Transport Minister Wee Ka Song announced in August his ministry would reopen the tender for the KVDT2 rehabilitation project.

KUALA LUMPUR: The High Court today granted a temporary injunction barring Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd (KTMB) from instructing the contractor for the Klang Valley Double Tracking Phase 2 (KVDT2) project to give up possession of their worksite.

Judge Lim Chong Fong issued the temporary order sought by Dhaya Maju LTAT Sdn Bhd against KTMB on Nov 2.

In their application, the company claimed that KTMB’s instruction to give up possession of the Klang site – from Port Klang to Jalan Kastam – was unlawful and without basis.

The temporary injunction will be in effect from Nov 2 to Dec 10, when it will be mentioned again.

Lim also restrained KTMB from revoking Dhaya Maju LTAT’s licence to occupy the site until Dec 10.
