The blue colour stuctures are the godowns according to the jaga.
I have visited the Westports on Thursday morning together with Malaysiakini and MerdekaReview jounalists and DAP Pandanmaran treasure Tee Boon Hock and PJ Action Team leader Francis Chang. We have taken some photographs and will upload for bloggers to view the billion ringgit Westports Free Zone which was widely regarded as another ‘white elephant’ project by industry insiders.
Besides the Free Zone Office Complex, we have a glimpse of the 512 units of godowns (blue in colour) from the outside (we were barred from entering without a special pass) which were completed but not ready for operation.
I will also show bloggers the original look of the 1,000 acres of swamp land in the later updates. It’s ridiculous to pay more than RM25 psf for such land,what if the actual price paid was even higher, say RM44 psf? ( Earlier report said that PKA paid RM1 billion for the 1,000 acres of swampy land for the free zone project. But the AG report 2005 siad the price was RM1.81 billion).
I personally find that the high-rise motorway (currently under construction) connecting the Westports and the free zone is unnecessary and a sheer waste of money. It only allows someone to make more money.
The only prominent foreign investor who has set foot in Westports is Aker Kvaerner.
