Subang Jaya residents with the help of their assemblyman Datuk Lee Hwa Beng came up with their proposed route and halts for the extended Putra LRT line into Subang Jaya. However, news is that Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad (SPNB) has ignored some of the proposed halts and is going ahead with their own route instead. StarMetro finds out.

Subang Jaya assemblyman Datuk Lee Hwa Beng is upset. Informed sources have told him that Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad (SPNB) is bypassing three halts that he and residents had proposed for the extended Putra LRT service into the township.

SPNB is the holding company under the Finance Ministry that owns the rail lines.

“I’ve been told that Prasarana has finalised its own routes and is about to present it to the Cabinet for final approval.

“Based on what they have finalised, they are bypassing the Sunway, Lagoon Perdana and the USJ 1 halts,” said Lee.

He said SPNB would be making a mistake if it excluded the three important halts.

“If Prasarana continues with their finalised route, it definitely won’t be successful, and this will be a mistake like they did with Putra and Star LRT lines,” he said.

Lee said that when news of the Putra LRT line extension into Subang Jaya was first announced by the Prime Minister, he had sat down with residents and the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) to draw out the route.

“We presented it to SPNB but it seemed that they never took into consideration our proposal nor consulted the residents who know best,” he continued.

He said based on the current route, SPNB was excluding low and medium-cost areas where people who would take public transport lived.

“Shopping complexes are places that people go to, so the Sunway Pyramid stop is an important one to have. Sunway also has thousands of car park for commuters to park their vehicles,” he said.

“There is no doubt that extending the line into Sunway can be quite expensive but the place is a big catchment area. There’s a wide coverage in just the Lagoon Perdana area alone, especially since Kg Lindungan and Kg Medan are also within close proximity. I would estimate easily 50,000 people there,” Lee said.

“I’m also disappointed with how they would miss out USJ 1 with blocks of low and middle-income flats there. You have to look at the present situation when accessing things.

“For example, the line from Sentul is usually packed mainly because of the lower income groups of people there,” said Lee.

The seven initial halts that were proposed by Lee and the residents are the Subang Jaya KTM station, SS14 and SS15, Bandar Sunway, Lagoon Perdana, USJ 1, between The Summit and Mydin, and finally, on the plot of MPSJ land in USJ 8.

StarMetro had reported Lee as saying that he hoped SPNB would look into ways to expand the routes such as including new areas and not change those that have been proposed.

The route by SPNB is said to be at the Subang Jaya KTM station, before heading to Jalan Jengka and Kesas highway, and ending up at Persiaran Kewajipan.

Residents Committee (JKP) Zone 5 (which covers The Summit right up to Angsana Apartments in USJ 1) chairman Kamarudin Rasol said he was disappointed to learn of the news.

“I believe all residents in my area support the initial proposal by Datuk Lee to have a halt in USJ 1. It gave them a glimmer of hope because they can take the LRT in future and leave their cars at home. At present, the jam here is getting from bad to worse especially during peak hours at 8am, noon and 5pm,” he said.

“Here at Angsana, there are 10 blocks of low-cost apartments and a lot of residents use the buses to get to work. We thought we could save on petrol and no longer need to bear with the jam in future so this (news) comes as a disappointment,” said Kamarudin.

JKP Zone 4 chairman Goh Hai Thun feels the same.

“Residents would definitely use LRT over cars once there’s a hub here. The line would serve at least a population of 200,000 stretching from residential areas of PJS 5 to 11. Moreover, these are middle-income group residents who rely on public transportation a lot. Not forgetting the Monash and Sunway College students who number to about 10,000 to 15,000 a day. If the LRT is convenient, people would prefer using it as a congestion relief,” said Goh.

Lee said he hoped Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy would look into the matter that take into account residents’ needs.

“The prime minister had also said that whatever petrol subsidy that had been withdrawn would go into upgrading of infrastructure, and this is one of them. So it’s no excuse for SPNB to say the cost is expensive and they do not have budget,” he said.

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.

LRT link for Klang folk, too
Friday November 23, 2007
By Elan Perumal

THE proposed LRT project connecting Subang Jaya to Klang will come sooner than expected if Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo has his way.

Since the Federal Government has given the state the nod, Dr Khir said there was no reason why the people of Klang should be deprived of the LRT service.

