Shahril said the 18 works packages were divided into two categories — open and Bumiputera — and applicants were evaluated based on several aspects, including financial capabilities, track record, experiences and health and environment practices.
For the JV submissions, he said technical and financial evaluations were carried out on the individual companies, with the total score of their technical and financial points combined based on their equity percentage. He said the 28 shortlisted companies were chosen from among 195 who submitted applications, following two public advertisements. Among the companies shortlisted for all three type of packages (elevated civil works, stations and depots) in the open category are Sunway Construction Sdn Bhd, Muhibbah Engineering (M) Sdn Bhd, IJM Construction Sdn Bhd, Gadang Engineering (M) Sdn Bhd and Loh & Loh Construction Sdn Bhd, he added.

Considered the country’s biggest infrastructure project as part of the Greater Klang Valley Master Plan, the MRT will provide the backbone service to the existing public transportation system, and be integrated with the existing LRT, KL Monorail and KTM services. Cutting through the city centre from Sungai Buloh to Kajang, the new MRT will run for approximately 51 km. This includes 9.5 km through underground tunnels and be serviced by 27 elevated stations, seven stations underground and depots at Sungai Buloh and Kajang. – Bernama

I believe that there is enough space for ALL 28 companies to be included in building of the 27 stations and adjoining tracks. Who says a single or a handful of companies must take the entire contract? That way the fastest and most efficient and ‘least damaged section of tract after a few years’ company can be gauged or penalized. Share building plan costs then build cooperatively. Share the wealth via fair distribution of contracts or just admit you are not fair minded enough to be a good government. Meanwhile remember to vote for MPs who will ensure : 1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism 2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy. 3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution. Vote only for Joe Publics who are worth no more than 200K and able to pledge the items in the questionairre below as well : http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1914864390044&set=o.318515515322&type=1&theater
Learn these 2 terms EMINENT DOMAIN and ALLODIAL and vote only for MPs who will abolish the first and implement the second. Otherwise run for candidacy on the issues of these 2 terms. Will be a sure winner!
For development’s sake, Jalan Sultan shops must go, says Prasarana – by Yow Hong Chieh – 11th August 2011
KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 11 — Sacrifices must be made in the name of development, the Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit (KVMRT) project owner told Jalan Sultan landowners whose properties will be acquired to allow for underground tunnelling works. Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd (SPNB) project development director Zulkifli Mohd Yusoff said today it was necessary to tunnel underneath Jalan Sultan as it represented the optimum alignment between the fixed points of KL Sentral and Permodalan Nasional Bhd’s (PNB) Merdeka development. A section of those who turned up for the Prasarana briefing on August 11, 2011. — Picture by Jack Ooi “We understand this place has been there for more than 100 years but I think all of us must realise that there must be sacrifices for development,” he told some 30 landowners at a briefing here today. “It’s not that we want to purposely acquire your land. The alignment has to go somewhere. This is for the rakyat.”
Zulkifli pointed out that Kampung Baru land had been similarly acquired for the Light Rail Transit (LRT) and other areas along the proposed Sungai Buloh-Kajang (SBK) KVMRT line will also face compulsory acquisition. “Jalan Sultan is not the only place. We have land in Kajang, land in Kota Damansara. Everyone is affected,” he said. He was responding to Bukit Bintang MP Fong Kui Lun, who expressed concern over the “great impact” acquisition and demolishment of part of the historic Chinatown enclave will have on the nation’s cultural heritage and tourism. Zulkifli stressed that unless the KVMRT optimised ridership by linking key fixed points that coincided with existing transport infrastructure, commercial areas and future developments, traffic congestion in Kuala Lumpur would continue worsen. “We don’t want Kuala Lumpur to be like Bangkok or Jakarta where the roads are like a parking lot [and] your car doesn’t move,” he said. The SBK line will cover a distance of 51km, of which 9.5km will be underground. Seven of the 31 stations will also be underground, including one under the existing Klang Bus Stand near Chinatown. SPNB has to acquire the land above the stations and tunnel before any subsurface work can begin as section 44 of the National Land Code 1965 states that property owners not only have the right to the plot itself but also the air above and ground below.
Zulkifli also revealed today that SPNB had spent “three to four months” in talks with the Attorney-General’s Chambers to see if it was possible to tunnel underneath existing properties without having to acquire them but was told it could not be done. “We had months of discussion with the Attorney-General’s Chambers on how we can have the tunnel underneath and the buildings remain… but under the current law, there is no such provision,” he said, adding that similar talks were held when planning the LRT. This prompted Fong to pledge he would table a motion in Parliament to amend the National Land Code to allow underground construction without the need for surface acquisition, to claps from those present. The Land Office will hold hearings with Jalan Sultan landowners starting August 15 to decide on the compensation to be paid to each. Owners may appeal the quantum by obtaining their own valuations.

