Public Transport Terminal Stations (Bus/Lrt/Monorail/ERL/KTM)

Larkin Terminal traders get help
Rizalman Hammim

THE Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry has taken steps to "adopt" the traders at the Larkin public transport terminal as part of an effort to help them improve their business and overcome any problems faced.


INSIDE VIEW: Traders at Larkin Terminal complain of high charges imposed by the management company.

Minister Datuk Shahrir Abdul Samad said the move by the ministry was the first, entailing the formation of a committee comprising traders and ministry officials.

"Previously, whenever the ministry was mentioned, people would immediately associate us with enforcement or price control.

"We also have a duty to help improve businesses, especially for the small traders."


He said this after a dialogue with the Larkin Terminal Traders' Association recently.

The traders had voiced their dissatisfaction over several issues during the dialogue, especially on the high rent and parking charges imposed by the management of the terminal, Damansara Assets Sdn Bhd.

Among other grouses heard included the unsatisfactory business environment at the terminal.

Shahrir asked for the setting up of a committee, made up of representatives from the ministry's Johor branch, the traders and the management company, to discuss the problems and recommend solutions.

"The committee will have two weeks to meet and come up with suggestions, after which they will present them to me for further action," said Shahrir.

"If other government agencies are needed in the meetings, then we will invite them too."

Shahrir said he chose to introduce the initiative to help traders in Johor Baru because he was also the member of parliament for the area.

"This will be a test and if it is successful, we will introduce it to other areas as well."

I agree walking from the puduraya bus station to the STAR LRT station is a nightmare.Many drug addicts/dodgy characters will attempt to talk to you into buying crap or lure you to a dark corner.One of my friend was approached by a gang inside the STAR LRT station and forced to give them his wallet.

I'd really love to see our PM and former PM walk this route.

New bus station for Jelapang
Wednesday August 6, 2008
By IVAN LOH
TheStar

A NEW RM30mil bus terminal with environmentally-friendly landscaping is being planned for Bandar Meru Raya in Jelapang, Ipoh, after years of delay.

State Education, Local Govern-ment, Housing and Public Transport Committee chairman Nga Kor Ming said the project would be completely different from the one proposed earlier.

The terminal, he said, located on a 4.8ha plot next to the Jelapang North-South Expressway (PLUS) toll, will have a garden and surrounded by trees instead of a concrete fencing.

He said the greenery surrounding would make the terminal more pleasant.

Nga said they were in the final stages of negotiating with a consortium of bus operators on the proposed terminal.

“The consortium will fund the entire project,” he said.

If all goes well, the project will start at the end of the year. It will take two years to build the terminal.

Nga also said the consortium would also have to replace the aging city buses with 300 new vehicles, which were estimated to cost some RM180 million, to complement the terminal.

“With the new terminal, buses and new routes within the Kinta Valley, we hope to encourage more people to use public transport.”

He said the whole purpose of having a terminal next to the toll plaza was to enable express buses from Penang or Kuala Lumpur have quick access to Ipoh instead of having to enter the city and get caught in traffic jams.

Perak Omnibus Operators Association president Yeoh Choo Hoon, during its annual dinner on Friday, thanked the state government to let the operators plan, build and manage their own terminal.

Puts Puduraya and Hentian Duta in KL to shame.

Kuching– a focal point for travelers
Sunday, February 17th, 2008
Borneo Post

IT’S a mini KL Central of sorts. Once in operation, in about 24 months from now, the RM60 million project would be the first of its kind not only in Kuching but the whole of Sarawak.

It would be tranformed into a single, consolidated transportation hub that would immensely improve conveyance service for thousands of commuters in and around Kuching daily.

With its implementation, traffic congestions would be alleviated while passenger safety enhanced, jobs created and economic growth stimulated.

Such a user-friendly facility is no pipe dream but a vision of the State government that is steadily taking shape.

Aptly named Kuching Sentral, it would be the only fully-integrated regional transportation terminal in the State capital and, for that matter, Sarawak.

