Klang Valley LRT Line 3 (Bandar Utama-Klang Line) | Length: 36km | 25 stations | Completion: 2020

Shah Alam LRT link in pipeline

RM5B-RM6B PLAN: Prasarana is expected to call for tenders next year

THE government may build a third light rail transit (LRT) line from Kelana Jaya to Port Klang, believed to be costing RM5 billion to RM6 billion.

Dubbed the Shah Alam LRT line, Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd (Prasarana) is expected to call for tenders for the project next year, after a proper due diligence to be undertaken by the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) is completed.

Prasarana is a wholly-owned government company established by the Finance Ministry and the operator and asset owner of LRT lines.

SPAD chief development officer Azmi Abdul Aziz confirmed that the new Shah Alam LRT line is on the drawing board and that it will span 20km to 30km.

He, however, declined to comment on the estimated development cost.

Azmi said it will be an open tender and companies with existing contracts for the Kelana Jaya and Ampang LRT line extension projects will be allowed to bid.

"It is no more like before where companies that had won LRT jobs couldn't bid for the same development. As long as the companies are qualified and have met the necessary funding and technical requirements, they can bid," he said.

"This is totally a new line and very important for the public. Shah Alam is becoming densely populated, with new townships coming up.

"The new line would allow people from Port Klang and Shah Alam to come to the city without hassle. It will complement the existing Kelana Jaya and Ampang LRT lines," he added.

It is learnt that the Shah Alam line will start from the LRT station in Kelana Jaya, head towards the Shah Alam stadium and pass through Klang, before stopping in Port Klang.

In Port Klang, the LRT line will also be linked to the KTM commuter station to serve the growing population.

Malaysia is currently extending the existing Ampang and Kelana Jaya LRT lines under a RM7 billion plan.

The two extensions involve a total of 34km and Prasarana have awarded almost all of the contracts for the jobs.

That's really the missing link, i like it. Extend it to Klang if possible, but no duplication of the KTM Komuter route

Looks good! The more metro lines, the merrier. We need to get the people off their cars and into safe, reliable, efficient public transport.

Half the people don't use their signals anyway.

Will Etihad do a bacon sandwich for that price? I didn't think so.

They shouldn't hesitate to make a few underground stretches on this line. Especially if the area it serves has gotten too dense.

I agree with you. Klang city centre need the lrt more badly than in the northern side of Komuter track (as drawn in the SPAD draft plan). The line begins from Port Klang, then goes south side of Komuter, passing thru AEON Bkt Tinggi mall if possible, then it interchanges with the Shah Alam komuter, then go northeast towards the stadium and finally Kelana Jaya.

I don't think it will start at Kelana Jaya station (KJ 24) as there is simply no space provision for another LRT line.

The more probable stations are Kelana Jaya line extension station 2 or 3.

Here lies the problem - this clearly should be an MRT Line of Medium Capacity; i.e. 3 car trains.

SPAD only show 3 MRT Lines in their White Paper so everyone thinks that's it & they only show 3 because MMC-Gamuda only proposed 3 initially. i.e. they haven't thought about future MRT plans.

What SPAD need is a long term plan - i.e. MRT after Line 3 - beyond 2020. There should be a 2040 Transit plan that shows MRT Lines 4,5,6 & associated LRT Feeders. If Bangkok can do this, why can't they do it here ? SPAD should be doing the long term plan; not just following what the LRT Operator wants to do in order to expand his 'empire'.

Yes, LRT is cheaper than MRT but it's also much lower capacity. LRT is a short term fix that does not cater for the population growth that the Klang Valley will experience over the next 10-15 years.

Once you do MRT, you should not continue to look at LRT for major arteries; only use it for localised feeders to/from the MRT / KTM network.

By starting from Kelana Jaya area, I wonder if it will share the same depot as Kelana Jaya line if so, could the LRT3 rolling stocks be Bombardier ARTs?

Another LRT extension project in Klang Valley?

