The LCCT will revert back to a Cargo Terminal, so a rail link is not required.
KLIA2 serving LCCs will have a rail connection to the ERL.

Never heard of a grade-separated Bus Rapid Transit line. Are any of Kuala Lumpur's new BRT lines gonna be completely grade-separated or will they have any at-grade sections?

If I am not mistaken, Guangzhou have grade separated BRT line with the bus running on elevated tracks.

There are plans to implement at grade BRT lines on Kuala Lumpur's notoriously choked Federal Highway that links Kuala Lumpur to the Selangor capital Shah Alam and Port Klang. Hopefully is not a government ploy to sooth the anger after petrol proces were hiked by 20sen(7 us cents) per litre
http://www.nst.com.my/nation/general...ghway-1.347287

BRT is increasingly a viable option in car dependent Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur is pumping hundreds of new buses every year but they still get stuck in traffic, plus wity limited space for rail options, BRT is practical, especially with Klang Valley population will reach 10 million anytime soon, the MRT and any public transport enhancement will be a necessity.

Currently, two BRT plans have been revealed in Klang Valley.

Sunway BRT line will be completely elevated.



The other, KL-Klang BRT will be at the middle of the main highway between KL and Klang.

Proposed rail connection to Subang airport, the secondary airport in Klang Valley

It is a 8.15 km railway line that extends from the main KTM commuter line towards Subang airport. It is mostly build at level, while the northern stretch of the line will be elevated. When this line is completed, all two airports in Klang Valley, the KLIA and Subang will be connected by rail.

KL-Klang BRT

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is a specialized bus priority category. It is designed to accommodate the high level of demand for public transport by incorporating aspects of mass transit. This essentially means a rail-like service but deployed in a shorter timeframe, using far less resources and done at the fraction of the cost of establishing new rail services.

Main Features:
• Exclusive lanes on the Busway.
• Pre-boarding payment.
• Single system operator for revenues and payments – multiple bus operators with common ticketing.
• Closed/Open system on the Busway and at terminals and stations.
• High capacity buses.



Background
• One of the 11 initiatives under the NKRA-UPT, the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) networks in Greater KL (GKL) initiative is being implemented by the Suruhanjaya Pengangkutan Awam Darat (SPAD).
• SPAD has recognized 12 BRT corridors in Greater KL/Klang Valley Public Transport Master Plan-Draft (2010) under Bus Transformation Plan section.
• KL–Klang Corridor has been identified in KL BRT Report (2011) as one of the potential BRT Corridors and this BRT project is planned to be operational by 2016.



Examples of BRT Worldwide

• Bogota, Colombia


• Guangzhou, China


• Rouen, France


• Jakarta, Indonesia



Benefits of BRT:

• For operators BRT:
- Improves service performance.
- Improves service reliability.
- Improves in operation performance.
- Improve in service ridership.

• For the public:
- Shorter travel time.
- Better reliability and comfort.
- Better coverage and door-to-door service.
- Better bus and station amenities.
- Better lifestyle.
- Improved quality of life.

• For the government:
- A less expensive transit alternative.
- Quicker solution.
- Environmentally friendly.
- Operating flexibility.
- Increase transit ridership in select corridors.

Benefits of KL-Klang BRT:

• For operators:
- Operation speed average @45 kmph. Faster than mixed traffic.
- Frequency of 30 seconds, high capacity @ 14000 pphpd.

• For the public:
- Less delay in traveling with 50% improvement.
- More coverage (90%) & integration with other modes of transport.
- Metro-class stations, accessibility and connectivity.
- Better bus comfort and safety.
- Improved mobility & lifestyle for higher quality of life.

• For the government:
- Cheaper than rail (BRT @ RM25mil/km).
- Can be implemented by 2016, quick transit solution.
- Promotes green environment, urban wellness.
- Phased construction & staging, minimum service disruption.

BRT Hybrid Operation System
• Along Kl-Klang BRT corridors, 27 BRT stations are being planned.
• KL-Klang BRT corridor will adopt BRT hybrid operational system, applying both direct service and trunk-and-feeder system.


BRT Impact Assessment
• Do nothing is not an option. Less roads and more transit is the way forward.
• To curtail the increase in congestion along Federal Highway due to increased population in future years, by providing faster, safer, more comfortable, affordable and attractive public transport option.
• While BRT helps to manage traffic conditions (by implementing “push & pull” factors), it also helps the economy by reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emission and also minimizing travel time hence maximizing productivity.

BRT is cheap, and quicker to implement, but for heavy corridor between Klang and KL, I would rather see a rail/tram infrastructure. Or at least built in some contingency for future upgrade to tram.

See Perth public transport (Mandurah line and Joondalup Line), where the train tracks are laid in the median of the highway, and the train stations are located at the interchange with feeder bus connectivity.

If train is too expensive, then why not consider tram option? cheaper and has higher capacity than BRT.

Using example from transperth, the SPAD should consider utilizing the median in Federal highway for the train, and the existing KTM line as freight spur line. This will should be the same for the LDP and this definately will reduce the congestion at these 2 highways.

I believe the BRT is selected because is cheaper and easier to implement. I also like trams, but I think building tram will take more time, then the construction will cause more jam on the already jam federal highway.

I was also impresed with the train line in the median of the highway in Perth but I believed the highway and traicks were built concurrently or were planned together from the beginning. The Federal Highway is an old freeway, with bottlnecks and chokepoint, building a median railway line at the middle will be a cumbersome process.

As for the highways, I think the BET should be expanded, it unlilely that the tolledways concession holders will allow trams or any rail system on their highways competing with their tollways, plus I am sure compensating them to build the train or tram will be what we say choking blood in Malay.

Anyway, the BRT on the federal highway should be sufficient if implemented carefully. Really cant wait for the Sunway and FedWay BRT to be complete, coz I am really used to taking bus.

Rather than tram/train, I always think why not monorail along the the federal highway.
