Rapid KL LRT - Kota Damansara-Cheras Line



More than one million Klang Valley residents will benefit from the much awaited new Kota Damansara-Cheras rail transit line. The Government had earlier said the new line and extensions should be ready by 2012. Sources said with the average construction period taking three to four years, work would have to start by the end of this year.

The 40km route covers some of the most densely populated areas in the Klang Valley such as Damansara and Cheras as well as the fast growing area of Kota Damansara. It will also serve the heart of the Golden Triangle, the business and financial hub of Kuala Lumpur. Currently, the area is only served by KL Monorail, which is already suffering from overcrowding.

The new line, which sources said would cost between RM4bil and RM5bil and will be mostly elevated, will provide the much needed expansion to the current 56km, 48-station light rail transit network, especially in view of the rising fuel prices and the new emphasis on public transport. The line was announced in October 2006 by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak but little has been heard about it since then.

The alignment, made available to The Star, showed the new line running from Kota Damansara along Persiaran Surian to the Damansara-Puchong Expressway and then heading towards the city centre along the Sprint Expressway, through Bangsar Baru and Jalan Bangsar. It will then run parallel to the existing Kelana Jaya Line to KL Sentral, Pasar Seni and Masjid Jamek before heading to the Golden Triangle along Jalan Raja Chulan. The route will then pass Pasar Rakyat in Bukit Bintang and then Jalan Tun Razak where it will join Jalan Cheras. It will continue along the road and the Cheras-Kajang Expressway to the Balakong interchange near Cheras Batu 11. Passengers will be able to switch with the existing Kelana Jaya Line at Bangsar, KL Sentral, Pasar Seni and Masjid Jamek; and the Ampang Line at Masjid Jamek and Maluri. There will be around 30 stations along the line, including the interchange stations.

Sources said the route was a “desktop alignment” which would form the basis for the eventual line. The number of stations has also not been finalised. The final alignment and number of stations is unlikely to vary in any major way from the “desktop” plan. As with the other lines, the new line will be owned by Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd and operated by RapidKL.

While the Government has yet to announce when work will begin on the new line, sources pointed to the “positive statements” by Second Finance Minister Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop. Nor had announced that public transport would be getting more incentives, allocations and assistance in Budget 2009 and future budgets. Sources said the Government was also currently conducting the mid-term review of the 9th Malaysia Plan and there were concerted efforts to get the new line in.

On September 2008, the Chief Executive Officer of SPNB, the asset owner of the Ampang Line and Kelana Jaya Line said that the line may be upgraded to a Mass Rapid Transit system as the line will connect two high density areas of Kuala Lumpur. The company expects a daily ridership of 500,000 in which an MRT system is more suitable than an LRT system. However, a study will be done first before any decision is made. He added that a integrated transport platform will be build with the new line in areas of Damansara or Sungai Buloh similar to the one that is currently built in Bandar Tasik Selatan station[2]. The CEO also said that the detailed design stage will begin in 2nd quarter 2009.

RapidKL seeks swift decision, welcomes new rail transit line
Monday June 16, 2008 By LEE YUK PENG, TheStar

PETALING JAYA: RapidKL hopes the Government can decide fast on the new 40km Kota Damansara-Cheras rail transit line, which covers some of the most densely populated areas in the Klang Valley.

RapidKL communications general manager Ebi Azly Abdullah said the rail transit line would be a good way of getting people to use the public transportation service.

“Rail should be the backbone of the public transportation system. It can ferry a lot of people in a short period of time.

“Taking the light rail transit to the city will be cheaper,'' said Ebi Azly.

He said this in response to the new rail line and extensions planned to be ready by 2012.

The new line will be owned by Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd and operated by RapidKL.

While the Government has yet to announce when work will begin on the new line, sources pointed to the “positive statements” by Second Finance Minister Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop after a briefing session with Backbenchers last Thursday.

Nor Mohamed had announced that public transportation would be getting more incentives, allocations and assistance under the Budget 2009 and future Budgets.

Sources also said the Government was conducting the mid-term review of the 9th Malaysia Plan and there were concerted efforts to get the new line in.