Feasibility study underway for new line from Subang or Kelana Jaya to Port Klang
KUALA LUMPUR: A study on another multi-billion-ringgit light rail transit (LRT) rail extension, brought about by the huge volume of commuters on the line from Port Klang to Shah Alam and Petaling Jaya, is under way, according to Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) chief executive officer Mohd Nur Kamal.

“Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd is now undertaking the initial study and will present it to us. Subsequently, we will do another feasibility study on the possibility of having a new LRT line from Subang or Kelana Jaya to Port Klang,” he told StarBiz on the sidelines of the Sustainable Urban Transport Seminar 2013.

He, however, said it was too early to confirm the RM5bil to RM6bil price tag for the possible third extension that had been reported by a local daily.

“We also have to look at Prasarana’s financial capability to undertake the new project,” he added.

At present, the state-owned public transport owner and operator is undertaking an RM7bil LRT extension of its two existing lines, namely, the Ampang and Kelana Jaya Lines.

Mohd Nur said SPAD was ready to present to the Government the outcome of the feasibility studies of the other two mass rapid transit (MRT) lines in the current quarter.

“Our input is on the transport requirement and demand aspects. On the affordability to finance, the Government has to decide on that,” he said.

The first MRT line, a crucial component of the Greater Kuala Lumpur regional plan, is currently under construction, running from Sungai Buloh to Kajang, at an estimated cost of about RM23bil.

Mohd Nur said the high-speed rail between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, meanwhile, was gaining traction, as both countries were busy working on the details. “Some of the details are on how Malaysia and Singapore can share the funding responsibility,” he revealed.

On the seminar, Mohd Nur said the most important part was being able to gather all stakeholders involved in the transformation of public transport.

“We need all stakeholders to work in tandem with us towards understanding the importance of public transport.

“Ideally, development or town planning should include the transit aspect from the very beginning. However, at present, we build the development first and then think about the transit aspect,” he pointed out.

Earlier at the seminar, SPAD chairman Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar said a sustainable public transport system required an overall approach that balanced not only technical but also economic and environmental issues.

“As you know, the Government has established the objective of making Kuala Lumpur one of the 20 most liveable cities in the world.

“To do this, we need to improve the public transport system, not just the infrastructure, but also the services and the trained manpower needed to run the system,” he said in his keynote address.

Syed Hamid said that an integrated approach to public transport was needed to achieve this objective.

“And Kuala Lumpur is just the precursor to the approach in other cities as well. The only difference is that in Kuala Lumpur, rail is the backbone of the public transport system, while in most other cities, it would be the bus.

“The central region of Peninsular Malaysia will become the most urbanised part of the country, with a projected 88% of the population residing in urban areas. The urbanisation rates in other parts would be 66% in the northern region, 74% in the southern region and 60% in the eastern region,” he said.

Reported January 2012.Next is to decide when to start after the allignnents and planning has been confirmed. Better start after the current LRT extension finishes so that the equipment,tools and workforce can be utilized straight away.

I am sure they want it done by 2020.hehe

SPAD proposes increased railway connectivity

KUALA LUMPUR: The Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) has included proposals to extend the city rail services as one of its urban rail development projects under the Land Public Transport Master Plan.One proposal will see the extension of the KL Monorail services from its Tun Sambanthan station to Taman Gembira in Jalan Klang Lama, with the intention to improve accessibility to areas such as Bangsar and Mid Valley.It is also aimed at alleviating the heavy traffic of commuters heading to KL Sentral from the south.A plan for a third light rail transit (LRT) service is also among the proposals prepared by SPAD to connect Klang and Shah Alam with the Kelana Jaya line.The link will allow city commuters to transfer between the LRT and KTM Komuter which focuses on long distance travel to the suburbs.SPAD*chairman Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar*said the proposals were to increase connectivity between the various rail public transport services, which would allow commuters to conveniently interchange between them.He also said the public was welcomed to provide feedback to the plan, which included bus and taxi services as well.SPAD was formulated in 2010 to manage policy planning and regulatory oversight for the GTP’s Urban Public Transport NKRA.
