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.
New generation of monorail trains by Scomi is of international standard

THE RM494mil Kuala Lumpur Monorail fleet expansion project is right on track with the production of a new generation of four-car monorail trains already underway at Scomi Rail Bhd’s Engineering, Technology and Innovation centre in Rawang.

This expansion project is part of the Government Transformation Programme’s plan to improve public transportation.

...

“We will be delivering the first two trains for the KL project by end of this year while the complete delivery will be done by the second quarter of next year,” he said, adding that the factory is capable of producing 500 monorail cars a year.

He said that under the KL project tender, they have also undertaken the upgrading of all the stations, construction of a new depot and upgrading the electrical and mechanical systems.

Contract Strukton for monorail vehicles in Kuala Lumpur
http://www.strukton.com/en-us/Recent...alaLumpur.aspx



UTRECHT, 16 December 2011 – Strukton Rolling Stock is to supply traction inverters for new Kuala Lumpur monorail vehicles. Strukton has won the contract for the inverters from monorail manufacturer Scomi Rail.

The existing KL Monorail line connects major sights in the centre of Kuala Lumpur. Its growing success leads to the need for new and modern vehicles with additional capacity. Strukton Rolling Stock will deliver 72 traction inverters for the 12 new monorail vehicles. These state-of-the art lightweight and powerful traction inverters will make the motor performance powerful and energy-saving.

Scomi Rail has been highly successful in the monorail market, which is rapidly expanding. Fast growing emerging cities are looking for alternatives for conventional metro systems. These alternatives should be cheaper and easier & faster to build. Scomi Rail has chosen Strukton as its new traction supplier due to its experience and track record with similar vehicles like the VAL metro trains. Strukton has a strong position in the field of powerful and lightweight inverters. The low weight of the inverters was a decisive factor for Scomi Rail to select the Strukton inverters. The inverters will deliver up to 220 kW each at a weight of less than 120 kg.

The deliveries will commence at the end of February 2012. Strukton Rolling Stock and Scomi Rail look forward to a lasting and successful relationship.

KUALA LUMPUR: The passenger traffic on the RapidKL LRT Kelana Jaya line has increased by about a quarter last year compared with the previous year, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha.

He said that since the 35 sets of new four-car trains came into operation early last year, passenger traffic had increased by 22.3%.

“The number of passengers have gone up due to this capacity increase initiative,” he said at the Second Annual Modern Railways conference here yesterday.

The number of passengers from 6am to 9am increased from 433,544 in 2010 to 530,037 in 2011.

Kong said a new four-car train set was expected to be in operation by year-end on the KL Monorail while 38 sets of six-car trains for the Komuter system were expected to be in operation in stages by September.

“Under the National Key Result Areas, the ministry has planned 11 initiatives for four main categories of public transportation – bus services, rail services, integration of systems and network for the Klang Valley – to increase public transport use to 25% by next year,” he added.

Najib launches country’s first bus rapid transit project
By RAZAK AHMAD Published: Saturday June 9, 2012 MYT 5:44:00 PM
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...057&sec=nation

SUBANG JAYA: The Government's efforts to further improve public transportation received another boost with the launch of the country's first bus rapid transit (BRT) project by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak Saturday.

The BRT comprises of buses traveling either on a network of dedicated bus lanes or on purpose-built elevated lanes, complementing the My Rapid Transit (MRT)currently under construction in the Klang Valley.

Speaking at the inauguration of the project, Najib said the government and related authorities would continue to find viable solutions to address the Klang Valley's traffic congestion.

“The usage of public transport is still low at 17 percent and our target is to push it up to 40 percent by 2020. This will help us achieve the target and we hope that with this project, the urban transport landscape in this country will be something we can be proud of,” said Najib.

The first BRT service, expected to start in the second quarter of 2013, will allow the 500,000 residents in Bandar Sunway and Subang to connect more easily to existing light-rail transit (LRT) systems which currently does not serve their neighbourhoods.

