LRT extension to be ready by 2015

KUALA LUMPUR: The light rail transit extension project will only be ready in 2015.

Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd group managing director, Datuk Shahril Mokhtar, said it was originally scheduled to be completed in 2014, but faced a setback due to land acquisition issues in Puchong.
"The project is now 30 per cent completed, with main works carried out including relocation of utilities, construction of rail guideway and box girder (beam). Despite this, we try to manage the cost within the budget," he said.
The disputed land is located within the approved alignment at Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong (LDP) next to SRJK (T) Castlefield and squatter houses there.
The RM7 billion project commenced early this year with the Kelana Jaya line extension.
On the company's plan, Shahril said a major corporate restructuring within the Prasarana top management would take place next month. He, however, did not divulge the details.
