tender for ecrl infrastructure works to be opened in april
Billions of ringgit infrastructure projects will open in stages in April.
There are at least 30% civil packages ,(
Tunnel works are not included)
Although the country of China-
China Communications Construction Company (CCCC)
Received an award for the RM55bil ECRL project.
Malaysia Railway Co. , Ltd. MRL)
Noor Azlan Salleh, director of construction, said the ECRL project includes 60% infrastructure works and 40% system works.
\"Starting from April, CCCC will open tenders to local contractors
Registered on last October.
\"The tender will be open in stages to qualified local companies,\" he said during a media visit to the ECRL construction site on Thursday.
He also said that projects currently in Phase I are on track.
\"At present, the construction preparations for the three tunnels are in progress in Bentong itself,\" he said . \".
There will be 45 tunnels in multiple locations built along the project route, including 16.
The 37 km-meter double-Hole tunnel from Benton to Gombak is the longest railway tunnel in Malaysia.
\"Called Yunding tunnel, will be built using two tunnel rigs (TBM)
\"This will be introduced from China in November,\" he added . \".
Noor Azlan said that at present, MRL is carrying out ground preparation work to receive the machine for the boring machine.
\"By June, we had to reinforce the routes leading to the tunnel construction site, which were located on uneven winding routes in order to receive the machines,\" he said . \".
It is expected that it will be transported from Klang port in Selangor to the site here on November, and the work of Yunding tunnel will start on 2019 after the installation of the machine.
Other tunnels will be constructed using drilling and blasting methods.
The ECRL project covers 688 km kilometers from Klang port in Selangor to Tumpat in Kelantan and is a large project
Ticket infrastructure project to change the face of the East Coast.

Wildlife underground passages will also be built in 29 strategic locations, so that wildlife can move freely despite the railway crossing.
