LRT plan gets the nod as residents feel it will ease traffic
By THO XIN YI Thursday December 17, 2009



A FEW residents associations and organisations in Subang Jaya and USJ have given the thumbs up to the LRT extension plan.

They feel that the LRT would be a convenient alternative for residents who have had enough of traffic congestion and poor bus services in the townships.

Subang Jaya Senior Citizens Club president Yeong Teik Boon believed that the extension would shorten the travelling time between Subang Jaya and the city centre.

“Buses here are not punctual and the Komuter station is not easily accessible by all,” he said.

Jamaludin Ibrahim of the USJ 5 residents association welcomed the LRT extension as it would help the people save money and time, while Subang Jaya Consumers’ Association secretary Gan Meng Foo believed that it would alleviate traffic congestion.

However, they hoped that the feeder bus services would be well-planned.

Persatuan Poh Toh Subang Jaya chairman Koay Teng Koon added that the car park facilities must be sufficient to encourage car owners to use the LRT to get to their destinations.

The Subang Jaya Coffee Merchants, Bars and Restaurants Association, meanwhile, urged the authorities to look into the environmental and health aspects when implementing the extension.

Kelana Jaya MCA chairman Ong Chong Swen, who is also the USJ 5 residents association deputy president, is hoping that the LRT extension would change the people’s travelling habits.

“They can take the trains to work and use their own cars for leisure on the weekends,” she said.

Ong added that she was informed by Prasarana that it had received 92% positive feedback on the project.

JKP Zone 4 deputy chairman Shafiee Shariff Abdullah also hoped that construction work would commence as soon as possible.

Subang Jaya resident M. Vivekananda, on the other hand, was concerned about the efficiency of the LRT in solving the traffic problem in the Klang Valley.

“Using the proposed LRT extensions can result in having to travel in a rather circuitous route.

“Additionally, if the existing LRT lines have not solved the transport problem in Kuala Lumpur, how can they be expected to solve the transportation problems in the other areas such as Subang Jaya and USJ?” he asked.

He suggested the authorities look into transport woes in a holistic manner to overhaul the traffic management system.

“By extending the LRT, Prasarana cannot bring about a magical transformation to end the transportation woes. A colossal amount of taxpayers money is involved in this project.

“The authorities need to make a judicious decision in the name of progress and sustainable development,” he said.

Another Subang Jaya resident G. H. Goh suggested that an independent loop be formed along the Damansara-Puchong Expressway for travellers heading to Petaling Jaya to save the time of LRT users who are heading to Kuala Lumpur.

Route expansion in progress
A 7.2 km, four-station extension from the Sentul station to Batu Caves has been approved. The project - which will cost RM515 million - will include electrification, double-tracking and refitting the existing old track, signalling, communications, as well as construction of new stations at Sentul, Batu Cantonment, Batu Village, Taman Wahyu and Batu Caves. Site possession was given to contractor YTL Corporation Berhad on November 17, 2006, and the project is to be completed by April 2010. The Sentul station is part of the Sentul Raya masterplan development under YTL.

KL Monorail
1 Line
- KL Sentral - Titiwangsa (11 stations over 8.6 km)



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.

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).

A shuttle bus service with a 15-minute frequency will be provided between Kuala Lumpur and Sentul in the meantime, the statement said.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused to commuters using this route during this time.

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

KL turns to LRT to get on right track
The Malaysian Insider

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 18 — Despite the convenience brought on by trains that may someday run near his Shah Alam home, Ikmal Hisham is not happy.

Construction of a 34.7km extension to the existing 56km Light Rail Transit (LRT) lines is set to begin early next year, and be completed by 2013.

Estimated to cost up to RM7 billion, the extension to the LRT lines will serve thousands of commuters with 26 new stations in the capital and Selangor.

But Ikmal said the trains will run too close to houses and schools.

“There will be noise pollution during construction and when the trains start operating,” he told The Straits Times.

The lines will also run close to high-voltage cables, he said.

“It is very dangerous,” he added. “Accidents can happen. The lives of the residents at home and the children in the schools will be jeopardised.”

He claimed the rail line will run as close as 50m to homes in some spots in Shah Alam.

About 1,155 residents have signed a petition suggesting an alternative route.

Their route would serve more housing communities and commercial centres, they said, but is still a safe distance from houses.

Syarikat Prasarana Negara, a unit of the Ministry of Finance that oversees public infrastructure projects, said the LRT is the best mode of transport to beat road congestion.

Feedback from the public is being evaluated by the Department of Railways before the project kicks off, Ebi Azly Abdullah, Prasarana's group communications general manager, told The Straits Times.

The dispute over the rail's route forms part of a larger debate over the efficient movement of hundreds of thousands of people in the fast-growing Klang Valley that surrounds KL.

Public transportation has always been a sore point in the Klang Valley, as it is seen as unreliable and poorly connected. Some areas do not have LRT stations, and buses are infrequent.

Unlike Ikmal, commuter Ida Mariam Abdul Rahim does not mind trains running near her home.

