PROLINTAS: A Highway to Enriching Communities

” In Malaysia, the development of highway infrastructure has been parallel to the robust growth of the nation, as travel and transportation time has been cut down significantly. A leading highway infrastructure developer and concessionaire, Projek Lintasan Kota Holdings Sdn. Bhd. (PROLINTAS) has been instrumental in the development and management of a number of key expressways in the Klang Valley. GCEO, Datuk Mohammad Azlan Abdullah, showcases his vision for the company going forward.

PROLINTAS, a wholly-owned subsidiary of PNB, is determined to continue enhancing life in Greater Kuala Lumpur as the largest highway operator in the area, with a total length of 127 km. Over the last 25 years of operations, we have helped reduce the cost and time of commute for millions people.

With the expected opening of the Sungai Besi-Ulu Kelang Elevated Highway (SUKE) and Damansara-Shah Alam Elevated Expressway (DASH) later this year, we anticipate that traffic congestion will be reduced by more than 30 percent especially at routes such as Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2), Jalan Ampang, Persiaran Mokhtar Dahari and Persiaran Surian.

I am proud of how we have grown from having one highway, namely the Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (AKLEH), under our management, to having six. Furthermore, all our highways have received ISO certification, which marks our commitment to the highest levels of standards in highway construction, management and services.

More Than Just a Concessionaire

As the Klang Valley is the heart of commerce and industry in Malaysia, it is vital that road connectivity is as smooth and efficient as possible. PROLINTAS has contributed to this through our various highways, while at the same time, the enhanced connectivity has also helped in the growth of certain areas.

PROLINTAS is more than just a highway developer and concessionaire. We are an organisation that is committed to uplifting the community and the environment. Efforts in this regard include reducing electricity consumption through using LED lighting, and using electric bikes to patrol the highways. We also conduct tree planting exercises along our highways as part of our corporate social responsibility (CSR).

Also, the upcoming DASH (Damansara-Shah Alam Elevated Expressway) will be equipped with noise reduction barriers with the latest technology to tackle noise effect. We will also see a full closure noise barrier installed at Damansara Perdana; the first on a Malaysian highway.

Moving forward, we are focused on embracing digital technology. This includes implementing the Smart Surveillance System (S3), which enables real-time monitoring of highways for faults. In addition, our PROLINTAS Digital Assist helps highway users reach out to our patrol teams with just one touch.

Our commitment to human capital development is reflected in the formation of a Police Bantuan (Auxiliary Police) unit to assist in our highway operations. We also developing young graduates by imparting them with marketable skills through the Professional Training and Education for Growing Entrepreneurs (PROTÉGÉ) programme.”
