If really want to build nice skybridge, DBKL can send a group of people to Hong Kong or Bangkok. They really build convenient and wide bridge. How the design look like doesn't matter, but must be pratical.

If possible, tunnel is a better option since KL is so hot.

For walkway, can our authority ban all motorcycles to be parked on pendestrian walkway? Forgot already, our authority also park on walkway! lol!

KL To Have Covered Walkways
January 28, 2010 14:51 PM By Jumiati Rosli
http://www.bernama.com/bernama/v5/ne....php?id=471822

A short interview with the Federal Territories and Urban Well-being Minister in conjunction with the Federal Territories Day

PUTRAJAYA, Jan 28 (Bernama) -- Kuala Lumpur will be adding a network of covered walkways to its landscape starting with the walkway connecting Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) and the nearby Bukit Bintang commercial district.

The Ministry of Federal Territories and Urban Well-being in ensuring an extensive network of walkways will help to integrate the walkways provided by private developers so that all buildings in the city centre will be connected by such walkways in the future.

Its minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin noted that the Kuala Lumpur City Hall is planning out the walkways and for a start Petronas would allocate about RM100 million to build the covered walkways around KLCC.

While admitting that Kuala Lumpur at present is not pedestrian friendly compared with other cities, he hoped that the proposed walkways would help reduce the number of cars on the road.

He pointed out that countries like Hong Kong has covered walkways and they have proven to be effective in encouraging pedestrian traffic movement.

"Citizens in other big cities prefer to walk. But here things are different partly because of the sun and the rain but the attitudes will change when there is comfortable covered walkway with fans for example," he said during an exclusive interview with Bernama.

In future, the Ministry will stipulate that developers provide covered walkways in their development plan.

Meanwhile in Putrajaya, efforts are being taken to overcome shortage of parking spaces.

For a start, a campaign to encourage the public to take the bus will be implemented along with Putrajaya Corporation's move to add 70 more buses in stages.

Raja Nong Chik pointed out that according to Putrajaya's initial plan, 70 per cent of the people living there were suppose to use public transportation and the rest their own vehicles.

"I was informed that previously the parking spaces were meant for visitors only. But because the civil servants started using their own vehicles, now there is not only shortage of parking space but also traffic jams," he said .

He said currently the bus services provided for the public is underutilised and even those using them in Putrajaya are foreigners.

"Not many are using them except the foreigners and it is sad that the public failed to appreciate the facility provided by the government," he said.

Raja Nong Chik said those living in Putrajaya prefer to use their own vehicles as there is no school bus service in the vicinity.

To overcome this problem, Putrajaya Corporation is looking into the possibility of converting several of the existing buses into school buses.

Another of the facility that is not fully utilised in Putrajaya is the "Park and Ride". Only a small number of people is using the service, especially those working in Putrajaya but not staying there.

The "Park & Ride" concept was introduced in Putrajaya in 2007 to overcome traffic congestion and the lack of parking spaces there.

Public walkways to offer more convenience
By BAVANI M
bavanim@thestar.com.my


PEDESTRIANS in Kuala Lumpur can soon enjoy a convenient, safe, hassle-free and pleasant walking experience once Kuala Lumpur City Hall’s public walkway project is complete.

Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin said the project, which is part of his ministry’s KPI, will probably see some walkways being air-conditioned and equipped with ventilation systems.

The project, which is expected to take off any time now, will see at least some of the missing links in the KLCC area being connected.

Nong Chik said studies had shown that in developed cities like the United States where the pedestrian linkage system was good, the people tended to lead healthier lifestyles.

“We need a similar walkway system because it will turn the KL City Centre into a Walkable City and help ease congestion.

“It will also encourage people to start walking instead of driving to work,” he said.

Nong Chik said public transport was one of the six National Key Result Areas (NKRAs) that are being looked into by the government and the target was to increase public transport usage from the current 16% to 25% by 2012.