The BRT-Sunway line, covering over 6km via 7stations, will connect Bandar Sunway and Subang commuters with the Kelana Jaya LRT Extension Line at USJ6 and with the KTMB Setia Jaya station near the Federal highway.

The BRT initiative is part of the Government Transformation Programme (GTP) Urban Public Transport National Key Result Area (NKRA), which aims to encourage higher public transport ridership. The project is being built under a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) between the Government owned Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad and Sunway Berhad. Prasarana chairman Tan Sri Ismail said the total cost of the project was still being worked out and that the public would be invited to provide feedback on the proposed alignment of the BRT route once it was ready.

Land Public Transport Commission Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar said the Sunway line was the first of 12 BRT lines proposed for the Klang Valley.

The Global AirRail Awards 2012 with RE:SYSTEMS
http://www.airrailawards.com/GARA2012/Winners.html



The winners of The Global AirRail Awards 2012 with RE:SYSTEMS have been revealed at the ceremony in Stockholm on 24th May 2012.

Global AirRail Awards is the first ever international awards ceremony dedicated to the air-rail market to recognise the best practice in intermodal travel around the world.

North Star AirRail Link of the Year
Express Rail Link



ERL achieved a bumper year in 2011, with its highest ever total ridership (4.82 m), revenue and operating profit in its 10-year history.

There were improvements to the train services, with visible changes such as added scheduled trips in the early hours for customers of the Low Cost Carrier Terminal, new seats and carpets, and free high speed WiFi broadband onboard, as well as unseen improvements like the major overhaul of all trains.

Customers also benefited with value packages for the leisure market, and value-added offers with KLIA’s largest retailer for every ticket purchased. In the area of improvements in ticketing, the acceptance of Malaysia’s most widespread contactless card at the access gates meant better inter-operability with all other rail networks in Kuala Lumpur, as well as the largest network of intra city buses.

Awareness of the services in the local market was enhanced with several media events, with the largest being the movement of the Prime Minister of Malaysia, and the entire Cabinet onboard of the KLIA Ekspres train, during the lead up to the National Day celebration.

Innovation of the Year
Global Ultra PRT

PRT provides a non-stop, on-demand service to passengers. There are many avenues of revenue generation and growth. The OpEx of Heathrow pod is effectively covered by the increase in car park fee, plus the savings made by the bus service and revenue generated by sponsorship all proves the feasibility of such a system. The operational cost will not grow with the next phase of expansion, which will further provide better economies of scale.

ERL wins top air-rail award
Published: 2012/06/11
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...RLREC/Article/

EXPRESS Rail Link, the high-speed railway line between Kuala Lumpur and the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Sepang, has been named "North Star Air-Rail Link of the Year" at the Global AirRail Awards 2012 in Stockholm, Sweden.

Organised by Britain-based airrail NEWS, it is an international awards ceremony dedicated to the air-rail market as part of its programme to promote rail connections with airports and to recognise best practices.

There are almost 200 train services to more than 140 airports worldwide, with 22 of them being dedicated air-rail links.

ERL chief executive officer Noormah Mohd Noor picked up the awards at the ceremony held during the international conference "The Future of Air-Rail - Innovations 2012" on May 24.


Milda Manomaityte, editor-in-chief of airrail NEWS and co-host of the awards, said: "To stay ahead in the competition with other transport modes, airport rail links have to constantly improve their service via new technologies, customer service and marketing.

"The judges looked for excellence in, among other things: service to customers, revenue growth and performance improvements, development and introduction of new services and products, safety and security achievements, and examples of integrations with other transport modes."

Some of the judges said the KLIA Ekspres had worked on all fronts in order to increase awareness and adapt the offer to the more "price wary" segment.

"KLIA Ekspres provides excellent customer service and is continuing to innovate and introduce new products and its range of targeted initiatives to improve services on the KLIA Ekspres is impressive for both the benefits that they bring to customers but also the excellent results for the business in a competitive environment," ERL said in a statement.

