I don't really know all the locations, however, one of the crossing seen in that video, is in Singapore.....

I don't know the speed...about track removal....well in the case of Rawang-Ipoh project, when the double tracking works being done, the old track removed and most likely, they will bury the former railway....

MMC: Electrification Job Reduction Will Not Affect Consortium's Bottomline


KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 26 (Bernama) -- The reduction in electrification job for the Butterworth to Padang Besar portion of the double-tracking railway project will not affect the bottomline of the Gamuda Bhd-MMC Corp Bhd consortium.

MMC chief executive officer, Hasni Harun, said MMC has not received a request from the government but there was a possibility it may want to reduce the scope of work.

"We still have to discuss with the government because there are other implications to the reduction in the scope of work," he said.

He was speaking to reporters after signing a lease agreement between MMC's unit, Seaport World Wide Sdn Bhd (SWW) and Netherlands-based Vitol Terminal BV's entity, ATT Tanjung Bin Sdn Bhd (ATT) here Friday.

Under the terms of the agreement, SWW would lease approximately 48 hectares at the rate of RM20 per sq ft (for 30 years) to ATT.

Hasni, however, said there would be no reduction in the scope of work for Ipoh-Butterworth portion.

"The job scope for Butterworth to Padang Besar was reduced because the track was mainly for cargo. We are still in discussions and has not finalised anything," he said.

He said the reduction in scope of work reduce the contract value a bit in terms of the amount of the contract.

"However, it will not be so much that it will affect the bottomline of the consortium," he said.

Market talks had it that the reduction in work scope may reduce the contract value from RM12.49 billion to RM10.7 bilion.

The project is being carried out by the consortium on 50:50 basis.

On the government's move to scrap the windfall profit levy on independent power producers, Hasni said the move was good for Malakoff bonds.

He said the company would expand Malakoff business domestically and abroad.

"We are looking at few opportunities. We are looking seriously to expand our power business especially on the generation in Saudi Arabia as well in United Arab Emirates," he said.

26-09-2008: Encorp bags RM130.8m Ircon contract

Email us your feedback at [email protected]

KUALA LUMPUR: Encorp Bhd has bagged a RM130.79 million contract from Ircon International Ltd of India to build station buildings for the electrified double rail track project between Seremban and Gemas.

Encorp said yesterday it had received a letter of acceptance from Ircon for the construction and commissioning of the stations, along with the associated structures and services, including site clearance, civil and structural works, platforms and mechanical and engineering works.

It said the construction period was 22 months.

Encorp said the award of the portion of the rail project followed a string of favourable news for the company, which was most recognised for developing 10,000 units of teachers’ housing project for the government.

The company made a financial turnaround in 2007 with a pre-tax profit of RM111.32 million at the end of 2007 from a loss of RM119.81 million in 2006. Encorp said it had received a RAM upgrade of its bonds in July from A1(s) to AA2(s) with an outlook revised from positive to stable.

Last month, it was awarded a contract by the Ministry of Education to construct, upgrade and refurbish schools and hostels in Sarawak for a contract sum of RM150 million.

Kereta api berkembar KL-Ipoh operasi 1 Disember
Oleh Che Wan Badrul Alias
[email protected]

Sarbini Tijan



KUALA LUMPUR: Khidmat tren penumpang antara bandar menghubungkan Kuala Lumpur-Ipoh menggunakan laluan kereta api berkembar dengan kekerapan 10 perjalanan setiap hari, akan mula beroperasi 1 Disember ini.

Perkhidmatan secara shuttle itu dijangka mampu membawa 3,040 penumpang setiap hari dengan masa perjalanan antara kedua-dua bandar raya berkenaan boleh dikurangkan kepada dua jam lima puluh minit.

Bagaimanapun, khidmat itu hanya sementara sebelum digantikan Set Kereta Api Elektrik (ETS) yang dijangka mula digunakan pada 2010.



Pengurus Besar Unit Perniagaan Strategik Perkhidmatan Antara Bandar Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB), Sarbini Tijan, berkata buat permulaan lima gerabak penumpang iaitu tiga gerabak untuk kelas dua dan dua kelas ekonomi akan digunakan untuk setiap perjalanan.

Katanya, tren itu akan berhenti di lima perhentian iaitu Batu Gajah, Kampar, Tapah Road, Sungkai dan Tanjung Malim, manakala dua lagi iaitu Sungai Buloh dan Kuala Lumpur lama, masih dalam kajian.

"Jika semuanya berjalan lancar, kita akan mulakan sebelum Hari Raya Haji sebagai promosi perkhidmatan baru kami sebelum menggunakan ETS, sama seperti Komuter tetapi dengan kekerapan lebih tinggi.

"Apabila ETS beroperasi di laluan baru itu nanti, perkhidmatannya jauh lebih efektif berbanding tren sedia ada kerana ia lebih panjang, mempunyai enam gerabak dan lebih laju iaitu sehingga 140 kilometer sejam (km/j) berbanding had laju sekarang 120 km/j," katanya kepada Berita Harian.

Sarbini berkata, kos bagi menyiapkan projek itu diambil daripada peruntukkan sedia ada.

Katanya, bagi memperkenalkan perkhidmatan baru kepada pengguna, pihaknya perlu menyegerakan pembukaan laluan itu supaya ia bersedia digunakan sebelum Aidiladha, Krismas dan cuti sekolah akhir tahun ketika jumlah penumpang dijangka meningkat.

Beliau berkata, berbanding tren antara bandar yang lain, bagi laluan Kuala Lumpur-Ipoh, KTMB tidak akan membenarkan penumpang untuk berdiri sekiranya jumlah kerusi tidak mencukupi kerana tempoh perjalanan yang jauh.

Well, the article is in Malay, and this is world forum, i will translate for international forumers, so that they can understand it...

- From the 1st of December, there will be a shuttle service from Kuala Lumpur to Ipoh using the electrified double track, with frequency of 10 trips a day

- The shuttle service is expected to be able to carry about 3,040 passengers a day with the journey time to be reduced to 2 hours and 50 minutes

- However, the shuttle service will be temporary as it will be replaced by Electric Train Set (ETS) in 2010

- According to the Intercity Services Strategic Business Unit General Manager, initially, five passenger coaches, which are 3 coaches for second class and 2 coaches for economy class, will be used for each trip

- The train will stop at five stations, which are Batu Gajah, Kampar, Tapah Road, Sungkai and Tanjung Malim, while two more, which are Sungai Buloh and old Kuala Lumpur station, are still under consideration

- According to him, if everything goes well, it will commence before Hari Raya Haji as a promotion for the new service before using ETS, which is same as Komuter service, but with higher frequency

- According to him, when the ETS operates at the new track later, its service will be more effective than existing trains because it will be longer, has six cars long and faster, which is up to 140 km/h compared to the current limit of 120 km/h

- According to him, to introduce the new service to consumers, they will have to expedite the opening of the new line to make it ready for service before Aidiladha, Christmas and end-of-the-year school holiday when the number of passengers is expected to rise

- Compared to the other intercity train services, for the Kuala Lumpur-Ipoh route, KTMB will not allow passengers to stand when the seats are not enough, because of the long journey distance...

KL- Butterworth is about 390 km, so a 3 hours journey (9 hours previously), should gives an average speed of 130 km/h...

While Ipoh-Butterworth is about 180 km, so a 1.5 hours journey (4 hours previously), should gives an average speed of 120 km/h...
