[MAL] Malaysia | road infrastructure • Lebuh raya

Wi-Fi access at R&R spots on highway


TAPAH: If you are travelling along the North-South Expressway and need access to the Internet, look no further than the rest and recreation (R&Rs) areas at the Sungai Buloh overhead bridge restaurant, Tapah, Sungai Perak and Gunung Semanggol. These are the hotspots for wireless connection for Internet access from laptops, personal digital assistants and mobile phones.

The connection was made available yesterday by PLUS Expressway Berhad, which had invested RM600,000 to equip the four R&Rs with the facility.

PLUS chairman Tan Sri Mohd Sheriff Mohd Kassim said the wireless connection would be made available at the remaining 16 R&Rs before the end of the year, adding that PLUS would be investing another RM2.4 million for the venture.

"Internet access through wireless connection will soon be available at all the R&Rs, from Johor right up to Kedah.

"And it is free access, 24 hours daily. Everyone can use it," he said after the launch of the wireless connection at the R&R here yesterday by Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Tajol Rosli Ghazali.

Mohd Sheriff said the wireless connection was an additional facility PLUS would be providing by next year at all its R&Rs besides the usual amenities of a food court, restroom complex, surau and others.

The wireless connection provided by PLUS uses the Wi-Fi (wireless fidelity) technology with 2.4 GHz, which is Internet connectivity without the hassle of wires.

Access to the Wi-Fi network is usually available in all laptops, mobile phones and PDAs which are Wi-Fi enabled.

Meanwhile, Tajol Rosli said more than 80 per cent of areas in Perak would have Internet access via the wireless broadband connection before the end of next year.

Also present at the launch were Perak Multimedia and Human Resources Committee chairman Datuk Dr Zambry Kadir, PLUS Expressway managing director Datuk Idrose Mohamed and TM Net Sdn Bhd chief operating officer Michael Lai.

Linkedua

The Second Link refers to the Bridge that spans Malaysia and Singapore and the Malaysian highway that leads to (and from) the Bridge. It is known as the "Second" Link as it is the second land crossing built between the two countries after the Johor Causeway, which was constructed in the 1920s. The Second Link is formally known as the "Malaysia-Singapore Second Crossing", but sometimes called the "Second Crossing" or simply, its Malay equivalent, "Linkedua". It is officially numbered "E3" and is part of the Malaysian national network of highways.

The Second Link brings to you a faster, safer and easier passage to Malaysia or Singapore and back. It comprises a wide and modern bridge as well as stretches of wide and beautifully-landscaped expressways. It was built with your safety, comfort and convenience in mind. Whether you are rushing to keep an appointment or cruising on a pleasure trip, you will surely appreciate the speedy clearance at the customs and immigration checkpoints, the fast and easy mode of payment at the toll plazas, the smooth travel on the wide expressways, and the relaxing atmosphere at the Rest and Service Areas.

The Second Link comprises the following physical components:
- a twin-deck bridge supporting a dual three-lane carriageway linking Tanjong Kupang in Johor and Jalan Ahmad Ibrahim at Tuas in Singapore.

- expressways totalling about 44 kilometres stretching from Tanjung Kupang northwards to as far as Senai, linking seamlessly to Malaysia's North- South Expressway and the Senai International Airport.

- the Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) Complex, also known as Kompleks Sultan Abu Bakar (KSAB).

- ancillary facilities such as toll plazas, rest and service areas (RSA) and a motorist assistance service known as LINK Ronda.

PLUS
Projek Lebuhraya Utara Selatan - North South Highway

PLUS TV Commercial

The North South Highway, a 772-km highwayway extending from the border of Thailand in the north to the border of Singapore in the south, plays a major role in serving the needs of the road transportation industry for the coming decades. Constructed in phases over a period of seven years (from 1988 to 1995), the North-South Highwayway was completed 15 months ahead of schedule and was fully operational by February 1994. It was officially opened on September 8 1994 by the Prime Minister of Malaysia, YAB Dato' Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, signalling the coming of age of Malaysia's road transportation system. The North-South Expressway starts at Bukit Kayu Hitam and ends in Johor Bahru, linking all major cities on the West Coast of Peninsular Malaysia between Thailand and Singapore. In addition, three other adjoining expressways complete the total 847.7 km of inter-urban toll highways referred to collectively as the North-South Expressway under PLUS' concession, namely the North Klang Valley Expressway, Federal Highway Route 2 and the Seremban-Port Dickson Highway.

The immediate benefits of the project were most evident in reductions in congestion and travelling time experienced by expressway users, especially during festive seasons when the traditional "balik kampung" phenomenon manifests itself in the form of peak traffic volumes as Malaysians return to their hometowns to celebrate the holidays. Other benefits in the form of economic development were perhaps less apparent in the early years but became more and more visible as new townships and industrial parks began to take shape along the length of the expressway and trade and tourism enjoyed a new era of growth. Today, the North-South Expressway connects to other major expressways such as the North-South Expressway Central Link (NSECL) and the Malaysia-Singapore Second Crossing (MSSC), enhancing even further the level of accessibility to the West Coast of Peninsular Malaysia via major ports of entry into the country.

Lebuhraya Pantai Timur

East Coast Expressway, ECE or (Malay: Lebuhraya Pantai Timur) (LPT ) is a main expressway in Malaysia. It is an extension of Karak Expressway, which starts from Karak to Kuala Lumpur. It provides a link from the West Coast of Peninsular Malaysia to the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia. It features a closed toll system like the North-South Expressway.

Construction of the East Coast Expressway began in 2000, with Phase 1 opened in August 2004. Phase 2 of the expressway, which will extend the highway to Terengganu, is under construction.

Highway hijackings in Malaysia cost millions, say reports

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 9, 2007 (AFP) - Highway hijackings of trucks in Malaysia's north have led to millions of dollars in losses and are eroding investor confidence, reports said Tuesday.

Transport Minister Chan Kong Choy said trucks with consignments of electronic chips and computers were often targeted last year, with losses estimated at 30 million ringgit (8.54 million dollars).

"The consignments are usually high-value goods such as electronic items and there have been cases where lorries belonging to one transport company have been hijacked 10 times," Chan was quoted as saying in the New Straits Times.

The minister vowed Malaysia's cabinet would tackle the problem, highlighted in a meeting Chan held with an association of truck drivers from Malaysia's northern region, reports said.

"It brings an adverse impact on the investment environment as a lot of high-value goods are based on just-in-time delivery. Such robberies will erode the confidence of local and foreign investors," Chan was quoted as saying in the Star daily.

The drivers, who presented a memorandum outlining their concerns to the minister, fear losing business.

"When there are too many hijacking cases, insurance companies refuse to provide any more insurance coverage. The lorry company also faces the risk of losing contracts," said Chan.

The complaints represent another blow to Malaysian authorities, who were left red-faced when chips worth 50 million ringgit were stolen in November from a cargo complex in northern Penang state, known as Southeast Asia's "Silicon Valley".

The robbery, the largest in Malaysia's history, left US semiconductor giant Intel shocked at poor security at the facility and triggered fears that investment in Malaysia could be hit.

Maybe the definition of highways isn't clear in malaysia as why a road with more one lane can be considered as a highway as shown in the putrajaya pics haha.Some ppl just got confused.
