IPOH (Aug 8): DRB-Hicom Bhd will expedite development of Proton City in Tanjung Malim by injecting over RM1 billion into it in the next five years, Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir said on Wednesday.
He said the laid-back area would be transformed into a vibrant automotive town and a Proton car manufacturing hub.
Currently, only 30% of the 1,618 hectares has been developed, he said.
"Another landmark project will be implemented in the sleepy-hollow Tanjung Malim," he told reporters after chairing the weekly state executive council meeting.
Zambry said Proton City, where Proton cars are being assembled now, was developed in 1996.
He said the state government had conferred with DRB-Hicom on plans to develop the area.
The menteri besar said various infrastructures would be provided in the area, including building an access road to Proton City from the North-South Expressway.
"We want to build the access road to enable Proton cars to be brought out of Proton City. I hope the Malaysia Highway Authority will consider the matter favourably," he said.
Zambry said a commercial centre and a school would also be built in the area.
Proton City's development would lend added value to the area, which also houses Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris, he added. — Bernama
