JUDGMENT

[1] There are three appeals before us, two by Lembaga Lebuhraya Malaysia [LLM] and the third by MMC Tepat Teknik Sdn Bhd [MMC Tepat Teknik]. All three appeals arise out of the compulsory acquisition of lands belonging to MMC Tepat Teknik under the Land Acquisition Act 1960 [Act 486]. After full consideration of the issues, we unanimously allowed the appeals by LLM and dismissed the appeal by MMC Tepat Teknik.

The Compulsory Acquisition

[2] MMC Tepat Teknik [name changed with effect 10 October 2014 from Tepat Teknik Sdn Bhd], owned three adjacent and contiguous pieces of property, namely Lots 1604, 1605 and 1608 in the District of Klang, Selangor. MMC Tepat Teknik is in the business of manufacturing large steel fabricated equipment and parts for use in various industries. For this purpose, it located its heavy steel fabrication plant on the subject lots. The plant comprising 3 buildings, 1 office block, a store and a guardhouse, has been there for some 25- odd years before the subject lots were compulsorily acquired.
