MoT: klia2 deadline not ambitious

Malaysia's Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said that the original June 2013 deadline for klia2's completion was not an ambitious one. With the official launch date pushed further to May 2014, the total construction period for the airport is now four years versus two years initially. Cost has also escalated from RM2bn to RM4bn mainly due to the extension of the terminal, which will handle 45m passengers annually from 30m initially. "I believe that what we have been doing in the last four to five weeks, to get everyone on board, is a great start and with that target, I would like to look at it positively without any doubt," he said.
