Interim Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein has given an ultimatum that the klia2 must be completed on time.
"The timeline given for the works at the terminal building to be completed on April 30 next year to enable its opening on May 2, has to be adhered to," he said at a press conference after visiting the klia2 site here today.
He said that the ministry would not accept any excuse for delays, stressing that it was important for the stakeholders and contractors to deliver the terminal on time.
Hishammuddin also announced the setting up of a special committee to keep close tabs on the mega project to prevent any more delays.
"It will be headed by my deputy, Datuk Abdul Aziz Kaprawi. The committee will also seek to explain to the public on the causes of the delays and the additional cost incurred," he added.