Strategically located at the Mile 61/2 junction of Penrissen Road and Airport Road, this new public transport artery, for which earthwork started last December, is only about three minutes’ drive from Kuching International Airport and 20 minutes from Kuching City.

Because it is located away from the city, traffic gridlocks can be avoided. Indeed, it is a timely initiative to significantly improve traffic flow in and around the city. Roads in the area are being widened into dual-carriageways complete with traffic lights.

A transportation hub or transport interchange is where traffic is exchanged across several modes which may include railway, tramway, metro or rapid transit, bus, coach, automobile, truck, airplane, spacecraft, ship, ferry, pedestrian, or any other kind of transport.

The term is used both for passenger and freight transfers. Some hubs also allow transport to be exchanged between the same kind of transport modes.

The completion of Kuching Sentral two years from now will, therefore, provide a focal point for travellers, integrating different modes of transportation such as stage buses, taxis, hired vans as well as sea and river crafts.

Daily express buses to and from regional centres like Sri Aman, Betong, Sarikei, Sibu, Mukah, Bintulu and Miri as well those from Pontianak, Indonesia and Sungai Tujuh, Brunei, will be operating from the terminal.

Right from the point of arrival, it will be convenient for commuters with city buses providing a seamless link to any destination within Kuching city and regional buses linking them to major destinations throughout Sarawak. Alternatively, commuters can choose other transport options like taxis and hired vans.

Built with 11 bays for car rentals, 42 for regional buses, and an additional 67 for city buses, Kuching Sentral will be big enough to support a high passenger traffic at any given time, at the same time, serving as a regional transportation hub capable of not only accommodating high traffic volume but also meeting the needs of shoppers with a modern complex free from parking problems.

Like most transportation hubs in major cities of the world, the design of Kuching Sentral incorporates a shopping centre that promises modernity, convenience and comfort not only to travellers but also shoppers.

Poised to be a retail and transportation hub in the State capital, this seven-acre three-storey bus terminal cum shopping complex will set a new standard in the way people travel and shop.

Cafes and restaurants will be provided, and additional facilities like luggage storage, premium rest rooms, Wi Fi, ATM machines and prayer rooms, among others, have been planned to ensure a comfortable transit.

Commuters alighting at this facility will also be greeted with a pleasant and welcoming ambiance — a 25,000 sq ft supermarket, and a 21,000 sq ft departmental store together with restaurants, fashion boutiques, beauty and healthcare centres, gift shops, pharmacies and many more.

A total of 152 retail units, and over 30 specialty kiosks will be available … in addition to more than 380 open and basement parking bays equipped with CCTVs and guarded at strategic zones.

The fully integrated transport terminal is part of the State government’s vision and effort to improve bus services in the city. With an estimated capacity of 12,000 daily passengers, it represents a giant leap forward vis-ā-vis the betterment of public transport in the city.

Setting a new milestone in the State’s public transport system, Kuching Sentral bears the signature foreign architectural influence. The new interchange will replace the existing bus station and play an important part in the regeneration of the town centre.

Spearheading the development is Permodalan Amanah Saham Sarawak (Assar) Sdn Bhd, a company incorporated to enhance the performance of the State’s unit trust fund, Assar.

The model of the Assar-owned Kuching Sentral was unveiled by Chief Minister Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud on Jan 31.

Among those present at the ceremony were Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Alfred Jabu, Housing Minister Dato Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg, Land Development Minister Dato Sri Dr James Masing, Assistant Minister of Environment Dr Abang Abdul Rauf Abang Zen and Assar chairman Tan Sri Bujang Nor.

Welcome to Malaysia where words like "Walk" are used in every city's broad pedestrian walkways ( Bintang Walk started this which is cool at first too )

In the Klang Valley we've got tons of Damansaras while Penang had got all the Bayans.

