30 June 2016 marks a new milestone for our Asset Consultancy Services. Opus-AV Consortium, the appointed Project Manager for the LRT Line Extension 2 Project (LRT2) has successfully completed this key public transportation service for residents of Klang Valley.
Opus-AV Consortium was appointed on 20 March 2009 by Prasarana Malaysia Berhad (Prasarana) as the Project Consultant to undertake full Project Management Services of LRT2. This includes General Project Management Services, Planning and Submission Control, Land Acquisition Process, Design Management, Contract Administration and Construction Management.
The project which cost RM8.64 billion involved 42 contract packages managed by about 240 experienced and multiple discipline personnel. Our team collaborated and worked together to ensure successful delivery and completion of the project involving two LRT Line extensions — The Kelana Jaya Line and Ampang Line which traverse through the densely populated residential and commercial areas.
The LRT and AMG lines were launched by YAB Prime Minister of Malaysia on 30 June 2016. LRT2 is set to benefit some 2 million Klang Valley residents especially those in the Petaling district.
With a better public transport system, traffic congestion will be reduced in Subang Jaya, Glenmarie, Kinrara and Puchong and the general public in these areas will have access to additional public transportation.
