MRT project to drive construction sector: OSK
Published: 2011/07/11
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz1RmkyZ4Hf

The Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) system will be a significant driver for the construction sector, says OSK Research Sdn Bhd.

It has maintained an "overweight" rating on the sector.

In a research note today, it said apart from Gamuda and MMC being the main beneficiaries of the KL MRT, KimLun Corp could potentially supply tunnel lining segments for the underground portion.

The final alignment of the 51-km Sungai Buloh-Kajang (SBK) line, of which 9.5 km will be underground, was unveiled last Friday.

OSK Research expects tenders for the elevated portion of the SBK line to be called from now up to September.

The elevated portion costing RM12 billion will be implemented over 20 packages and some 70 contractors have been pre-qualified for this portion.

The pre-qualification exercise for the tunneling works
has closed.

Apart from the Gamuda-MMC joint venture, OSK Research expects most of the competing bids to come from foreign contractors.

As for the remaining two lines, namely Circle Line and Line 3, it is understood that the independent consultants have completed their studies and submitted the proposed alignment to the government for approval.

OSK Research expects the remaining two lines to be implemented on a one-year lag to the SBK line. -- Bernama

Govt takes public feedback into account on MRT stations
Saturday July 9, 2011 By TAN KARR WEI Photo by LIM CHENG KIAT


Work begins: The Semantan station marks the start of the 9.5km MRT
underground route which would resurface at the Maluri Station.


SEVERAL changes have been made to the alignment of the MRT after taking public feedback into account.

The much-awaited final alignment was launched as MY Rapid Transit yesterday by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.

The changes in the alignment was done to minimise land acquisition and environmental impact and also to ease traffic congestion.

In the northern region, there is a change in the RRI station in Sungai Buloh to serve the future development and for better integration with the affordable housing projects.

In the central region, the alignment was tweaked at the Sunsuria development area so that only two commercial lots will be acquired.

The Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI) station originally proposed near the market will be combined with the proposed Section 17 station and moved to the Caltex station so that it would be further away from the residential areas.

The Bukit Bintang East and Bukit Bintang West stations have been combined into the Bukit Bintang Central station, located near the Jalan Sultan Ismail-Jalan Bukit Bintang junction, for better integration with the shopping district and KL Monorail system.

The alignment along Jalan Cheras between Bukit Dukung to Sg Jernih will now run along the Grand Saga highway so that only a few houses will be acquired.

The Bandar Kajang route has been realigned to move away from the town centre so that only one building will be acquired.

Besides the changes in alignment, three provisional stations have been included in the route at RRI, Taman Teknologi Kota Damansara and Bukit Kiara.

Prime Minister launches MY Rapid Transit project

14 July 2011

MALAYSIA: Prime Minister Najib Razak officially launched the MY Rapid Transit project on July 8, granting approval for the Sungai Buloh - Kajang Line.

The 51 km metro line is the first of three totalling 156 km planned under the Greater Kuala Lumpur initiative which aims to put the country's economic and financial hub amongst the 'top 20 most liveable and economically vibrant cities' in the world.

MY Rapid Transit is being promoted and will be owned by government infrastructure body Prasarana, which said the project 'marks an important milestone in the nation's history'. The SBK Line is scheduled to open in 2017, serving a population of 1·2 million to increase mobility as 'an enabler of economic growth for the whole nation'.

Three months of public consultation led to adjustments to the proposed alignment to minimise the impact on property and the environment. The number of stations has been reduced from 35 to 31, of which eight will be underground. There will be four interchanges with KTM Komuter, Ampang LRT and Kelana Jaya LRT services. A fleet of 58 four-car trains is planned, and the end to end journey time will be 88 min.

Land transport authority SPAD expects at least 50% of Klang Valley commuters to switch to public transport, reducing traffic congestion and increasing productivity.

Prasarana has now begun land clearance, and is undertaking tendering with the aim of construction starting in November. Funding will come from state sources.

At the launch SPAD announced it is conducting feasibility studies for similar projects in Johor Bahru and Penang.

On track: Kong (third from right) launching the first EMU train built by CSR
Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Co Ltd at its factory in China earlier this month.


ZHUZHOU: Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd (KTMB) will receive its first set of six-car Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) trains in September while another five sets would be shipped by year-end, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha. He said the remainder of the total 38 sets is expected by June 2012.

Kong said the trains manufactured by CSR Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Co Ltd (CSR ZELC) must be tested on Malaysian tracks before they could be commissioned.

He said the 38 train sets cost RM1.89bil (excluding maintenance, repair and overhaul expenses).

KTMB signed an agreement with CSR ZELC in May 2010 for the purchase of the custom-made EMUs that could run on Malaysian meter gauge track and travel up to 140kph.

KTMB president Dr Aminuddin Adnan said the new units allow an increase in the frequency of trains, which could transport more passengers in shorter time intervals.

He said the EMUs also offer more comfortable travel as they were cleaner and the air-conditioning system is more efficient.

Aminuddin said the trains have security measures like close-circuit television (CCTV) cameras in all the cars.

One coach for each EMU would be designated for female passengers only.

New trains expected to cut waiting time at KTM Komuter lines
Updated: Sunday August 7, 2011 MYT 1:17:05 PM
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...&if_height=650

KUALA LUMPUR: When the newly-acquired trains from CSR Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive from China are put into service for the KTM Komuter lines by the end of this year, train commuters can look forward to shorter waiting times during peak hours.

Commuters on the Rawang-Sungai Gadut, Batu Caves-Port Klang, Sentul-Port Klang and Batu Caves-Rawang routes will benefit from the additional capacity from the trains, technically known as electric multiple units or EMUs.