Besides the new line, the Government is also trying to get extensions to the Kelana Jaya and Ampang Lines.

The extensions will cover Subang Jaya, USJ, Kinrara and Puchong and meet at Putra Heights.

Yesterday, Nor Mohamed also announced that the upcoming 2009 Budget would spell some relief for Malaysians now saddled with higher living costs with its emphasis on a more efficient public transportation system and a knowledge-based economy, among others.

“Various measures are being worked out to ensure as many Malaysians will enjoy some measure of prosperity,” he said after meeting federal Finance Ministry officials in Kota Kinabalu.

New LRT lines may save billions in fuel costs
Friday September 5, 2008
By ROYCE CHEAH

KUALA LUMPUR: More than a million Klang Valley residents stand to benefit from the extension and new light rail transit lines announced in Budget 2009, a three-fold increase from current levels.

Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad (SPNB) said with the new level of public transport usage, the country could save as much as RM3bil in fuel costs.

The construction of a new 42km Kota Damansara-Cheras LRT line as well as extensions to the Kelana Jaya and Ampang LRT lines were announced as part of measures to develop public transport under the Budget.

Other measures include the purchase of more trains and buses.

The initiatives will cost a total of RM35bil.

SPNB chief executive officer, Shaipudin Shah Harun, said the first train from the 35 trains that were ordered for the Kelana Jaya LRT line would be operational by September next year.

Speaking to reporters at a special post-budget briefing yesterday, Shaipudin said all the trains, which were ordered in 2006, would be ready by 2011 while the 15km extensions to the Kelana Jaya and Ampang lines would also be ready at about the same time.

“The extensions are now at the detailed design stage and we need about a year for land acquisition,” he said.

Shaipudin said the detailed design stage for the new 42km Kota Damansara-Cheras line would happen by the second quarter of next year adding that this new line would have 32 stations, five of which would be underground.

Details of the Kota Damansara-Cheras LRT plan expected soon
02-12-2008: by Yong Min Wei THEEDGEDAILY

KUALA LUMPUR: The government soon will have full details of the Kota Damansara-Cheras light rail transit (LRT) project which will eventually benefit more than a million commuters in the Klang Valley.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said the 42km LRT project that would link Kota Damansara and Cheras was on the drawing board and expressed confidence that the project could take off in the near future.

“Just a few days ago, a comprehensive briefing on the project was given to me and my senior officers,” he told a press conference during his working visit at the Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd’s (KTMB) Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) depot and locomotive workshop yesterday.

According to Ong, his ministry would need some time following the comprehensive briefing to provide a host of information on the entire project that has been announced as part of the measures to develop public transport under the Budget 2009.

Under Budget 2009, RM35 bilion will be expended to improve public transportation, which among others include a new Kota Damansara-Cheras LRT line set for completion in 2014.

Asked to elaborate on the estimated cost and deadline for the project, he replied: “Be a little bit more patient... I don’t have much to tell you today.”

On a separate matter, Ong did not wish to comment on several independent non-executive directors that were reported to have tendered their resignation from the KTMB board following their protest in the appointment of the company’s new managing director.

“It is only fair that I leave it to the Ministry of Finance to comment as the appointments of directors come under their jurisdiction” he pointed out.

Nevertheless, Ong said such resignations would not affect the operations of KTMB, adding that he was satisfied with the company’s ability to tackle problems faced by commuters lately.

Earlier, Ong said following successful overhauls, there would be 36 EMUs to service the KTM Komuter train routes by March 2009 from the current 29 EMUs that were operational.

“With the increase, waiting during peak hours will be reduced to only 15 minutes,” he said.

He also stressed that of the 15 locomotives from Dalian, China that were non-operational in May this year, 13 locomotives had been repaired and now operational while the other two should be on track by month end.

Ong added that repairs to the 15 locomotives were free of charge as it was well within warranty period following their fresh delivery from the manufacturer.

