Kidex is dead, or is it? Another elevated highway rises in Selangor
(MMO) – The controversial Kinrara-Damansara Expressway (Kidex) was scrapped last year but recently, plans for the construction of an elevated highway along a similar route as the axed project has surfaced.
The new project has even been given a name, the Petaling Jaya Dispersal Link (PJD Link), and appears to be undertaken by a company called PJD Link Holdings Sdn Bhd though little is known about the people behind it or its history.
Public information about the proposed PJD Link is scarce. What is known is largely based on promotional pamphlets said to be distributed to Petaling Jaya residents earlier this week by the company.
Who owns PJD Link Holdings?
According to the Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM), the concession company PJD Link Holdings Sdn Bhd was officially registered on December 8 last year and specialises in surface work on streets, roads, highways, bridges and tunnels.
The directors are listed as Ravendran Sivalingam and Nisha Menon Radha Krishnan. Ravendran is also listed as the secretary for PJD Link Holdings. Little else is publicly available.
When anti-Kidex lobby group Say No to Kidex (SNTK) sought to get more information from the source on Monday, its representatives discovered PJD Link Holding’s office in Dataran Prima as listed on the pamphlets shared the same address as one of the key firms behind Kidex, Emrail Sdn Bhd.
