Personally I think no need to increase wagons of KL monorail just right now when new four-car light rail transit trains instead of currently two-car for the Kelana Jaya LRT line are debut!

New Four-Car Trains from Bombadier

New four-car LRT trains in Klang Valley by next year
Friday June 13, 2008, TheStar

PETALING JAYA: The new four-car light rail transit trains for the Kelana Jaya LRT line in the Klang Valley are expected to start operations by the end of next year.

The trains are capable of carrying more than twice the load of the current two-car trains.

In 2006, Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd signed the RM1.2bil deal with the Bombardier-Hartasuma consortium for 22 trains, with an option for a further purchase of 13 trains.

The trains are being manufactured by Canadian company Bombardier and will be assembled by Hartasuma Sdn Bhd in Malaysia.

According to details made available at the Rail Solutions Asia exhibition, each train will have 32 seats and can comfortably carry 740 passengers, compared with the present load of 370 people per train.

Under “crush load” situations, the trains can carry 944 passengers. The current trains can only handle 472 passengers.

The new trains, which will be operated by RapidKL, will enable the capacity of the Kelana Jaya line to be increased by another 191,000 passengers daily.
BOMBARDIER MEXICO BUILDS WAGONS FOR KUALA LUMPUR'S LIGHT RAIL TRANSIT (LRT)
Monday, March 16, 2009

Bombardier Mexico designs and builds new wagons for the Light Rail Transit system of Kuala Lumpur. With the support of PROMEXICO, the Ambassador of Mexico Jorge Alberto Lozoya recently visited in Port Klang the factory of Malaysian corporation Ara Rails, where assembling of the prototype wagons fabricated in Ciudad Sahagun, Mexico, is taking place.



Ambassador Lozoya was received by Dr. Abdul Rahman Abdul Halim, Executive Director of Hartasuma Sdn Bhd and by Mr. C. Sreejith, Chief Executive Officer of Ara Rails Technology Sdn Bhd who explained that Bombardier Mexico will fabricate 142 wagons during the next two years, especially designed in Mexico according to the needs of Malaysian customers.



During his visit the diplomat was greeted by the six Mexican technicians that will remain in Malaysia during several months in order to familiarize local workers with the improvements generated by the new technology.

It's weird, they extend the trains. I havent seen that much crowd on the metro lines (just got back from KL). They should first make all the different systems to one integrated. (of course on the map u can read: its integrated rapid transit system map, but in fact there are few totally segregated systems - Star, Putra, monorail and comuter.) It's not passanger-friendly when changing lines, u have to get out of one system, cross the street and enter another one (and paying of course another time for ur ride). It takes time, makes it uncomfortable and more expensive. This situation u can observe at the interchange stn. Masjid Jamek - with the monorail it's even worse, which makes the KL to one of the stupidest metro systems ive ever travelled.
And that's a shame. It could serve the city better if it were really integrated system.

The Kelana Jaya Line is in desperate need of the extended trains. The line is said to be at least 40% over capacity. Maybe not so at non-peak hours, but during peak hours it can get really crazy even though trains have run at 90 second frequencies. When I was working in KL 2 years ago, at the 5th station from the terminus (Taman Jaya), I couldn't get onto a train even though 4 trains had passed by - ended up taking a train in the opposite direction and then bouncing back just to get on.

I hope they will! Coz now it's very 'passangers-unfriendly'.
The first step has been done: printing the map with the word 'integrated'

Of course not. Singapore is run vastly different from our neighbours up north. We shouldn't impose our standards on them and not every system is fool-proof even.

That said, the Masjid Jamek station was supposed to have undergone a makeover. Am not sure how it makes transfers easier, but it was in the papers several times. Is the transfer plaza open yet?

Well Singapore's public transport system is probably the nicest and simplest to use in the world... Almost nowhere can match it.

Pleasant surprise for 100 millionth passenger
2009/07/21
Nuradzimmah Daim



congratulations to Norzahila Muzahid.

KUALA LUMPUR: Using public transport is cheaper than driving to work and for quantity surveyor Norzahila Muzahid, taking the monorail also turned out to be a rewarding experience.

Yesterday, she had a pleasant surprise while on her way back home from Jalan Raja Chulan when she was announced as the 100 millionth passenger by KL Monorail Sdn Bhd staff.

