Elevated Expressway

The Sungai Besi-Ulu Kelang Elevated Expressway (SUKE) is a 15.2 mi (24.4 km), three-lane, dual-carriageway running from Sri Petaling to Ulu Kelang. It has 14 interchanges and reaches out to over 60 residential areas and connects to major highways and roads in Kuala Lumpur.

Aiming to Alleviate Congestion

SUKE is being constructed by Projek Lintasan Sungai Besi-Ulu Klang Sdn. Bhd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Projek Lintasan Kota Holdings Sdn. Bhd., also known as PROLINTAS. PROLINTAS is renowned as Malaysia’s intra-urban elevated highways developer. SUKE aims to be a viable alternative to Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2) by minimizing traffic congestion in Cheras, Pandan Indah and Ampang.

Connecting high-density areas closer to everyone will promote economic growth and, most importantly, offer an effective traffic dispersal system. SUKE is expected to reduce traffic congestion by 30% during peak hours on MRR2.

Package CA3

In 2016, China Communications Construction Company (M) Sdn. Bhd. (CCCC) was awarded Package CA3 located in Alam Damai, southeast of Kuala Lumpur as a sub-contractor. The total length of Package CA3 is approximately 3.3 miles (5.2 km). Its construction involves mainly elevated expressway mainline structures and minor at-grade construction. The structure work of Package CA3 is expected to be completed by the end of 2020, which will now likely be extended well into 2021 due to the delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns.

EFCO Malaysia is involved in forming hundreds of the post-tensioned concrete portal beams 6′-7″ and 8′-3″ (2.0 and 2.5 m) in width and a maximum of 13′-2″ (4 m) in depth. Lengths range from 65′-8″ to 164′-1″ (20 m to 50 m) with corbels at each side of the beam. The shoring height varies from 19′-9″ to 29′-7″ (6 m to 9 m). The portal beams were poured in two lifts.

EFCO Malaysia provided a full shoring solution with E-Z DECK® shoring towers and SUPER STUD® shoring towers for the upper layer of the post-tensioned concrete portal beams. A feature of these EFCO shoring systems is the ability to pre-assemble shore towers on the ground, then fly them into position by crane. This significantly enhanced erection efficiency and flexibility at the jobsite and enabled for a safe environment for workers.

The whole Package CA3 involves over 100 piers, each with a minimum of two layers of portal beams. The modular and standardized shoring towers EFCO provided also benefited CCCC in terms of saving the time it took to cycle equipment from pier to pier, largely due to fact that EFCO’s E-Z DECK shore towers can be easily moved fully assembled and modified to accommodate any height variance.

CCCC is very pleased with EFCO’s super service, the solutions they have provided, and the expertise of EFCO’s Field Service Supervisors at the jobsite, which greatly assisted in safe and efficient construction.
