Among its iconic projects is the Putrajaya Transportation Master Plan. The services rendered for this project included overall master planning of arrangements of road networks and rail transit systems, detailed traffic study of existing scenario, analysis and forecasting, analyzing and evaluating the extent of feasibility concepts to acceptable levels of performance and good engineering practice, design criteria and parameters, estimation of construction costs and financial evaluation as well as preparation of project development phasing schedules.
The Division has also conducted highway feasibility studies, as well as the National Axle Load Study; completed 80% of the major highways in Putrajaya; and implemented the first precast flyover project at KL Sentral, Malaysia.
