yes, it will. when the people from klang travel to KL that takes 3 hours by using LRT, which the system will cut through the residential area, makes the traveling time increase, and more time wasting on traveling using LRT compare to bus or private car travelling time from Klang to KL by federal highway!

Yes, but pouring that among of money into SPNB as Private Finance Initiatives, doesnt mean that SPNB will use that money solely to create a new LRT system within Selangor. SPNB is responsible for the Klang Valley, not Selangor only.

I have no objection on LRT system, but just using the whole amount of money for LRT alone, why not consider create a better bus system and intergrate the bus system into the current and future LRT system?? and the rest of money can be used for upgrading the LRT Stations and buy more rolling stocks.

And dont forget Rapid KL is responsible for managing the Klang Valley Transportation, not Selangor only.

LRT belongs in urban areas. Suburban developments like north Shah Alam and north Klang and Kota Kemuning do not have the density to justify an LRT line.

Only one part of this line is actually going to connect to KL. If I stretch my mind, I can imagine that an LRT line from KL to Kelena Jaya to Klang will move alot of people...and might be necessary in 5-10 years. Ive even said that the LRT line extension to Subang Jaya should be the 1st phase of a line to Damansara, and that the Kelana Jaya line should be extended to Shah Alam....

And there are a lot of buses on the KL-Klang route, and the KTM line already exists too...if the buses and KTM were running every 3-5 minutes, that would get a lot of cars off the federal highway...and cost alot less than LRT.

If you are living in Puchong this line isnt going to help you very much. Puchong needs a direct line into KL, not via Bandar Tasik Selatan.

Public Transportation planning for the Klang Valley requires KL and Selangor to work together.

Cheers, m

That's how long it would probably take to extend the LRT line. It will be next year...then next year...then next year. Remember the double tracking to Ipoh..I was still in secondary school when they said it would finish 'next year'. I am in my second year of university now and it's still 'next year'.

By the time Toyo's plan is realized after many 'next year's..the LRT would be necessary..hahaha.

I suppose you don't get what 'estimate' and 'exaggeration' mean.

All Airlines Can Now Offer City Check-in At KL Sentral
Updated : 12-07-2007


KUALA LUMPUR, July 12 (Bernama) -- Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) will have 10 new check-in desks at the Kuala Lumpur City Air Terminal (KL CAT) at KL Sentral by July 23.

This will extend from three to 43 the number of airlines based at KLIA's main terminal which can offer the same check-in facilities at the city centre, Express Rail Link said in a statement here Thursday.

Currently only Malaysia Airlines, Cathay Pacific Airways and Royal Brunei Airlines offer city check-in service at KL CAT.

The 10 AirportConnect CUTE (Common Use Terminal Equipment) check-in desks will be installed by global IT firm SITA.

ERL operates the high-speed train KLIA Express between KL Sentral and KLIA.

ERL's chief executive officer, Dr Aminuddin Adnan, said talks are underway for more airlines to offer the city check-in service at KL Sentral.

The Kuala Lumpur monorail system in Malaysia opened 31 August 2003, and serves 11 stations running 8.6 km with two parallel elevated tracks. It connects Kuala Lumpur's main station KL Sentral with the "Golden Triangle". It was built for RM1.18 billion by KL Infrastructure Group Berhad (KL Infra) that holds a 40-year concession to operate the monorail. The system utilises permanently coupled 2-car trains, which are able to accommodate 158 passengers each during regular operations. The monorail carriages themselves were built by a Malaysian company.

Emirates to offer check-in service at KL Sentral
July 26 2007


Quote:
The airline says in the initial phase, the check-in counters will service Dubai-bound travellers only


DUBAI-BASED Emirates Airlines will become the latest airline to offer city check-in service for its passengers at Kuala Lumpur Sentral (KL Sentral) station, when it opens a check-in counter on July 30.

Currently, only Malaysia Airlines, Cathay Pacific Airways and Royal Brunei Airlines offer this service at KL Sentral.

In a statement issued yesterday, Emirates said in the initial phase, the check-in counters will service Dubai-bound travellers only.

Operated by KL Airport Services Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of DRB-HICOM Bhd, the Emirates check-in counters will offer the same check-in services as that offered at the KL International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang, including baggage handling, as well as the issuance of standard boarding passes and a luggage claim tags for checked -in baggage.

"All checked-in bags will be tagged to the travellers' destination and will be automatically transferred to the corresponding flight via the KLIA Express, which links KL Sentral with KLIA.

"Each piece is bar-coded for easy tracking of baggage from point-to-point ensuring it reaches the passengers' corresponding destination," said Emirates.

The Emirates check-in counters at KL Sentral will open five hours prior to each departing flight and will close two hours prior to departure.
