KL monorail fleet expansion project to double passenger capacity
16 January 2012 | last updated at 11:15pm By Nuradzimmah Daim
http://www.nst.com.my/streets/centra...pacity-1.32746

KUALA LUMPUR: The upgrading works on the KL monorail stations is 27 per cent completed.

Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd's media affairs manager Azhar Ghazali said the upgrading of Medan Tuanku, Imbi, and Raja Chulan stations, which is part of the fleet expansion project, commenced last September.

"Work at the Tun Sambathan, Maharajalela and KL Sentral stations started last November, while work on remaining five stations started in October last year.

"The stations need to be upgraded to cater for the four-car trains due to the increased ridership.

"Traffic and announcement signages including flagmen, blinkers and notices have been put in place to facilitate traffic flow and public safety," he said, adding that the upgrade works are expected to be completed in July next year.

On the design of the new monorail cars which was posted online by Transit (The Association For The Improvement Of Mass Transit) on its website, he said the matter is being looked into.

Transit posted pictures of the new four-car train in two different schemes -- blue and red, with green coloured passenger seats.

It was reported that the project would improve services by increasing the capacity of the trains and improve safety on station platforms.

Scomi Rail Bhd was awarded the RM494 million project for 12 new four-car trains.

The first four trains are expected to start operations on Nov 15.

The new trains will double the capacity of the KL monorail line to 6,400 passengers per hour per direction.

KL Monorail is currently using 12 two-car trains which can accommodate about 200 people per trip and has a daily ridership of 70,000.

The two-car trains are running at 35 per cent over capacity and the ridership is projected to increase.

The upgrade plan will include the installation of automated gates on the platform of the monorail stations which would only open when the train arrives.

ERL on track to complete new link, woo more users
Published: 2011/12/01
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz1fMYRungG



EXPRESS Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERL) expects better passenger growth after the completion of the 2.2km extension track linking the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and the new low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) by October next year.

In the first 10 months of this year, ERL carried 13,095 passengers, an increase of 16 per cent from 11,261 in the same period last year.

ERL executive chairman Datuk Seri Mohd Nadzmi Mohd Salleh is confident that the KLIA Express and KLIA Transit ridership will improve further once the rail link service is completed. "The link is now 14.2 per cent complete."

Nadzmi, speaking to reporters after the ISO certification ceremony, said the ride between the ERL station at KLIA and KLIA2 will take three minutes.

The company has invested RM1.1 million to undertake several initiatives to improve customers' experience, which included enhancement of fare collections system, e-ticketing system and free Wi-Fi connectivity.

"The initiatives also included the interior refurbishment of 12 KLIA Express trains, scheduled for completion in April next year," he said.

Yesterday, ERL was officially presented the ISO 9001:2008 certification for the scope provision of rail services between KLIA and KL Sentral by the awarding body Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance.

In his speech earlier, Nadzmi said with the certification, customers are assured that ERL is committed to maintain the highest standards of effectiveness and responsiveness in achieving the company's goal.

ERL is the first train operator in Malaysia to be accorded the ISO certification for total customer satisfaction. Also present was ERL chief executive officer Noormah Mohd Noor.

KUALA LUMPUR: The ERL train extension from KLIA to KLIA2 will be ready by October this year, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha.

“The train journey between KLIA and KLIA2 will take about three minutes. The extension will likely see the volume of ERL passengers doubling,” he added.

ERL extension from KLIA to KLIA2 ready by October

http://thestar.com.my/archives/edito...0119165054.jpg

KUALA LUMPUR: The ERL train extension from KLIA to KLIA2 will be ready by October this year, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha.

"The train journey between KLIA and KLIA2 will take about three minutes. The extension will likely see the volume of ERL passengers doubling," he added.

The ERL services, which include the KLIA Ekspres and KLIA Transit, carry about four to five million passengers every year.

Kong said the project to extend the line to the new low-cost carrier terminal totalled up to RM100mil.

"The project is currently running smoothly and about 25% complete. It is scheduled be ready by Oct 31 this year while the KLIA2's construction is expected to be completed in April 2013," he told reporters after visiting the construction site of the proposed rail extension here Thursday.

He added that the extension was necessary in line with the development of the new terminal as it will enable passengers from KL Sentral to reach the KLIA and KLIA2.

"I hope that when KLIA2 is in full swing, we will be able to make ERL services available 24 hours a day to cater to flight arrivals in the wee hours of the morning," he said.

Currently, ERL services run for 21 hours a day, taking a break between 1am and 4am.

Kong also commended the ERL services for achieving "on-time" performance of 99.83%.

The project to extend the ERL line started in July last year and covers 2.14km.

In 2010, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced plans to build the KLIA2, the world's first mega terminal for low-cost carriers.

He said it was expected to boost the nation's tourism industry by attracting more airlines and visitors.

Malaysia has indeed seen many changes. My first and only visit was way back in 2003. I can't believe how much of the country has changed.

And with the improvements, it looks like Malaysia is on track to become a first-world/developed country on or before year 2020. (same timeframe with Chile).