Ida, a legal counsel, takes a 20-minute LRT ride to work from Petaling Jaya to the KL city centre every day. When fuel prices shot up in June last year, many joined her by ditching their cars to use public transport.

Now, the two-coach trains that she uses daily are bursting at the seams.

“It is very convenient for me because the LRT is just a 10-minute walk from my house and from my office,” she said.

She added that the sound of the LRT trains, which run behind her house, does not bother her.

“It is not noisy, and you get used to it,” she said. “And with the rising prices of petrol and other goods, I prefer the station to be near my house.”

The government said yesterday that it aimed to boost the number of daily users of public transport in the Klang Valley from 240,000 to 600,000 by the end of 2012, by addressing problems commonly faced by commuters, including LRT overcrowding.

To increase capacity, the government is set to double the number of train coaches to four for one of the two LRT lines at the end of this month.

Political analyst James Chin of the Monash University Malaysia Campus said the government has no choice but to build the extension. “Residents who oppose the line will change their minds once the line is completed. It will increase the value of their homes,” he said.

Traffic in parts of the Klang Valley has reached a critical stage, he added.

“You can only build so many flyovers and new roads,” he said. “The future for all big cities like KL is an efficient inner-city train line.” — Straits Times

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.

Work starts on LRT station
By ROZAID A. RAHMAN Sunday December 20, 2009



Positive response: The proposed site of the LRT station that was recently
cleared of undergrowth yesterday. Construction of the extended lines is
scheduled to begin in March next year.


PETALING JAYA: Land clearing work for the main Putra Heights LRT station has started.

A check at the proposed site of the station, which will act as an interchange for commuters using the Kelana Jaya and Ampang lines, showed that the area has been cleared of undergrowth.

Construction of the extended LRT lines is scheduled to begin in March next year.

At least 90% of the public have responded positively towards the proposal since it was first announced three months ago.

The proposed extension plan was displayed for a three-month public viewing at the Department of Railways, the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), Subang Jaya Municipal Council, Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) and Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ).

The deadline for the public to give feedback on the 34km extension ended on Dec 14.

Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad (SPNB) communications general manager Ebi Azly Abdullah said some resident associations wanted some of the new routes and stations to be reviewed, but none objected to the extension.

“Overall, the public agreed that we should build this extended line. Some resident associations from Taman Bunga Negara, Subang Alam, Section 2 and 3 of Putra Heights objected, but not against the extension as a whole. They want the route and location of stations at some parts to be reviewed,” he told The Star.

The Kelana Jaya-Putra Heights extension, estimated to cost about RM6bil to RM7bil, will have 13 stations, starting with Kelana Jaya/Subang Valley, Subang, Subang Jaya, USJ, and Alam Megah before ending at Putra Heights.

The Sri Petaling-Putra Heights line, also with 13 stations, is estimated to cost RM8bil and cuts across Puchong and Kinrara.

Ebi said construction would begin early next year and expected to complete by the end of 2012.

“However, this would depend on the changes that need to be made to some routes based on the feedback and suggestions received from local authorities,” he said.

KL to have dedicated bus lanes from 2011
18 Dec 2009

FOR the first time ever, the Government will introduce dedicated bus lanes which are separated from normal roads by barriers as part of the move to encourage the use of public transport.

Transport Ministry special adviser for transport Mohamad Nur Kamal said Kuala Lumpur’s bus rapid transit Corridor One would be introduced in 2011.

This would be followed by Corridor Two and Corridor Three the following year.

Unlike earlier dedicated bus lanes introduced by Kuala Lumpur City Hall, the lanes are different as they will be separated from normal roads and only buses will have access to them.

Mohamad Nur, who is the team leader for the Urban Public Transport Laboratory, said four bus expressway transit routes would be built next year.

These would allow buses to travel along under-utilised highways to Kuala Lumpur city centre with limited stops along the way.

For rail services, Mohamad Nur said there would be 26 new four-car light rail transit train sets for the Kelana Jaya line next year. An additional 35 would be available in 2011.

“The LRT extension to Putra Heights in Subang Jaya will also be completed and there will be 14 new trains for the Ampang LRT line,” he said, adding that the capacity for monorail service will be doubled.

By 2011, he said 15 refurbished electric multiple units would be available for KTM Komuter.

“Currently, there are 23 to 25 running train sets for KTM Komuter and the figure is expected to increase to 80 sets by 2012. We hope to reduce the Komuter headways to 7.5 minutes in 2012.”

Next year, Mohamad Nur said there would also be discounted fare rates by all operators for commuters who used Touch ’n Go cards.

He said drivers with outstanding summonses would be refused road tax renewals next year to reduce the number of vehicles on the road.

Ong: Transit corridors can handle 50,000 passengers during peak hours
Saturday December 19, 2009

KUALA LUMPUR: The 12 transit corridors where special bus lanes will be built will be able to handle between 35,000 and 50,000 passengers during peak hours daily, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said.

