Building Towards A More Sustainable State in Negeri Sembilan


Building Towards A More Sustainable State in Negeri Sembilan

Bandar Ainsdale, Chemara Hills and Nilai Impian are a brisk drive from Kuala Lumpur International Airport by car, but they also connect with the rest of the world in more ways than one. Whether you want the full experience of living and working in Negeri Sembilan or prefer to live here and work in the Klang Valley, Negeri Sembilan has a connectivity solution to meet your needs. In fact, after you see how easy it is to get around from here, you may find that your ideal place to live and work is… right here!


A developed country is not where the poor have cars; it is where the rich take public transport. This pearl of wisdom, popularly attributed to the visionary Mayor of Bogota, Enrique Peñalosa Londoño, could apply to Malaysia Vision Valley  in Negeri Sembilan and where it meets with the fast-growing southern regions of Greater Kuala Lumpur.


With the completion of the Kelana Jaya and Sri Petaling Line Extension Projects at the end of June 2016, residents of Bandar Ainsdale, Chemara Hills and Nilai Impian now have easy access via 18 new stations to the highly dense areas growth areas of Greater Kuala Lumpur, including Ara Damansara, Subang and Puchong, and beyond.



The completion of the country’s first two planned MRT Lines will also be a great boon. The first line, between Sungai Buloh and Kajang should be fully operational by 2017, and will be directly linked to several stations in Negeri Sembilan, including Nilai and Seremban. This line reaches into the CBD of Kuala Lumpur, as well as the developing financial district in KL Sentral and beyond, before terminating at Sungai Buloh. The MRT makes it yet easier to live amid the gracious open spaces and thoughtfully designed amenities of Bandar Ainsdale, Chemara Hills and Nilai Impian, while easily commuting to work in the city.  


As Kuala Lumpur slowly but surely becomes Greater Kuala Lumpur, issues of congestion and overpopulation have inevitably arisen, even as property prices increase over the long term. At Sime Darby Property, we believe that connectivity plays a crucial part in deciding where your new home would be. This is why Bandar Ainsdale, Chemara Hills and Nilai Impian are effortlessly accessible via several highways and trunk roads as well.



Bandar Ainsdale is located 5km away from Seremban, 15km from Nilai, 35km from KLIA and 70km from Kuala Lumpur via the North-South Expressway. The township is accessed from its dedicated interchange on the Expressway, and will also have its own KTM station. Chemara Hills is located just 1km away from the Seremban exit of the North-South Expressway

Already, under Malaysia Vision Valley, there are plans for the road from Kuala Lumpur International Airport to Telok Kemang to be upgraded. A new road from Nilai to Bandar Enstek  will be constructed, and there will also be an alternative road from the Bandar Ainsdale Interchange to the Seremban Middle Ring Road.

But it is the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High-Speed Rail Link (HSR) that is generating the most excitement. The HSR will be the first high-speed railway in Southeast Asia, and is expected to be the fastest mode of public transport between the two cities once it is completed by 2026.


By reducing travelling time for the 330km journey between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore to just 90 minutes, the HSR is expected to catalyse development in Seremban as well as other urban centres along its route, and attract multinational companies to set up offices there.


The HSR will connect with the MRT and LRT lines, and proceed to Jurong East in Singapore, from the planned Bandar Malaysia at the former Sungei Besi Airport, via Seremban, Melaka, Muar, Batu Pahat and Iskandar Puteri. The trains are meant to run at 15-minute intervals, with the complete journey time for non-stop express trains at around 90 minutes. The stopping trains will complete the trip from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore in around two hours.


The potential significance of the HSR for Bandar Ainsdale, Chemara Hills and Nilai Impian, among other things, lies in its broadening of access to clusters of businesses and employees in different areas. This pooling and interaction of resources is expected to increase career opportunities for individuals, and create an enlarged pool of specialist talent for companies. PEMANDU has forecasted that the gross national income generated by this project will reach RM 6.2 billion in 2020, and create 28,700 jobs.


As Negeri Sembilan shapes up as the cosmopolitan state between Greater Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, the well-connected residents of Bandar Ainsdale, Chemara Hills and Nilai Impian are poised to go places, and return to their sanctuary as often as they need to. All the better to find their ideal work-life balance.