We will sacrifice the MP or the political coalition instead. Recall the below :

11 Government Reserve Land To Be Developed Nationwide – Malay Mirror – 16 July 2011
KUALA LUMPUR — Government reserve land at 11 locations nationwide will be developed through a collaboration between the Defence Ministry and Greencity Development Sdn.Bhd (GCDSB). An agreement to that effect was signed today by Deputy Defence Minister, Dr.Abdul Latiff Ahmad, on behalf of the Defence Ministry, and GCDSB, which was represented by its chief executive officer, Mohamad Khairuddin Taha. Speaking to reporters later, Abdul Latiff said that under the agreement, the land, covering 30 hectares, would be leased to the company for 30 years for development, including for building of petrol stations, integrated vehicle service centres and other automobile-related activities. “This is a good collaboration to avoid the land from being left idle and will also provide the government with RM7 million in revenue a year for 30 years,” he added. Abdul Latiff said implementation of the projects would also provide employment opportunities for army retirees. “We will ensure 35 per cent of the jobs that will created from these projects will be given to army retirees,” he added.

How can this be fair? Muslim Malay voters, better end this system of patronage and favouring of civili servants. Not only are they supported lavishly by government, now they will be further favoured? How about raising salaries instead of doing something with this GLC which would likely by another full 30% (pocketed ‘commission’) OVER this 42% that does not include ordinary Muslim Malays. I don’t think the honest among the army or uniformed would even want to be involved in this.
Try the below too from oathkeepers USA you uniformed guys :
1. We will NOT obey orders to disarm the American people.
2. We will NOT obey orders to conduct warrantless searches of the American people
3. We will NOT obey orders to detain American citizens as “unlawful enemy combatants” or to subject them to military tribunal.
4. We will NOT obey orders to impose martial law or a “state of emergency” on a state.
5. We will NOT obey orders to invade and subjugate any state that asserts its sovereignty.
6. We will NOT obey any order to blockade American cities, thus turning them into giant concentration camps.
7. We will NOT obey any order to force American citizens into any form of detention camps under any pretext.
8. We will NOT obey orders to assist or support the use of any foreign troops on U.S. soil against the American people to “keep the peace” or to “maintain control.”
9. We will NOT obey any orders to confiscate the property of the American people, including food and other essential supplies.
10.We will NOT obey any orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances. Love the Rakyat and challenge anything corrupt about to be fostered via Green City.
You are military men, dealers of death to invaders (army) and protectors of citizens (police), and NOT thieves stealing from the Rakyat by colluding with anyone. PAS ready to formalize the figures and breakdowns on this raiding of reserve lands already disenfranchising the minorities? Consider the sin of Asabiya then think about Reserve land and the below 3 items :
1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.
The Rakyat of all races would absolutely love a ex-police or ex-army who will run on the above 3 items. Any ex-uniformed personnel who endorses the above 3 items could very well have a shot at PM, the regular politicians are too rich and involved in GLCs for their own and the Rakyat’s good. Just plutocrats, nepotists and racists, the dross of humanity as opposed to honourably discharged Muslim ex-army who denounce corruption via collusion against the Rakyat and the sin of Asabiya.
