MRT Corp starts tender process for MRT3 circle line


KUALA LUMPUR: Mass Rapid Transit Corp Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp) is inviting prospective companies to participate in the request for proposal (RFP) for the MRT 3 Circle Line project management consultancy services work package.

In a statement, MRT Corp said this is the first tender to be called for the construction of the 51km MRT Circle Line which received the Government’s go-ahead on March 4, 2022.

Chief executive officer Datuk Mohd Zarif Hashim says the project management consultant (PMC) would be assisting MRT Corp in managing the MRT3 Circle Line Project and be responsible for the timely delivery of the project within the stipulated budget.

“Besides assisting MRT Corp, we also expect the PMC to serve the needs of the civil and system work package contractors too so that we can work together effectively to deliver the Project,” he said.

The RFP is open to companies that have experience in managing at least one railway project in Malaysia or overseas of a minimum aggregate value of RM1bil.

The said project should also have at least two of three following elements: elevated stations and viaducts, underground stations and bored tunnels, or railway systems.

Companies can form joint ventures or consortiums of not more than three members to participate in the RFP.

The RFP is open to Malaysian companies while minority foreign participation is allowed through joint ventures or consortiums where the Malaysian companies hold at least 60% equity.

The MRT3 Circle Line is the critical final piece to complete Kuala Lumpur’s urban rail network.

Its proposed alignment will run along the perimeter of the city of Kuala Lumpur and connect to MRT, LRT, KTM, and Monorail lines through 10 interchange stations. Once completed, the urban rail network will further encourage public transport usage in Kuala Lumpur.
