All Systems Go For Synergised Public Transport System - Tee Keat
July 28, 2009 19:35 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, July 28 (Bernama) -- The government is forging ahead with plans to create a synergised public transport service as part of an ambitious bid to achieve a 70:30 ratio of private to public vehicles by next year, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said.

In an interview with the Oxford Business Group (OBG), a global publishing, research and consultancy firm, he said the aim was to increase capacity and connectivity within the public transport sector, with particular emphasis on elevating the railway presence in the country.

Ong said that at the core of the plans were the intercity and commuter services of the main rail operator, Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB), with the construction of major electrified double-track projects as a priority.

He explained that to ensure that KTMB could handle the ever-increasing number of passengers passing through the Klang Valley, the government had allocated RM200 million to procure 10 sets of electric multiple units.

"A significant number of infrastructure projects are simultaneously making their way off the drawing board, which will play a key part in creating the integrated public transport service.

"Kuala Lumpur City Hall, RapidKL, and the National Infrastructure Company are building infrastructure such as aerobridges, covered walkways, escalators, lifts and access roads to major light rail stations, monorails, express rail links and KTMB commuter lines," he said.

While the government is making a significant investment in rail transport, Ong said, the aviation and maritime sectors were also benefiting from numerous projects which had been signed off under the Ninth Malaysia Plan (9MP).

He said the ministry was overseeing a total of 269 projects across the sectors amounting to around RM15.3 billion, adding that most of the projects should be completed by next year.

"A few projects will be carried over to the 10th Malaysia Plan, such as the double-tracking project from Ipoh to Padang Besar and from Seremban to Gemas, which are expected to be completed in 2013 and 2012, respectively," he added.

Ong said he expected a far-reaching national transport policy to be put together as part of the overhaul earmarked for the public transport system.

The policy would be formulated by the National Public Transportation Commission (NPTC), which was set up to regulate land-based public transport, he said.

Its scope would extend from aspects of resource planning to regulating competition within sectors and various areas of enforcement such as road worthiness and public safety, he added.

Gemas-Johor Baru rail job yet to be awarded to firm
By Chuah Bee Kim Published: 2009/08/19

MALAYSIA has yet to decide whether it will appoint a Chinese company to lay the double-track railway between Gemas and Johor Baru.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said the process of appointing a company to build the 197km railway, costing about RM7.5 billion, had not reached the final stage.

However, it is learnt that the Economic Planning Unit in the Prime Minister's Department had met with its Chinese counterpart to hold talks on the project.

"If the project is indeed to be given to a Chinese company, then it will be up to the Chinese government to appoint a contractor to helm the project," Ong told reporters after the opening of a school in Setia Eco Gardens, Pulai, by Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman yesterday.

He declined to disclose further details, saying only that talks between the Malaysian and Chinese governments on the project are on a government-to-government basis.

In June, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak spoke of the possibility of allowing a Chinese company to lay the double-track railway after meeting Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao during the signing of the Joint Action Plan on Strategic Cooperation to enhance ties.

In a reciprocal gesture, China expressed its readiness to consider setting aside a portion of the US$10 billion (RM35 billion) infrastructure fund allocated for Asean countries for the project.

The proposed railway, which includes plans to build overhead bridges or crossings for motorists at several locations, will enable Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd to extend its electrified commuter train service to Johor from Seremban.

Gemas-JB rail project to China consortium
Cabinet endorsed move after PM’s trip
Ayu Musa Kamal Friday, August 21st, 2009 06:47:00

THE RM7.5 billion double-track railway from Gemas to Johor Baru is set to be awarded to China’s State consortium China Railway Engineering Corporation and China Railway Telecommunication Centre (CRET), sources familiar with the project told Malay Mail.

The decision to re-award the project to CRET was endorsed by the Cabinet on June 17, about two weeks after Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s return from his official visit to China.

“As far as the Chinese government is concerned, that is the present status of the project,” a source said.

Two letters of intent (LOI) had been issued to CRET in the last eight years to undertake the then Seremban-JB package. The first LOI was in August 2001 and the second in August 2002.

The LOI dated Aug 9, 2001, sent to the president of CRET Consortium, stated that the government of Malaysia has appointed CRET to work as a consortium with Sino-Ma Rail Resources Consortium Sdn Bhd to design, construct, test, commission, and guarantee the double tracking of existing Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd’s main line between Seremban and Johor Baru.

The other LOI, dated Aug 7, 2002, that was also sent to the president of CRET Consortium, had the same contents, with a consortium comprising DRB Hicom Bhd and Emrail Sdn Bhd as the main contractors.

It was also stated that CRET Consortium will own 70 per cent value of works on the basis that it will enter into a commercial arrangement with Sino-Ma Rail Resources.

On June 5, upon his return from China, Najib spoke of the success of the delegation. One of the matters
discussed was the possibility of allowing a Chinese company to lay the double tracks between Gemas and JB.

The source told Malay Mail that up till now the Cabinet had not been known or reported to have wavered from its June 17 decision.

However, in a newspaper report on Wednesday, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat was reported
to have said in Johor Baru that the Chinese government had not appointed the contractor and that raised concerns.

Ong said the government was still waiting for approval from the Chinese government as to which company would undertake the project.

“It is up to the Chinese government to choose the firm for the project and we will make the announcement
once we receive the name,” he had said.

CRET is a consortium involving two State companies, China Railway Engineering Corporation and China Railway Telecommunication Centre.
