LRT station upgrades completed by end 2011
September 6th, 2010

KUALA LUMPUR: Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd (Prasarana) has begun upgrading the Masjid Jamek, Hang Tuah and Titiwangsa light rail transit (LRT) stations to implement disabled-friendly features such as link bridges from the Kelana Jaya to Ampang LRT lines as well as lifts, ramps, toilets, chair lifts and elevators.

The upgrades are scheduled for completion by the end of 2011.

Prasarana will be spending RM51 million to upgrade these three LRT stations to provide an integrated transportation system with improved connectivity, accessibility and convenience for travelers.

The initiative includes a six-storey parking lot at the Gombak LRT station with 1,260 bays and one level specifically allocated for women.

The parking lot will also feature a parking guidance system, closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras and a panic button system.

Once completed, the parking rate would be a fixed rate of RM3 per entry for LRT commuters. Until then, a temporary parking area with 300 bays is available for commuters during the construction period.

Scomi Eng bags RM494m KL Monorail job
By Chong Jin Hun of The Edge Financial Daily
Friday, 17 December 2010 14:28
http://www.theedgeproperty.com/news-...orail-job.html

KUALA LUMPUR: Scomi Engineering Bhd on Thursday, Dec 16 received the letter of award for the RM494 million KL Monorail Fleet Expansion Project from Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd (SPNB).

The job will take 31 months to complete, Scomi Engineering told Bursa Malaysia. No further details were provided on the scope of the project in the filing with the exchange.

Scomi Engineering said the project would not have an impact on its current year financials but is expected to "contribute positively" to its future earnings. The letter of award followed SPNB's letter of intent to Scomi Engineering last week.

In July this year, Scomi Engineering had handed in its proposal for the monorail expansion to SPNB. News reports earlier indicated the company might supply 48 coaches for the expansion.

The 8.6km KL Monorail comprises 11 stations linking Kuala Lumpur Sentral with prime locations in the city. Construction of the KL Monorail which was launched in August 2003, had cost RM1.18 billion then.

Scomi Engineering closed unchanged on Thursday at RM1.02 with 99,900 shares changing hands.

^Mumbai monorail trains being tested. KL Monorail will probably get similar train as Mumbai's.

The next decade will se KL's public transport expand rapidly. The double tracking project for the KTM electric trains, LRT expansion, MRT expansion and the monorail upgrade.

Boost for urban public transport
Monday January 17, 2011
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...329&sec=nation

PETALING JAYA: The Transport Ministry will focus on enhancing the urban public transport system over the next few years following what has been described as a successful 2010 under the National Key Results Area (NKRA).

Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said his ministry would work to finish a study on a Bus Rapid Transit system in the Klang Valley.

Commuters in and around the Klang Valley will also get 306 new bus stops at locations where there are currently no shelters.

About 200 new buses will be operated by RapidKL by the end of the year to improve current services, especially feeder services to/from rail stations and services at undeserved areas or “white spaces”.

For the KTM Komuter service, a new train depot and other support facilities will be built to accommodate the new 38 sets of six-car trains while existing stations will also undergo upgrades and improvements.

On the Kelana Jaya line, 35 sets of four-car light rail transport (LRT) trains will be operating to further increase the capacity of the system.

To reduce congestion in the central business district, the Gombak Integrated Terminal will be completed and operational by year-end to help streamline express bus services to the eastern and northern corridors.

Integration and pedestrian facilities upgrading works at key stations will also be focused on providing intra-modal and inter-modal transfers for commuters’ comfort and convenience.

Park and Ride facilities for LRT and KTM stations would also be completed with more than 5,000 additional parking bays.

The Land Public Transport Commission will revamp the entire public transport system, take over all licence-issuing authorities, integrate smart ticketing and monitor the overall standard performance of all public transport services.

MRT may cost over RM36.6bil
Lobbying has begun on locations and types of stations
By THEAN LEE CHENG Monday January 17, 2011



PETALING JAYA: The cost of building the mass rapid transit (MRT) transport system, which is scheduled to begin construction in six months, may swell beyond the projected RM36.6bil as developers and residents have begun lobbying on the proposed locations and types of stations.

