THE Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) has initiated a request for proposal (RFP) exercise to invite bids for the implementation of the Kuala Lumpur-Klang Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) busway along the Federal Highway.
The RFP is open to all bidders registered in Malaysia with existing experience in transit projects or infrastructure and building projects.
The project implementation scope will include comprehensive planning, design, finance, construction, operation, maintenance and upgrade of the Kuala Lumpur-Klang BRT project.
The Kuala Lumpur-Klang BRT line is the highest priority corridor from the 12 identified BRT corridors under the Klang Valley BRT Feasibility Study. The proposed line, which spans 34km with 25 stations, is a dedicated busway that will provide easy connectivity to LRT (Light Rail Transit), MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) and KTM Komuter rail lines, with all stops linked to other bus services.
The BRT Kuala Lumpur-Klang line is expected to cut journey time from the capital city to Klang from the present 70 minutes to 40 minutes. It is envisaged to benefit some 1.9 million people in the Klang Valley with an estimated daily ridership of more than 400,000.
Interested parties are encouraged to visit SPAD’s website http://www.spad.gov.my/tenders for more information.
The deadline for submission for the RFP exercise is 2nd May before noon.
