Not at KL, but interesting nonetheless. At the state of Perak lies the TBM Refurbishing Plant where tunnel boring machines are sent there to be repaired, refurbished and upgraded for future works.

The TBM components below are slated to be used in the construction of the Sungai Buloh-Putrajaya MRT line.

Imagon haha might see it through the first world country tinted glasses but KL or Malaysia is a typical upper middle income /developing country. So we are definitely comparable to chile, saudi arabia ,argentina etc.
Research and studies show that our public transport is among the top among the developing countries so i think you know how to manage your expectations once you arrive here.

No problem, in fact my interest to know KL focuses, how the country has changed in the last decades, nowadays it is considered one of the emerging economies of Asia, however, I am sure it is not the eigth wonder, even a city of first world has its defects, otherwise it would be very boring to live day to day.

Okay, fine then.

Byeong,I was just expressing my worry (sorry if it didn't translate well) that this guy would somehow mistook KL for a very commendable city while I still think KL definitely has room to grow and improve which it WILL but over time.If not, he can just give the city a visit in about 20 years. (If such high standards were what he expected and desired, which he has clearly denied earlier...thanks man)

Kuala Lumpur's MRT 1 phase 2 is almost complete. The underground station is 99.5% complete. According to the news, KL's MRT 1 might open on 16th of July 2017 which is 2 weeks ahead of schedule. This is same with Phase 1 where it also open 2 weeks earlier than the expected schedule which is 15 December 2016.

The whole MRT 1 is build ahead of schedule and below budget. The budgeted cost for this 51km MRT line is RM23 billion but so far they only spent RM21 billion which means RM2 billion below the budgeted cost.

MRT 1 have 31 station (24 elevated station with 7 underground station) + 3 reserve station for future. (total 34 station)

Each underground station have its own individual design themes in line with each locale.

For example this Merdeka Station (Independent Station as it was just besides Stadium Merdeka a stadium where malaysia celebrate 1st independence) have the theme of Malaysia's independence. You could see the 14 point of Star (from Malaysia's flag) which represent the unity between 13 member states and federal government.



The wall is decorated with Malaysia's constitution.



Muzium Negara Station (National Museum Station)

The station is decorated with Malaysia's history like old picture and heritage stuff.



You could see the one of the entrance and exit of Muzium Negara Station is just infront Malaysia's National Museum.

TRX station (the theme of the station is islamic finance and you could see many islamic pattern around the this station)



Pasar Seni Station which is near to the meeting point between Sungai Klang and Sungai Gombak, is ‘Confluence’ (Kuala Lumpur also means muddy confluence). You could see there are 4 maps showcasing the development of KL since the 19th Century. The Confluence is where KL originated from

UITP honours Prasarana for rail engineering innovation
By OOI TEE CHING - May 18, 2017 @ 10:01am

Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Union Internationale des Transports Publics (UITP) – the international body for public transport, praised Prasarana Malaysia Bhd for creating a mobile application which saves time on railway maintenance.

At the Montreal 2017 Global Public Transport Summit, which ended today after a three-day conference, UITP accorded Prasarana’s unit Rapid Rail with its Certificate of Recognition for the Vehicle On-Board Computer (VOBC) Error Code Translator App.

Presented to Rapid Rail Chairman Azhar Noraini by UITP Secretary General, Alain Flausch on the opening day of the summit, the certificate was in recognition of which was developed by a team of innovative engineers.

The certification was awarded to Rapid Rail for managing and operating its rail business, after the app was selected as one of the most innovative and successful public transport projects in the Asia-Pacific region.

Developed in 2015 by a six-man team, the smartphone app had previously also won three other awards – the Gold Award at the ICQCC BANGKOK 2016; the Gold Award at the Malaysia Productivity Corporation Team Excellence Regional Convention in 2015 and the 3-Star Gold Award at the National Team Excellence Convention two years ago.

The mobile app helps roving engineers at Rapid Rail’s LRT Kelana Jaya Line to save time in identifying and translating the VOBC error code during cases of failure of the on-board control on the train.

Before the development and introduction of the app, engineers would need to carry out the task manually, spending an average time of 8 minutes. The app allows it to be completed in less than a minute.

Apart from the Kelana Jaya LRT Line, Rapid Rail also operates two other LRT lines – LRT Ampang Line and LRT Sri Petaling Line, the Monorail Line and MRT Line 1 Sungai Buloh – Kajang; managing a combined daily ridership of more than half a million passengers in the Klang Valley.

“We are truly honoured to have this splendid recognition from UITP. It has always been our guide and benchmark in transformation of public transport services and urban mobility in Malaysia”, said Prasarana’s president and group chief executive officer Datuk Seri Azmi Abdul Aziz.

