Installation of platform screen doors on the monorail line.



The installation of the platform screen doors will facilitate the introduction of new longer 4 car monorail sets. Existing set is 2 car long.

Currently, the monorail line (8.6 km long) serves 65,000 passengers a day. With the introduction of new, longer trains, it can serve up to 130,000 to 140,000 passengers a day.

Rapid KL LRT: Kelana Jaya - Port Klang Line (LRT3)
Shah Alam LRT link in pipeline
SHAREN KAURPublished: 2013/04/24
http://www.btimes.com.my/articles/20...606/pix_middle



RM5B-RM6B PLAN: Prasarana is expected to call for tenders next year

THE government may build a third light rail transit (LRT) line from Kelana Jaya to Port Klang, believed to be costing RM5 billion to RM6 billion.

Dubbed the Shah Alam LRT line, Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd (Prasarana) is expected to call for tenders for the project next year, after a proper due diligence to be undertaken by the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) is completed.

Prasarana is a wholly-owned government company established by the Finance Ministry and the operator and asset owner of LRT lines.

SPAD chief development officer Azmi Abdul Aziz confirmed that the new Shah Alam LRT line is on the drawing board and that it will span 20km to 30km.

He, however, declined to comment on the estimated development cost.

Azmi said it will be an open tender and companies with existing contracts for the Kelana Jaya and Ampang LRT line extension projects will be allowed to bid.

"It is no more like before where companies that had won LRT jobs couldn't bid for the same development. As long as the companies are qualified and have met the necessary funding and technical requirements, they can bid," he said.

"This is totally a new line and very important for the public. Shah Alam is becoming densely populated, with new townships coming up.

"The new line would allow people from Port Klang and Shah Alam to come to the city without hassle. It will complement the existing Kelana Jaya and Ampang LRT lines," he added.

It is learnt that the Shah Alam line will start from the LRT station in Kelana Jaya, head towards the Shah Alam stadium and pass through Klang, before stopping in Port Klang.

In Port Klang, the LRT line will also be linked to the KTM commuter station to serve the growing population.

Malaysia is currently extending the existing Ampang and Kelana Jaya LRT lines under a RM7 billion plan.

The two extensions involve a total of 34km and Prasarana have awarded almost all of the contracts for the jobs.

Hi, I just finished my video of the KL Monorail system. I had a blast riding it, and exploring Kuala Lumpur scoping out good places to view the monorail. I also had a great time riding the other trains in KL, going to the Batu Caves, Genting Highlands, Maleka, and Penang (Georgetown). I rode the train from Singapore all the way up to Bangkok as part of my holiday.

Please have a look at my video!

Thanks,

Luke

This is at the Titiwangsa Station, the northern end of the line, right?

Thanks for any insight.

That photo is very old. The photo was taken at KL Sentral (notice that there was no Nu Sentral complex which currently stand between the KL Sentral building and monorail station.

Those buses were meant to serve as feeder bus for monorail line, back then KL Monorail was under separate management which was unrelated to RapidKL in any manner. KL Monorail only became part of RapidKL network in 2008, fully integrated with RapidKL other LRT lines in 2012.

Monorail operation will continue even when they install the PSDs, as they are doing it during line closure.

The design of the trains, by Designworks USA of the BMW Group, has been finalized but the livery of the trains will be determined at a later stage. Each train set will have four cars and can carry 1,200 people.

While the construction of the MRT 1 (Sungai Buloh-Kajang) line is ongoing, there is a talk of building MRT 2 which is another north-south high capacity mass rapid transit line, but on more on the eastern side of Klang Valley.

Why choosing bus? Why not a monorail or lrt since the infrastructure seems equally heavy?
