BRT-Sunway Line best solution to traffic congestion
Published: 2012/12/03
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New.../BRTT/Article/



A NEW mode of urban public transport is coming to Bandar Sunway and Subang Jaya, and from the feedback of the stakeholders that the public transport will cater to, it is set to be a hit.

The proposed BRT-Sunway Line - a bus rapid transit system to be built under a Public-Private Initiative between Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd (Prasarana) and Sunway Bhd is expected to be in service in 2015.

Several meetings with the project stakeholders, including highway authorities, KTM Bhd, highway operators, Department of Environment, elected representatives, city halls, municipals and resident associations, have been held to gauge their views on the project. A five-day exhibition was held at the Sunway Pyramid shopping mall from October 21. The latest engagement was held at the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) on November 24 with residents from Bandar Sunway and Subang Jaya.

From these numerous meetings, while there were concerns about the new urban public transport, the signal on the subject is clear. The majority of the people in Bandar Sunway and Subang Jaya are favourable to the project. The current traffic congestion in the area puts the BRT-Sunway Line as the best solution to the problem.

While the stakeholders of BRT-Sunway Line are for the project, there still remain some concerns on matters such as the location of the covered pedestrian walkway and the parking and feeder bus service that Prasarana will look into.

At present, Prasarana is the owner of the country's light rail transit (LRT) Ampang and Kelana Jaya Lines, the KL Monorail, and the RapidKL public bus service. The three urban public transport systems have been around the Klang Valley for quite some time. Of the three, the LRT has become the most popular mode of transport for inter-city commuting in Klang Valley. As such, the two lines - Ampang and Kelana Jaya are being extended under Prasarana's Line Extension Project (LEP) to cover bigger residential and commercial areas so that more people can enjoy the benefits of the urban public transport system.

For the Bandar Sunway and Subang Jaya areas, Prasarana has identified BRT as the best mode of urban public transport for the place, considering the land constraint and traffic conditions over there.

The BRT-Sunway Line will have seven halts strategically located within Bandar Sunway and Subang Jaya along its elevated 5.4km alignment. The network will be connected to alignments of the KTM Komuter and the Kelana Jaya LRT Extension Line at the KTM Komuter Setia Jaya Station and the proposed Station 7 of the Kelana Jaya Extension Line.

Such connections will allow the BRT-Sunway Line to be accessible to the KTM Komuter and RapidKL LRT riders via a seamless travelling, thus making Klang Valley the proud owner of a comprehensive and integrated urban transport system at par to those available in developed countries.

Improving the urban public transport system has been identified as a crucial element for Malaysia to realise its aspiration to be a developed and high-income nation come the year 2020.

The government has even incorporated it into the National Key Result Areas (NKRA) of the Government Transformation Programme.

The BRT-Sunway Line and the LRT are more than just urban public transport systems for Klang Valley. They are the solution towards resolving the traffic congestion issue in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.

An observation of the operation of the Kelana Jaya LRT line (1/2/2013)

Taman Bahagia station to KL Sentral station (about 10.2 km), covered in 15 minutes 35 seconds, passing through 7 stations in between.



Rolling stock : Bombardier Advanced Rapid Transit (ART) Mark II



The average speed throughout the run was 39.7 km/h. Maximum speed was 82.6 km/h. In general, when the train passes through very tight curves, the speed is around 30-something kilometre per hour.

KLIA Transit (airport train that stops at all stations between the airport and KL Sentral). This is different from KLIA Ekspres, which is a non-stop airport express train.







The rolling stock is Siemens Desiro ET 425 M, built in 2001.





The top speed of the EMU is 160 km/h, though at times, it can run slightly higher than 160 km/h.

KUALA LUMPUR: Thunderstorms and heavy rains in the evening in the city centre used to leave commuters frustrated, especially when it comes to changing between train stations.

In the case of a downpour, the commuter riders would often be trapped at the interchange station, causing a high traffic of commuters who would endure delay in their journey.

Another challenge would be the need for commuters to purchase different tickets when boarding the Ampang LRT line, Kelana Jaya LRT line and the KL Monorail.

Under the Improving Urban Public Transport NKRA, all these have changed with the introduction of the station integration and the new Automated Fare Collection (AFC) system which have provided a solution to the hassle and overcame the inconvenience of the past.

Besides the introduction of the single ticketing system, Prasarana has also provided convenience to the public with air-conditioned halls and walkways to change trains and continue with their journey.

Hang Tuah and Titiwangsa are integrated stations for the Ampang LRT and the KL Monorail while the Masjid Jamek station is an integrated station for both the Kelana Jaya and Ampang LRT lines.

Many facilities have also been installed at the stations such as escalators and lifts, new ticketing gates, and ticket vending machines.

A walkway at the Titiwangsa station has been installed with glass railings to separate the entrance and exit lanes to allow more effective commuting.

The old Stored Value Ticket (SVT) has been re-branded as MyRapid Card under the AFC system, which allows commuters to conveniently add value on their cards at the ticket vending machines.

The AFC, launched in July 2011, was implemented in stages with the entire LRT and Monorail networks fully integrated under the system.

The next phase of the AFC integration is to cover the RapidKL bus network. The system should be going full-scale by early next year with preparatory works already underway.
