The Sun (Malaysia) - - MEDIA & MARKETING -

IJM Cor­po­ra­tion Ber­had’s prop­erty devel­op­ment arm IJM Land Ber­had (IJM Land) and its joint-ven­ture part­ner, Amona Devel­op­ment Ber­had re­cently ini­ti­ated a ground­break­ing cer­e­mony for the con­struc­tion of Pan­tai Sen­tral Park In­ter­change.

The 2.8km in­ter­change will link the Pan­tai Sen­tral Park devel­op­ment to the Pan­tai Dalam/Ker­inchi area and the New Pan­tai Ex­press­way (NPE). The in­ter­change will also pro­vide res­i­dents of Pan­tai Sen­tral Park with di­rect ac­cess to the NPE be­sides con­nec­tion to the mixed-use devel­op­ment en­claves of Petaling Jaya, Kuala Lumpur, Bangsar and Mid Val­ley City.

Con­struc­tion is ex­pected to take about 18 months at an es­ti­mated cost of RM58 mil­lion. Once com­pleted, the in­ter­change will po­si­tion Pan­tai Sen­tral Park as a de­sir­able place in Kuala Lumpur to live and work in due to it strate­gic lo­ca­tion.

In his pre­pared speech, Fed­eral Ter­ri­to­ries Min­is­ter Datuk Sri Tengku Ad­nan Tengku Man­sor stated that the in­ter­change will pro­vide com­muters with a smoother flow of traf­fic lead­ing into the new Golden Tri­an­gle. The con­nec­tiv­ity will play a key role as it is fore­seen to im­prove eco­nomic growth in and around the area.

“When com­pleted in Fe­bru­ary 2018, the ded­i­cated ac­cess points will pro­vide thou­sands of road users and com­muters a more di­rect ac­cess to and from the NPE, thereby re­dis­tribut­ing some of the traf­fic flow from the ex­ist­ing ac­cess points and en­cour­ag­ing smoother traf­fic flow when en­ter­ing and ex­it­ing the devel­op­ment and area,” said Amona Devel­op­ment Group COO Che Has­nadi Che Has­san.

Pan­tai Sen­tral Park is a 58-acre in­te­grated city devel­op­ment tagged with a gross devel­op­ment value (GDV) of RM2.5 bil­lion. It is en­vi­sioned as the “cat­a­lyst to cre­ate a next gen­er­a­tion town­ship that truly em­braces the core val­ues of “Peo­ple, Planet and Pri­or­ity”.
