New ferry service between M’sia and S’pore by end 2013, says Kong
By MOHD FARHAAN SHAH Updated: Tuesday July 31, 2012 MYT 2:46:45 PM
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...&if_height=202

KOTA TINGGI: A new ferry service between Malaysia and Singapore will be introduced by end 2013 linking Tanjung Belungkur and Changi, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha on Tuesday.

The Roll-On Roll-Off (RORO) service for vehicles and passengers would make travel between both countries, he said adding that the distance between the two ferry terminals was quite short.

This would be the first modern RORO service between the two countries, he said.

"The RORO service is similar to the one in Penang. Johor is being developed, with many mega projects, especially in southern Johor such as in Pengerang or in Mersing," he said.

Joint study on M'sia-S'pore Rapid Transit System

JOHOR BARU: Malaysia and Singapore will make the decision on the Malaysia-Singapore Rapid Transit System (RTS) link project next year.

Iskandar Regional Development Authority (Irda) chief executive officer Datuk Ismail Ibrahim said authorities in both countries were currently undertaking a phase one joint-engineering study.

He said the study, among others, looked into the various alignments, customs, immigration and quarantine-related matters and multimodal terminal locations and other critical perimeters.

“Once it is completed, both governments will make a decision on the preferred alignments,’’ Ismail told StarBiz yesterday.

He said there would probably be two options for the RTS project linking Johor Baru and Singapore – for the trains to run above ground (grate) or via undersea tunnel.

Ismail said if the latter was chosen for the project, there would also be a choice on whether there it would be a sunken tunnel or a bore tunnel.

He said the undersea tunnel was more favourable as it would have minimal disruptions to the traffic movements during construction period as the project would be located nearby to the CIQ complexes of Malaysia and Singapore.

“The final outcome on what kind of link will be built will all depend on the recommendations of the study for the consideration of the two governments involved as well as costing,’’ added Ismail.

In May this year, Malaysia and Singapore had announced that both countries would undertake a project to improve connectivity by opening a RTS from Singapore to Johor Baru by 2018.

The joint Singapore-Malaysia statement said that the terminating stations of the link would be in the city of JB Sentral here and in the vicinity of Republic Polytechnic in Singapore.

It added that the RTS link was targeted to be up and operating by 2018 and have a co-located (CIQ) facility in Singapore and co-located CIQ facility here so that commuters need to clear immigration only once for each way of travel.


Separately, Ismail said the implementation of the intercity rail project in Iskandar Malaysia was still being evaluated to ensure the feasibility of the project.

He said so far, two parties had submitted their proposals.

However, more details were needed before a firm decision could be made.

“Nevertheless, Irda noted the high implementation cost for the project while coverage is somewhat limited compared with other public transport system,’’ said Ismail.

RM450j untuk bangunkan BRT

RM450j untuk bangunkan BRT
NOR AZURA MD AMIN
20 September 2012

PONTIAN- Sebanyak RM450 juta diperlukan bagi membangunkan sistem Bas Rapid Transit ( BRT) di sistem pengangkutan bas berbentuk trem di Iskandar Malaysia.

Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Perumahan, Kerajaan Tempatan, Kerja Raya dan Kemudahan Awam Negeri Johor, Dato Ahmad Zahri Jamil berkata, Kerajaan Negeri berharap peruntukan terbabit akan diluluskan dalam Bajet 2013 yang akan datang ini.

“Sebagai permulaan, untuk fasa pertama BRT ini akan menggunakan tiga laluan di tiga koridor Iskandar Malaysia melibatkan laluan sejauh kira-kira 80 kilometer,” katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian dalam sidang media selepas majlis pelancaran perkhidmatan Bas Iskandar Malaysia (BIM) di Pontian dan kempen Keselamatan Jalan Raya bersama BIM di Dewan Jubli Intan, Pontian disini, pagi semalam.

Hadir sama, Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (Adun) Pekan Nenas, Tang Nai Soon; Ketua Eksekutif Pihak Berkuasa Wilayah Pembangunan Iskandar, Datuk Ismail Ibrahim; Pegawai Daerah Pontian, Muji Salimon; dan Yang Dipertua Majlis Daerah Pontian, Miswan Yunus.

