SJK (T) Ladang Midlands in Section 7, Shah Alam, received RM100,000 and essential school supplies from MRCB Builders together with their strategic partners Prasarana Malaysia Bhd and Sunway Construction Sdn Bhd.

This gesture was made in return for the use of a portion of the school’s field as storage area for the LRT3 project.

Kota Anggerik assemblyman Najwan Halimi said that following fruitful discussions, MRCB extended their corporate social responsibility (CSR) contribution of RM100,000 to the school, providing the builder greater flexibility in utilising the area for the implementation and enhancement of facilities at the Section 7 LRT station.

He said the construction started in April, with 25% of the school field currently being utilised.

“This area will be used for construction purposes for the next six months, after which the field will be restored,” said Najwan.

SJK (T) Ladang Midlands school management board member K. Uthyasoorian said the funds would be utilised for various programmes to benefit the pupils during the six-month construction period.

“With the assistance and involvement of the state assemblyman, who mediated between the school and the developer, the contribution was secured not only for the project but also for specific programmes within the school,” said Uthyasoorian.

Also present at the cheque presentation were MRCB Foundation trustee Datuk Shamrat Sen Gupta, Prasarana Malaysia LRT3 project infrastructure head Henny Shahril Kasiran, MRCB Builders Setia Utama LRT3 land and public relations director Mohd Yusuf Ali, SJK (T) Ladang Midlands headmistress Theivamani Sannasie and SJK (T) Ladang Midlands Parent-Teacher Association chairman Elangovan Muniandy.

A Prasarana Malaysia LRT3 project representative said the project was currently at 84% completion despite previous constraints, such as the movement control order over the last few years.

“Train operations are expected to start in early 2025.

“Construction work will be completed by the end of 2024, followed by a trial operation to ensure no further adjustments are required. “We anticipate conducting all necessary testing and trial operations by then,” he said.
