narrow gauge definition

Guys, just to quote from wikipedia

"A narrow gauge railway (or narrow gauge railroad) is a railway that has a track gauge narrower than the 1,435 mm (4 ft 8+1⁄2 in) of standard gauge railways. Most existing narrow gauge railways have gauges of 3 ft 6 in (1,067 mm) or less." and if you look it up at, meter gauge is classified under narrow gauge and those more than the standard gauge of 1,435 mm is classified as broad gauge.

FYI

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

One of those funny situations.

Commuters want exact locations of new stations
By BAVANI M Monday October 12, 2009



Future option: There is a lot of land waiting to be developed at
Putra Heights, where both the extensions are expected to meet.


IT HAS been almost a month since Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd revealed its preferred alignments for the proposed extension to the Kelana Jaya and Ampang LRT lines.

Since then, there have been numerous calls by residents and stakeholders requesting that the exact locations of the stations be identified.

Having a clear idea of where these stations are located would help people provide feedback, comments and suggestions to the proposed lines as well as prevent any confusion in future that might hamper the project.

Several locations have been proposed and it is believed that the most of the stations will be within a 500m radius of these locations with some exceptions.

The Kelana Jaya line starts from the Kelana Jaya station, passing through Subang Jaya and USJ, before ending at Putra Heights, covering 17km, with 13 new stations.

There are two stations in Petaling Jaya, while Subang Jaya has seven stations located along Jalan Jengka and Persiaran Kewajipan and three stations in Putra Heights.

The line will have five stations with multi-storey park-and-ride facilities.

The Ampang line, which spans 17.7km, starts at the Sri Petaling station and passes through the Kinrara and Puchong industrial zones before ending at Putra Heights.

It has 13 stations, with six multi-storey carpark and park-and-ride facilities, including Putra Heights. Two stations are located in Kuala Lumpur, while 10 stations are in Puchong.

The 35km of lines, which are estimated to cost about RM7bil, will be elevated and are expected to be ready by 2012.

For those wanting to make comments and objections, note that the display hours are from Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm. It is closed on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.

Views should be in writing and submitted to the Department of Railways director-general’s office before Dec 14.

For details call 03-2278 1222 or visit www.dor.gov.my.

Rail Network In Klang Valley To Be Expanded
October 15, 2009 17:32 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 15 (Bernama) -- More trains will be added in the Klang Valley to meet the government's goal to raise the use of public transport from 16 per cent now to 25 per cent by 2012, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said Thursday.

The target for Penang and Johor Baharu would be set later, he said in his speech read out by his ministry's Deputy Secretary-General (Planning) Datuk Long See Wool at the national summit on ubran public transport.

"Our immediate focus is to enhance the capacity, service levels, coverage, and connectivity for all modes of public transport, with particular emphasis on elevating the role of rail as the backbone of urban public transport," he said.

Ong said that with only 19km of track per million population, rail coverage in the Klang Valley was low compared with other major cities of the world and the existing three railway systems and stage buses which handled 260,000 passenger trips in the morning rush hour were overcrowded.

"For our commuters living along the Ipoh-Rawang line, four new electric trains sets (ETS) will be introduced between December this year and March next year."

He said RM200 million had been allocated to purchase 10 sets of electric multiple units (EMU) for KTM Berhad due to increasing passenger load through the Klang Valley.

For the congested Kelana Jaya LRT line, the government planned to add 10 new trains with four cars by end of this year.

"We will continue to put into service additional four-car sets in batches until all 35 are operational by 2012. By then, our current capacity of 25 trains with 70 cars will grow to 70 trains with 210 cars," he said.

By 2012, the LRT line from Kelana Jaya would be extended to Putra Heights via Subang Jaya and the Ampang-Sri Petaling serice would be extended to Puchong and also end in Putra Heights.

A new LRT line from Kota Damansara to Cheras covering 42.8 km was being studied.

"The LRT line extensions and new line will increase our rail coverage in the Klang Valley to 32km per million population," Ong added.

He said the delivery taskforce on public transport would be tasked to make further improvements to the Klang Valley public transport system and would immediately focus on revamping bus services, more inter-modal hubs, rail capacity, feeder network and integrated ticketing.

Outside the Klang Valley, the electrified double tracking project from Ipoh to Padang Besar in the north, and Seremban to Gemas in the South, were being completed.

Ong said that under the national key result area (N-KRA), the project would be extended from Gemas to Johor Baharu very soon.

A Land Public Transport Commission would be set up to ensure integrated policy, planning and implementation would be carried out in a more cohesive manner, he added.

