PUCHONG: Prasarana Malaysia Bhd is expected to dish out more tenders which may be worth close to RM2 billion for Light Rail Transit (LRT) 3 before identifying the total cost of the project next year.

Chief executive officer Datuk Seri Azmi Abdul Aziz said it would award one last big tender by year-end and other small tenders through to next year.

“We will see by next year the target cost of the project. So far, there is only one big tender to be awarded and we hope to do it by end of the year. After awarding all the tenders previously, we are happy that work for the project has begun,” he told a press conference here at the launch of SMILE today.

Prasarana, the project owner of LRT3, has dished out a total of RM7.4 billion worth of LRT3 tenders so far. The total project cost is expected to be around RM9 billion, according to reports.  

Sunway Construction Group Bhd came up as the bigger winner following the Letter of Award from Prasarana worth RM2.18 billion for LRT 3 project.

The contract, which boosts SunCon’s outstanding order book to RM6.5 billion, is its largest single project in 36 years.
