GCU, a member of Aurecon Group leads geotechnical design for surface works of Cyberjaya City Centre Station, Malaysia
Client: Khairi Consult Sdn Bhd (KC) as the DDC for this project
Turnkey Contractor: MMC Gamuda KVMRT (PDP SSP) Sdn Bhd
Project Owner: Mass Rapid Transit Corporation (MRT Corp)
Situated within Malaysia’s Cyberjaya City Centre, a 53.37-hectare integrated lifestyle retail and mixed development, the train station will be part of Cyberjaya’s MRT Line 2, a 52.2 kilometre long track from Sungai Buloh to Serdang and Putrajaya.
The MRT Line 2 is part of Klang Valley public infrastructure masterplan which was first introduced in 2017. Targeted for completion in 2022, the line will have an expected ridership of 530,000 daily. It will provide better access to efficient public transport for residents and reduce traffic congestion across Greater Kuala Lumpur.
GCU, a member of the Aurecon Group, has been appointed by Khairi Consult Sdn Bhd (KC) under MMC Gamuda KVMRT (PDP SSP) Sdn Bhd to be the geotechnical design consultant for external works scope of the Cyberjaya City Centre Station. KC was appointed by MMC Gamuda KVMRT (PDP SSP) Sdn Bhd as the Detailed Design Consultant (DDC), i.e., the lead consultant for the Southern Package of MRT2.
The infrastructure works for the Cyberjaya City Centre MRT station including the Station’s elevated structure was partially completed when a revised development layout which involved the realignment of the local access road, introduction of a connecting pedestrian bridge and a new bridge to cross existing main water pipes was raised by the Client. GCU was appointed by KC to undertake the Geotechnical design works for the realignment of the local access road as well as the foundation for the two new bridges. The team has proposed suitable ground treatments for areas with weak soil layers in order to safely construct the new road embankment.
The team at GCU put forward a safe, robust and cost-effective geotechnical solution that involves conducting the necessary ground analysis and treatment. This will enable a successful realignment of the local access road and a safe and sound pile foundation design for the pedestrian bridge and the bridge crossing the water pipes to be put forth.
This project is likely to be completed by June 2022.
