Kuala Lumpur is Malaysia's national transportation hub, but also the highest proportion of the metropolitan transportation travel Malaysia plans to implement the 'City tour + rail connection' model of development, to Kuala Lumpur as the core, the track will be distributed with the city to form pearl cluster link up to build 'Kuala Lumpur City Center + surrounding satellite' galaxy of urban layout, and further open up the Economic corridors, enhance urban cohesion.

EMU by large inter-city traffic, transit-oriented transportation requirements, China's CSR Zhuzhou tailored to meet the city's passenger transport corridor group equipment. Interval for the characteristics of a short stop in Kuala Lumpur, the train has a high starting acceleration function, 50 seconds can rapidly accelerate to 100 km per hour, known as the Ferrari in the EMU The EMU project fully operational, the train departure time to make Kuala Lumpur shortened from 30 minutes to 7.5 minutes to travel with local people to a great convenience. the aircraft cabin door using the door lock technology, in the case of large passenger flow to ensure the safety of passengers.

KTMB buys 38 new trains
Monday September 19, 2011
http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...75&sec=central

KTMB president Dr Aminuddin Adnan, who is aware of the various problems faced by commuters, said they have bought 38 new six-car train sets (SCS) after an allocation of RM1.8bil was pumped in through the National Key Result Area project.

“The first set of SCS is scheduled to arrive at Port Klang on Sept 25.

“Another five more sets will be delivered between November and December, while the remaining 32 are scheduled to be delivered in stages from January to June 2012,” he told StarMetro during an interview recently.



Sleek:
A picture of the new six-car train set put up by KTM at KL Sentral for public display.


He said the first batch of SCS would be sent for commissioning and testing by the manufacturer, CSR Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Co Ltd, and monitored closely by Land Public Transport Commis-sion.

“The tests will include how it responds to our signalling system, functions of braking and door systems as well as realiability of the train,” said Dr Aminuddin, adding that about 95,000 commuters were using the KTM Komuter trains daily.

“To ease congestion, we are using two sets of the Electric Train Services.

“The new trains will enable us to accommodate 150,000 to 200,000 passengers daily,” said Dr Aminuddin, adding that the first batch would only be operational from January 2012 onwards.

KTMB has set up an exhibit on details of the new Komuter at KL Sentral for public display.



Spacious: A picture of the interior of the new six-car train set.

Called My Komuter, the train has a design speed of 140km per hour and an operating speed of 120km per hour.

Newly-added features of My Komuter include LCD info screens, LED destination indicator, two coaches for women, priority seating zone, dynamic route map, intercom and CCTV.

KTMB now has 53 stations with the addition of two new ones in Sungai Gadut and Senawang to take passengers from Batu Caves to Sungai Gadut and Tanjung Malim to Port Klang.

KTM Komuter started its services with 64 Electric Multiple Units. On Aug 3, 1995, the first KTM Komuter train began taking passengers from Kuala Lumpur to Rawang. Free trips were offered until Aug 11, 1995.

It began operating commercially between these two destinations and then extended to Salak South on September 1995.

From then on, it gained popularity among commuters, who do not want to be caught in traffic congestion.

It was reported that KTM Komuter contributed RM84.63mil to group revenue in 2006, higher than KTM Intercity’s profit of 70.94mil in the same year.

According to the Transport Ministry’s 2008 statistics, the ridership for the KTM Komuter is about 36.557 million passengers per annum.

However, over the years, its services had deteriorated considerably due to poor maintenance.

Limited spare parts has also resulted in most coaches being left in the depots, thus affecting frequency of service.

Lack of funds and expensive spare parts have also led to the deterioration of service.

KTM gets first batch of electric train coaches from China
Friday September 23, 2011
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...899&sec=nation



First batch: Kong (in tie) inspecting one of the electric
train coaches in Port Klang Thursday.

PORT KLANG: Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTM) has received the first batch of six electric train coaches from the Transport Ministry.

Its minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said the Six-Car-Set (SCS) manufactured by China's Zhu Zhou Electric Locomotives Co Ltd were shipped from Shanghai Port on Sept 13 and reached Westport at 2am yesterday.

“Unloading work began from 8am and was completed at 5pm,” said Kong, who was at the presentation ceremony at Wharf 3, Westport in Port Klang.

He said the coaches were part of the 38 new sets for the KTM Komuter service which are being financed via allocations from the Federal Government under the sixth initiative of the National Key Results Area programme.

“Under this initiative, RM1.894bil has been spent to buy the 38 sets which will help improve the quality of the KTM Komuter service,” Kong said.

He said delivery of the sets would be in batches and completed by May next year.

“The coaches will undergo operational and security tests before they are deemed safe for use,” he said, adding that it would take one to two months to test each set.

“The sets will be sent to the depot in Batu Gajah Perak for tests. The first train is expected to start service by December.”

Kong said his ministry was optimistic that with the new trains, the schedule of train arrivals could be shortened from 30 minutes to just 10 minutes and the target to increase capacity from 95,000 commuters to between 150,000 and 200,000 would be achieved.

Two sets of EMU trains being tested

Progress on track: Kong (third from left) looking at the first set of
the EMU train at KTMB’s academy in Batu Gajah yesterday.


BATU GAJAH: Two sets of the six-car electric multiple unit (EMU) trains are being tested at the KTMB academy here.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said the first EMU set arrived from China on Sept 22, while the second unit arrived on Oct 19.

Four more sets will be arriving by month-end.

Kong said all six sets would be tested before hitting the tracks to ensure the technical specifications and safety features had been adhered to.

“The remaining 32 sets will be shipped in stages. KTMB expects to get all the sets by May next year.

“This means the 38 EMU trains will be fully operational by June next year,” he said after being briefed on the testing and commissioning process at the academy here yesterday.

Once all 38 sets are on track, KTMB will be able to serve between 150,000 and 200,000 passengers a day compared to the present 95,000.

It will also improve frequency from 30 minutes to only 10 minutes.

Kong said the design speed for the EMU was 140kph, but the operational speed would be 120kph. The 38 sets cost RM1.894bil.
