60 years, the company said in a statement to Bursa Malaysia yesterday.

WCE has secured a government support loan (GSL) of RM2.24 billion to “enhance the viability of the project”. The soft loan will kick off in 2013 at an interest rate of 4.0 per cent per year and an interest subsidy of up to 3.0 per cent from commercial loans for a period of 22 years.

The terms of the GSL and interest subsidy will be finalised by WCE with the Ministry of Finance, Europlus said.

It noted that toll revenue in excess of an agreed traffic volume will be shared on the basis of 70:30 between the government and WCE until full settlement of the GSL and subsequently, 30:70 after the settlement of the GSL.

The government will bear some RM980 million cost to acquire land along the highway construction. WCE, meanwhile, will call for open tenders for main construction works. Proper concession agreement will be signed between WCE and the Works Ministry upon
clearance from the Attorney General.
