Open tender for new air traffic centre

Rafizah MAZLAN - 20-févr.-2014 04:48:08
The Malaysian government is expected to issue an open tender for the construction of the RM700 million new air traffic control management centre by April.  According to director-general of the Department of Civil Aviation, Datuk Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, they  have identified a six-hectare piece of land and are carrying out soil investigations now. The department plans to advertise the open tender by April. Evaluation of the tender will take two months, with ground breaking of the centre, to be located at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang, expected by October.  Completion of the new centre will take 3.5 years. In the 2014 Budget announcement last year, the government said it would invest RM700 million for the construction of a new air traffic control management centre. The new centre is set to enhance KLIA’s competitiveness as a regional aviation hub, as the existing centre in Subang is now 20 years old and faces challenges in technology upgrade. Total project cost, which includes the construction of the centre and new solution implementation, should be lower than RM700 million. Source: Bernama