Sep 14, 2008 Oleh NIZAM YATIM

KUALA LUMPUR 4 Sept. - Bandar raya Kuala Lumpur akan mempunyai laluan transit aliran ringan (LRT) bawah tanah baru sejauh 5.9 kilometer dari Jalan Tun Sambanthan, Brickfields ke Pasar Rakyat di Bukit Bintang.

Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad (SPNB), Shaipudin Shah Harun berkata, laluan bawah tanah itu yang mempunyai lima stesen adalah sebahagian daripada projek LRT baru aliran Kota Damansara ke Cheras yang dijangka siap pada 2014.

''Berikutan jumlah penduduk yang ramai iaitu kira-kira 878,000 orang di sepanjang laluan ini, maka kita sedang mengkaji kemungkinan mengunakan tren berkapasiti lebih besar seperti diguna Transit Aliran Massa (MRT) di Singapura," jelasnya.

Beliau berkata demikian pada sidang akhbar bersama SPNB dan Rangkaian Pengangkutan Integrasi Deras Sdn. Bhd. (RapidKL) mengenai Bajet 2009 di sini hari ini.

Ketika membentangkan Bajet 2009 baru-baru ini, Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi mengumumkan langkah kerajaan memperuntukkan RM35 bilion dalam tempoh 2009 hingga 2014 bagi meningkatkan kecekapan pengangkutan awam khususnya LRT.

Laluan LRT bawah tanah sedia ada membabitkan aliran Kelana Jaya dari Masjid Jamek sehingga ke Ampang Park.

Menurut Shaipudin, projek laluan baru sejauh 42 kilometer dengan 32 stesen itu akan bermula pada suku kedua tahun 2009 membabitkan proses reka bentuk.

Antara laluan yang terlibat, katanya, ialah Kota Damansara, Bandar Utama, Bangsar, KL Sentral, Bukit Bintang, Bandar Tasik Selatan dan Cheras manakala stesen untuk laluan bawah tanah belum ditetapkan.

Mengenai pengumuman ketika Bajet 2009 untuk menyambung LRT aliran Ampang dan Kelana Jaya yang masing-masing sejauh 15 kilometer yang dijangka siap pada akhir 2011, beliau berkata, pihaknya telah selesai melakukan kajian tanah serta menentukan jajaran dan kini dalam proses reka bentuk landasan dan stesen.

''Projek pembinaan kedua- dua laluan ini dijangka bermula pada pertengahan tahun depan dengan aliran Kelana Jaya akan mempunyai 12 stesen termasuk Subang, Subang Jaya, USJ dan Putra Heights.

''Sambungan aliran Ampang juga turut mempunyai 12 stesen termasuk OUG, Kinrara, Puchong dan Putra Heights," jelas beliau.

Ditanya tentang perolehan 35 set tren baru bagi aliran Kelana Jaya, beliau berkata, tren itu yang sedang dibina oleh Bombardier di Sahagun, Mexico dijangka tiba di Pelabuhan Klang November ini.

''Tren baru ini akan dipasang dengan peralatan tambahan di sini termasuk penyaman udara dan menjalani beberapa siri ujian sebelum memulakan operasi yang dijangka pada September 2009," jelasnya.

Tambah beliau, dengan siapnya projek sambungan dan laluan baru itu, jumlah pengguna LRT di Lembah Klang dijangka meningkat kepada sejuta orang sehari berbanding 350,000 orang sekarang.

New LRT lines approved
TheStar

KUALA LUMPUR: The Transport Ministry has approved the proposed alignment for the new light rail transit (LRT) line in the Klang Valley, its minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy said.

He said the ministry has also approved the alignments for the extensions to existing LRT lines which were proposed by Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd (SPNB).

The proposal would be submitted to the Cabinet committee on public transport.

Chan was speaking to reporters yesterday after the launch of the Permai Central Transport Hub at Pusat Bandar Putra Permai near Seri Kembangan which is located south of here.

The Government had proposed the construction of a new LRT line between Kota Damansara and Cheras.

It had also proposed extensions to the existing Kelana Jaya (formerly Putra-LRT) Line from Kelana Jaya to USJ and the Ampang(formerly Star-LRT) Line from Sri Petaling to Bukit Jalil and Puchong.

