“The spine road will start at the Batu Kawan stadium and end at the location of the Second Link,” he told a press conference.

“Through our subsidiary, PDC Properties Sdn Bhd, we will develop 2,918 houses along the spine road.

Rosli said PDC planned to develop about 30,000 homes in Bandar Cassia over 15 to 20 years. 

He said when completed, the Second Link should boost the property value at Bandar Cassia by 50%. 

“The Second Link has increased interest in Bandar Cassia. Because of it, we expect to take 15 to 20 years to develop the township, instead of 20 to 30 years,” he added.
