New Pantai Expressway (NPE)

Project Description

Client: Road Builders (M) Sdn Bhd
Location: Subang Jaya - Pantai - Kuala Lumpur
Services: Civil & Structural / Electrical & Mechanical
Completion Date: 2004
Project Value: MYR 580 Million

MMSB Consult in association with Perunding ZKR was appointed as Civil & Structural / Electrical & Mechanical consultancy engineers for the privatised New Pantai Highway. (Later named New Pantai Expressway - NPE) The proposed expressway is, approximately 21km length and commenced from Subang Jaya and terminates at Jalan Bangsar via Jalan Klang Lama. It connects with both the Kuala Lumpur - Seremban Expressway and the Federal Highway Route II.

The project involved the upgrading of existing roadways and consists of 7 grade separated interchanges. There are 16 nos. of bridge structures, 2 underpasses and 5 toll plazas. The bridges are of conventional beam and slab type utilising precast M-beams while the underpasses were built using open-cut construction method.

Extensive geotechnical and geological studies were carried out for this project as height of fill ranged from 15m to 30m due to space constraint. The design also involved filling of 2 major ponds with depth varying from - 3m to 16m.

As the alignment runs through congested urban environment, significant utility services diversion was encountered. Similarly, extensive and efficient traffic management was employed during the course of construction.

MMSB's scope includes:

  • Overall detailed design
  • Diversion of existing utility and services
  • Construction in congested urban development
  • Tolling facilities
  • Traffic management
  • Geotechnical design - pond reclamation, slope stability
  • Design of electrical services
  • Roadside drainage, cross-culverts and hydrological studies
  • Contract BQ and documentation
  • Construction supervision and technical support during construction
