Masteel offered 14.3ha site for commuter train depot
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Steel Works (KL) Bhd's joint venture for a proposed commuter train service has been offered 14.31ha in Kempas, Johor for its Iskandar Malaysia commuter train depot.
Masteel said on Tuesday its JV company -- Metropolitan Commuter Network Sdn Bhd (MCN) -- had received the offer from the Transport Ministry to build the depot. It would submit the application to Perbadanan Aset Keretapi for the land.
"The size of the land is sufficient for MCN's depot construction and is strategically located in Johor for the efficient operation of MCN's proposed commuter train service," it said.
MCN is a joint venture with KUB Malaysia Bhd.