Terminal sementara selesa

Oleh WAN NAJIB WAN DAUD



TERMINAL Pengangkutan Sementara Penang Sentral akan digunakan untuk kemudahan orang ramai sehingga kerja-kerja pembinaan hab pengangkutan Penang Sentral siap dibangunkan kelak. - Gambar SAZALI CHE DIN

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



BUTTERWORTH 7 Ogos - Terminal Pengangkutan Sementara Penang Sentral yang dirasmikan oleh Menteri Kewangan Kedua, Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop 20 Julai lalu merupakan rentetan daripada salah satu inisiatif kerajaan Pusat untuk menjadikan Pulau Pinang sebagai gerbang pengangkutan di bawah Wilayah Ekonomi Koridor Utara (NCER).

Walaupun hanya bersifat sementara, pembangunan Penang Sentral sudah cukup untuk membuktikan komitmen kerajaan Pusat bagi menyediakan kemudahan yang selesa kepada sistem pengangkutan bersepadu.

Dibangunkan oleh Malaysian Resources Corporation Bhd. (MRCB) dengan kerjasama Pelaburan Hartanah Bumiputera Bhd. (PHBB), terminal sementara itu menelan kos RM5 juta melibatkan pembinaan bangunan satu tingkat di atas tanah hampir satu hektar dan diuruskan oleh anak syarikat milik penuh MRCB, Semasa Sentral Sdn. Bhd.

Ia turut menyediakan 33 ruang kaunter tiket, 28 platform bas, 46 petak teksi, surau lelaki dan wanita, tandas awam, eskalator untuk pejalan kaki menaiki feri, kaunter polis serta kemudahan-kemudahan asas untuk keselesaan pengguna.

Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif PHBB, Kamarul Ariffin Othman berkata, memandangkan kedudukannya bersebelahan dengan terminal feri, ia mampu memberi keselesaan kepada 4,500 pengguna dalam sehari atau purata 80,000 pengguna pengangkutan awam sebulan.

"Terminal sementara mencatatkan sejarah pembinaannya kerana projek pertama diberikan kelulusan Perakuan Siap dan Pematuhan (CCC) oleh Majlis Perbandaran Seberang Perai (MPSP)," katanya di sini baru-baru ini.

Projek Penang Sentral dibangunkan dengan nilai pembangunan kasarnya (GDV) RM2 bilion berjalan mengikut jadual dan mengikut kaedah pantas dan disasarkan siap sepenuhnya tahun 2015.

Pembangunan Penang Sentral dijangka bermula suku pertama tahun depan dengan fasa pertama menelan kos RM300 juta manakala fasa berikutnya akan berjalan berdasarkan jadual projek.

Ia disasarkan untuk mengukuhkan Pulau Pinang sebagai hab NCER dan dibina di kawasan seluas 12.8 hektar, berdekatan terminal feri Sultan Abdul Halim di Butterworth.

Menurut Kamarul Ariffin, terminal itu akan diuruskan oleh anak syarikat milik penuh MRCB, Semasa Sentral Sdn. Bhd., dan menawarkan perkhidmatan seperti pengurusan lalu lintas yang melibatkan laluan bas henti-henti dan bas ekspres, teksi, khidmat pelanggan, operasi dan penyenggaraan bangunan.

Memandangkan kedudukan terminal yang strategik, Kamarul Ariffin berkata, ia boleh dijadikan pintu masuk utama ke Pulau Pinang kerana adanya perkhidmatan pengangkutan awam lain seperti feri dan kereta api.

Setakat ini katanya, terminal sementara mempunyai 49 syarikat bas yang berdaftar dan akan beroperasi di situ bagi mengambil dan menurun penumpang untuk ke destinasi di seluruh negara.

Namun katanya, pihaknya menjangkakan pertambahan bilangan pengendali bas terutamanya menjelang musim perayaan nanti.

Bagaimanapun, pengendali bas awam RapidPenang Sdn. Bhd., telah menjadikan terminal itu sebagai hab operasi mereka di Seberang Perai dan beroperasi selepas ia dirasmikan.