Justeru itu, pihaknya berharap agar Suruhanjaya Pengangkutan Awam Darat (SPAD) dapat membantu Kerajaan Negeri merealisasikan sistem BRT ini yang dijangka akan memakan masa kira-kira lima tahun untuk dibangunkan.

Menurutnya, sistem BRT ini lebih murah berbanding sistem pengangkutan aliran transit sederhana yang memerlukan pembinaan jalan bertingkat dan juga terowong.

“Melalui BRT, laluan-laluan khas bas akan dibina yang akan memudahkan pergerakan bas di dalam kawasan Iskandar Malaysia,

“Apabila ia siap kelak, orang ramai tidak perlu menunggu lama untuk menaiki bas kerana pergerakan bas lebih pantas,” katanya.

Selain itu, kemudahan infrasuktur iaitu hentian bas dan juga terminal pengangkutan awam yang lebih canggih dan mesra alam turut akan dibina bersama sistem BRT ini.

“Sistem ini sudah lama digunakan di negara-negara maju dan amat berkesan dalam menangani masalah kesesakan lalu lintas, “katanya.

Dalam pada itu, sebanyak 2.8 juta penumpang telah menggunakan perkhidmatan Bas Iskandar Malaysia ( BIM) sehingga Julai tahun ini.

“Satu perkembangan yang amat baik yang membuktikan keberkesanan perkhidmatan BIM sejak ia mula dilancarkan dua tahun yang lepas.

“Justeru kerajaan mengambil pendekatan menambah laluan-laluan baru termasuk di beberapa kawasan di daerah Pontian,” katanya.

Bermula di Terminal Pengangkutan Awam Pontian Baru, bas-bas Iskandar Malaysia ini akan melalui Jalan Pontian, Pontian Besar, Jalan Wan Husin, Jalan Sekolah Arab, Lebuhraya Skudai Pontian melibatkan laluan Kampung Kelapa, Kampung Sri Bunian, Kampung Cina, Kampung Parit Kasim, Batu 29 dan Batu 28), dan Pekan Nenas melibatkan laluan kampung Sawah

20 more buses to serve Iskandar Malaysia
By MOHD FAHMI MOHD YUSOF |24 September 2012 | last updated at 01:24AM
http://www.nst.com.my/streets/johor/...aysia-1.147776

MEETING NEEDS:They will ply 10 new routes following increase in demand

THE state government will add another 20 buses for 10 new routes in Iskandar Malaysia, following an increase in demand for public transport in the new growth area.

Since the Iskandar Malaysia bus service commenced in 2010, it has served 2.8 million passengers. About one million passengers enjoyed the bus service in the first year of operations, followed by another 1.8 million the following year.

At present, there are 34 Iskandar Malaysia buses plying 17 routes in the growth region.

Iskandar Regional Development Authority chief executive, Datuk Ismail Ibrahim, gave his assurance that all Iskandar Malaysia bus services are of high quality and will adhere strictly to schedule.

“We will not compromise on safety either. Following the good response and constructive feedback from passengers, we plan to open more social routes,” he said.

“From only 17 such routes in 2010, we will add another 10 this year, making it a total of 27 using 54 buses.”

Ismail was speaking at a road-safety campaign with Iskandar Malaysia bus operators at Dewan Jubli Sultan Ibrahim, here, recently. Present was state Housing, Local Government, Public Works and Utilities Committee chairman, Datuk Ahmad Zahri Jamil.

Ismail hoped the campaign will help to create awareness on road safety in the society, especially among students, and also concerning vandalism inflicted on public transport.

Zahri said the state needed about RM450 million to develop the Rapid Transit Bus system in Iskandar Malaysia.

“The system is needed to promote the use of public transport and enhance the public transport network. This amount is considered low, as compared with the high cost needed to set up a mass rapid transit or even light rapid transit,” he said.

“This bus system is one of the state government’s efforts in enhancing the efficiency of the public transport network in Iskandar Malaysia.”

Irda's social service lauded
By Sim Bak Heng 28 September 2012 | last updated at 11:53PM
http://www.nst.com.my/streets/johor/...auded-1.149285

THE Iskandar Regional Development Authority (Irda) announced it will increase the number of buses under the Iskandar Malaysia Bus Service (IMBS) by another 20 to serve 10 new routes by the end of the year.

