PROJECT: KL Ligh Rail Transit (LRT)
- Kota Damansara-Cheras (40km)

KL light rail on track for upgrade
April 9

KUALA LUMPUR, April 9 — The first upgrade of Kuala Lumpur's urban transport network is set to take off, with two firms hired to come up with designs to extend the city's two light rail systems by 16km.

The government has set the firms an August deadline, after which construction work is expected to begin.

Sources said that two months ago, Syarikat Prasarana Negara, a government agency that oversees national urban transport, awarded design contracts to HSS Integrated and Minconsult, two of Malaysia's largest civil engineering consultancies.

The management side of the project is said to have been awarded to Opus, a state-owned company in the United Engineers group.

The contracts will kick-start Malaysia's largest infrastructure project in recent years - a RM6 billion job that should help reflate the country's shrinking economy.

In addition, another RM1 billion will be needed to buy additional rolling stock from Bombardier of France.

The funds are not part of the recently announced stimulus package — they are expected to be raised through a bond offer by Syarikat Prasarana.

The project stops short of an original plan that called for a new 40km line connecting the new suburb of Kota Damansara with Cheras, one of KL's oldest and most populated suburbs.

Sources said that this was probably due to budget constraints, as the new line was estimated to cost RM11-12 billion. Each extension will, instead, cost about RM3 billion.

HSS Integrated will do the design work on extending the Star line, which runs from Sentul in downturn KL to Desa Petaling to the south.

The extension will enlarge the network almost to Puchong, west of the city, where it will meet the Putra line, the extension of which is being designed by Minconsult.

Putra runs from Ampang in KL to Petaling Jaya to the west. The extension will take it to Subang Jaya and then around to Puchong. Each extension is expected to benefit more than a million people. — Business Times Singapore

Govt ramping up construction sector
Tuesday April 14, 2009
By IZWAN IDRIS

It is to to offset negative growth in other segments

PETALING JAYA: The construction industry, which saw a dearth of jobs last year, has caught a glimpse of up-coming jobs from the stimulus spending this year.

This will be counter-cyclical in the sense that while the industry shrank last year, it may expand in a year of economic slowdown as the Government ramps up construction to offset negative growth in other sectors.

Analysts sense this impending recovery. CIMB Research last week said IJM Corp Bhd was eyeing nine major contracts worth at least RM9.4bil in total.

Eight are domestic projects. These include the job to build a hospital in Putrajaya, two packages involving the Pahang-Selangor interstate water project, the West Coast Expressway, the new low-cost carrier terminal in Sepang, work related to the Penang Second Bridge project and upcoming contracts to extend the existing two light rail transit (LRT) lines in the Klang Valley.

All these contracts are in various stages of negotiations, and tenders for some of these projects are yet to be called.

Other companies were also reported to be in the running for some of the projects being targeted by IJM. The prospective IJM job list gave some insight into the value of big domestic construction works that are in the pipeline.

Recently, WCT Bhd was reported to be in the process of finalising some RM500mil worth of jobs in Sabah.

There is also talk about a new LRT line being planned to link Kota Damansara and Cheras that is estimated to cost RM30bil.

This project, like some of the other upcoming jobs, should attract fierce bidding from the big contractors when it becomes available.

While the prospect of big projects coming in has fuelled investors’ imagination in the past weeks, an analyst at RHB Research Institute has a more sober view of the sector.

“Generally, we continue to find it difficult to be positive on the sector over the short term,’’ the firm said in report yesterday.

The key reasons for its lack of enthusiasm centred on the argument that the projects planned under the two stimulus packages were mostly small in size.

The lack of availability of funds at the right price also remained a major hurdle for most private financing initiatives to take off.

RHB Research said that as focus shifted to rolling out projects under the two stimulus packages, it “believed certain highly anticipated mega projects” under the Ninth Malaysian Plan might be put on the backburner, or postponed to the 10th Malaysia Plan.

The firm, however, acknowledged increased investors’ appetite for risk, and had assigned higher target prices for construction stocks under its coverage to reflect this.

Fund managers are aware of this mood of recovery. Hence, share prices of the big contractors which have been rising, continued to edge higher yesterday, as they shrugged off concerns that prices of counters like IJM, Gamuda Bhd and Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd (MRCB) might have gone up too fast and too soon.

A key factor in driving up investors’ buying binge in recent weeks was high expectation that the pump-priming agenda of the new administration of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak would result in increased big construction job flow in the coming months.