Azmi also delivered a talk on the opening day of the summit on May 15 - entitled - ‘Malaysia’s Transformation in Public Transport – Taking Our Cities into The Future’.

His presentation focused on Malaysia’s transformation in Public Transport to achieve 40 per cent public transport modal share by 2030.

Kuala Lumpur MRT 2 line progress

https://www.facebook.com/MRTMalaysia...10684732296256

MPS, STATE ASSEMBLYMEN, LOCAL COUNCILLORS BRIEFED ON MRT SSP LINE PROGRESS

Kuala Lumpur, 23 May 2017: Mass Rapid Transit Corporation Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp) held a project progress update briefing session for Members of Parliament, State Assemblymen and Local Councillors whose areas were involved in the construction of the MRT Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya (SSP) Line.

The briefing session was held at the Klang Valley MRT Project Training Centre at Sungai Buloh and was carried out of MRT Corp Project Director SSP Line Dato’ Amiruddin Ma’aris.

The visitors were told that construction for the SSP Line was now moving at a good pace according to plan and progress was at 7.5%.
Quote:
A total of 15,241 SBG units will be launched to construct 1,269 standard spans for the elevated alignment of the MRT SSP Line. For non-standard spans, construction will use the Trestles System Supported by Crane, and the Balanced Cantilever Segmental Launching methods.

For Underground works, Amiruddin said work was progressing well with progress at 8.7%. Work at all 11 underground MRT stations was advancing swiftly with most works focussing on utilities relocation, diaphragm wall and capping beam works, with excavation for station boxes and shafts.

A total of 12 TBMs will be used to excavate the tunnels for the SSP Line’s 13.5km underground section. Of these, eight will be refurbished machines which were used on the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line, while the remaining four will be new TBMs.




Alignment of MRT 2



At 52.2 km, it might be world's 2nd longest driverless metro line after Dubai Metro Red line which is currently 52.1 km, but will be get extension of 14.5 km.

http://www.theedgemarkets.com/articl...ruction-sector
Construction sector
Maintain overweight: We have identified four mega rail projects that will be rolled out over the next two to three years. These include the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL), Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High-Speed Rail (HSR), Gemas-Johor Baru electrified double-tracking (EDT) project and mass rapid transit 3 (MRT3) Circle Line. Collectively, these mega rail projects will have a total cost of RM171 billion(Usd40bil).

The 600km ECRL (RM55 billion)(usd 12.8bil)will link Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang and Selangor. Financing will come from the Export-Import Bank of China, while China Communications Construction Co Ltd will lead the construction works. The Land Public Transport Commission has given its conditional approval for the ECRL which is now undergoing a three-month public inspection. Final approval is targeted for June and construction is to begin in July.

In December 2016, Malaysia and Singapore inked a bilateral agreement to implement the 350km HSR. The joint development partner has been appointed and tenders for the asset company will be called by year end, while the infrastructure works are expected in the first quarter of 2018. Media reports have placed the HSR’s cost at RM60 billion(14usd bil) .


The Gemas-Johor Baru section (191km) is the final EDT stretch from the north to south of the peninsula. A consortium of three state-owned Chinese contractors was awarded the RM9 billion(usd2.1bil) job in October 2016. Work has yet to start due to issues with state authorities.

Also dubbed the Circle Line, MRT3 will largely be underground, providing interchange stations with other radial rail lines. Currently at a feasibility study stage, the 45km to 48km MRT3 is said to cost RM50 billion(usd11.68 bil) .

Risks include a pull-out of Chinese investments and/or funding would impact some of these mega rail projects.

While the bulk of these mega rail projects will be led by foreign contractors, we estimate that 39% could be undertaken by locals, potentially generating RM67 billion(usd 15.65 bil) worth of job flows. The significance of these mega rail projects to the construction sector should not be underestimated. To illustrate, domestic job wins for listed contracts hit a high of RM28 billion in 2012 and RM56 billion in 2016 when MRT1 and MRT2 were rolled out.

Our stock picks include: Gamuda Bhd, with a strong track record in rail jobs such as the Kaohsiung MRT, northern EDT, MRT1 and MRT2, which targets to add RM10 billion to its order book over the next one to two years from these rail jobs; George Kent (M) Bhd, the only local player with expertise in rail-related systems, which has experience in Ampang light rail transit (LRT) extension systems, being the LRT3 project delivery partner, and in MRT2 track works; IJM Corp Bhd, a beneficiary of the ECRL via a 60% stake in Kuantan Port and a 20% stake in Malaysia-China Kuantan Industrial Park; and Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd, which is in negotiations to develop a transport terminal for the HSR in Bandar Malaysia and can leverage on its track record in transit-oriented developments. — Hong Leong Investment Bank Research, May 15
