GAMUDA Land Bhd has opened the RM150 million Gamuda Cove Interchange, here.
It provides direct access from the North-South Expressway Central Link (ELITE) highway to the 615.06ha Gamuda Cove township’s commercial business district.
The interchange, which took two years to complete, features a 12-lane toll plaza, washrooms, prayer room and parking bays for road users’ comfort and convenience.
Gamuda Land said the interchange would be key access point for future phases.
Two additional linkages are in the pipeline to connect Gamuda Cove and Cyberjaya via Persiaran Cove Selatan.
Gamuda Land executive director Datuk Abdul Sahak Safi said Gamuda Cove was planned not just to be a smart township, but also a protected natural sanctuary.
“With a gross development value(GDV) of RM20 billion, Gamuda Cove is on track to realise our vision of becoming a ‘Nature Sanctuary, Smart City’.
“Its strategic location, bordering the Kuala Langat forest reserve and Paya Indah Wetlands, allows us to streamline our development along the natural greenery surrounding our community,” said Sahak at the launch yesterday.
“The 24.12ha central park development is currently ongoing and is expected to be completed before residents move in,” he added.
Meanwhile, Works Minister Baru Bian said the toll plaza started operating yesterday.
He said the interchange would help the development of the surrounding areas, besides connecting the residents of Dengkil to Sepang, Putrajaya and Cyberjaya.
“With infrastructure planning and the construction of new intersections along existing highways, people will have easy access to some areas that were previously far-reaching.
“This provides opportunity for real estate developers in Malaysia, such as Gamuda Land, to explore the suburbs for development of new township that provides good links with city centres and other cities,” he added.
