Men­teri Be­sar Datuk Seri Mo­hamed Azmin Ali, who is also PKNS chair­man, launched the project dur­ing the state gov­ern­ment’s monthly gath­er­ing or­gan­ised by PKNS, here.

De­vel­op­ment of the smart town­ship project be­gan in 2006 and was then called Ta­man Sains Se­lan­gor II. It is 20 per cent ready and sched­uled for com­ple­tion in 2027.

PKNS chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer No­raida Mohd Yu­sof said the project, with a gross de­vel­op­ment cost of RM16.9 bil­lion, would be a pi­o­neer to the smart town­ship con­cept with the Internet-ofThings, which would be de­vel­oped by the cor­po­ra­tion.

She said the de­vel­op­ment of the SCV project would en­com­pass the eight el­e­ments of safe town­ship, busi­ness friendly, ef­fi­cient town­ship, ed­u­ca­tional town­ship, green town­ship, in­no­va­tive town­ship and smart com­mu­nity town­ship and smart premises.

“PKNS will de­velop these eight el­e­ment town­ship in phases, be­gin­ning with one sec­tion be­fore it is widely de­vel­oped across the en­tire town­ship.

“The smart part­ner­ship was de­signed with em­pha­sis given to ef­fi­cient com­mu­ni­ca­tion sys­tems be­sides en­hanced wa­ter, en­ergy and waste man­age­ment sys­tem,” she said.

The de­vel­op­ment of the 25 sq km first phase would be fit­ted with high-tech closed cir­cuit tele­vi­sion, LED street light­ing and in­tel­li­gent traf­fic lights, which would all be mon­i­tored by an in­te­grated con­trol cen­tre.

She said the MRT Sun­gai Bu­loh-Ser­dang-Pu­tra­jaya would also serve the planned town­ship equipped with modern liv­ing high-speed broad­band ser­vices and e-ser­vice sys­tem for res­i­dences and com­mer­cial hubs. Ber­nama