He said the proposed link between Subang Jaya and Klang was not a mere hype but was a genuine move towards enhancing the public transportation system in the state.

“The project will be implemented soon after the Kelana Jaya-Subang Jaya link is completed. I am sure that many commuters in Shah Alam and other places along the Subang Jaya-Klang destination will be excited.

“The state will push hard for the implementation of the project as it will provide another form of transportation for commuters who are currently depending on buses, Komuter train, taxi service to travel between the two destinations,” he told Star Metro in an interview yesterday.

Dr Khir said the extended LRT link-up was expected to take a load off the increasingly congested roads in the Klang Valley especially the Kuala Lumpur-Klang Federal Highway.

He said the congestion along the highway at peak hours was getting worse especially for traffic heading towards Klang.

”The LRT link will not only take commuters from the two destinations but will also link Klang to Kuala Lumpur via Subang Jaya.

“The service will make a great difference for those travelling between Subang Jaya, Shah Alam and Klang,” he said, adding that they would be enjoying a fast and smooth ride.

Once the proposed link had been implemented, Dr Khir said, the state would be also looking into a sub system servicing the internal routes in Shah Alam and Klang.

With more and more development in the state, he said, LRT would be the answer for the public transportation system.

“We all know that LRT provides us fast, smooth and effective service and this is in line with the demand of the current age where people are becoming increasingly busy and time is something very valuable,” he said

Meanwhile, Dr Khir said the government was not too pleased with the service provided by public transportation operators in the state.

He urged the operators of public transportation to be more competent.

While looking into providing comfort, he said, they must be focused on offering regular and quck service to commuters.

“I am happy to see a lot of new and good looking buses on the roads but the service must be improved especially when it comes to local routes in small towns,” he added.

Made-in-Malaysia monorail launched

Made-in-Malaysia monorail launched

By SHAHANAAZ HABIB

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia has unveiled another first – its very own homegrown monorail.

The Sutra monorail was developed by the Scomi Group over the last 12 months.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, who launched the new monorail yesterday, called it a significant milestone.

“Today, Scomi has become one of only three major players in the world’s monorail business and has successfully developed a homegrown Malaysian monorail system ready to take on the world,” he said yesterday.

Najib said it was a pleasure to note Scomi aggressively pursuing deals in countries like India, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Syria, Egypt and South Korea collectively valued at RM6bil.

He said regions like Eastern Europe and South America with emerging economies, too, were worth looking into because it was only a matter of time before they needed to consider investing in modern, relatively-inexpensive and practical modes of public transportation.

At a press conference later, Najib said that Scomi, being a homegrown company with very high value local content, had an advantage and was in a “very competitive position” to be considered for monorail projects in the country.

He said the global world was very competitive and it was essential to position Malaysia and Malaysian companies internationally.

“We must build our reputation so that our name is synonymous with reliability, quality, technology and competitive pricing,” he said.

Chairman of Scomi Group Bhd Tan Sri Asmat Kamaludin said total investment for the Sutra monorail was about RM35mil including for research, development and factory expansion.

He said 30 personnel members including 23 engineers and experts in areas of structural and mechanical engineering, design, quality, safety and procurement worked on it for 12 months at Scomi’s manufacturing facility in Rawang which was equipped with its own 1km of monorail test track.

KTM Komuter is an electrified commuter train service first introduced in 1995, catering especially to commuters in Kuala Lumpur and the surrounding suburban areas. It is a popular mode of transportation for commuters working in Kuala Lumpur, as they can travel to the city without the hassle of traffic congestion. Coaches are modern and air-conditioned. For those who drive to the stations/halts, 'Park & Ride' facility is provided at a nominal charge.


RM3.2m to upgrade Kajang station
Tuesday December 4, 2007

A TOTAL of RM3.2mil was allocated to upgrade facilities at the Kajang Komuter train station to make it disabled-friendly, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy.

In a written reply to Datuk Yap Pian Hon (BN – Serdang), he said the allocation was meant to fix the roof of the platform, extend the length of the platform and also to include a lift, ramp and toilet for the disabled.

Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd also upgraded facilities at the Serdang and Bangi stations with allocations of RM1.41mil and RM380,000 respectively.

About RM150,000 was needed to maintain a Komuter train station each year, Chan said.

The Serdang Komuter station serviced 1.057 million passengers in the first seven months of this year, generating RM2.456mil in revenue.

