Seacera unit pre-qualifies for works related to DASH, SUKE

KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 12): SPAZ Sdn Bhd, a 60%-owned subsidiary of Seacera Group Bhd, has pre-qualified for the construction and completion works related to the Damansara-Shah Alam Elevated Expressway (DASH) and the Sungai Besi-Ulu Kelang Elevated Expressway (SUKE).

DASH, costing about RM4 billion, will be a 20.1km, three-lane expressway that will traverse Shah Alam's Puncak Perdana U10, Kota Damansara, Mutiara Damansara and Damansara Perdana.

The RM4.18 billion SUKE expressway is a 24.4km, three-lane, dual carriageway, which will connect Sri Petaling to Cheras and Ulu Kelang.

In a filing with Bursa Malaysia today, Seacera, which will see the trading of its shares suspended tomorrow (Jan 12) pending an announcement, said SPAZ had received two letters of invitation from Turnpike Synergy Sdn Bhd (TSSB) informing SPAZ that it has successfully pre-qualified as contractor for the construction and completion of the highways, and have been invited to participate in the tenders of both projects.

TSSB is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Projek Lintasan Kota Holdings Sdn Bhd (Prolintas), which, in turn, is a wholly owned unit of Permodalan Nasional Bhd.

For DASH, SPAZ has been pre-qualified in four out of the eight separate contract works packages.

The packages comprise works to be done on the sections of the highway connecting Puncak Alam to Alam Suria; Alam Suria to Denai Alam and the Rubber Research Institute Malaysia to Kota Damansara; Denai Alam to Kg Melayu Subang and the connection to the Guthrie Corridor Expressway; as well as the Mutiara Damansara area.

As for SUKE, SPAZ has been pre-qualified in one out of nine separate contract works packages in relation to the location of Pekan Kolam Ampang-Ulu Kelang and connection to the Duta-Ulu Kelang Expressway (DUKE) and the Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2) highway.