“The public walkway system is one way of addressing this. Hopefully, when we have a fully integrated system in place, more people will opt to use public transport,” he said.

Meanwhile, Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Fuad Ismail said he would be meeting up with consultants from Petronas, Prasarana and other private corporations who are keen to work with the DBKL on the walkway project next month.

He said a tender would be called after the meeting.

“There are four components to this project and the first one involves Prasarana building walkways and linkages connecting all their LRT stations and some bus stops.

“We have already received the plans for this and will kick-start the project soon,” he said.

“The next step will involve walkways linking the Petronas Twin Towers to areas like Impiana Hotel and its surrounding areas,” Fuad said, adding that RM100mil had been allocated for this.

Thirdly, Fuad said he would be approaching private companies in the city to complement the system further.

The mayor said he wanted to encourage the private sector to work with the DBKL as it would be a win-win situation for everyone.

Apart from the walkway project, the Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Ministry’s KPI this year also includes improving and enhancing the sale of PPR low-cost housing, ensuring that the Puduraya upgrade is completed before the Hari Raya celebrations and resolving the illegal hawker problem in the city.

Nong Chik, who was speaking at the launch of the Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing ministry’s strategic plan 2010-2014, also said there were some new challenges he must tackle this year

“After one year in office and based on last year’s work, everything seems to be good and my boss is happy. But there are plenty of new challenges ahead and we’ll take it one step at a time as we go along,” he said.

KUALA LUMPUR: Construction on the elevated and covered pedestrian walkways, which will connect some light-rail and monorail stations (LRT) in the city, are expected to start soon and will be completed by year-end.
The LRT stations are Plaza Rakyat, Sultan Ismail, Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC), Bandaraya and Pasar Seni, and the Hang Tuah monorail station.

City Hall road transport department director Dr Leong Siew Mun said Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd, which runs the light rail services, had already appointed the contractors for the project which involves an integrated network system of linking pedestrian walkways to LRT and monorail stations.


"The elevated and covered walkways will connect the stations at Plaza Rakyat to the Cahaya Suria Building in Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock; PWTC to Putra bus station; Sultan Ismail to Medan Tuanku monorail station; and Bandaraya to City Hall headquarters in Jalan Raja Laut, and Hang Tuah monorail station to Masjid Al-Bukhary," he said in presentation at the KL Draft Plan 2020 workshop yesterday.

RM30m for seamless walkways
2010/07/21
By Dawn Chan
streets@nstp.com.myShare | KUALA LUMPUR: Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd (Prasarana) is investing RM30 million to build covered and elevated walkways to connect commuters and the public to light rail and monorail stations in key areas in the city.
This was unveiled in a briefing held at its headquarters on Tuesday where Prasarana said it had identified five key stations that would be linked to high-density commercial buildings and also between stations.

The stations with elevated walkways with a standard height of 5.4m are PWTC and Plaza Rakyat while the Bandaraya and Hang Tuah monorail stations will have covered walkways. The Pasar Seni station will have both elevated and covered walkways.


To be completed by middle of next year2011, the elevated walkway at the PWTC LRT station will connect the public to Jalan Tun Ismail as well as The Mall. From the Plaza Rakyat LRT, pedestrians will be connected to the Cahaya Suria building while the Pasar Seni LRT station will be connected to the Kuala Lumpur KTM Komuter station.


The covered walkways will link the Bandaraya LRT station to the City Hall building, while Pasar Seni LRT station to Pasar Seni building, and Jalan Hang Tuah monorail station to Masjid Al-Bukhary.

A Prasarana spokesman said the initial construction work at the Pasar Seni and Bandaraya LRT stations, which began on July 15, was 25 per cent completed.


Next on the list would be the Plaza Rakyat and PWTC stations, followed by the rest of the areas.

The project is a joint effort by City Hall and Prasarana. and they have been in talks since early this year.

