Mass Rapid Transit: total cost RM50 billion?
Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) from Sungai Buloh to Kajang is 51 kilometres long. According to its Chief Executive Datuk Wira Azhar Abdul Hamid, hitherto jobs worth RM21 billion have been awarded and RM8.02 bil absorbed. Works progress is 47.63%.
We face additional traffic congestion due to MRT works. We keep seeing that sign MMC Gamuda, the project partner. We think about the estimated total cost of RM50 billion.
The public are keeping a close watch on the MRT project, wondering about the way the project has been awarded, the system of tender and the effectiveness of monitoring.
This is the Government's biggest infrastructure project. It would have to show the most excellent transparency and accountability and the best value for money.
