The termination of MMC-Gamuda’s contract to build the underground portion of the MRT Line 2 (MRT2) was a decision made by the Cabinet, says Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng.

On Oct 7, Lim said Cabinet had decided to terminate the MMC-Gamuda contract to build the underground portion of the MRT2 project, adding that all unfinished underground work would be re-tendered via an open tender process.