Among the design highlights to look out for is at the Plaza Rakyat LRT station where a rebana ubi-inspired beacon tower would be built to serve as the main junction that links to Menara Maybank and the City Hall building in Jalan Raja Laut.


The spokesman said it was Mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Fuad Ismail’s vision that the beacon tower wouldto be built with the aim of turn the area into a lively environment.

The facilities provided at the beacon tower are an escalator, lifts and public toilets. It will also have a police beat base.

The width for the elevated walkways are 3mthree metres while the covered walkways would be 2mtwo metres. The welfare of the disabled group will also be taken into consideration as tactiles will be incorporated into the design.

At the Jalan Hang Tuah monorail station, which will be linked to Masjid Al-Bukhary, a lovely Islamic design would be incorporated.

“All of these will be completed by the middle of next year. This is an added value service to our commuters and part of the overall efforts by the government to increase the ridership from 12 per cent to 25 per cent.

“Hopefully, with these linkages, more people will use public transport,” said the spokesman.

Prasarana said it was also looking into working with building owners on the possibility of linking their properties with the elevated walkways to provide a seamless connection for the public.

For example, the PWTC LRT station does not only will be linked the public to the KTM Komuter station in Jalan Kuching, but also offers a direct link to The Mall and also to the PWTC Convention Centre, while the Pasar Seni LRT connects to the concourse of the Kuala Lumpur KTM Komuter station.

The elevated walkways, said the spokesman, will be well lit with good ventilation and its safety features enhancedwhich would be enhanced with the deployment of Prasarana’s auxiliary police.

Existing bus stops along the covered walkways will also be upgraded to match the surrounding designs.

The structures for the elevated walkways are steel beams with reinforced concrete and clear solid polycarbonate as its roofing.

One of the complications in the fast-track project would be tackling the obstacles of existing trees during construction as City Hall has a strict policy against the indiscriminate cutting of trees.

“We have to work our way around the trees and minimise the cutting of trees. We won’t be felling them to make way for the project but maybe just trimming its branches,” the spokesman said.

Cool RM10 Million Covered Pedestrian Walkway For Strategic Locations
September 06, 2010 23:29 PM
http://www.bernama.com.my/bernama/v5....php?id=526665

KUALA LUMPUR Sept 6 (Bernama)-- The completion of a 142-metre air-conditioned elevated pedestrian walkway will enable locals and tourists to arrive at strategic destinations in the city, without having to sweat under the heat.

Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Fuad Ismail said, the construction of the RM10 million facility which started in April this year was scheduled to be completed in February 2011.

"I hope when this facilities are completed next year, more and more local and foreign tourist will use the pedestrian walkway to go to other strategic locations in the city such as KLCC (Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre) and Bukit Bintang," he said after visiting work in progress at the project site situated on the KLCC ground floor, here Monday.

The development of the facilities was part of the government's initiative to encourage more people to use public transportation systems, he said.

Petronas contributed RM100 million towards the development of the two-phase facilities to support the government's plans of promoting and encouraging the growth of tourism.

KLCC (Holdings) Sdn Bhd (KLCCH), a wholly owned subsidiary of Petronas was tasked to manage the allocation jointly with DBKL as the main project coordinator for the pedestrian walkways in the city.

Fuad said the second phase of the project would link Impiana Hotel to Jalan Raja Chulan and expected to be completed next year.

Meanwhile, Fuad said Syarikat Prasarana Sdn Bhd (SPNB) would invest about RM60 million to build six other pedestrian walkways near public transportation networks such as monorail and LRT.

The six pedestrian walkways would be constructed at Pasar Seni LRT-Dayabumi, DBKL main building-Sogo Shopping Complex, KTM Commuter-Bandaraya LRT, Jalan Sultan Ismail-Maju Junction- Medan Tunku Monorail station, Plaza Rakyat- Puduraya terminal bus station and Albukhari Mosque-Hang Tuah LRT station.