These additional buses and new routes will complement the existing 34 buses serving a total of 17 routes. The Johor government describes the IMBS as a social service.

What it means is that these buses are not serving profitable routes which have a high population density, but rather remote or new developing areas with little prospect of full passenger load.

A bus operator with a sound mind will avoid serving places with poor passenger volume, as this will mean folding their business much earlier.

This explains why stage bus operators in Johor Baru are only serving popular routes, but abandoning the non-profit making ones.

Irda is aware of the problem and launched the bus service in 2010, with the hope that the social routes will complement the popular routes covered by stage bus operators.

This, it hopes, will build an extensive bus network which covers the whole of Iskandar Malaysia.

IMBS is actually operated by local bus operators with subsidies from Irda as incentive for them to run the routes.

Irda's efforts should be lauded, as it reflects what a caring institution is all about.

A well-linked public transport network is important as Iskandar Malaysia is moving forward to have a rapid transit system linking the region and Singapore.

Years ago, I heard of complaints about new settlements which were not served by public buses.

They did not know who they should forward their complaints to.

Not all settlements have many rich folk living there. There are bound to have middle- and lower-income people who have to rely on public buses to travel as not everybody could afford to pay for taxi services.

IMBS, therefore, serves a noble purpose. If there are any complaints about the service, it is probably because of the small number of buses serving each route, which is two buses.

Because of the small number, waiting time is automatically longer, and this does not augur well among commuters, especially those who need to take a connecting bus to their respective destinations.

I have seen that most of the buses are empty most of the time.

Irda should look into the time-table of the existing routes to see if it is justified to increase the number of buses for each of the routes.

Remember, irregular bus service and long waiting time will scare away commuters, and this may ultimately defeat the purpose of having the bus service.

For IMBS which is only two years old, there is plenty of room for improvement.

Increasing the number of buses and routes are certainly the first step in the right direction.

They should have thought of this when they decided to build Nusa/Medini/Kota Iskandar so so far away. Now they are going to service these ghost towns with empty buses? Wow, we are a very rich country indeed.

Many interested in developing high-speed intra-city commuter train for Iskandar
By ZAZALI MUSA Monday November 19, 2012
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...&if_height=202



Ismail: ‘There is no exclusivity on the part of MCN and we do not deny other
interested parties from proposing the project to us.’


JOHOR BARU: The proposal to develop the intra-city commuter train (ICCT) service for Iskandar Malaysia is still open and interested parties are invited to submit their proposals on the project.

Iskandar Regional Development Authority (Irda) chief executive officer Datuk Ismail Ibrahim said there were no reasons to stop those interested in the project from doing so.

He said although Irda had received a proposal on the project by Metropolitan Commuter Network Sdn Bhd (MCN), the Federal Government had yet to make a decision on it.

“There is no exclusivity on the part of MCN and we do not deny other interested parties from proposing the project to us,” Ismail told StarBiz.

He said the high-speed train (HST) project has attracted many potential investors, and companies could submit their proposals for the intercity rail project in Iskandar Malaysia.

The feasibility study on the HST project will be completed by the end of the year and the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) will submit its findings on the project to the Government in the first quarter of 2013.

It will only take 80 minutes on the high-speed train from Kuala Lumpur to Johor Baru and 90 minutes to Singapore.

“We (Johor and Irda) have done our part to support the proposal, but supporting does not tantamount to agreeing to the project to be implemented in Iskandar Malaysia,” said Ismail.

He recalled last year when several newspapers had misquoted Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman, who is also Irda co-chairman, as saying that Johor had agreed to the MCN's project.

MCN is a joint-venture company between KUB Malaysia Bhd and Malaysia Masteel Works (KL) Bhd and the company had proposed to the Government to construct and operate the rail transit network in Iskandar Malaysia.

The company had proposed to develop the RM1.23bil rail network covering 100km to serve all the major suburbs in the country's first economic growth corridor.

Under the proposal, seven new stations will be built along the route together with 16 halts and the rail network will also include a shuttle service from JB Sentral in the city centre to Woodlands in Singapore.


