IPOH, March 22 — Putrajaya Holdings Sdn Bhd is expected to begin construction work on the multi-billion ringgit Tronoh Laketown Resort, near here, anytime soon, said Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir
He said the new township facing Universiti Teknologi Petronas (UTP) in Tronoh would cover 400 hectares of land.
“It is a matter of time before Putrajaya Holdings builds an impressive township for the area which will allow local and international students to study in a conducive environment.
“It will also be a catalyst for Perak’s efforts to turn Tronoh and Seri Iskandar as a new development area and education hub in the state,” he said after a working visit to the Darul Ridzuan Institute (IDR), here, today.
He said besides UTP, other educational institutions such as Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) and Mara Professional College are also located in the area.
Zambry also said the state government had identified several areas in Hulu Perak, Bagan Datoh, Lembah Beriah near Kerian and Gua Tempurung, near here, as new development areas in line with Perak’s aim of becoming developed state in the future.
