MVV will make Ne­gri pre­ferred des­ti­na­tion for home­buy­ers

New Straits Times - - Letters -

I RE­FER to your re­port “MVV goes green” (NST, May 6). The Malaysia Vi­sion Val­ley, cov­er­ing 153,000ha un­der the 11th Malaysia Plan, will boost de­vel­op­ment in Ne­gri Sem­bi­lan.

Menteri Be­sar Datuk Seri Mo­hamad Hasan is pas­sion­ate about this 30-year plan that will be un­der­taken in stages un­til 2045.

The area cov­ers Port Dick­son, Ni­lai and Seremban, which will be made into city states. Each will have in­fras­truc­ture and ameni­ties for peo­ple to have a bal­anced life.

The High-Speed Rail sta­tion in Seremban, with de­vel­op­ment tak­ing shape in Ban­dar Ains­dale and Ni­lai Impian, will at­tract res­i­dents and city folk to com­mute to KL for work.

If one drives through Ne­gri Sem­bi­lan, one will see in­te­grated de­vel­op­ment projects tak­ing shape.

Four ini­tial projects to be im­ple­mented un­der MVV are:

UP­GRAD­ING of roads from Kuala Lumpur in­ter­na­tional Air­port to Telok Ke­mang at RM260 mil­lion;

BUILD­ING new roads from Ni­lai to Ban­dar En­stek at RM200 mil­lion;

BUILD­ING an al­ter­na­tive road from the Seremban toll plaza to the Seremban Mid­dle Ring Road at RM90 mil­lion; and,

SET­TING up a 2,440ha man­u­fac­tur­ing zone.

The state and fed­eral gov­ern­ments want to see MVV at­tract­ing RM296 bil­lion in in­vest­ment and cre­at­ing 1.38 mil­lion jobs.

The plan is to make Seremban the cen­tral busi­ness district, and the Ni­lai-En­stek-Sen­dayan area the ed­u­ca­tion and sports clus­ter.

A park has been pro­posed near Bukit Galla.

All these ef­forts by the pri­vate, state and fed­eral gov­ern­ment part­ner­ships will cre­ate a new emerg­ing eco­nomic zone, mak­ing Ne­gri Sem­bi­lan the pre­ferred des­ti­na­tion for peo­ple to live in.