The lines would be constructed and owned by SPNB, which is 100% owned by the Finance Ministry.

On when construction would begin, Chan said it would depend on the Cabinet committee headed by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

On the Ipoh-Padang Besar double tracking and electrification project, Chan said the Government was currently working out the cost of recently revived project.

He said this was being determined by his ministry, Finance Ministry and the Economic Planning Unit in the Prime Minister’s Department.

Chan said the ministry was also working out the cost of expanding Ipoh’s Sultan Azlan Shah Airport.

Last week, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi made the announcement that the airport would be improved and expanded for more traffic.

Adding value to Mutiara Damansara
Saturday January 31, 2009
By EDY SARIF



Ghazali: About two million people come to The Curve every month.

THE development of 360 acres in Mutiara Damansara by Boustead Properties Bhd will see the addition of another jewel in March with the completion of the 26-storey Surian Tower office building.

According to its executive director Datuk Ghazali Mohd Ali, this is part of the property developer’s efforts to add value to the current development: “Of the 360 acres of development, 20 acres are allocated for corporate office projects while the other 40 acres are for retail.”

“It will be the tallest building in this area. We will also build and maintain the roads here to ensure easy access, not just for those living here, but also for visitors as well. With the help of the authorities, we have managed to control the traffic here, though there is still room for improvement,” he said at a recent media briefing.

There are several access roads to Mutiara Damansara – via Persiaran Surian from Bandar Utama, Persiaran Surian from Kota Damansara, Jalan PJU 7/1 from Damansara Perdana and via Penchala Link from Kuala Lumpur.

Sited on prime area just beside Bandar Utama and with freehold title, Mutiara Damansara properties enjoy high appreciation value especially the residential units.

For example, he pointed out, when Mutiara Damansara first launched its bungalows and semi-Ds in 2002, the selling prices were RM1.3mil and RM843,000 respectively. Last year, he says, these units were changing hands for RM2.4mil and RM1.8mil respectively.

Boustead Properties is now preparing to launch its last residential development in the area, Mutiara Damansara Surian Residency, which will be its second condominium project after the Surian Condominium. The freehold development will have about 300 units of between 900 and 2,200 sq ft.

It will have two blocks of 23 and 25 storeys each and some low-rise units, priced at about RM400 psf.

The Surian Tower building, he says, will be eco-friendly as it will tap rain water through its ground reservoir for landscaping.

“We are building a car park above to give natural ventilation. Apart from that, we are using layers of sun shading louvres for energy consumption,” he adds.

The new office building will have over 300,000 sq ft of space for rental and each floor plate offers 15,000 sq ft of space with net lettable area of 12,000 sq ft.

“Our plan is to have about 60% anchor tenants while the balance would be for smaller companies. About 50% of the space has already been taken up,” he says, adding that Nestle (M) Bhd will be one of the anchor tenants.

Work on the building, a gross development value of RM165mil, started 1½ years ago. It was sold to Lembaga Angkatan Tentera (LTAT) for RM500 psf.

“Surian Tower will provide a total of 930 car parks to add to the existing 7,000 parking bays around The Curve area. This will help ease the shortage of parking bays around this area especially during the weekends,” says Ghazali.

The Curve, Malaysia’s first lifestyle pedestrianised shopping mall, is owned and developed by Mutiara Rini Sdn Bhd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Boustead Properties.

Currently, about 98% of the space at The Curve is occupied. Even so, he says, there is a long waiting list of new tenants eager to move in.

“About two million people come to The Curve every month. Traffic is high, which is a good sign for our tenants’ businesses. Some of them are, in fact, expanding their businesses here,” he says.

The Curve has about 70 food and beverage outlets, bistros and cafés, as well as, 250 shops plus 20 office suites.

Boustead Properties also plans to build a second Royal Bintang hotel (the first is The Royal Bintang Damansara) to be located behind Cineleisure which will have about 300 rooms and a convention centre.

“We plan to build an interlink connecting The Surian Tower to the hotel and straight to The Curve shopping mall. It would be fully air-conditioned, five metres wide with some shops along the way,” he says, adding to improve connectivity, the company is also hoping to have a physical link from the proposed new LRT station beside the Surian Tower.