For that, Norzahila received a 40-inch Sony Bravia plasma television and a travel pass worth RM150.

“I went to work this morning but had to go back home after getting an MC (medical certificate). as I’m not feeling well. I didn’t think that it would also be my lucky day.

“I’m staying in Bandar Baru Sentul and I take the LRT to the Titiwangsa station. From there, I take the monorail to my office in Jalan Raja Chulan. If I was rushing to work, I wouldn’t have stopped even if the monorail staff had told me that I was the 100th million passenger,” she said with a grin.

KL StarRail Sdn Bhd chief operating officer Khairani Mohamed said the recognition was the company’s way of showing its appreciation to its customers.

“Our staff was on standby from 9.30am to 10.30am to look for the 100 millionth passenger.” he said.

Meanwhile, service engineer K. Manivannan and visually-impaired James Mong were announced as the 1,000,001 and 999,999 passenger, respectively.

Manivannan received a 32-inch plasma TV and a travel pass worth RM100 while Mong went home with a hi-fi set and a travel pass worth RM50.

Wanch, "narrow gauge" is 1067 mm, 1000 mm is "meter gauge"

and KTM is 1000 mm which means KTM operates meter gauge.

Again, meter gauge is narrow but it is not "narrow gauge"

One of those funny situations.

SJ folk say yes to LRT
Tuesday July 28, 2009
By OH ING YEEN

WHILE Subang Jaya residents welcome the proposal for the LRT extension to their township, they unanimously agreed that it should not be built through residential areas.

More than 200 residents and students studying in Subang Jaya attended the meeting at the 3K complex multipurpose hall to air their views on the proposed LRT service on Saturday.

A resident, who introduced himself as Chong, said: “While we welcome the LRT, make sure it won’t fly over my house,” as the residents applauded upon hearing his opinion.

The meeting was initiated by Kelana Jaya MCA and co-organised by the Subang Jaya Residents Association (RA), USJ RA, Bandar Sunway RA, Subang Jaya Senior Citizens Club, Subang Jaya Consumers Association, Subang Jaya Coffee, Bar and Restaurant Association, and the Song Ling Choir Association. Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat and Kelana Jaya MCA chairman Ong Chong Swen attended the meeting.

Prasarana group managing director Datuk Idrose Mohamed gave a presentation on the proposed route and answered questions from the residents.

The proposed 17km route will continue from the Kelana Jaya line and run through the Subang Jaya KTM station, Kesas Highway, Jalan Jengka, Persiaran Kewajipan, Summit USJ, Taipan USJ, up to Putra Heights.

However, the press were not allowed to obtain copies of the proposed route nor take photos of it as it was not the finalised version.

“The basis of the route is high travel demand and minimal social impact. We try to minimise land acquisition,” said Idrose.

“The railway scheme centre route plan and details of land acquisition will be on public display for three months to provide an opportunity for feedback and any comments will be taken into consideration,” he said.

He added that there would be park-and-ride facilities at three of the stations, including at the Subang Jaya KTM station.

“The multi-level parking facility can cater up to 1,000 to 1,500 cars,” he said.

Upon hearing the proposed routes, some residents expressed their concerns about the congestion that would be caused by the construction, illegal parking and feeder buses.

“The construction at the roundabout in Jalan Kewajipan caused congestions. We don’t want any more construction or development there,” a resident said.

To that, Idrose said the LRT serves to take cars off the road and it will cater to 1.4 million people, hence there will be less congestion in the Jalan Kewajipan and Jalan Jengka.

USJ RA member Melvin Lee said if the LRT station were to be integrated with the KTM station, it will cause more congestion in that area.

He added that feeder buses should be provided to ferry people to the stations as it would defeat the idea of reducing congestion if people had to drive to the LRT stations.

Residents and students studying in Bandar Sunway expressed their wish for the LRT line to be extended to their area, too.

Elizabeth Lee, who spoke on behalf of Sunway and Monash University students, said: “We hope that the LRT line can be extended to Sunway as the students are constantly fleeced by taxi drivers,” she said.

Mass Transit Klang Valley (Transit) adviser Moaz Yusuf Ahmad finds that the presentation was good but felt that it should have taken place many years ago.

