The V3 viaduct construction package for the Klang Valley MyRapid Transit (KVMRT) project has been awarded to Mudajaya Corporation Bhd.
Work is expected to begin this month. The RM816mil package includes three aboveground stations, slope works, sedimentation control, environmental monitoring and compliance management as well as landscape work.
This was announced in a press conference yesterday by MRT Corp chief executive officer Datuk Azhar Abdul Hamid.
The three stations along the 6km stretch are The Curve, 1Utama and TTDI, using 114 single and cantilever piers.
Mudajaya Corporation managing director and chief executive officer Anto Joseph said the expected date of completion for V3 was Feb 29, 2016.
“Piling and pier works will take place in stages. Picking up from Dataran Sunway, works to link to The Curve will start in September and completed in November next year.
“The second stage — linking The Curve to 1Utama — will commence from May 2013 to October 2013 while works on the link from 1Utama to TTDI will take place this month till November 2014.
“Lastly, works from TTDI to Section 17 will only start in July next year and end in November 2014,” he said, adding that pre-works and utility works were taking place now until April 2015.
Azhar said they would work at minimising public disturbance and traffic diversions.
He added that any notice of temporary disruption to utility services would be announced in the media.
Meanwhile, MRT Corp stated that it would be investing in landscape works and sound barriers to minimise the impact of the KVMRT project in Pinggir Zaaba.
Azhar also said they were waiting for a reply from the management in BB Plaza and Yayasan Selangor over the integration plan with the Bukit Bintang underground station.