Government Set To Improve Urban Transportation, Says Najib
Published: 2009/08/11

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 11 (Bernama) -- The government is set to further improve urban transportation here to ensure that the benefits of a fully integrated system will be enjoyed by all commuters, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said on Tuesday.

The upgrade in public transportation would include the development of a new mass transit line, running from Damansara to Cheras and from Kelana Jaya to Putra Heights, that would integrate with the existing Kuala Lumpur Sentral hub, he said.

Najib said this at the launch of the Nu Sentral retail mall which is expected to be completed by 2012, and is a part of an integrated development project at Kuala Lumpur Sentral (KL Sentral).

Nu Sentral is in a unique position as it is right at the focal point of KL city's centre of connectivity, linking it to the rest of Klang Valley via the city light rail (LRT) system and the Komuter (commuter) system and the country's largest international airport via the Express Rail Link (ERL).

Another unique accessibility feature of the Nu Sentral is its linkage to KL Sentral via a fully air-conditioned bridge and another separate bridge to link to-and-from the KL Sentral Monorail Station.

"With the completion of the new development, we will see seamless connectivity between the KTM inter-city and commuter services, the monorail, the ERL and the Kelana Jaya LRT through the station and the new integrated development," Najib said.

Nu Sentral is a 1.2 million square feet development with a gross development value (GDV) of RM1.4 billion, comprising a seven storey retail mall and 27-storey office tower.

It is part of an integrated development project within the KL Sentral covering 2.6 million square ft which includes three office towers and a boutique hotel, with total GDV amounting to RM2.14 billion.

Nu Sentral and the associated office tower development is a joint-investment between Malaysian Resources Corporation Bhd (MRCB) and Pelaburan Hartanah Bhd (PHB), a subsidiary of Yayasan Amanah Hartanah Bumiputera.

Describing Nu Sentral as potentially being three times bigger than the Mid Valley Megamall, Najib said the project would transform Brickfields, although some aspects of the area like Little India would remain.

Najib also said that the government is committed to work in partnership with the private sector to promote the real estate industry, in order to promote the local economy.

He added that good infrastructure and connectivity were the basis for economic growth in any developing country.

In February this year, the government approved a RM110 million package of additional works to improve the road infrastructure around KL Sentral and Brickfields, as part of the economic stimulus package.

"When MRCB asked for government support in terms of public work for this development, we agreed to approve RM110 million on the condition that they invest RM2 billion," Najib said.

"I am happy to note that they have invested more than RM3 billion," he added.

Located to the south of Stesen Sentral Kuala Lumpur, with direct road frontage to Jalan Stesen Sentral and Jalan Tun Sambanthan, Nu Sentral will be managed by Nu Sentral Sdn Bhd, a joint-venture development by MRCB and PHB with 51:49 equity stakes respectively.

Meanwhile, MRCB chairman Tan Sri Azlan Zainol said Nu Sentral has a ready catchment population or market of more than 150,000 daily commuters who use Stesen Sentral KL.

This is further complemented by more than 20,000 permanent workers and residents who are either currently working or residing within the KL Sentral development area, not to mention the thousands of other permanent residents in the Brickfields neighbourhood.

"By the time the mall is completed, we anticipate more than 180,000 daily commuters will utilise the combined KL Sentral station facilities," he said.

RM1.4b bina sistem pengangkutan awam Nu Sentral - PM
12 Ogos 2009 Oleh NIZAM YATIM

KUALA LUMPUR 11 Ogos - Usaha kerajaan mewujudkan sistem pengangkutan awam bersepadu di bandar raya ini dijangka tercapai dengan pembinaan pusat beli-belah baru, Nu Sentral yang bersambung dengan rangkaian pengangkutan rel di Brickfields di sini.

Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak berkata, pusat itu akan menyediakan sambungan sempurna perkhidmatan kereta api antara bandar, komuter, monorel, Express Rail Link (ERL) dan transit aliran ringan (LRT).