“This is between 6% and 9% of the total public transport ridership by 2012,” he said.

The dedicated right-of-way for buses will run from the suburbs in the Klang Valley to Kuala Lumpur city centre following 12 corridors.

He said this in an interview with Bernama on the Government Transformation Programme. Ong is in charge of the National Key Result Areas on improving urban public transport.

Besides dedicated right-of-ways, Ong said a Bus Expressway Transit service would be established along four corridors in the Klang Valley by the first quarter of next year.

The four corridors corresponded with four under-utilised highways in the Klang Valley where commuters will enjoy a 55% reduction in the average point-to-point journey times, he said.

“The size of the existing bus fleet will also be increased by 850 buses, close to doubling the number of buses operated by RapidKL today. This will improve services on current routes and provide services to 53 new routes in currently unserved areas.”

Ong said to draw people to public transport, the key initiatives would include introducing an integrated ticketing platform and fare structure under the “1Ticket, 1Seamless Journey” concept across all 16 operators in the Klang Valley.

“On top of that, 6,800 new parking spaces across 14 key rail stations outside the urban core areas would be added, besides enhancing feeder services into rail stations as well as upgrading high traffic stations and terminals,” he said.

To cut down the number of vehicles in the central business district, three major integrated transport terminals (ITTs) outside the city core, such as Bandar Tasik Selatan (South), Gombak (East) and Sungai Buloh (North), will be created.

The ITT Bandar Tasik Selatan is already under construction while the ITT Gombak, which will be built on a fast-track basis, is expected to be ready by the end of 2010.

A third ITT, which may be located in Sungai Buloh, will serve north-bound inter-city express buses beyond 2012.

The south and east ITTs will enable the authorities to divert 750 inter-city buses from the south of Peninsular Malaysia and the east coast from the city centre every day.

Within the city centre, Ong said, there would be two types of public transport hubs — the intracity terminal hubs at Pasarama Kota, Plaza Rakyat and Pudu, to facilitate the flow of traffic from the suburbs into the city, and 14 “Hentian Akhir Bandar” (HAB) or City Final Termi-nals – which will facilitate the movement of passengers and public transport vehicles within the city centre to reduce congestion. — Bernama

Residents want LRT station in Sunway
2009/12/23

UBANG JAYA: The deadline for objection to the light-rail transit (LRT) extension project may be over, but residents are hoping that they can still have a say in the plan.

Residents' representatives from Subang Jaya and Sunway held a discussion with Subang Jaya assemblyman Hannah Yeoh at her office yesterday.

Bandar Sunway Residents' Association chairman A. Balakrishnan said the residents had requested for a station in Sunway, as the plan, announced in September, did not include the area.

"We have about 40,000 residents in the area and four colleges. As we know, most of the students take public transport, so by having a station there, it will make it more convenient for them.


"The nearest station in the plan is located about 5km away in Jalan Jengka. It will not solve the traffic problem around the area as we will still have to drive or take the feeder bus to get to the LRT station. It will be better if we have our own station.

Balakrishnan later told Streets that during a meeting with the Railway Department, it was said that the suggestion to include Sunway in the new LRT route was not feasible, both technically and financially.

"However, we were told by Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd that the ridership would increase by five per cent, so there is even more reason to have a station here," he said.

The RM7 billion extension plan includes 13 extra stations each for the Kelana Jaya and Ampang line, including an interchange station at Putra Heights.

Prasarana group managing director Datuk Idrose Mohamed had also announced that 35 sets of four-car trains and 13 sets of six car-trains would be commissioned to cater to the increase in the number of commuters.

Meanwhile, Yeoh said 164 residents who attended the public display of the LRT line extension project agreed with the proposed extension while 68 objected due to sound pollution and inadequate packing facilities. -- By Nuradzimmah Daim

Site possession was given to contractor YTL Corporation Berhad on November 17, 2006, and the project is to be completed by April 2010. The Sentul station is part of the Sentul Raya masterplan development under YTL.

KTMB To Open Tender For Purchase Of 36 EMU Trains
January 04, 2010 16:02 PM

BUTTERWORTH, Jan 4 (Bernama) -- Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd (KTMB) expects to open tender for the purchase of 36 electric multiple unit (EMU) trains worth RM2 billion in the next three to six months.

Its President, Dr Aminuddin Adnan, said KTMB was looking at prospective suppliers from international companies in Europe, China and Japan.

"We want to speed up the process as want to acquire the EMU in 2012," he told reporters after a ceremony here on Monday to handover cheques to squatters affected by the Ipoh-Padang Besar double-track electric railway project.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat officiated the event where 134 squatters received cash consolation amounting to a total of RM42,000.

On the EMU, Ong said the potential EMU to be purchased would have six compartments.

The present EMU trains used by the railway company come with three compartments.

The EMU train should have a speed of 100-120/kmh, Ong said.

"Apart from buying new EMU trains, we also have to repair and refurbish the existing EMU to ensure comfort for passengers," he said.
