The West Loop has just opened (officially?) a day before the youtube published date.

Top speed is only 70 km/h. The older/established East Loop does not appear to run any faster.

They don't seem to run at 70 km/h. Perhaps my sense of speed is warped somehow.

The absolute top/limit speed - not suggesting that it hit 70km/h at anytime in the video. I think you're just fine.

They never. It's Singapore. Trains run very slowly.

Heavily delayed. 2019 or 2020.

Quote:
The Taipa section was originally slated to start operating next year. (edit: 2016)
Quote:
Mr Rosário conceded the delays to the Taipa section were caused by a setback in the building of a rail depot on Taipa. The government has already terminated the contract with the company originally hired to do the work and is seeking a new contractor.

Light Rapid Transit : Gov’t admits no idea of passenger numbers, journey fares
January 6, 2017
Macau Daily Times Excerpt

With the Taipa Line of the Macau Light Rapid Transit (LRT) project planned for a 2019 launch, local transport authorities have admitted that they have no estimates for ticket fares, nor do they have projections for the number of passengers expected to use the service on a daily basis.

The Transportation Infrastructure Office (GIT) announced that it is conducting studies on ticket pricing, the results of which will be announced closer to the launch date.

“The government is conducting relevant studies and preliminary works on the LRT ticket pricing. To formulate future policies, the government will carefully consider various factors including social and economic benefits, public affordability [and] system operating costs,” said the GIT in a statement emailed to the Times. “Relevant progress will be announced in due course.”

Early government projections claimed that the system could accommodate a maximum of 7,800 passengers per hour per direction across both lines.

However, as the Taipa Line took priority over the Macau Peninsula Line, the GIT said “the government will further study and assess the passenger flow for the project.”

The GIT refused to comment on whether project developers had forecasted an average number of commuters per hour. A GIT representative said the only passenger assessment conducted to date was of the system’s expected maximum capacity.

“At the very beginning of the LRT project development, the project consultant carried out relevant research on capacity of the LRT system. According to the assessment at that time, the LRT will operate 19 hours a day with the maximum capacity of 7,800 passengers per hour, per direction. Based on the assessment result, the government then carried out the procurement of rolling stock and systems and the construction works,” explained the GIT.

If the LRT operates as expected – for 19 hours a day, with a total capacity of up to 15,600 passengers per hour – the light rail infrastructure would be able to accommodate almost 300,000 passengers daily.

However, Macau’s small land mass and abundance of alternative transportation options means that the willingness of residents and non-resident workers to use the LRT will depend on ticket pricing, relative convenience and journey length, among other factors.

Government to initiate preparation for LRT
Friday, February 3, 2017
Macau Daily Times Excerpt

Transportation Infrastructure Office director Ho Cheong Kei has stated, during a TDM radio show, that the government will initiate preparatory work for the operation of the city’s Light Rapid Transit (LRT) this year.

Ho explained that this preparation will include establishing consultation works regarding legal matters connected to the LRT and assembling the companies involved in the LRT.

Overall, the government’s focus for this year is to install train system facilities and to construct an LRT depot.

“I believe we can accomplish our goal of beginning operation of the LRT Taipa section in 2019,” said Ho. According to him, four companies have been engaged in construction work without issues since last September, when the depot project restarted.

Ho revealed that if the construction contractors can finish projects on time or ahead of schedule, the government will grant them 8 percent of their contract budgets as a bonus.

In addition, Ho noted that the inauguration of the LRT in 2019 only concerns the Taipa section. The authority will initiate plans for the section connecting to Barra this year.

The 9.3 kilometers of trestle and 11 stations in Taipa are all connected, Ho said, adding that the main construction of the LRT Taipa section is basically complete.

Light rail chief to be hired from abroad
Macau Daily Times Excerpt
February 14, 2017

A Transportation Infrastructure Office (GIT) representative acknowledged that at the moment there are no local people with the needed skills to run the Macau Light Rapid Transit (LRT) project. “The model of the LRT is a novelty for Macau and in regards to the implementation of the project, Macau lacks seasoned professionals to manage the LRT project. Consequently we are thinking about hiring someone from outside with experience in operating light rail projects,” said GIT’s deputy director, Ng Keng Chung yesterday during a press conference held at the Transport Bureau (DSAT).

GIT organized a meeting with local journalists to present the law draft that will serve as a basis for the operations of the future LRT Company which entered public consultation yesterday.

The bill proposes that the LRT be funded by a publicly-owned company. “The government will create a company which is integrally publicly owned to be able to run the LRT. We are not going to include any funding from abroad or from private entities,” Ng Keng Chung explained.

According to Ng, the basis of the decision for creating a publicly owned company was the fact that “outsourcing” a private company with the needed experience to run the transport system “could lack in flexibility on the management of the LRT.” The government felt that its power to supervise in case of a formal concession “could be compromised,” since the company will run autonomously and will be responsible for expenditure and income.

When questioned on the constitution of such a company and when it would be created, Ng did not reply in concrete terms, instead noting that the bill currently under public consultation only defines the guidelines of each party, namely the government and managing company. “For the time being, that’s what we are doing. We haven’t yet stepped to the creation of the company,” he added.

Ng also noted that although it was assumed that no people with the required skills to run the LRT are in Macau at the moment, the government hopes to have local people with capacity to manage the LRT system in a short period of time. Thus, the need to train local staff could be one of the conditions stated clearly in the the contract with the management company.

The government will “delegate competences on this company to run the daily operations of the LRT,” Ng said, adding that the government will also inspect whether or not the company is fulfilling its duties.

In response to a question on when such a law could be delivered to the Legislative Assembly (AL) to be discussed and approved, Ng said: “We expect that with the collection of these opinions we should be able to perfect and improve this first draft into the final law draft to be presented to the AL. Presumably we expect to finish the writing of this law draft within this year.”

MOP1 BILLION IN 2016
SECRETARY ROSÁRIO SAYS LIGHT RAIL BUDGET IS AS FORECAST
Apr. 12, 2017
Macau Daily Times

In 2016, the government spent MOP1 billion on the Macau Light Rail Transit (LRT) project bringing the bill to a total of MOP9.2 billion, the Secretary for Transport and Public Works, Raimundo do Rosário, said yesterday at a meeting of the Legislative Assembly Follow-up Committee on Land and Public Concession Affairs.

After the meeting, the president of the Committee, lawmaker Ho Ion Sang, informed the media that “the government told us that the cost [of the LRT project] is according to the forecast.” Back in 2011, Rosario estimated the budget for the first phase of the project, which includes the Taipa line and the connection to the transport hub in Barra, to amount to MOP11 billion.

Rosário reassured that the Taipa section will be running in 2019 and reported that the Transportation Infrastructure Office will be extinct in 2018.