Analysts, however, seem to prefer to wait and see if some of these “highly anticipated” projects materialise first.

“We maintain our ‘neutral’ call (on the construction sector) as there is a lack of re-rating catalysts in sight,’’ ECM Libra Investment Research said in an update. “Key risks going forward include below-trend order book replenishment as well as implementation risks.’’

But investors are already betting that companies like IJM, Gamuda, MRCB and WCT will emerge winners.

IJM’s share price climbed six sen to RM4.70 yesterday – its highest level since mid-September last year. The stock has risen 67% since the start of the year, but is still a long way off its peak of RM8.82 reached in February 2007.

Shares in Gamuda and MRCB advanced yesterday, with both stocks now chalking up year-to-date gains of 29% and 45% respectively. WCT, whose shares were clobbered in January, has also recovered strongly.

Time to revamp KL transport system
Wednesday April 29, 2009
By BAVANI M

THE Kuala Lumpur traffic gridlock is costing the city millions of ringgit each day and congestion costs are said to be causing the loss of 2% of Malaysia’s GDP (about RM10bil) every year. Obviously, something concrete must be done to resolve this perennial problem of the city.

So, it is no surprise that the new Federal Territories Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin has declared that the city public transport system needs a review and an overhaul of priorities.

Raja Nong Chik said this in reply to a text message from StarMetro which had asked him to comment on the city public transport system.

Raja Nong Chik had accompanied Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on an inspection tour of the city recently, when they were exposed to the daily woes of the commuters travelling from one place to another in the city.

It was reported that Najib had voiced his concern over the lack of facilities and the serious congestion woes and had ordered that urgent improvements be made.

Raja Nong Chik, however, declined to talk about his plans for the improvements just yet, but promised that he would study the problem and act on the matter soon.

Having an effective and efficient public transportation system is a major factor in determining a city’s livability standard. Studies have shown that cities in countries with excellent transportation systems are the most liveable ones of the world.

At the International Conference on World Class Sustainable Cities 2009 (WCSC’09) round-table discussion last month, the transportation issue was the hot topic where six international speakers and some local experts debated and explored the strategies and best practices that would help turn Kuala Lumpur into a world-class sustainable city.

Most believed that the government should direct more attention to the existing public transport services as reducing traffic congestion in the city would contribute to improving the economic well-being of the nation and people.

They also agreed that the key area needing improvement is transportation, and if the transportation woes are resolved, other areas will follow through.

It was also pointed out that there are many agencies involved in the management of public transportation in the city and that there is a need for one autonomous centralised authority to operate the system like what Singapore, Vancouver and Berlin are having.

The bottom line is that Kuala Lumpur needs to get a grip on its transport problem now, and only then would its residents enjoy a better quality of life.

To say that the government is not doing anything is not true as there are plans to construct a new 42km Kota Damansara-Cheras LRT line and to extend the Kelana Jaya and Ampang LRT lines. There are also plans to buy more train coaches and stage buses.

But many transport advocates see the whole scenario as overlooking the big picture.

Take the buses, for instance. According to the Association for the Improvement of Mass-Transit in Klang Valley (Transit), the KL bus service is geared towards the peak hours and during the day you can see buses lined up and waiting at the old city areas of KL.

“Areas of congestion in old KL can be found at the bus stop areas in Lebuh Ampang (Medan Tunku), Jalan Tun H.S. Lee and the Kota Raya area where the Metrobuses are treating the area like their parking garage,” Transit adviser Moaz Yusof Ahmad said.

“There is also the Pasar Seni LRT station, the site of the Pasarama Kota, the so-called Klang Bus Stand and the unofficial Seremban bus stand. which block the traffic along the main road,” Moaz said.

These buses wait in the areas for passengers, blocking traffic and polluting the surrounding area with their burning diesel fuel.

According to Moaz, the solution lies in enforcement to keep buses moving, and building a new staging area for urban buses.

He said the DBKL should station officers in the area to monitor the buses, ensuring that each bus should have a maximum 10-minute waiting time before it had to get on the road, whether its passenger load was full or not.

In the long term, a new staging area will have to be built in KL for the urban buses. The best solution is to take advantage of the Puduraya and Plaza Rakyat areas and ensure that there is a hub and staging area for urban buses built there.

All improvement to public transport must consider the needs of the elderly, the young, and the disabled and must be designed to make it easier for people to use public transport. Improved access to public transport means that service can be faster, congestion can be reduced, and people will find it more convenient.
