Iskandar Malaysia considering 500km MRT

http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/m...ing-500km-mrt/

KUALA LUMPUR, April 12 — The Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA) is considering a 500km Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) system for south Johor.

The line will be in their administered Iskandar Malaysia region — the special development zone across neighbouring Singapore.

IRDA chief executive Ismail Ibrahim said today if the proposal is accepted, the Iskandar Malaysia MRT will be developed in six phases with the first phase completed by 2020.

He added that if the proposal is accepted, an announcement will be made in May after a scheduled leadership meeting.

“An announcement will be made on which system to do first, for improved connectivity we are looking at MRT,” said Ismail.

Putrajaya has already approved a 51km-long MRT in the Klang Valley which is scheduled to begin construction after a July 8 ground-breaking ceremony.

But opposition lawmakers have argued about the scant details of the the Klang Valley MRT and want the authorities to consider alternative public transport systems.

The first line between Sungai Buloh and Kajang is part of three lines in the Klang Valley that were initially costed at RM36.6 billion but the authorities now expect the price to be higher as the project proponents did not include land acquisition and rolling stock costs.

The government-owned Syarikat Prasarana Nasional Berhad (SPNB) will own the Klang Valley MRT apart from the current Light Rail Transit (LRT) and monorail systems in Kuala Lumpur.

The current LRT and monorail network is still operating at a loss as SPNB looks to generate revenue to pay a RM10 billion bond used to acquire the transport systems.

Ismail said that IRDA was also considering putting a Bus Rapid Transit system in place in addition to the MRT.

The IRDA chief declined to comment on the cost but said that the authority was looking to see how the MRT could integrate with Singapore’s own system.

MRT di Iskandar Malaysia 2020
Oleh FAIRUS KASSIM 12 April 2011
http://www.utusan.com.my/utusan/info...i&pg=ek_03.htm


Ismail Ibrahim (kanan) bersama Yazid Jaafar pada sidang
akhbar sempena Invest Malaysia 2011 semalam.


KUALA LUMPUR 12 April - Penduduk Johor akan menikmati kemudahan perkhidmatan Transit Aliran Massa (MRT) pada 2020 yang bakal dibangunkan di Iskandar Malaysia.

Projek sejauh 500 kilometer berkenaan akan dilaksanakan dalam enam fasa bermula di bandar raya Johor Bahru sebagai stesen utama sebelum dikembangkan ke seluruh wilayah Iskandar Malaysia.

Ketua Eksekutif Pihak Berkuasa Pembangunan Iskandar (IRDA), Ismail Ibrahim berkata, perlaksanaan sistem MRT sangat penting dan seiring dengan pembangunan ekonomi di wilayah Iskandar Malaysia.

Katanya, selain MRT, IRDA juga mempunyai pilihan lain seperti perkhidmatan kereta api laju, keretapi berkembar dan transit aliran ringan (LRT), namun MRT menjadi keutamaan ketika ini berdasarkan keberkesanannya.

''Perkara ini sebahagian daripada projek pembangunan sistem perhubungan Iskandar Malaysia dan akan dibawa ke mesyuarat Ahli Pihak Berkuasa (MOA) pada Mei depan.

''Kami jangkakan rakyat Johor akan menikmati perkhidmatan MRT dalam tempoh sepuluh tahun atau lebih cepat dari itu.

''Kami juga akan mengadakan rundingan dengan kerajaan Singapura untuk menyambung laluan MRT ke negara berkenaan. Jika rundingan berjaya, projek berkenaan akan bergerak serentak dengan projek tadi,'' katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian pada sidang akhbar Persidangan Invest Malaysia, di sini hari ini.

Beliau berkata, antara perancangan lain yang sedang dirangka adalah memperkenalkan sistem pengawasan imigresen sehala sahaja bagi penduduk Malaysia dan Singapura.

''Ketika ini, pengguna terpaksa berhadapan dengan dua pusat Imigresen, Kastam dan Kuarantin (CIQ) iaitu di Malaysia dan Singapura.

''Perkhidmatan CIQ sehala ini akan menggabungkan pihak berkuasa kedua-dua negara dalam satu tempat dan ini mampu mengurangkan trafik sebanyak 50 peratus,'' jelasnya.

Mengulas mengenai prestasi pelaburan di wilayah Iskandar Malaysia, Ismail berkata, ketika ini wilayah berkenaan telah menerima pelaburan sebanyak RM69.48 billion iaitu hampir dengan sasaran tahun ini iaitu sebanyak RM70 bilion.

MRT proposed for Iskandar Malaysia

http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...&if_height=593

KUALA LUMPUR: A plan to build a 500km mass rapid transit (MRT) system has been proposed to improve the connectivity within Iskandar Malaysia, according to Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA) chief executive Ismail Ibrahim.

