Construction begins for Pantai Sentral Park Interchange
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”.
