Notable Projects

Bank Pembangunan Malaysia Berhad (BPMB) takes great pride in its diverse portfolio of clients and projects that have made a significant impact on the nation's development. These projects, supported by the Bank's funding and expertise, have contributed to Malaysia's infrastructure, economy, and the growth of local businesses. Some notable projects are:

SMART Tunnel

Bank Pembangunan Funding: RM 323 million (2004)

The SMART tunnel is a storm drainage and a road structure in Kuala Lumpur. The 9.7 km tunnel diverts large volumes of flood water during heavy storms and eases congestion for an average of ~30,000 cars daily by connecting the areas of Sungai Besi and Kampung Berembang. It optimises land usage by providing a practical solution for mitigating the effects of flooding and facilitating traffic flow. Since 2007, the SMART tunnel has diverted floodwaters on more than 40 occasions, saving an estimated RM 1.4 billion in potential public damage.

ERL Train

Bank Pembangunan Funding: RM 704 million (1999) & RM1,497 million (2003)

The high-speed train connects Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) to KL Sentral. The train service provides a reliable, efficient means of transportation as it shortens the 57 km journey travel time from 1 hour to 28 minutes. It plays a significant role in enhancing connectivity and convenience for travellers to and from KLIA, contributing to the overall accessibility and transportation infrastructure of the city. This is a key innovative project we are proud to be a part of.

Weststar Contruction

Bank Pembangunan Funding: RM 360 million (2014)

This project delivered 1,504 units of living quarters to civil servants working in Putrajaya. The affordable housing options aided recruitment and retention, promoting workforce stability and enhanced public service delivery. It is important that we contributed to providing access to affordable housing options to civil servants as they dedicate their careers and lives to public service to fulfil the needs and interests of the rakyat.


Bank Pembangunan Funding: RM 30,000 (1982) & RM 213 million (2015)

Ramly started off as a small family business, selling burgers in the Klang Valley. With an initial capital of RM 30,000, they set up a burger stall and used the rest as working capital. By 1985, they moved production to factories in the Bandar Tun Razak Industrial Area with a daily burger patty production of 100,000 patties. In 2015, Ramly announced plans to build the largest processed meat plant in Asia to further boost production capacity. In 2019, the fully automated factory was completed and can produce 70,000 MT of various processed food items with a significant portion targeted for export to China, Thailand and Myanmar. We treasure our relationship with Ramly, as it has weathered close to four decades and speaks to our ability to scale with our clients.

Sprint Highway

Bank Pembangunan Funding: RM 509 million (1999)

The SPRINT Highway serves as an important transportation artery in the Klang Valley as it eases congestion between Damansara, Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur via the Kerinchi Link, Damansara Link and the Penchala Link. The accessibility provided by the highway has also contributed to the urbanisation and growth of residential and commercial developments in the surrounding areas. The connectivity is further enhanced by the integration with various public transportation systems..

Belum Rainforest Resort

Bank Pembangunan Funding: RM 20 million (2014)

The Belum Rainforest Resort is one of Malaysia's premier ecotourism holiday destinations, located in the heart of the Belum-Temengor Rainforest. It is one of the oldest rainforests in the world and home to a diverse range of flora and fauna including the Malayan tiger, the Asian elephant and the Rafflesia. The resort follows sustainable practices and promotes responsible tourism as it minimises its ecological footprint and contributes to rainforest conservation. MKN Group sought Bank Pembangunan's financing to enjoy the government subsidised tourism scheme to fund its expansion and renovation efforts.

KL Sentral Station

Bank Pembangunan Funding: RM 800 million (1999)

The 72 acre urban development in Brickfields hosts commercial developments and an integrated rail hub, connecting the Kelana Jaya LRT, KTM, KL Monrail, ERL, and MRT under one central station. Its integrated network of public transportation caters to an average of 200,000 commuters daily prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2000, Bank Pembangunan & Infrastruktur Malaysia Berhad (BPIMB) and Macquarie (Malaysia) were appointed as advisors to KL Sentral’s sukuk issuance for the KL Sentral Development Project. The project was completed in 2001.

LKIM Fishery Complex

Bank Pembangunan Funding: RM 226 million (2013)

Located in Kuching, the government fishery complex contains several facilities for fish landing, handling, storage and marketing. The facilities in the complex consist of a commercial boat jetty, marketing hall, administration office, multipurpose hall, fuel farm, waste water facilities, fish box storage, canteen and net loft. These facilities will improve resource management efficiency of the fishing industry and enhance the quality and value of products, resulting in higher profits for fishermen.

Jambatan Kedua

Bank Pembangunan Funding: RM 500 million (2009)

The 24km Penang Second Bridge was built to overcome traffic congestion on the old Penang Bridge built in 1986. In 2006, it was unveiled as a project under the Ninth Malaysia Plan. Construction started in 2008. The Bank part-financed the construction via a RM 500 million bridging facility to facilitate the funding needs of the project. The bridge was opened to traffic in 2014 and is currently the second longest bridge in Southeast Asia.


Bank Pembangunan Funding: RM 6.7 billion (2009)

The Electrification of Double Track Project that runs through Perak, Penang, Kedah and Perlis involved the laying and electrification of a 329km double track to replace the existing single track that runs from Ipoh in Perak to Padang Besar in Perlis. The project was a part of a master plan to improve the public transport system in Malaysia. In 2021, the KTM ETS service ferried around 615,000 passengers.

Polytechnic Hostel

BPMB Funding: RM 41 million (2009)

The residential hostels were built for 1,500 students from the Polytechnic Jeli campus in Kelantan. Students from disadvantaged backgrounds, including those from rural areas or low-income families, may face additional challenges in accessing higher education. By providing these hostels, the playing field is levelled and students from all backgrounds are ensured an equal chance to pursue their academic goals – thus increasing accessibility to education.