The Kajang station had a total of 798,156 passengers with RM2.435mil in revenue and Bangi station 224,326 passengers for the same period, generating RM676,581 in revenue.

NOTE : Kajang is famous for its sate Kajang (alternate spelling satay), a form of skewered barbecued meat. Informally, Kajang is known as the "Satay Town", and is famous among tourists and locals alike.

Though Kajang is a well-known tourist destination for satay, tourist hardly stay overnight. Hence, there isn't many hotel accommodation available. Most notable is the Metro Inn which is located approximately 2km from the heart of Kajang town. However, as Kajang is strategically located, many prefer to stay in Central KL (Renaissance, Hotel Equatorial, etc) or even Putrajaya (Shangri-La, Merriot,etc).

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.

ERL passenger wins Dubai trip
Thursday December 13, 2007
By OH ING YEEN and ARYSTLE KUAN




Wonderful surprise: Vellayatham showing his flight ticket and other gifts he
received for being the 20-millionth ERL passenger at KLIA in Sepang
yesterday. — Bernama


KUALA LUMPUR: It never occurred to Vellayatham Sockalingam, 71, that after returning from India, he would have to prepare for a trip to Dubai.

The surprise treat is his prize for being the 20-millionth passenger on the KLIA Express yesterday.

He and the others on the 10am train that departed from the KL International Airport had earlier been told that one of them would be the winner of the special trip.

And amid loud countdown by the guests, air horn blasts and confetti showers over a balloon arch, he walked through the ticket gate of the KL City Air Terminal at KL Sentral here at 10.28am to clinch the prize.

Vellayatham, from Cheras, was quickly ushered on stage to receive his economy class ticket to Dubai from Emirates Airlines country manager Alban Lee.

He also received a coffeetable book on Express Rail Link, the operators of the KLIA Express, and complimentary train tickets.

Speaking to the press later, ERL chief executive officer Dr Aminuddin Adnan said: “We have much to celebrate. We began the high-speed train link to KLIA in 2002 and today we have surpassed the 20-million mark.”

“It is a humble achievement, but one we are proud of,” he added.

He announced that ERL would soon launch a three-month campaign that offers, among others, a daily giveaway of handphones, a fortnightly prize of flight tickets and a monthly prize of a large-screen LCD television.

ERL To Offer Check-out Service At KL Sentral Early Next Year
From Umi Hani Sharani

STOCKHOLM, Oct 1 (Bernama) -- Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd, the operator of the high-speed direct rail service between the Kuala Lumpur International Airport and the city, plans to provide a check-out service at the Kuala Lumpur Sentral Station for passengers arriving on board Malaysia Airlines flights early next year.

Its chief executive officer, Dr Aminuddin Adnan, said this will be done via the installation of a RM100 million high speed conveyor belt at the airport which will enable baggage to be transported to the satellite building almost five times faster before being shipped off by the rail service to ERL's KL Sentral station.

"With this system, passengers can walk around KLIA, maybe do a little shopping, before boarding the train and picking up their baggage at KL Sentral," he told Malaysian media recently at the World Route Development Forum here.

According to Dr Aminuddin, the high speed baggage handling system to be built by German firm Siemens AG and funded by the government, will be ready by November and will undergo a trial run for a month.

Baggage will be tagged by bar codes which allow passengers to keep track of them, and there will be no time limit for them to pick up the bags.

"We are talking to Malaysia Airlines to package this service with their sales. We believe this will be more attractive to the foreigners," he said.

He added that ERL has yet to start talking to other airlines for this service until the service agreement is finalised with Malaysia Airlines.

Security, he said, will not be an issue as all the necessary procedures involving the authorities will be taken at the check-out counter.

"There will be a slight increase in baggage handling manpower, but security won't be an issue," he said.

Dr Aminuddin said the firm expects the check-out service to achieve, if not surpass, the volume of the check-in service currently operating at KL Sentral.

"About 20 percent of the passengers use our check-in service currently, and we hope to attract the same kind of passenger numbers, or maybe extra 5-10 percent passengers. It depends on the promotion by airlines as well," he noted.

