Sunway Construction Group Berhad is boosting its outstanding order book to RM6.5 billion, following the letter of award from Prasarana Malaysia Berhad worth RM2,178,000,000 in connection with the LRT 3 project. The contract is the fourth elevated rail project to be undertaken by Sunway Construction, which is the largest single project in 36 years.
With the award, Sunway Construction has now exceeded its target order book replenishment of RM2 billion. “The award brings our order book replenishment to RM3.75 billion for the year. Our total outstanding order book now stands at RM6.5 billion, the highest ever since our inception, with a high visibility for future earnings,” says Chung Soo Kiong, Managing Director of Sunway Construction Group.
He continues by saying: “We are honoured to be entrusted with the longest stretch of the 37km long Light Rail Transit 3 (LRT 3) line from Bandar Utama to Johan Setia in Klang. This project will showcase our fully integrated capabilities in foundation and geotechnical, civil infrastructure, building construction and mechanical, electrical and plumbing expertise.”