AmResearch sees RM62 bil projects to be rolled out
By Joseph Chin of theedgeproperty.com Monday, 16 November 2009 19:02
http://www.theedgeproperty.com/news-...olled-out.html

KUALA LUMPUR: AmResearch is maintaining its “overweight” call on the construction sector, where order book visibility should improve in the coming months as it expects up to RM62 billion worth of select cornerstone projects to be rolled-out over the next six to 12 months.

It said on Nov 16 its top picks for the construction sector are WCT, IJM and Gamuda. It also prefered steel to cement stocks for exposure to the building materials theme -- another key beneficiary of a re-acceleration of infrastructure spending. It continued to like steel maker Ann Joo Resources Bhd.

The pre-qualification tenders for the proposed Klang Valley Light Rail Transit (LRT) extension works were unveiled on Nov 3. Tenders are for facilities packages, which are the main civil and infrastructure works, and other sub-packages.

Submission for pre-qualification bids will be opened until Dec 16 although tenders for the systems and rolling stock portion -- which includes mechanical & electrical (M&E) -- have yet to be called for.

The Edge reported the scope of works for the facilities package include guideway structures, actual stations and the park & ride buildings. It added that the main civil works programme could be broken down into six main packages. This includes the actual bricks-and-mortar structure for the tracks as well as LRT stations.

AmResearch said earlier reports stated the Klang Valley LRT extension works were expected to cost an initial RM7 billion. The project entailed the construction of additional tracks linking both the Kelana Jaya (17km) as well as the Ampang (17.7km) lines to Putra Heights along the southern tip of Klang Valley.

"Based on our channel checks, most big construction outfits in Malaysia have submitted bids for the civil works part of this massive project. But we our unclear as to how the work packages would be carved out," it said.

AmResearch said going by operating track record, it believed both IJM Corp Bhd and Gamuda Bhd are frontrunners for the LRT jobs. However, it did not discount possibility of a consortium being formed to facilitate entry of other local players at subcontractor level, which may include WCT Bhd and Loh & Loh Bhd.

As for the M&E portion, it said that the scope for local participation appears limited due to the high-level of technical expertise required to build and commission LRT systems.

Public display period for LRT lines proposal coming to a close
20 Nov 2009 By BAVANI M

THE three-month public display period for the proposed Kelana Jaya and Ampang LRT lines is coming to an end, and Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad (Prasarana) wants the public to come forward with their views.

Its group communications general manager, Ebi Azly Abdullah, said the public response had been positive so far, but added that whatever feedback must be official.

“We value their constructive feedback, good or bad. But, it must be made through the proper channels,’’ he said, adding that they do not accept comments which do not use the official form given.

“Most of the feedback we received are from Selangor, with the bulk of queries concerning the station’s locations. Most want to know why the lines are not by-passing areas like Cheras, Shah Alam and Klang,’’ he said.

The plans are being displayed at Department of Railways (DOR), Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ), Subang Jaya Council (MBSJ) and Shah Alam City Council (MBSA).

Ebi said at each location, maps of the alignment for both lines as well as features for the LRT system, including facilities for the disabled were displayed.

“The plan and profile of the alignment also shows the exact locations of the stations, the site plans, land acquisition details which shows the list of landowners, the plan of the station, details of the road alignment as well as a visitors’ log book for the public to write in their comments,’’ he said.

A website dedicated to the LRT extension line which can be linked from the DOR website, has also been set up for feedback. The website contains information on the alignment and features of the LRT system. Brochures are also being distributed to the public.

“The public can put in their feedback via the website and there is no limitation as to how much they want to say,’’ he said, adding that once the deadline is up, all feedback and suggestions will be compiled and submitted for consideration.

According to Ebi, Prasarana has not much say during the public display period as they are guided by the DOR.

“It is only a proposal, so put in your suggestions and after that a task force and a communication team will be set up to deal with all public feedback and grouses one by one,’’ he said.

SPNB evaluating 136 contractors for RM7bil LRT extension
Published: Tuesday November 24, 2009 MYT 3:17:00 PM

KUALA LUMPUR: Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd (SPNB) is evaluating 136 contractors, under a pre-qualification exercise, for the proposed extension of the Kelana Jaya and Ampang Light Rail Transit (LRT) lines which are estimated to cost RM7 billion.

"We have given them a month to fulfill the requirements. We have to pre-qualify them to determine if they can undertake the job," said its Group managing director Datuk Idrose Mohamed.

He said it was up to the contractors concerned to bid for the project via joint-ventures or on their own.

"Following the pre-qualification exercise, we will call for the actual tenders by early next year," he told reporters after the launch of the International Association of Public Transport (UITP) Asia Pacific Seminar by Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah, here, on Tuesday.

