ARAU, Sept 23 (Bernama) -- The construction of Universiti Kuala Lumpur Asia Sustainable Transportation Institute (UniKL-ASTI) in Padang Besar is expected to commence next year, says Perlis Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Azlan Man.

Everything is progressing as scheduled, he said.

“We have just concluded the land acquisition for the university which will sit on a 60-hectare area and we are now finalising the payment for the purchase. We expected to finalise this soon,” he told reporters after launching the MARA Prihatin Jalinan Kasih Bersama Komuniti at SMK Sanglang Hall here today.

Azlan also said that the state government had received the ceiling allocation for the project under the 11th Malaysia Plan (11MP) and 12MP totalling RM196 million.

He said they need at least two years just to complete the construction of the building

“Therefore, I cannot give the exact time when the construction of UniKL will be completed because it would depend on the situation,” he added.
