PETALING JAYA (June 1): TA Global Bhd has received the construction approval for the Sri Damansara Sentral MRT link bridge, marking tremendous progress in strengthening the accessibility of Damansara Avenue, the developer’s 48-acre master plan in Bandar Sri Damansara.

Upon completion, the 320m elevated pedestrian link bridge will be an integral part of Damansara Avenue's mobility architecture. It is poised to connect the development directly to the Sri Damansara Sentral MRT Station, bringing Damansara Avenue and Bandar Sri Damansara all within walking distance of transit.

In a statement on Monday (May 30), TA Global chief executive officer Tiah Joo Kim said: "2022 has been full of massive milestones for Damansara Avenue. We recently completed the second residential project called Ativo Suites and about 98% have been sold to date. The new Sri Damansara MRT link bridge will connect directly to the next phases of the Damansara Avenue master plan, including the 15-acre mixed-use Ativo Annexe project, which has a gross development value of RM3 billion. We are excited about its potential of elevating Damansara Avenue and the surrounding communities into a more accessible precinct as well as creating an exceptional, connected and efficient experience for our residents and visitors.”

Forming part of the MRT Putrajaya Line — formerly known as the Sungai Buloh-Serdang Putrajaya Line — the Sri Damansara Sentral MRT Station will connect to Greater Kuala Lumpur and various landmarks, including Ampang Park, Persiaran KLCC, Tun Razak Exchange, Bandar Malaysia, Serdang and Putrajaya. It is also linked to the Sungai Buloh MRT Station, which interconnects with the MRT Phase 1 Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line, providing seamless connectivity up to Kajang.

The construction work is scheduled to commence this month and it is estimated to be completed in 18 months. TA Global will award the contract to Tower Build Steel Sdn Bhd at a cost of approximately RM15 million. “Crossing over intersections of major highways, including the Damansara-Puchong Expressway, Duta–Ulu Klang Expressway 2 and Jalan Kuala Selangor, the Sri Damansara Sentral MRT link bridge calls for specific engineering and design requirements due to the bridge’s construction complexity," said Tiah.