“The MRT project will be developed in five or six phases. The first phase is expected to be completed by 2020. The announcement will be made by the Prime Minister if the proposal is accepted,” he said at the Invest Malaysia 2011 yesterday.

He said IRDA planned to build a bus rapid transit (BRT) first and expanded to MRT after that. However, it is still in the planning stage.

“The proposed BRT is about 400km with various phases. The first phase will be about 40km. Connectivity must be established within Iskandar as well as how Iskandar is connected with the outline region, including our neighbour,” he said.

On whether Singapore would extend its MRT to Johor Bahru, Ismail said: “There is actually no discussion with regard to extending the MRT from Singapore to Johor but there has been discussion about wanting to look at connectivity between Johor Baru and Singapore by use of rail, which could be an MRT system. It might so happen to be the same system or it might be a dedicated system.”

IRDA is the regulatory authority mandated to plan, promote and facilitate the development of Iskandar Malaysia into a strong and sustainable metropolis of international standing.

Ismail said Iskandar Malaysia was targeted to attract investments of RM13bil annually into the region, with a target of RM73bil in the next five years following the completion of key infrastructure education and tourism projects by 2012.

He said Iskandar Malaysia had recorded a total investment of RM69.4bil as at December last year and the total had grown to RM73bil as at the first quarter of this year.

“Iskandar Malaysia has moved into Phase 2 of Iskandar Malaysia Compre-hensive Development Plan (2006-2025) with the completion and deliveries of major infrastructure and iconic investment projects, recording RM28bil at end of 2010,” he said.

Meanwhile, Iskandar Investment Bhd chief executive officer Datuk Syed Mohamed Syed Ibrahim said the launch of Iskandar Investment's pioneering catalytic developments beginning 2011 would accelerate the inflow of investment in projects and human capital development into Iskandar Malaysia.

“This will contribute not only to Malaysia's expected growth of 5% to 6% in real gross domestic product in 2011, but also support our nation's aspirations of becoming a high income nation by 2020,” he said in a statement.

Sungai Segget clean-up to beautify city
Story and photos By ZAZALI MUSA
zaza@thestar.com.my

http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...sec=southneast

JOHOR BARU: Work on the first phase of the Johor Baru City Centre transformation plan (JBCCTP) will start in the middle of this year with the tearing down of the culverts that covered Sungai Segget along Jalan Wong Ah Fook.

Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman said the Federal Government had allocated RM200mil for the projects, which include the river clean-up, as part of the RM1.8bil allocation under the JBCCTP.

‘The Sungai Segget cleaning up project would involve three parts - improving the sewerage system, flood mitigation and beautification of the river stretch and its surrounding areas.”

The river will flow through:The currently covered stretch of Sungai Segget which flows along Jalan Wong Ah Fook in downtown Johor Baru will be opened up under the RM200mil beautification project of the river.

He said the authorities had already selected the two designs for the Sungai Segget river project.

He said tenders would also be called two months from now for the sewerage improvement system.

Abdul Ghani said this at the groundbreaking ceremony of a new RM9mil Jalan Kolam Ayer Mosque – the first eco-friendly mosque in Johor which uses solar power to power the building and rainwater for ablations.

Sungai Segget, is one of the dirtiest rivers in the country, which flows along Jalan Wong Ah Fook in the Johor Baru city downtown area. Several years ago, the Government spent RM6mil to cover the river with culverts and built pedestrian walkway on it.

Abdul Ghani said the beautification of Sungai Segget would start from a ramp near Hotel Tropical Inn, which would be converted into an iconic open space up to Jalan Tun Seri Lanang.

“The whole 2km stretch will be known as JB Wave and Jalan Wong Ah Fook will be turned into a non-vehicle zone as we want pedestrians and visitors to enjoy the new Sungai Segget,’’ he said

He said property owners within the Johor Baru city centre where the transformation plan would take place had given their fully cooperation as they knew the benefits the project would bring to the area.

The JBCCTP covers 485.62ha area within the Johor Baru city central area including Bukit Timbalan, the former sites of the Lumba Kuda and Bukit Chagar low-cost flats, Bukit Chagar Customs, Immigration and Quarantine Complex and Tanjung Puteri Lorry Customs Complex.

Under the 10th Malaysia Plan (10MP), the Government has allocated RM1.8bil to rehabilitate and transform Johor Baru city into a vibrant city in line with its status as one of the five flagship development zones in Iskandar Malaysia.

The country’s first economic growth corridor launched on Nov 4, 2006, spanning 2,217 sq km in the southernmost part of Johor divided into five zones – the other four zones are Nusajaya, Eastern Gate Development, Western Gate Development and Senai-Kulai.


THE NAME JB WAVE... sound yucky right..

