CLT helps bridge the gap
Residents in Precinct 16, Putrajaya, can expect a quicker way to Precinct 1 when a pedestrian bridge connecting the two is completed in December. Putrajaya Corporation (PPj) has teamed up with Malaysian Timber Council (MTC) to build the Glued Laminated Timber (Glulam) pedestrian bridge, estimated to cost RM1.8mil. At 47m long and 3m wide, the bridge will be made of local timber. Abdul Rahim said the project would strengthen MTC’s effort to encourage and promote the use of timber, as well as share the advent of technology in timber engineering.