Business leaders want the MRT stations to be located close to the centre of commercial activity, in some cases where they have projects or plan to build one, but residents living near or adjacent to the proposed lines have voiced objection against the MRT tracks being built above ground and want the lines and stations to be underground so as to avoid congestion and noise pollution issues.

At the heart of the matter is the alignment of the MRT line, particularly where it should go, where it should stop, and lobbying have begun to have more than 9.5km of the first phase of the 60km Sg Buloh-Kajang line constructed underground.

The entire MRT line is estimated to run a total of 150km at a cost of RM36.6bil. Other lines will be added later. All these lines, together with the existing Star, LRT and Komuter rail will form part of the country's Urban Transport master plan.

At the session with business communities, developers who own shopping malls and commercial developments were lobbying for the line and station to be located at, or as close to their commercial properties as possible.

Prasarana reshuffles top management
By Marina Emmanuel Published: 2011/01/24
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

A state-owned company that implements the national transportation plan has been revamped as the government mounts strong efforts to improve public transportation system in Malaysia.

Business Times learnt that the top management at Syarikat Prasanara Negara Bhd has been tweaked, as the company prepares to take on bigger projects recently announced, including Kuala Lumpur's first mass rapid transit system (MRT).

The MRT system project which comes under the government's Economic Transformation Programme, is expected to start in July.

Most of the organisational changes at Prasanara took effect from January 1 this year and they include some reshuffling and also new hirings.

It is learnt that the revamp of Prasarana's organisational structure is aimed, among others, at placing the company's core business at the forefront and ensuring that solid support is given to the respective core business teams.

Prasarana's former group director for infrastructure Zulkifli Mohd Yusuf has now assumed the responsibility of the company's project development division, which is expected to be tasked with the Light Rail Transit (LRT) extension project (known as the LEP), the new MRT project and the property development department.

The company's chief operating officer for buses, Datuk Mohamed Hazlan Hussain, has been redesignated as a director for buses and now tasked with the group's bus strategy. He, however, is still assuming the post of chief operating officer (Bus) for Rapid KL.

Among the new faces brought into the company is Jaizal Kamar Jalaludin, who has been appointed director of human capital.

Jaizal's last position was as global human resources manager with Dunham Bush Holdings Bhd. He has also served Malaysian Airline System Bhd, British American Tobacco Malaysia Bhd and Cadbury Confectionary (M) Sdn Bhd.

Rapid Penang Sdn Bhd's chief executive officer Azhar Ahmad will remain in his current position.

Prasanara's general manager of group communications Ebi Azly Abdullah has been appointed chief operating officer for the company's wholly-owned subsidiary, Panorama Langkawi Sdn Bhd (PLSB).

In his new capacity, Ebi has been tasked with further promoting and positioning PLSB as a leading tourist destination in Langkawi.

Meanwhile, a new department known as customer experience management, has been set up by the company and it will be managed by transport planning and commercial director V. Ravindran.

The new unit is said to work on identifying trends and chart a new strategy at improving the overall customer experience for all of SPNB's transportation products.

Work on LRT extensions to start next month
Shahrim Tamrin Friday, February 4th, 2011 08:33:00
http://www.mmail.com.my/content/6277...art-next-month

PETALING JAYA: Work on the first phase of the extension to the Kelana Jaya Light Rail Transit (LRT) line will start next month.

This was confirmed by Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd (Prasarana) group managing director Shahril Mokhtar in an exclusive interview with The Malay Mail.

“The rail extension project will begin next month from Kelana Jaya to Lembah Subang to Glomac Business Centre. It’s a 4km stretch for a start.”

The proposed extension project, also known as the LEP, will then be extended further through Subang, USJ and ending at the LRT hub in Putra Heights.