Among the areas to be covered by the service are Nusajaya along with major developments such as Legoland Theme Park, EduCity, the Johor Premium Outlets and the Senai Hi-Tech Park.

The ICCT is expected to start operations by 2013, with total deployment of 19 three-car trains.

“The Johor state government is not the approving authority of the project as it comes under the purview of agencies in Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya,” said Ismail.

Johor and Irda supported the proposal by MCN as well as those from other companies as there is demand for the project.

Ismail pointed out that approval of the project had to be given by the Transport Ministry, the Finance Ministry, the Economic Planning Unit, the Public-Private Partnership Unit of the Prime Minster's Department and SPAD.

He said more details and review were needed by the approving parties before a decision could be made on the ICCT project to ensure its viability.

Ismail said other than supporting the proposal, Irda could not say more on the intercity rail transit network.

“Nevertheless, we noted the high implementation cost for the project while coverage is somewhat limited compared with the other public transport system,” he said.

Meanwhile, SPAD chairman Tan Sri Syed Hamid Syed Jaafar Albar had said in September that there was no study conducted on the ICCT project in Iskandar Malaysia.

“No study is as good as not having such a project in Iskandar Malaysia, but we always welcome those who are interested to send their proposals to us,” he said.

Staying connected on BeXTRA buses
By L. Suganya 08 March 2013| last updated at 09:11PM
http://www.nst.com.my/streets/johor/...buses-1.230530



A BeXTRA bus has fewer stops and comes with free Wi-Fi service.
Pic by Mohammad Shahril Basri Saali


THE sight of people glued to their smartphones, iPads or Notes whether they are walking along a busy road, attending a social gathering with friends and family or even in a business meeting is a common sight.

Although there are many arguments against this habit or need to be constantly connected, the fact remains that it has become a common, and to a certain extent, acceptable behaviour in today's society.

We live in a society that can be termed the "Google society" where every question, regardless of the complexity of it, is googled.

From the colour of the rainbow to the symptoms of diseases, schoolwork and research can be done from where you sit, as long as you have an Internet connection.

Even if we are not doing research, we still stay glued to the devices, only if to check Facebook and Twitter updates.

As such, the availability of free WiFi services is a definite draw to Generation X and Y, and even some of the baby boomers.

The announcement of Iskandar Malaysia Public Transport Corporation that 40 of the Transit Express Buses (BeXTRA) will be equipped with the wireless facilities, will probably be a big plus when one decides between driving and taking the public transport.

One of my main gripes with using the bus services is the long time spent sitting idly throughout the journey.

It seems like such a waste and let's face it, the data plan that we pay for every month to stay connected through our phones unfortunately do not work well on moving vehicles.

If the buses can help me stay connected and occupied throughout the journey, I would surely opt for the public transport which will definitely be cheaper and can save us the frustration of encountering drivers who do not signal before changing lanes, who create bottleneck congestion during traffic jams and double-parkers.

The people who will benefit from this service beginning June are those taking the buses that ply the routes to JB Sentral from Kulaijaya, Ulu Tiram, Skudai, Masai and Kota Masai.

The BeXTRA buses will also be stopping at lesser stops compare to the ordinary buses, thus making the journey shorter.

For instance, there are about 30 bus stops throughout the Kulaijaya-JB Sentral route. But for those taking the BeXTRA service, the number is expected to be reduced to eight.

Besides being a draw to the locals, the free Internet services will also be a big help to tourists.

Imagine getting into a bus and being able to find out what lies along the route and also being able to plan the next action.

It would also be good to stay connected to our loved ones back home and uploading the pictures from the previous destination before reaching the next one.

The BeXTRA buses will be offering a shorter route with free Internet connection. What could be better?

Hopefully, the effort will attract more people to rely on public transport and the services offered by other bus operators in the near future.

Long wait for good bus service
By Sim Bak Heng 20 March 2013| last updated at 08:28PM

THERE are RapidKL and RapidPenang. When will RapidJohor Baru begin operations in Johor Baru?

Commuters in Johor Baru have sprained their necks looking forward to a service that is showing no sign of arriving in the southern gateway to complement the existing public transport system.

