Arup managing director Wan Anuar Wan said: “Our involvement in some major infrastructure projects in Malaysia such as the Kelana Jaya LRT, Penang Second Bridge, Guthrie Corridor Expressway and STAR LRT, puts us in good stead to deliver the underground design for the SSP Line in an efficient and sustainable way.”