Anyways

Integrated ticketing? But it already exists over there (for many years now) in the form of the national smart card/IC card they have there (they call it Touch N' Go???)

SPAD's master plan

In November last year, SPAD came up with their masterplan for Klang Valley's public transport. Sungai Buloh Kajang Line is OK, MRT circle line seems ok, but there are other lines that they may have simply drawn without much thought. I got more comments here.

This is the information of the ERL extension to KLIA2, with proposed fare and design of the KLIA2 ERL station. It is an extension of current airport rail link from existing Kuala Lumpur International Airport terminal to future low cost carrier terminal which will be known as KLIA2.

The distance between KL Sentral (transport hub in Kuala Lumpur) and the KLIA 2 will be 59 km. It is scheduled to be completed in October 2012.

LRT, monorail fully integrated

KUALA LUMPUR: KUALA LUMPUR: LIGHT Rail Transit and monorail networks will begin operating today as full integrated stations, allowing commuters to use a single ticketing system when travelling between the two networks.

Prasarana Rail Division group director Khairani Mohamed said this was the second phase of Prasarana's Automatic Fare Collection (AFC) system.

"The LRT for the Ampang and Kelana Jaya lines, and KL Monorail will be fully integrated, starting today (yesterday). People can enjoy the convenience of changing lines within the integrated stations and exiting only at their final destination."

Khairani said the move will effectively upgrade the Hang Tuah and Titiwangsa stations as integrated platforms for the KL Monorail and Ampang LRT.

Masjid Jamek will serve as the integrated station for the LRT lines between Ampang and Kelana Jaya.

While integration works for the Hang Tuah and Titiwangsa stations have been completed, Khairani said there would still be on-going construction work at both sites.

"These are purely renovation works," he said.

Launched in November last year, the first phase of the AFC integrated ticketing system successfully linked the Ampang and Kelana Jaya LRT lines with Masjid Jamek as the integrated station.

Under the AFC system, the old Stored Value Ticket (SVT) was rebranded as MyRapidCard.

MyRapidCard allows commuters to add value in the cards at ticketing vending machines (TVMs). Commuters can also purchase single journey tokens at the TVMs.

The new AFC system also allows the usage of Touch 'n Go cards to commute within its network.

PUTRAJAYA: Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd (KTMB) will be adding 10 new six-car train sets to its KTM Komuter line-up of train fleets this month.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said the new trains would alleviate the congestion on-board the current trains, which were running beyond capacity.

He said the new trains would be able to transport 1,000 passengers at any one time.

The additional trains scheduled for the KTM Komuter service is in tandem with work to build over 6,000 new parking bays across 18 Light Rail Transit (LRT) and KTM Komuter stations in Klang Valley to better facilitate commuters with private vehicles.

He said this exercise would contribute to the Government’s aspiration to increase public transport ridership in the Klang Valley to 25% by the end of the year.

Kong also said his ministry was looking into providing incentives to passengers who use the KTM Komuter, particularly the handicapped, senior citizens and students to lighten their burden of transportation cost.

The initiatives to improve the commuter experience on the LRT and KTM Komuter services fall under the GTP’s Urban Public Transport NKRA, which aims to increase the ridership of public transport in the Klang Valley.

CONSTRUCTION works on the LRT Line Extension Project (LEP) that will serve an additional half a million commuters upon completion has started in full force with the lifting of the first set of segmental box girders (SBG) along the Kelana Jaya line yesterday.

The event was witnessed by asset and project owner Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad (Prasarana), Department of Occupational Safety andHealth (DOSH), project consultant Opus Ace Vector and main contractors Trans Resources Corporation and Sunway Construction for the Kelana Jaya Line and Bina Puri Holdings and MRCB for the Ampang Line.

“This project began some two years ago and we had to overcome many challenges to arrive to this day.

“Among the problems we faced involved land acquisition, resident issues that dealt mostly with the alignment and other issus with the local authorities,” Prasarana group managing director Datuk Shahril Mokhtar said.

He said currently the progress of the project stands at 30% and contracts worth over RM4.5bil has already been awarded.

“The remaining four work packages that is worth RM2.5bil will be awarded in the next two months,” he added.

The four packages are for the Ampang line and supply of the Light Rail Vehicle, construction of Station 12, supply and management of the access card and the engineering procurement construction.

Shahril said the additional 10 stations on the Ampang Line and 12 stations on the Kelana Jaya line along 34.7km of elevated tracks will serve an additional half a million passengers daily in addition to the existing 300,000 that use the current two lines.

These tracks will be built on 14,692 SBGs, that weigh roughly 25 tonnes a piece, and placed on top of 1,270 columns.

In addition to the stations that will be built, an integrated station will be constructed at Putra Heights where the Ampang and Kelana Jaya Lines will meet as well as two provisional stations along the Ampang line.

Shahril said the project will provide some 8,000 to 10,000 job opportunities.

“The total project construction cost was RM7bil,” he added.

The project is due to be completed by the end of 2014.