SKANDAR DEVELOPMENT ICON AND LANDSCAPE
status: competition

Neuformation collaborated with Mecanoo of the Netherlands to participate in a competition to produce a design concept of an Icon tower and Park located within the Bandar Nusajaya Zone, a major component of Iskandar Development Region ( IDR ).
A Masterplan was conceptualised for the proposed green-field area for a development with an emphasis on an architectonic proposal, the development of a park, green and sticky spaces and purpose built buildings in a harmonious geometric configuration.
The Park will become the ICONIC landmark of the IDR, and, important social and economic issues will impact and shape the entire development to ensure sustainability.

JOHOR CULTURAL PARK
status: competition







The metaphor of the lily pond is used in our design of the Johor Cultural Park to imply a malleable environment, in which the people of Johor regardless of their different cultures and religion, are able to identify as a cultural icon for all.

Multiple roof canopies with skylight form a sheath sheltering pods containing main programs.



A wave-form perimeter wall of shimmering glass forms a transparent enclosure which is punctuated to draw visitors into this seamless environment. Once inside, visitors encounter these pods housing the main theatre, concert hall, theatre studios and a craft centre.

Iskandar Malaysia to see RM73.3 billion in investments by 2016
by Justin Yap Posted on April 13, 2011, Wednesday
http://www.theborneopost.com/?p=119021


From left to right IRDA head of economic and business Mohd Yazid Ja'afar,
Ismail and IDR Resorts Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Muhammad Zainal Ashikin

KUCHING: The main southern development corridor in Johor, Iskandar Malaysia targets to attract investments of RM13 billion annually into the region, with a target of RM73.3 billion in the next five years following the completion of key infrastructure, education and tourism projects by 2012.

As of December 31, 2010, Iskandar Malaysia recorded a total of RM69.43 billion in investment. The development corridor targeted to reach a total investment of RM383 billion by 2025, said Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA) chief executive officer Ismail Ibrahim during an Invest Malaysia 2011 press conference.

IRDA is the regulatory authority mandated to plan, promote, facilitate the development of Iskandar Malaysia into a strong and sustainable metropolis of international standing.

Iskandar Investment Bhd, on the other hand, is a strategic catalyst of change, working closely with the authorities, other developers and investment partners in the region to achieve Iskandar Malaysia’s vision of becoming a sustainable metropolis international standing by 2025.

Moving forward, IRDA and Iskandar Investment would continue to seek ways to extend the benefits of these investments to community through wealth distribution as well as skills and knowledge exchange.

Ismail said Iskandar Malaysia had moved into phase two of Iskandar Malaysia Comprehensive Plan (2006-2025) with the completion and deliveries of major infrastructure and iconic investment projects recording RM28 billion realised end of 2010.

“Iskandar Malaysia has earmarked this major tranche of performance as the ‘Tipping Point’ critical in the completion of the RMK9 infrastructure projects and the private sector project delivery of Newcastle Medical University Malaysia at EduCity, the opening of the Johor Premium Class in Kulai and the commencement of new higher educational institutional in Pasir Gudang.”

He said in terms of connectivity, of the total eight road projects, three have been completed and five more were well on their way towards completion, adding connectivity infrastructure was one of the many important elements to help support the tipping point.

“The spillover effect to tourism, business and others will also be significant and I urge investors to see this potential and grab the opportunity now,” said Ismail, adding a total of 20,000 employment opportunities had been created to date.

Iskandar Investment chief executive officer Datuk Syed Mohamed Syed Ibrahim added, “The launch of Iskandar Investment’s pioneering catalytic development beginning 2011 will accelerate the inflow of investment in projects and human capital development into Iskandar Malaysia.

“This will contribute not only to Malaysia’s expected growth of five per cent to six per cent in real gross domestic product in 2011, but also support our nation’s aspiration of becoming a high-income nation by 2020.”

Iskandar Investment would kick-start the first phase of developments in Iskandar Malaysia with the launch of the Netherland Maritime Institute of Technology (NMIT) intial campus in Kotaraya Johor Bahru as well as the Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia (NUMed) Campus in EduCity@Iskandar by the fourth quarter of this year.

Meanwhile, Genting’s Chelsea Johor Premium outlet in November and the Coastal Highway linking the Johor City Centre to Medini were scheduled for completion by the end of the year. Iskandar Malaysia was also responsible for the completion of infrastructure work in 2,200 acre Medini which include establishing roads, sewage systems, street lighting and pedestrian walks.

2012 would see Medini Lifestyle came alive with the grand opening of Legoland Malaysia, the first Legoland theme park in Asia, together with a lifestyle retail mall, commercial developments and office buildings. The theme park was expected to receive approximately one million visitors in its first year of operations alone.

Iskandar Investment’s catalytic projects would complement other developments in Iskandar malaysia including residential and tourism projects such as East Ledang, Horizon Hills, Trader Hotel Putri Harbour and KidZania Johor indoor educational theme park.
