BANGI: Mah Sing Group Bhd will build an interchange connecting the North-South Expressway to Southville City, its new development south of Kuala Lumpur.

The 2.5km-long interchange will be built from the existing Bangi interchange, making the new township a 25km drive away from the city.

The new interchange will also connect Southville City with the surrounding educational, industrial and residential neighbourhoods.

Works Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof, who officiated at the groundbreaking of the interchange on Wednesday, said it was heartening to see corporations like Mah Sing putting much thought into planning new townships with connectivity in mind.

The minister added that the Government welcomed private sector initiatives as the involvement of the private sector had helped the modernisation of the country’s infrastructure.

“An infrastructure investment is a great effort by one company, but it always pays in the long run, as townships will flourish much better,” he said.

Fadillah said the success of a development project was not only based on its size or value but also measured by the impact of the development to the community.

“We believe Southville City will be the catalyst for economic growth in Bandar Baru Bangi and its surrounding neighbourhoods.

“The highway network is an integrated effort to help improve the productivity of businesses and trade.

“It also ensures the smooth running of economic activity, thus attracting more investors to start businesses,” he said.

Fadillah commended the Mah Sing Group for taking up the Government’s call to provide quality housing to the mass market at affordable prices, with the launch of its new Savanna Executive Suites block, which comprised three-bedroom apartments units priced from RM350,000.

Southville City is a gated and guarded township, which promotes urban lifestyle outside the city centre.