“The coordination between the agencies in Selangor should be improved as there is an inconsistency between the Selangor Structure Plan, Subang Jaya Local Draft Plan, and the structure plan by Prasarana,” he said.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said he had received many e-mails from Subang Jaya residents, hence the town hall meeting was the best way for the people to voice out their opinion.

“The views expressed by residents have been taken into consideration,” said Ong.

“Gone are the days of ‘Government knows best’. We are here to solicit the residents’ views,” he said in his speech.

Kelana Jaya MCA chairman Ong Chong Swen, in her speech said: “The LRT extension is much awaited. Many will benefit as it will ease traffic and reduce transportation problems but some are also worried that it may affect their livelihood and business.

“Although it is just a proposed route, at least we can have a view on how the route will look like,” she said.

All Systems Go For Synergised Public Transport System - Tee Keat
July 28, 2009 19:35 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, July 28 (Bernama) -- The government is forging ahead with plans to create a synergised public transport service as part of an ambitious bid to achieve a 70:30 ratio of private to public vehicles by next year, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said.

In an interview with the Oxford Business Group (OBG), a global publishing, research and consultancy firm, he said the aim was to increase capacity and connectivity within the public transport sector, with particular emphasis on elevating the railway presence in the country.

Ong said that at the core of the plans were the intercity and commuter services of the main rail operator, Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB), with the construction of major electrified double-track projects as a priority.

He explained that to ensure that KTMB could handle the ever-increasing number of passengers passing through the Klang Valley, the government had allocated RM200 million to procure 10 sets of electric multiple units.

"A significant number of infrastructure projects are simultaneously making their way off the drawing board, which will play a key part in creating the integrated public transport service.

"Kuala Lumpur City Hall, RapidKL, and the National Infrastructure Company are building infrastructure such as aerobridges, covered walkways, escalators, lifts and access roads to major light rail stations, monorails, express rail links and KTMB commuter lines," he said.

While the government is making a significant investment in rail transport, Ong said, the aviation and maritime sectors were also benefiting from numerous projects which had been signed off under the Ninth Malaysia Plan (9MP).

He said the ministry was overseeing a total of 269 projects across the sectors amounting to around RM15.3 billion, adding that most of the projects should be completed by next year.

"A few projects will be carried over to the 10th Malaysia Plan, such as the double-tracking project from Ipoh to Padang Besar and from Seremban to Gemas, which are expected to be completed in 2013 and 2012, respectively," he added.

Ong said he expected a far-reaching national transport policy to be put together as part of the overhaul earmarked for the public transport system.

The policy would be formulated by the National Public Transportation Commission (NPTC), which was set up to regulate land-based public transport, he said.

Its scope would extend from aspects of resource planning to regulating competition within sectors and various areas of enforcement such as road worthiness and public safety, he added.

ERLSB To Save RM800,000 With Energy Saving Campaign
August 19, 2009 21:49 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 19 (Bernama) -- Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERLSB), owner and operator of the high-speed air-rail services KLIA Express and KLIA Transit, hopes to save RM800,000 from its newly launched Go Green, Go Lo-Co energy saving campaign by end of 2010.

Speaking to reporters here Wednesday, chief executive officer Noormah Mohd Noor said the Go Green Go Lo-Co was an outreach campaign that aimed to show Malaysians how they can lead a greener lifestyle with simple and pragmatic solutions.

She said as of 2008, the company's energy saving measures had resulted in an average savings of RM487,000 per annum.

Noormah added that as part of the company's Go Green, Go Lo-Co campaign, ERLSB would also stepping its green commitment by reducing, re-using and recycling products and materials used within its operations.

"By having this kind of campaign, we also hope to boost our market share from 17 percent currently," she said.

Officiating the event was the Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water, Datuk Peter Chin Fah Kui.

As an expansion of the campaign, ERLSB has included a new train-washing plant which will use 80 percent less chemicals, 90 percent less water and 70 percent less electricity, to result in a more environmentally friendly maintenance of its fleet of 12 high speed trains.

The plant will be built next month and it is expected to be completed in three weeks time, said ERL Maintenance Support Sdn Bhd's chief executive officer, Thomas Baake.

The train-washing plant will be operated by end of October, he said.