"Laluan transit aliran massa (MRT) dari Damansara ke Cheras dan dari Kelana Jaya ke Putra Heights akan disepadukan dengan pusat beli-belah baru ini yang dijangka siap pada 2012," katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian ketika berucap melancarkan Nu Sentral yang akan dibangunkan oleh Malaysian Resources Corporation Berhad (MRCB) dan Pelaburan Hartanah Berhad (PHB) di sini hari ini.

Turut hadir Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri, Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop; Menteri Wilayah Persekutuan, Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin dan Pengerusi MRCB, Tan Sri Azlan Zainol.

Pembinaan pusat beli-belah tujuh tingkat yang merupakan sebahagian daripada projek pembangunan bersepadu Kuala Lumpur Sentral (KL Sentral) akan dibina bersama-sama tiga menara pejabat 27 tingkat dan sebuah hotel butik dengan kos keseluruhan RM1.4 bilion.

Ia akan disambungkan dengan Stesen KL Sentral, Stesen Monorel di Jalan Tun Sambanthan dan stesen MRT baru bagi laluan Damansara-Cheras menerusi jambatan berhawa dingin.

Menurut Najib, Nu Sentral yang tiga kali ganda lebih besar daripada Mid Valley Megamall akan mengubah imej lama Brickfields, meskipun beberapa aspek di kawasan itu seperti Little India, akan dikekalkan.

"Kita akan memastikan manfaat dari segi ekonomi dan sosial daripada pembangunan semula Brickfields ini akan dinikmati setiap masyarakat di kawasan berkenaan selaras dengan konsep 1Malaysia," katanya.

Tambah beliau, dengan adanya rangkaian pengangkutan awam bersepadu itu, ia akan menggalakkan orang ramai berjalan kaki seperti penduduk Hong Kong yang dilihatnya kurus kerana melakukan aktiviti itu setiap hari.

Dalam pada itu, kata beliau, pembangunan Nu Sentral adalah selaras dengan langkah kerajaan menyenaraikan usaha meningkatkan mutu perkhidmatan pengangkutan awam sebagai salah satu daripada enam Bidang Keberhasilan Utama Nasional (NKRA).

"Kita telah menetapkan bahawa usaha meningkatkan mutu perkhidmatan ini dijadikan sebagai sasaran yang perlu dicapai bagi tempoh jangka sederhana kerana ia penting untuk pertumbuhan ekonomi negara yang mapan," katanya.

Dalam perkembangan berkaitan, beliau berkata, kerajaan telah mengambil langkah untuk menaik taraf prasarana jalan raya di sekitar KL Sentral dan Brickfields dengan meluluskan peruntukan di bawah pakej rangsangan ekonomi sebanyak RM110 juta pada Februari lalu.

"Langkah ini selaras dengan konsep perkongsian antara kerajaan dan sektor swasta dan juga setelah pihak MRCB berjumpa dengan kita bagi memaklumkan mereka bersedia melabur RM2 bilion untuk pembangunan KL Sentral sekiranya kerajaan membantu menaik taraf infrastruktur jalan raya.

"Saya gembira kerana MRCB telah melangkaui sasaran ditetapkan dengan pelaburan baru di KL Sentral kini telah melebih RM3 bilion," katanya.

Pengangkutan awam ditingkat


KUALA LUMPUR: Pembangunan laluan baru transit aliran ringan (LRT) dari Damansara ke Cheras dan dari Kelana jaya ke Putra Heights, Puchong, akan menyaksikan sambungan sempurna perkhidmatan LRT dan komuter, untuk manfaat pengguna khususnya di ibu kota.

Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak berkata, langkah itu adalah sebahagian usaha kerajaan dalam meningkatkan sistem pengangkutan awam di ibu kota bagi memastikan sistem bersepadu sepenuhnya dinikmati semua pengguna.

"Dengan siapnya pembangunan baru itu, kita akan melihat sambungan sempurna dengan LRT dan perkhidmatan komuter menerusi stesen di NU Sentral," katanya ketika merasmikan Majlis Pelancaran Pusat Beli-Belah NU Sentral, di KL Sentral, semalam.