The first of the 38 EMUs will arrive next month and will be tested before they are put into service.

About 100,000 commuters jam KTM Komuter trains daily during weekdays to travel in about 20 sets of EMUs of three cars each available to them.

From a schedule of 15-minute intervals at one time, which theoretically required at least 36 EMUs to be provided each day by Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd (KTMB), this has since slowed down to 20-minute intervals or, which theoretically means 25 EMUs.

But KTMB does not even have the luxury of 25 EMUs.

Since September 2009, their availability has been down to around 21 EMUs daily because of broken down trains that have not been repaired from 62 EMUs at one time.

On bad and unfortunate days, this can sink to a precariously low of 15 to 18 EMUs per day.

Hence, delays of 40 minutes or more on certain sectors are not uncommon with KTM Komuter trains always packed like sardines during weekdays.

This also amplifies the fact that there is no shortage of passengers for KTM Komuter trains in view of its relatively cheap cost as it only costs RM6 from KL Sentral to Seremban.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha told Bernama that the government had decided to improve the situation through a number of initiatives under the National Key Result Areas (NKRA) for public transport.

The NKRA initiatives were launched in July 2009 by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak as part of the Government Transformation Programme (GTP) towards achieving Vision 2020 and improving the government's service delivery to the people.

Besides improving capacity, Kong said the measures were also to raise the daily ridership to 600,000 public transport commuters in the Klang Valley by the end of 2012.

This target, he said, was 2.5 times more than the current ridership.

"It's a tall order for us but we are working hard to achieve our target," Kong said.

The current daily ridership is about 240,000 for public transport in the Klang Valley, estimated to represent 10 to 12 per cent of the total population in the country's busiest urban centre.

Kong explained that the Klang Valley's public transport services had already been filled to the brim, particularly for rail services (KTM Komuter, RapidKL, LRT and Monorail).

Such a pressing situation demanded the creation of an additional capacity for 360,000 more people to migrate to public transport from private vehicles, he said.

Of the potential increase, 58 percent or 207,000 will be for rail and 42 percent or 153,000 will be for buses.

Rail will be the biggest contributor, with KTM Komuter contributing around 95,000 passengers, the Kelana Jaya LRT line 62,000 and the Ampang LRT line 33,000.

The first step towards improving capacity took place at the end of 2010 when new four-car train sets were introduced on the Kelana Jaya LRT line, the most congested rail line in the Klang Valley, from the previous two-car train sets.

The initiative was to secure "quick wins" for the people's benefit under the NKRA for urban public transport. - Bernama

More progress on track as rail ridership increases
Monday August 15, 2011
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...&if_height=723

KUALA LUMPUR: Since the launch of the GTP early last year, initiatives under the NKRA to improve the quality of urban public transport have yielded positive results.

The Urban Public Transport (UPT) NKRA was formulated to seek ways to encourage the usage of public transport as a preferred mode of transport instead of relying heavily on personal vehicles which have contributed to the increasing traffic congestions in city areas.

Pemandu director for UPT NKRA Ahmad Suhaili Idrus said the load factor for Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) Komuter trains were expected to be reduced from the current 140% to 125% as targeted for this year with the addition of new trains to be delivered soon.

Ahmad Suhaili said the first unit of the 38 six-car trains was expected to be delivered next month while three other sets would be available by end of the year with the remaining units expected to be shipped by the middle of next year.

Ahmad Suhaili also said rail ridership, inclusive of RapidKL Kelana Jaya and Ampang LRT lines, Monorail, KTM Komuter and the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) Transit saw a 15.7% increase, or 79,269 passengers, between January and May when compared with the same period last year.

He attributed the result to the full operations of the recent addition of 29 four-car train sets to the Kelana Jaya LRT line.

MRT Co takes over
By Azlan Abu Bakar Published: 2011/08/19
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html



Putrajaya: The Cabinet has set up MRT Co, a company under the Minister of Finance Inc, to directly oversee the multi-billion ringgit Klang Valley MY Rapid Transit (MRT) project.

MRT Co will officially become MY Rapid Transit project and asset owner, currently held by Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd, from September 1.

The government will name a local as MRT Co's chief executive officer at a later date, according to a statement by Performance Management and Delivery Unit (Pemandu) yesterday.

"MRT Co's immediate and critical priority is to focus on ensuring the smooth implementation of the Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line," Pemandu said.

With MRT Co in the picture, Prasarana will now be able to focus on its role to ensure an efficient and reliable public transportation service in the Klang Valley, it added.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said in the statement that the government is fully committed to the timely and cost-effective delivery of the project.

He said it is necessary to have a dedicated unit focusing solely on ensuring that the country's biggest ever infrastructure is implemented with undivided attention to details, while maintaining transparent governance throughout the process.

"Ideally, and as we have heard from the public many times, having an efficient transport system in Klang Valley is extremely critical," Najib said.

MRT Co's immediate tasks will be to improve the current light rail transit services and line expansion projects, as well as expand monorail capacity and existing bus services, and resolve congested routes.

The company will have a project management and technical team comprising experts in mass rail. The team will also include experts seconded from Prasarana's MRT team.

Its scope of responsibility involves project monitoring and tracking of the construction of all elevated structures, stations, depots as well as underground works, including tunneling and stations.

Prasarana's subsidiary RapidKL will be the operator of MY Rapid Transit once it is completed.

MMC-Gamuda serves as the project delivery partner.

Other parties involved include the Land Public Transport Commission as the supervising agency.
