LRT project to start in early 2019
CM confident state to have rail transport again soon, feasibility studies to be done in a year’s time
November 11, 2017, Saturday Peter Sibon

Quote:
KUCHING: Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg is optimistic the proposed light rail transit (LRT) project could be implemented as early as 2019 after feasibility studies are completed.

He said under the state Budget 2018, which he tabled on Wednesday, there’s an allocation to carry out the studies on the implementation of the LRT project which are expected to take a year to complete.

“We can start the LRT project after the feasibility studies are done. We can start the project by 2019,” he told members of the media on the sidelines of the DUN sitting here yesterday.

He said among others, the feasibility studies would include the routes which it would take, soil conditions and the power it would be using.

The LRT project is the brainchild of Abang Johari who has vowed that the project will take off by 2020.

In a message during his 100th day in office on April 22, Abang Johari said he was keen to implement the LRT which would be done by Sarawak Economic Development Corporation (SEDC).

Abang Johari, who is also Minister of Resource Planning and Environment, was confident that the proposed LRT which would run on electric powered-locomotives, would initially link Kuching-Kota Samarahan-Serian.

“If the Brookes could implement our first train service from Kuching to Mile 10 before, we should be able to implement something better than that now. We are moving towards modernisation and we must ensure that our people have a better quality of life with shorter travel time from their homes to their respective work places.”

The chief minister said he preferred the LRT to be powered by electric trains since the state has huge amount of electricity generated by three hydroelectric power (HEP) plants at Batang Ai, Bakun and Murum. The fourth one (Baleh HEP) is expected to generate some 1,400 MW of energy when it is completed in 2025.

SkyGlide is a cabin type of transport that can move upward and downward according to a certain incline level. In, general, the design of the cabin is like an elevator with the finishing of glass panels on all sides. This is to allow visitors to have a clear view of mount Machincang and its surroundings. Currently visitor who wish to visit SkyBridge will have to take a short 10 minutes’ walk through a jungle trail. This short walk is both fun but a bit challenging especially to the elderly and children. However with SkyGlide visitor would have a much faster and convenient way of visiting SkyBridge. With 94 meters of track length, SkyGlide cabin can accommodate up to 12 passengers or 1050 kilogram of load per trip. It takes less than 2 minutes for the cabin to travel from top station to SkyBridge. SkyGlide ticket is sold separately from the standard SkyCab ticket. The ticket is available only from the SkyGlide ticketing counter at our top station. For an additional fee of RM10 for adult and RM7 for children, visitors would be able to use SkyGlide for both your travel and return journey. For the adventurous that might prefer to take a walk to SkyBridge but later would love to try our SkyGlide ride for your return trip back to top station, you can purchase your one way ticket at our mobile counter at SkyBridge.
