Gamuda, Litrak approve sale of highway assets to ALR

In April this year, the concession holding companies for LDP, Kesas, Sprint and Smart Tunnel highways each accepted their conditional letter of offer from ALR, which planned to take over ownership of the highways.

“The sale of was met with 99% approval in the extraordinary general meeting of the group on July 27 and Litrak on August 5.

Kesas is owned 70% by Gamuda, with the remaining 30% by Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Selangor (PKNS). Meanwhile, Projek Smart Holdings (Smart) is a 50:50 JV between MMC Corp and Gamuda.

Litrak hold 50% equity in Sprint, with Gamuda holding 30% and Kumpulan Perangsang Selangor (KPS) with 20%. Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong (LDP) is wholly owned by Litrak, which in turn is 42.8% controlled by Gamuda, therefore Gamuda’s effective interest in Sprint in 51.4%, The Edge Markets wrote.

In April, deputy group MD of Gamuda Mohammed Rashdan Mohd Yusof said that Klang Valley motorists stand to save RM5 billion from the Malaysian government’s proposal to restructure the four toll concessions, which included the promise of no more toll fare increases for the remainder of the concession periods. The restructuring will also save the government RM4.3 billion in subsidies.

      Highways are a money pit with limited value ceiling. We should focus on getting people easier to move around other than using cars. Growing population means this will get worse. This is why proper urban planning should take place. Stop designing cities around cars! Start designing around people

        As long as it benefits the rakyat with lower toll charges, what do we care.
