Malaysia Airports takes KLIA2 contractors to task for delay in completion

By B.K.SIDHU and NEVASH NAIR

PETALING JAYA: The delays plaguing the completion of KLIA2 is the result of the non-delivery of parts of the project by contractors, leading Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) to come out to say that it would impose liquidated and ascertained damages (LAD) on the responsible parties.

While MAHB did not reveal the amount of the LAD being sought, sources told StarBiz that it amounted to some RM4mil to RM6mil for every month of delay. KLIA2's first targeted date of completion was September 2011, but it isn't clear what period of time the LADs are being claimed for.

Sources also told StarBiz that the UEM Group was one of the contractors affected.

Failure to open the airport on June 28 would mean a fifth delay in the opening of what has been touted as Asia's biggest low-cost carrier terminal, or LCCT, that can cater to 45 million passengers.

Sources also said that while the airport was about 92% complete, the terminal building had not been fully completed by the contractor a UEM-Bina Puri joint venture.