Meanwhile, E-MAS became the first railway company in Malaysia to receive the ISO14001:2004 certification for Environmental Management System, which was awarded by Sirim on May 25.

The certification is an important achievement as it further supports ERL's "Go Green" commitment.

These important milestones are being achieved as the company enters its 10th year of operations this year. In about a month's time, ERL would have carried its 40 millionth passenger.

A special promotion to commemorate the 10th anniversary is running from now until August 31.

Customers who buy the KLIA Ekspres Adult Return Trip ticket during the campaign period from this month until August will get a Malaysia Airports Niaga shopping promotional discount voucher worth RM10 for use at selected outlets at KLIA.

At the same time, they will also get a RM5 rebate voucher for taxi or parking at KL Sentral.

RM160b to lift rail transport
By Sharen Kaur Published: 2012/06/21
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz1yNwmCvI2



Malaysia's railway industry will pump up to RM160 billion in total investment between now and 2020 to develop the rail infrastructure, said the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) yesterday.

“The government has invested more than RM50 billion in rail transport since the 1990s. Investment for future rail projects is estimated to reach RM160 billion by 2020,” said SPAD chairman Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar.

The industry generated more than RM1.7 billion in revenue and employed some 9,500 people in 2010, with that numbers set to increase, he told stakeholders yesterday at the Future Rail 2030: National Rail Industry Development Roadmap briefing.

The government’s aspiration to improve land public transport is reflected in the National Key Result Area and National Key Economic Areas.

SPAD is currently undertaking a series of studies under the Urban Rail Development Plan. Among them are the KL Monorail extension plan from Jalan Tun Sambanthan in Brickfields to Happy Garden in Old Klang Road; MRT 2 circle line from Sentul Timur to Ampang; MRT 3 north-south line from Selayang to Putrajaya; and the KTMB freight relieved line from Subang to Port Klang.

SPAD has also started a feasibility study on a high-speed rail project linking Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. Syed Hamid said the study was expected to be completed by year-end.

According to the Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology (MIGHT) website, there are several issues and challenges hampering the development of the local rail industry, including policy and regulation, economy, human capital, technology, lack of investment and environment.

The National Rail Industry Development Roadmap will map out details like reducing foreign dependency, improving greener transportation, capability and capacity, creating new business opportunities for the locals and capturing a bigger share of the US$218 billion (RM690 billion) global rail market.

The initiative for the roadmap started as a foresight programme by MIGHT early last year.

"Today is basically the last engagement with the stakeholders. We hope to finalise the roadmap by August," said MIGHT director of myForesight, Rushdi Abdul Rahim.

The stakeholders are SPAD, MIGHT, Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd, Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd and 60 local railway experts like Scomi Group, Skypark Line, CMC Engineering, SMH Rail and Global Rail.

Bombardier, Thales and Colas also attended the briefing.

Rushdi said the roadmap would take into account the expected RM160 billion investment but the focus would be on developing local expertise, supporting small- and medium-sized enterprises and creating jobs.

"There will be a RM50 billion expenditure on the MY Rapid Transit project and as we do not want to rely on outside expertise, we must develop local talent," he said.

Rushdi also said the high-speed rail project was not part of the RM160 billion total investment.

KUALA LUMPUR: A one-month temporary traffic management plan will be implemented in Jalan Bukit Bintang, here, from Monday to facilitate pre-construction works for the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) project.

In a statement on Friday, MRT Corporation Sdn Bhd said works at the location would include utility piloting which required night closure of one lane along Jalan Bukit Bintang between 11pm and 5am daily, except on weekends and public holidays.

"Piloting works will also be carried out at the pavement for a distance of 150m along Jalan Bukit Bintang," it said.

Safety barriers, hoardings and traffic cones will be installed at the work site to ensure road users and pedestrians are pre-warned of ongoing works.

The MRT project is part of the government's master plan to upgrade and integrate Klang Valley's public transportation system.
