Cyberjaya - High-tech city with greenery
Date: 14 Sept 2004

As Twin city to Putrajaya, Cyberjaya needs to rise up to the challenge of establishing itself as a unique city, too. The task is hardly a breeze especially as Cyberjaya is being developed as an information technology city, to meet the needs of a nation striving to be as high-tech as possible.

Since it is a model project, much lies ahead for Cyberjaya and a quick look around the city proves this. Cyberjaya is striving to stay one step ahead of modern living by offering high-tech amenities.

Residents of the Cyberia Smart Homes enjoy home automation facilities where lights, air-conditioning and home appliances can be controlled from a remote location and the home monitored by the Central Monitoring System.

Former Cyberjaya resident Nor Hamizah Azahar said the township offered better facilities now than it did two years ago.

"The Cyberjaya Lake Garden and newly-opened Cyberjaya Neighbourhood Park offer great leisure and recreation facilities. These parks are frequented by residents and visitors in the evenings," added Nor Hamizah, who still works in Cyberjaya.

While other residential areas may rely on police patrols and the neighbourhood watch, Cyberjaya offers its residents the City Command Centre (CCC).

Serving as the eyes and ears of Cyberjaya, the CCC monitors strategic points within Cyberjaya. Through the facility, assistance is offered round-the-clock to residents while the authorities are immediately alerted should any emergency occurs.

The CCC's role will be fully used when Cyberjaya's population reaches the targeted number of 120,000 by 2010, with a working population of about 50,000.



Cyberjaya's working population is now 19,000 while the residential population is about 3,000 with students forming a large part. The student population is growing fast as both the Multi Media University (MMU) and Limkokwing University College are located in Cyberjaya.

Of the two, the MMU was first to open in Cybejaya and has a student enrolment of 7,500.

Students form the bulk of visitors to The Street Mall, a commercial and leisure square dotted with lush greenery, located down the street from the MMU.

Here, they are often spotted enjoying mochas and lattes at the coffee café while whipping out laptops to enjoy the broadband access there.

Opposite The Street Mall is the Cyberjaya Transport Terminal incorporating a food court and newsstand. Cityliner, Klang Banting, Sepang Omnibus and Sum Omnibus buses come here. Although ERL Transit trains only stop at Putrajaya, there is a shuttle service from the rail station to Cyberjaya.

Cyberjaya also projects itself as an environment-conscious city and parks have been incorporated into the master plan.

Seven plots of land in the township have been earmarked for community parks

The INVENTQJAYA Building, Cyberjaya.



The InventQJaya is a four-storey research laboratory and office building situated in the heart of Cyberjaya. It houses a NANO Lab, an independent structure designed to avoid the absorption of vibrations and zero ground settlement from the main building.
