MMC Gamuda JV set to clinch tunnelling contract for Malaysian rail line

The MMC Gamuda consortium has signed a project delivery partner (PDP) contract for the Mass Rapid Transit Line 2 (Line 2), the second route of the Klang Valley MRT Project in Malaysia.

The PDP agreement means the joint venture of MMC Corporation Berhad and Gamuda Berhad is a front runner to win the tunnelling package for the project.

The consortium is currently delivering Line 1 of the project, which is expected to be complete by July 2017.

Mass Rapid Transit Corporation’s (MRT Corp’s) chief executive officer Shahril Mokhtar said: “MRT Corp and MMC Gamuda have already forged a good partnership with each other after working together for the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line (Line 1).

“I can see the PDP agreement for [Line 2] is much more refined and an improvement from that for [Line 1]. Both parties have learnt a lot from the partnership for [Line 1] and I am happy to see that the learnings have been incorporated into this new agreement.”

Under the PDP contract, MMC Gamuda will be responsible for the delivery of Line 2 within the agreed cost and delivery date.

The 52.2km line will serve a corridor with a population of around 2M people, stretching from Sungai Buloh to Putrajaya.

The public inspection for the alignment of Line 2 and its stations is ongoing and will end on 17 August.

Construction of the line is expected to begin in the second quarter on 2016.
