TRX awards Gadang the contract for its North South bridge
KUALA LUMPUR, 17 April 2019 – TRX City Sdn Bhd, the master developer of the upcoming international financial district Tun Razak Exchange (TRX), announced today that it is awarding Gadang Engineering (M) Bhd a RM38.5 million contract to build a vehicular and pedestrian bridge that will connect its North and South parcels.
TRX is divided into two sections: the 57-acre North parcel which is currently under construction, and the 13-acre South Parcel. Under the contract, Gadang will construct the main bridge deck over Jalan Sultan Ismail that will link the two sections. The 67- meter single span bridge will also include a cantilevered structure to accommodate pedestrian walkway, and a utility corridor located within the truss system to host power and other utilities connections.
As the future CBD of Kuala Lumpur, and its most accessible district, seamless connectivity is a vital part of TRX.
TRX features an integrated MRT interchange station that hosts Sungai Buloh-Kajang line and the Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya line. This is further supported by direct links to major thoroughfares such as Jalan Tun Razak, the MEX highway, SMART Tunnel and upcoming DUKE 3 (Setiawangsa-Pantai Expressway).
Along with the public and private transport linkages, the pedestrian connectivity in TRX via its North West Plaza off Jalan Imbi ensures a direct link between the financial district and KL’s shopping belt in Bukit Bintang.
With Menara Prudential and the Exchange 106 already at the final stages of completion, TRXC is expecting the first tenants of the financial district to move in by mid-2019. The new headquarters for HSBC Malaysia and Affin Bank are currently under construction and expected to be ready in 2020. The Exchange TRX, a lifestyle development jointly developed by Lendlease and TRXC, is expected to be ready in 2021.
