THE opening of the extended EcoHill 2 Link at the RM5 billion Setia EcoHill 2 township development in Semenyih is a boon to residents in the northern Klang Valley.
SP Setia Bhd executive vice-president Datuk Tan Hon Lim said the link would provide immediate relief to more than 50,000 people in Beranang, Semenyih and Kajang who commute to Kuala Lumpur.
With the opening of the entire stretch, the 5.2km extension of EcoHill Link will reduce the travel time from Beranang to the Lekas-Semenyih Interchange from 30 minutes to a mere 10 minutes.
SP Setia had invested about RM80 million to construct the new link road and improve the existing infrastructure.
“We will work towards to ensure the road construction will be ready before the owners of phase one move into their new homes,” said Tan at the launch recently.
According to Tan, 354 units of double-storey terraced houses and linked semi-detached houses in the township had been completed.
He said with the completion of EcoHill 2 Link, the house owners and the public would have easy access to two new parks in Setia EcoHill 2 — the 6.89ha South Creek and the 7.29ha Adventure Park.
South Creek community park is located at the heart of the township. Its natural flora has been meticulously preserved, with more than 80 native trees carefully transplanted from the original estate.
The Adventure Park located in the highlands has natural landscape preserved for adventurous activities designed for all ages. Adult visitors can enjoy mountain biking and canopy walks, while the younger ones will be drawn to the forest playgrounds and junior wall-climbing activities.
Tan said SP Setia was working on a new housing project in Setia EcoHill 2 called Barras, the first of the starter homes series in the township.
He said Barras would have a collection of 20’ x 70’ double-storey terraced houses, priced from RM513,000.
The houses featuring two types of layout, namely four bedrooms and three bedrooms are expected to be completed in 2020, he said.