He also said that ERL is in talks with several airlines including Thai Airways, KLM and Air France to open check-in service counters at KL Sentral.
Update:
ERL targets European passengers
13-12-2007: By Sharmila Ganapathy

KUALA LUMPUR: Rail operator Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERL) says its checkout facility that will open at the KL Sentral city air terminal next year is expected to increase its passenger numbers by at least 5%.

The facility targets European and other long-distant travellers.

“Europe is a good market for us based on our research. Apart from the Asean market, we have a huge customer base from China and Australia,” ERLSB chief executive officer Aminuddin Adnan told The Edge Financial Daily.

Currently, international travellers make up 40% of the rail operator’s passengers.

ERLSB hopes the introduction of the facility and its collaboration with global travel distribution system, Amadeus, will improve the ratio.

Aminuddin said ERLSB would review the model Amadeus had designed for it next month before formalising a partnership agreement.

Amadeus is Western Europe’s largest online travel agency in 2006, with a 64.2% market share.

He added ERLSB was keen to work with similar operators, such as Abacus and Galileo, which have strong presence in the Asian and European markets respectively.

The rollout of the checkout system will be slightly delayed from the original date of January 2008, due to power supply issues.

“It will be happening only in March 2008, as the power supply to run full operations will only be ready in March,” Aminuddin said.

ERLSB yesterday celebrated its 20 millionth passenger. Seventy-one year-old Malaysian S Vellayutham walked away with an Emirates Airlines’ return ticket to Dubai.

Aminuddin said ERLSB notched an average of 5,200 passengers a day for KLIA Express and another 7,300 a day for KLIA Transit.

The operator has carried more than 4 million passengers this year, bringing its cumulative ridership to 21 million passengers.

Express Rail Link (ERL) baggage project

The crucial links
Saturday December 15, 2007
By DAVID TAN




Wucherer: Siemens’ new system allows for baggage transfer at 36kph

SIEMENS AG sees the implementation of an ultra modern transportation infrastructure system in Malaysia as one of its key projects that will lift the country to a fully developed modern status.

Its executive vice-president Dr-Ing. Klaus Wucherer says that the group is now bidding for the 384km double-tracking railway project connecting the northern region and Thailand and the high-speed train project connecting Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.

“Malaysia has the necessary power generation and distribution infrastructure, and the industrial products. Besides roads, ports, and airports, it also needs an ultra modern railway infrastructure and an efficient healthcare system.

“We want to introduce to Malaysia the 350km per hour high-speed train, which exists currently in Russia, Spain, and China,” he says.

This year, the global giant Siemens AG is celebrating its 160th anniversary and Siemens Malaysia's 35 years of contributing to the process of nation building in Malaysia.

On Dec 11, Siemens Malaysia hosted a gala dinner to commemorate its 35 years of operation in Malaysia at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre, which was launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

On the Express Rail Link (ERL) baggage project, linking KL International Airport and KL Sentral, the transportation hub of the city, that would strengthen Kuala Lumpur as a logistic and transportation hub, Wucherer says the project is having its test runs now.

“The ERL baggage handling system will be ready for public use in March 2008. Passengers will then have the choice of picking up their baggage at the airport or have it transported by the ERL to KL Sentral.

“The new system uses a high-speed tray conveyor system where bags will be placed on individual trays for better control and tracking at high speed compared to conventional belt conveyors.

“State-of-the-art IT and automation systems are in place to control and speed up baggage handling.

“Siemens' new system allows for baggage transfer at an impressive speed of 36 km per hour, compared to the present baggage system which transfers baggage at 7.2km per hour,” he says.

The additional conveyor lines will also increase the capacity of the ERL baggage handling at KLIA, which is a fast-growing major airport in the region. The baggage ERL will reduce the loss baggage incidents significantly. Malaysia is the first country in the world equipped with the ERL baggage handling system.

Rawang - Seremban line



KTM Komuter is an electrified commuter train service first introduced in 1995, catering especially to commuters in Kuala Lumpur and the surrounding suburban areas. It is a popular mode of transportation for commuters working in Kuala Lumpur, as they can travel to the city without the hassle of traffic congestion. Coaches are modern and air-conditioned. For those who drive to the stations/halts, 'Park & Ride' facility is provided at a nominal charge.

That happens at Padang Jawa <-> Bukit Badak and Angkasapuri <-> KL Sentral as well. I doubt those will be gotten rid of. I think they're what they call "neutral" sections on the power line where they transfer from one overhead cable to another.
