The areas surrounding Sungai Pendang in Kedah have been plagued by floods over the years. This has led to the state government implementing extensive flood mitigation measures. As we are skilled in this area, we were brought in to participate. Currently an ongoing project, it is our third involvement in flood mitigation, with a wider scope of works to be done.
Aside from upstream works on Sg Pendang in Kedah, the project includes upgrading a section of Sg Choras/Sg Sala and 3 affected bridges along the river. The value of the tender contract is almost RM108 million. Our other prior involvements in flood mitigation involved designing and constructing storm tunnels as well as SMART intake structure in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur.
