Malaysia to build second Klang Valley metro line
Tuesday, October 14, 2014



WORK on the Klang Valley MRT 2 project, a 56km line from Selayang via Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya, could start next year following an announcement by Malaysian prime minister Mr Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak during last week's 2015 budget unveiling

The project is expected to cost Ringgits 23bn ($US 7.08bn) and take five years to complete, inclusive of preparation work, land acquisition and moving utilities.

However, Razak's announcement that the line would run to Selayang rather than Sungai Buloh as initially thought has caused some to question whether an additional depot is required. A 65 hectare depot for Line 1 is currently under construction adjacent to Rubber Research Institute station which was expected to have sufficient capacity for Line 1's fleet of approximately 50 trains and the 50 required trains for Line 2

Seems no proper announement on LRT3.

The Klang Valley will get a thiird LRT line from the Bandar Utama suburb up until the port city of Klang. Additional info
-passes through the cities of Subang Jaya, Shah Alam and Klang.
-integrated with the MRT Line 1 at Bandar Utama
-it will be 35km long
-possibly uses the same Bombardier ART technology like the Kelana Jaya Line.
-the new line is expected to benefit 350,000 commuters.
-Cost will be RM9 billion($3 billion) excluding land acquisition cost.
-construction expected to begin at end of 2015.

KUALA LUMPUR: CONSTRUCTION on the much-anticipated third light rail transit (LRT3) line linking Bandar Utama and Klang is expected to begin by the end of next year.

Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) chief executive officer Mohd Nur Ismal Mohamed Kamal said the commission was in the midst of approving the feasibility study on the route alignment proposed by Prasarana Malaysia Bhd.

More than 300,000 commuters are expected to benefit from this line.

“We (SPAD) are refining the alignment of the 36km-long project before we submit it to the railway scheme application soon.

“Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, who is also the finance minister, will take a look at it and give the conditional approval before we can release it for public display,” he told the New Straits Times yesterday.

Nur Ismal said the public could give their suggestions and comments on the proposed alignment during the three-month display period before it was submitted for the final railway scheme application.

“We will refine the plan for the proposed LRT3, including the alignment, before implementing the initiative.”

Nur said the RM9 billion project would begin from the Bandar Utama Mass Rapid Transit station, which was under construction.

“The line will go on to Tropicana before cutting across Hicom-Glenmarie Industrial Park, heading for Shah Alam via Section 13 near the Shah Alam Stadium, Universiti Teknologi Mara in Section 2 and i-City in Section 7.

“The train will then travel down Bukit Raja to the Klang KTM Komuter station before heading further south for Bukit Tinggi and Johan Setia,” he said, adding that there would be 26 stations in the route. He said there would be 10 park-and-ride stations and four integrated stations, which would connect the MRT, LRT Kelana Jaya line, RapidKL’s Bus Rapid Transit and Komuter services.

LRT3 will be developed on a PDP concept and the tender for this would be called within the next one to three months, said Shahril.

Another noteworthy project is the Bus Rapid Transit line between Kuala Lumpur and Klang. This will be the third public transort route along this highly populated corridor in addition to the KTM Komuter train service and the upcoming LRT3.

Additional info
-length is 45km
-it will connect Brickfields to Klang along the Federal Highway
-rendering indicate the segregated bus lanes will be on the median of the federal highway.
-it is indicated that it will not use special high floor buses asused in Trajakarta or Bogota but uses normal low floor buses currently used by RapidKL or conventional buses.
-RapidKL is expected to be the main bus company using the BRT lane but it is indicated that any bus companies/consortium can use the BRT lane.
-expected completion date is 2017.
-forecasted cost is RM1 billion($330 million).

Bus Rapid Transit project to start in 2Q2015

SURUHANJAYA PENGANGKUTAN AWAM DARAT (SPAD), or the Land Public Transport Commission, is currently ironing out the details of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project.

SPAD CEO Mohd Nur Ismal Mohamed Kamal says the pre-engineering design of the BRT project has been completed and the construction works are expected to start in the second quarter of next year.

However, SPAD has not finalised the operational model of the BRT, which is aimed at easing traffic congestion along the Federal Highway.

“We are looking at the commercial aspects right now, whether it will be on a concession basis, and if so, who will be the owner of the concession,” Nur Ismal tells The Edge.

According to him, SPAD is also mulling the model, under which the bus operators will be consolidated into a consortium and jointly run the operations, ā la the BRT in Bogota, Colombia.

“What is important is to have someone manage the services because the system needs to be maintained so that there is good traffic flow and road safety is ensured,” says Nur Ismal.

He declines to reveal the project cost, saying it would not be as big as the RM30 billion required for the Mass Rapid Transit project.

The proposed BRT project will see the building of special lanes for buses that ply the “Central Market (Pasar Seni) to Klang town” route. It will stretch 36km along the Federal Highway. Construction is expected to take 21/2 years, explains Nur Ismal.

The BRT project involves minimal land acquisition as it will mostly be widening parts of the Federal Highway and constructing a short elevated stretch.

“We are working on a total [public] bus transformation initiative. So, this is going to be an exciting project,” says Nur Ismal.

Phase 1 comprises the stretch from Batu Tiga, Shah Alam to Central Market in Kuala Lumpur. “The targeted travel time is 20 minutes,” he explains.

According to him, the BRT project will fall under the supervision of the Ministry of Works. SPAD’s job is to look into the design and build contract, adds Nur Ismal.

Noting that the BRT lanes are dedicated to buses only, gantries will be built to keep private vehicles out. “The beauty of it is that while we will have specialised services under BRT, we also allow other buses to use the lanes,” says Nur Ismal.

He adds: “Hopefully, by 2020, the [transportation] landscape will be totally different, as compared to now, where the default choice is to use your own car or motorcycle.”
