DRB-Hicom to inject RM1bil into Proton City
He said the laid-back area would be transformed into a vibrant automotive town and a Proton car manufacturing hub.
Currently, only 30% of the 1,618 ha had been developed, he said.
“Another landmark project will be implemented in the sleepy-hollow Tanjung Malim,” he said after chairing a weekly state executive council meeting.
Zambry said the state government had discussed with DRB-Hicom Bhd on plans to develop the area.
He said various infrastructure would be provided, including an access road to Proton City from the North-South Expressway.
“We want to build the access road to enable Proton cars to be brought out of Proton City.
“I hope Malaysia Highway Authority will consider the matter favourably,” he said.
Zambry said a commercial centre and a school would also be built.
Proton City’s development would add value to the area, which also housed Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris, he added. — Bernama
