Police Quarters With 270 Families Will be Demolished to Make Way for MRT

September 28, 2017

Sentul police quarters will be demolished to make way for the mass rail transit (MRT) Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya (SSP) line.

Families residing within the quarters have been provided with temporary housing while they await the completion of their new quarters.

In a joint statement, MMC-Gamuda KVMRT (T) Sdn Bhd (MGKT) and MRT Corp Sdn Bhd said the demolition of Sentul police quarters began in June to be completed in December.

“The 270 families living in the quarters are now temporarily housed in the Teratai Residence apartments in Setapak while waiting for the completion of the new police quarters,” said SSP line project director Datuk Amiruddin Maaris.

Notably, the families will be relocated to their new quarters in Taman Keramat AU1.

To be ready by December 2018, the 120 sq m three-bedroom units will come with various facilities such as shops, surau, a community hall and a kindergarten.

Mohd Fuad Kamal Ariffin, MGKT’s general manager, revealed that the residents were given full assistance during the moving out process.

“Their temporary housing is paid for by the MRT project and they are provided with assistance, such as school buses for the children to get to the schools which they were already enrolled in,” Mohd Fuad stated.

Also known as MRT2, the MRT SSP line requires 13 centralised labour quarters for its workers, of which six have already been completed. The other seven in Serdang, on the other hand, are set to be completed in six months, said Amirudding.

He noted that the overall construction of the project is on track, with 13.7 percent completion. Progress for its underground section is at 16.1 percent, while the project’s elevated section is already completed.