Shahril said the 17km extension will be constructed in stages. “It will be built gradually, over time, after the public feedback is wrapped up on certain alignments and also once clearances are obtained from local authorities as well as the State government,” he said, adding that the extension line will have 13 new stations.

All stations will have the necessary facilities which include lifts, escalators, surau and toilets. They will also be equipped with facilities for the disabled such as ramps, lifts, tactiles, low ticket counters and toilets.

The Malay Mail understands the proposed stations are the only transit ones in the Klang Valley with accessibility for handicapped users.

“LEP will be commissioned by end of 2013 and from our planning drafts, the LRT extension line will be operational by 2014,” said Shahril.

In November, Prasarana announced Trans Resources — the construction arm of public-listed TRC Synergy Bhd — would undertake the Kelana Jaya extension project under a contract worth RM950 million over 30 months to undertake a 9.2km extension from the Kelana Jaya station to Summit (Station No. 7).

The sub-contractors for the fabrication and delivery of segmental box girder jobs worth RM93.16million, expected to take 21 months to complete, are UEM Builders Bhd and Intria Bina Sdn Bhd.

Prasarana also announced the main contractors for the new 7.4km stretch from the Seri Petaling station to Station No. 5 on the Ampang line would be Bina Puri Holdings Bhd and Tim Sekata.

Apart from this contract valued at RM634.64mil, expected to take 27 months to complete, both firms were also given the RM67.7 million contract for fabrication and delivery of segmental box girder jobs, which is expected to take 19 months to complete.

The tender for the facilities works under Package B for both lines will be called upon approval of the final railway scheme, expected by the middle of this year.

Package B will involve a 7.8km extension from Station 7 to the Putra Heights station on the Kelana Jaya line while the Ampang line will be extended another 10.3km from Station No. 5 to the Putra Heights Station.

More four-car trains on the line
Shahrim Tamrin Friday, February 4th, 2011 08:33:00
http://www.mmail.com.my/content/6277...art-next-month

MORE four-car trains will be provided for Kelana Jaya LRT line this year.

Prasarana group managing director Shahril Mokhtar said during peak hours, more trains would be provided to cater for the ever increasing demand for the services.

“The public can expect further improvements in the Kelana Jaya LRT service this year. Currently, there are 24 four-car trains already delivered and the balance of 11 to be delivered in stages till the second quarter of this year,” said Shahril, who took over the helm of Prasarana on Oct 1.

He said the effort for improvement was in accordance with the government aspiration to increase public transport modal share by 25 per cent by the end of next year. Modal share is a traffic/ transport term that describes the number of trips or percentage of travelers using a particular type of transportation.

“At the same time, Prasarana has trimmed the waiting time from two minutes 50 seconds during peak hours since November last year. When I took over few months ago, I kept thinking of how to improve the LRT service after experiencing packed trains during peak hours.”

For a man who regularly took LRT to work, he understands the need for continuous improvement of public transport.

He was previously chief operating officer of Land Public Transport Commission (LPTC). Prior to that, Shahril was seconded as an adviser to the Economic Planning Unit of the Prime Minister’s Department to assist the government in setting up the Commission, particularly in drafting the LPTC Act 2010 and Land Public Transport Act 2010 which was passed by Parliament in May.

He was also involved in the laboratory for urban public transport improvement under the Government Transformation Plan.

Shahril said the increase in the LRT frequency was made possible with hard work and dedication from the operator's personnel.

“Previously, we operated 32 to 34 trains during peak hours. Two months ago, I asked my team if it’s possible to increase the frequency and they said ‘yes’.

“Earlier, the reason not to operate more trains was due to safety concerns if we increased the frequency. After several trial runs, we found it was alright to operate up to 40 trains which comprise 18 four-car and 22 two-car trains.

"We managed to cut down the waiting interval to two minutes 15 seconds but we want to keep improving further.”

It's not enough to just build more MRT lines. What is also critically needed is a good feeder network.

Given KL's spread out city structure, a robust minibus system will probably be needed. Indeed, this may be key to complement to ensure the success of the train network.