NU Sentral dijangka siap menjelang 2012 di Brickfields dan mempunyai kedudukan unik di tengah pusat perhubungan ibu kota, yang menghubungkannya dengan keseluruhan tempat di Lembah Klang menerusi LRT dan komuter serta lapangan terbang antarabangsa terbesar negara menerusi Express Rail Link (ERL).

Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak berkata, pusat itu akan menyediakan sambungan sempurna perkhidmatan kereta api antara bandar, komuter, monorel, Express Rail Link (ERL) dan transit aliran ringan (LRT).

Ia akan disambungkan dengan Stesen KL Sentral, Stesen Monorel di Jalan Tun Sambanthan dan stesen MRT baru bagi laluan Damansara-Cheras menerusi jambatan berhawa dingin.

No, there will be no clash.

As far as I can tell, the KD Cheras line will go underground from the Jalan Maarof/Jalan Bangsar intersection (they may try to build a connection with the KJ LRT at Bangsar). It will then cross brickfield and follow Jalan Tun Sambanthan towards Jalan Sultan Suleiman.

Not sure what happens after that...but the plan will involve tunneling under Jalan Tun Sambanthan. The KL Sentral station on the KD-Cheras line will be off Jalan Tun Sambanthan at the doorstep of NU Sentral.

Cheers, m

nampaknya mereka nak sambung ngan KL monorail di sini yang terhampir ngan KL Sentral (stesen subway tak masuk ke terminal selalu jugak) ...

I just took a close look at the route posted to Google Earth which is supposed to be based on this map:



Which was published in the Star

The Star report suggests that the line will follow the existing Kelana Jaya line from Bangsar through to Pasar Seni....which is reflected in the map and the posting on google earth.

It suggests that the approach will follow Jalan Bangsar

But Prasarana and the people at KL Sentral that I have talked to, plus the report about the NU Sentral...are all suggesting that the line will be along Tun Sambanthan with a station between the monorail and the existing KL Sentral railway station.

For that to happen, here is what I see:

1. The line will be elevated from Pusat Bandar Damansara.

Bangsar Routing

2. The line may travel underground through Bangsar - because of the changing topography of the hill may make tunneling cheaper.

3. Whether it is elevated or underground the line will follow Jalan Maarof towards Bangsar.

4. Look for another station at or near the Bangsar Shopping Centre (probably called Bangsar Utara)

5. There will probably be another station at Bangsar Baru

6. The line will follow Lorong Maarof and pass between the Maybank and UOA buildings.

6a. The open car park between the 2 buildings is a likely site for another station (Bangsar or Bangsar Selatan) that would integrate the two lines.

6b. The platform would probably stretch across Jalan Bangsar so there could be a second entrace on the other side of Jalan Bangsar.

6c. At this point, a KTM Komuter station at Bangsar (limited service) begins to make sense.

Brickfields Routing

1. There is an open space between Jalan Ang Seng 3 and Jalan Ang Seng 4

2. After this, there is a school field

2a. In order to pass the school field the tunnel would pass under a Hindu Kuil - possibly a source of tension if demolition is required.

3. After the school field, the line can follow Jalan Tun Sambanthan to NU Sentral/KL Sentral/Brickfields station.

By this point they should probably rename KL Sentral as Brickfields-KL Sentral...

sounds like "King's Cross - St. Pancras"

Cheers, m

Im not sure that I understood what you mean Nazrey...my BM hasnt developed that far.

But as far as I know the MRT line will have a station along Jalan Tun Sambanthan, across the road from the KL Sentral monorail station. It will be located underground so Im guessing there will be a subway across Jalan Tun Sambanthan as well as the overhead bridge. I guess it depends on whether they can find space for it or not.

As for the rest of the Kota Damansara - Cheras line - Id really like to know the route. What has been posted on Google Earth is pretty unrealistic (it follows Jalan Raja Chulan to Jalan Bukit Bintang, then Jalan Bukit Bintang to Jalan Pudu and on to the Pasar Rakyat market)......

Cheers, m