Recently, Johor Bus Operators Association president G. Suchdev revealed that about 42 per cent of the 1,500 buses in Johor have stopped running in the last two years, and warned that the situation was not getting any better.

He attributed this big plunge in the number of buses to the loss of Malaysia drivers to retirement, death, and the greener pastures of Singapore.

This makes us wonder if Kuala Lumpur and Penang were also facing the same problem.

Such a big drop in the number of public buses does not augur well for the Johor government's efforts to encourage more to use public transport.

Fewer buses means a longer wait, and this does not go well with those who have to get to their workplace or school early in the morning.

At the bus stops, one will find no signboards with bus routes, bus intervals, and bus's expected time of arrival, like what can be seen in some foreign countries. Commuters have no idea when the next bus is due, and hence, how long they would have to wait.

In this fast-paced era, speed is everything. Nobody will tolerate a slow-moving bus that never follows the route schedule and does not have good seats and a functioning air-conditioning system.

It was recently reported that bus drivers in Singapore would be rewarded if they reached each bus stop on schedule.

This is the type of efficiency Malaysian bus drivers may consider learning.
A friend of mine told me there was no bus service at his housing estate after 9pm.

The problem is that most bus operators are too lazy to fix notice boards at the bus stops to inform the passengers about the bus schedule.

Such notices are important. For example, the commuter should be informed of what time is the last bus. It is heartless to let someone wait indefinitely at a bus stop, all the while risking being robbed by snatch thieves.

Iskandar Malaysia Public Transport Corporation (PAIM) chief executive Mohd Gadaffie Abd Aziz said the corporation would implement the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) by the end of the year.

At present, it is consolidating the operations of the highly-anticipated BeXTRA buses, which promise fewer stops along the journey, and Bus Iskandar Malaysia, which is serving social routes or routes not served by other operators.

PAIM's move is laudable, but my advice is, implement the BRT fast and before the people give up on public transport.



The Trans Iskandar Bus offers schoolchildren a comfortable ride to school.



The Trans Iskandar Bus is launched to complement the existing public bus service in Iskandar Malaysia.

MASTEEL 60% joint venture company Metropolitan Commuter Network Sdn Bhd received green light from Ministry of Transport on Iskandar Malayasia Rail Project.

Also read from oriental daily today, Masteel received low interest loan from the federal government to carry out this project.

Finally. They mention it would be connected to Singapore MRT. I wonder if they mean the currently planned RTS or perhaps a link to East West Line at Tuas. Either way, its very good to hear.

Masteel & KUB's Iskandar - Singapore Rail Network

Look at this...

Quote:
Masteel boleh mula transit rel Iskandar Malaysia

2013/06/01 - 06:37:18 AM Cetak Emel Kawan

Malaysia Steel Works (KL) Bhd (Masteel) telah mendapat kebenaran Kementerian Pengangkutan untuk memulakan projek pembinaan rangkaian sistem transit kereta api antara bandar di Iskandar Malaysia.

Projek berkenaan yang sebelum ini dilaporkan membabitkan kos kira-kira RM1.23 bilion, akan dilaksanakan menerusi syarikat usaha sama Masteel dengan KUB Malaysia Bhd (KUB), Metropolitan Commuter Network Sdn Bhd.
Masteel menguasai 60 peratus kepentingan dalam syarikat usaha sama itu manakala KUB Malaysia sebanyak 40 peratus.

Pengarah Urusan dan Ketua Eksekutif Masteel, Datuk Seri Tai Hean Leng , berkata pihak berharap dapat memuktamadkan pembiayaan bagi projek berkenaan pada pertengahan tahun ini.

Beliau berkata, pihaknya sudah menamatkan mesyuarat dengan pelbagai badan kawal selia lain dengan jayanya dan semua pihak kini komited untuk melihat projek pembinaan rangkaian sistem transit kereta api itu berjaya dilaksanakan.

Permintaan meningkat

Permintaan yang semakin meningkat bagi infrastruktur pengangkutan sedia ada di wilayah Iskandar Malaysia membuatkan rangkaian komuter ini amat diperlukan bagi mengendalikan jumlah penumpang di dalam dan kawasan sekitar sebagai penyelesaian jangka panjang, katanya dalam satu kenyataan semalam.
Masteel mengadakan usaha sama strategik dengan KUB Malaysia pada 2011 bagi membangunkan dan menguruskan secara bersama sistem rel antara bandar sepanjang 100 kilometer dari Iskandar Malaysia ke Singapura.

