MMC Gamuda KVMRT (T) (MGKT) has won a MYR15.47bn ($4bn) contract from Mass Rapid Transit Corporation (MRT Corp) for an Underground Works Package for the MRT Sungai BulohSerdang-Putrajaya (SSP) Line in Malaysia.

The SSP Line is 52.2km in length, of which 13.5km will run underground. It will have 37 stations, including 11 underground stations.

The Underground Works Package involves the design, construction and completion of tunnels, underground stations and associated structures such as portals and escape shafts for the SSP Line’s 13.5km underground alignment from the Jalan lpoh North Escape Shaft to the Desa Waterpark South Portal.

MRT Corp CEO Dato’ Sri Shahril Mokhtar said MGKT had a proven track record in carrying out tunnelling and other underground works in the challenging geology of the Klang Valley.

“The working relationship between MRT Corp and MGKT began with the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line. This good relationship can now continue with the SSP Line.”