The three-day seminar on public transportation began on Monday and is organised by Rangkaian Pengangkutan Integrasi Deras Sdn Bhd in association with the UITP.

"There are a lots of processes involved in the extension of the LRT lines. We have to do a final design and submit for approval to the local authorities.

"Once everything is completed, we will start the actual construction which is targeted for early next year," he said.

He also disclosed that the project will be completed in three years.

Meanwhile, Idrose said Prasarana will be introducing a longer, four-car train for the Kelana Jaya LRT line, a key metro system in Kuala Lumpur.

He said the first batch of the four-car train which is currently undergoing testing, will be operational by the year end.

He said a total of 35 trains will be delivered in one and a half years, with four being delivered quarterly. - Bernama

Building confidence in public transport
Saturday November 28, 2009 By SHARIDAN M.ALI

FOR most of Klang Valley residents, the choice between driving in traffic jams and commuting in sardine-packed light rail transit (LRT) or buses during peak hours makes little difference.

The Government has set what seems to be an ambitious target of increasing public transport usage to 25% by 2012 from the current 16%. To do that, there ought to be a concerted support from related Government agencies, private bus operators, taxi companies as well as the LRT and the largest public bus operator, Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd.

With emphasis on that and as one of the lead drivers to achieve the target, Prasarana hopes to instil confidence of using public transport by providing more comfortable, reliable and efficient services.

Currently, Prasarana has the biggest ridership; it transports a daily average of 400,000 people on its buses, 300,000 people on its two LRT services and 100,000 people on the monorail.

'No receipt, no permit' warning to taxi drivers

KOTA TINGGI: Starting next year, taxi drivers who fail to issue receipts to their passengers will face stern action by the Commercial Vehicle Licensing Board.

CVLB chairman Datuk Halimah Mohamed Sadique said the action would include withdrawing their permits.

There are some 31,000 taxi drivers in the country.

“We want all taxi drivers to follow the law as there have been so many complaints from the public about taxi drivers charging fares not according to the stipulated rates, but as they please,” she told reporters after handing over korban meat to recipients in the Tenggara parliamentary constituency at the Sungai Sibol Felda scheme here yesterday.

She said the move was to improve public transport services, particularly taxi service.

“Taxi drivers often had a negative image, especially among foreign tourists,” she added.

Halimah said the Government had increased the taxi fare in August, so the claim that the fare was still low was no longer an excuse.

Passengers now pay RM3 instead of RM2 for the first kilometre and an additional 50% for rides between midnight and 6am.

An extra RM2 is charged to call for a taxi service.

To date, 90% of the taxi drivers nationwide have calibrated their meters according to the new fare and installed a printer to issue receipts.

The CVLB has set Dec 31 as the deadline to comply with the new regulation, failing which the taxi drivers will not be allowed to operate.

However, 1,260 taxi drivers in Penang have been given until June 30 next year to calibrate their meters and to install the fare printer as the gadget can cost as much as RM350. — Bernama

KLIA Transit is a rail service linking Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, and the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) operated by Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERL).

KLIA Ekspres, Amadues Sign Partnership Deal
December 01, 2009 21:37 PM
RELATED LINK: http://www.amadeus.com/

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 1 (Bernama) -- Travel and tourism firm, Amadues, has signed a partnership deal with KLIA Ekspres to allow travel agencies to book the train service via its distribution solution.

KLIA Ekspres, a train service that connects the Kuala Lumpur International Airport with the city centre, would now be available to more than 102,000 travel agents in 219 markets through Amadeus Airport Express.

In a statement, Amadues Asia Pacific president, David Brett, said the rail was an increasingly common mode of transportation in many countries in the region.

"High-speed rail services are also growing rapidly as a convenient option for business travel," he said.

He said offering travellers the ability to book rail transport in addition to their airline tickets would help rail providers increase passenger bookings and help travel agencies to add value.

The addition of KLIA Ekspres further expands Amadeus's service which already features Heathrow Express (London), Arlanda Express (Stockholm) and Friendly Airport Limousine service at Narita Airport (Tokyo).

Thursday December 3, 2009

PETALING JAYA: Tickets for the KLIA Ekspres, the fast train service between KL International Airport in Sepang and KL Sentral in Kuala Lumpur, can now be bought by travellers worldwide.

Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd, the operator service, has joined the Amadeus ticketing system which is better known for booking airline tickets. Amadeus, in a statement, said KLIA Ekspres tickets had been on sale worldwide since last Tuesday.

It said train tickets, which can be purchased together with plane bookings, would be e-mailed to the traveller or agency in a printable PDF format.