Cadangan sistem rel itu adalah yang pertama di Johor, dan ia dijangka dapat mengurangkan masalah kesesakan di negeri itu. Sistem itu juga akan dihubungkan dengan laluan transit aliran massa (MRT) di Singapura.

Dalam perkembangan lain, Masteel berkata ia mencatatkan keuntungan bersih sebanyak RM3.55 juta pada suku pertama berakhir 31 Mac 2013, meningkat daripada kerugian RM4.88 juta yang dicatatkan pada suku yang sama tahun lalu.

Masteel gets nod for Iskandar-Singapore rail-link

Posted on 3 June 2013 - 05:36am
sunbiz@thesundaily.com

PETALING JAYA (June 3, 2013): Integrated steel manufacturer Malaysia Steel Works (KL) Bhd (Masteel) has received the green light to operate a 100km inter-city rail system from Iskandar Malaysia to Singapore.

Masteel's 60% joint venture company Metropolitan Commuter Network Sdn Bhd had received a letter from Ministry of Transport to confirm its agreement to the rail project in Iskandar Malaysia, according to a statement released by the group last Friday.

"The increasing demand on the existing transportation infrastructure in the rapidly-developing Iskandar Malaysia region makes this commuter network even more necessary and urgent to handle the passenger load in and around the area as a long-term solution.

We have concluded fruitful meetings with the various regulatory bodies thus far, and all parties remain committed to seeing this project through. We hope to finalize the funding by mid-2013, which will then pave the way for the next stage of development," Masteel managing director and CEO Datuk Seri Tai Hean Leng said in the statement.

The group had in 2011 entered into a joint venture with KUB Malaysia Bhd to jointly build and operate the rail system.

The proposed rail system will be the first in the state of Johor, to be linked to the Mass Rapid Transit line in Singapore.

Meanwhile, Masteel swung to a net profit of RM3.55 million in the first quarter ended 31 March 2013, compared to a RM4.88 million loss in the corresponding period just a year ago.

"While steel prices were dampened across the industry in 1Q13, we successfully recorded net profit due to lower production costs resulting from our efficient operations.

"Overall, the group expects to record satisfactory performance in the current year, contributed mainly by domestic demand, and the extensive implementation of many economic transformation programs by the government. Given our track record in being a reliable supplier for such projects, Masteel is set to play a key role in facilitating this domestic growth," Tai said.
Question time.

1. Let's look at the pricetags of Double Tracking and Electrification projects around the country.

completion in 1995. Klang Valley (150km) RM 2 billion
2007. Rawang - Ipoh (147km) RM 4.5 billion
2011. Sentul - Batu Caves (7km) RM 500 million
2014. Seremban - Gemas (102km) RM 3.5 billion
2014. Ipoh - Padang Besar (329km) RM 14 billion

While the Iskandar - Singapore project covering 100km, much of the area not even served with existing single track, is estimated to cost only RM 1.23 billion? The construction must be very cost effective.

2. By the way, I didn't realise that projects can kick start without public consultation? Both LRT extension and MRT SBK line had theirs, what about this Masteel and KUB project? Also, what is the Umno holding company KUB's contribution in this project? Why never mentioned in the news? KUB is already involved in hotels, beach resorts, communication, information, as well as A&W fastfood business...

3. KTM land ends in Woodlands Train Checkpoint, nowhere near any current or future MRT stations of North South Line, Thomson Line or JB RTS Line. So how to connect to MRT?

Firstly, majority of the land is already available and there won't be much/any tunneling necessary which normally beefs up costs. According to my predictions, the entire project will be actually confined to current KTM tracks (as their length is about 100km in the city, between Tanjung Langsat/Tanjung Pelapas and JB Sentral/Senai). This could be a factor. Indeed though, looks rather cheap still.

Regarding the 'MRT link,' I suppose they either mean the upcoming RTS between Woodlands and JB or a new link to Tuas - which is going to get its own MRT station right next to the Second Link in a couple of years.
