On the fast track to Ipoh
Tuesday December 15, 2009
By SARBAN SINGH

SEREMBAN: Rail commuters will be able to travel from here to Ipoh in less than three hours when Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) introduces its inter-city express train service (ETS) from April 1.

The premium service, which will among others have wi-fi services, will only stop at major stations along the way.

A source said KTMB had already received a new set of the trains from South Korea and trial runs were expected to begin in the coming weeks.

“Since the train has a maximum speed of 120kph and is built based on the latest technology, commuters will be able to get from one point to another quicker,” he said.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat is scheduled to launch the service in Kuala Lumpur today.

The source said KTMB would get four more train sets by February.

“Each train will have six coaches which can accommodate some 300 sitting passengers,” he said.

KTMB introduced the normal Kuala Lumpur-Ipoh shuttle service beginning December last year. The journey between Kuala Lumpur and Ipoh takes about three hours.

However, the new train set has a diesel-run locomotive with inter-city coaches.

It is understood that the ETS will, among others, stop at the Nilai/KLIA, Bandar Tasek Selatan, KL Sentral, Tg Malim, Tapah, Kampar and Batu Gajah stations.

With the ETS, the travelling time from Seremban to Kuala Lumpur will be 45 minutes while the KL-Ipoh route will take about two hours and 10 minutes.

The source said the new train set will look like an upgraded version of the present KTM Komuter trains.

“It will have comfortable seats and brightly lit coaches.

“The seats will also be spacious,” he said.

The source said since it was a premium service, commuters must be prepared to pay more to travel on the train.

“This is a departure from the old mode of rail travel.

“We want commuters to feel even more comfortable and to be able to do work while in the train,” he said, adding that the proposed fare had yet to be approved by the Transport Ministry.

It is understood that the service will begin at 5am with the last being at 10pm at two-hour intervals.

KL-Ipoh train service likely to see 20,000 more passengers per month
Tuesday December 15, 2009

More passengers likely for KL-Ipoh route with electric trains
KUALA LUMPUR: The number of passengers using the express train services between Kuala Lumpur and Ipoh is expected to go up by between 10,000 and 20,000 per month with the use of electric trains, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat.

Ong said the train sets which travelled at a maximum speed of 140kph would cut the travelling time between the two cities from the current two hours and 50 minutes to less than two hours.

“The first train has been delivered and four more are expected to be operational from April next year,” he told a press conference after the launching ceremony for the first train here yesterday.

Currently, he said the ridership for the shuttle service between Kuala Lumpur and Ipoh, using diesel trains, was 50,000 a month.

The number is expected to increase to 60,000 to 70,000 per month after the introduction of the electric trains.

Ong said the five train sets with six coaches each cost a total of RM240mil.

They would be used to provide train services between Ipoh and Seremban with an estimated total travel time of below three hours.

On public transport in the Klang Valley, Ong said 12% of commuters were now using public transport.

He said the percentage is expected to grow to 25% by 2012.

“Currently, 240,000 people are using public transport during 7am to 9am daily and the figure will rise to 600,000 people by 2012,” he said.

Earlier in his speech, KTM Bhd chairman Datuk Seri Mohd Zin Mohamed said the electric trains which were equipped with closed-circuit television facilities, would also allow passengers to recharge their laptops, mobile phones and iPods on board.

“There will also be disabled-friendly toilets,” he said.

600,000 Target For Public Transport Ridership In Klang Valley By End 2012
December 17, 2009 12:29 PM
By Alan Ting

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 17 (Bernama) -- The government is targeting a ridership of 600,000 people for public transport services in the Klang Valley by the end of 2012 under the National Key Result Areas (NKRA) initiatives, says Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat.

Currently, there is a ridership of about 240,000 for public transport in the Klang Valley, estimated to represent some 10 to 12 per cent of the total population in the country's busiest area.

The NKRA initiatives were launched in July this year by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak as part of the Government Transformation Programme (GTP) leading towards achieving Vision 2020 and improving government delivery to the people.

"Under the NKRA for public transport, we are targeting to increase it to 25 per cent of the total population in the area or 600,000 ridership, which is 2.5 times from the current level. It's a tall order for us but we are working hard to achieve our target," Ong told Bernama.

He revealed that his ministry was comprehensively addressing several problems related to public transport in the Klang Valley based on five key strategies.

They include debottlenecking public transport capacity, stimulating demand via "pull approaches", reducing heavy vehicle congestion in the central business district (CBD), restructuring regulations for long-term sustainability and having future demand management through 'push approaches".

Ong also said that a Land Public Transport Authority would be established and operational by the end of next year as a single industry "captain" to coordinate efforts across the entire public transport system.

"This is currently lacking, with 12 ministries and various agencies involved in different aspects across the entire public transport system," he said.

Ong said the current public transport services in the Klang Valley had already been filled to the brim, particularly rail services (KTM Komuter, RapidKL, LRT and Monorail).

Such a pressing situation would demand that there was a need to create space for an additional 360,000 people of the population to migrate to public transport from private vehicles in the Klang Valley, he explained.

"Based on our analysis, from the 360,000 ridership, 58 per cent or 207,000 will come from rail and 42 per cent or 153,000 will come from buses. The biggest contributors will come from rail, with KTM Komuter contributing around 95,000 passengers, Kelana Jaya LRT line 62,000 and Ampang LRT line 33,000," he said.

"In order to debottleneck the capacity of a system already at its limit, the capacity on the KTM Komuter and LRT lines will be increased by 1.7 times to four times, depending on specific lines," he said.

Ong said the service of new four-car trainsets on the Kelana Jaya LRT line, the most congested rail line in the Klang Valley, would be introduced by the end of this month, thus enhancing the current two-car trainsets and providing additional capacity to carry more passengers.

"With this, we hope to reduce the waiting time from three minutes to 2.5 minutes, running a mixed fleet of two-car and four-car trainsets. With these initiatives, we expect to triple the capacity, thus enabling ridership during the morning peak period to increase from the current level of 34,000 to 98,000 when fully deployed," he said.

Ong said KTM Berhad had also bought five units of Electric Train Sets (ETS) to serve the intercity Ipoh-KL-Seremban route by April next year.

"However, during peak hours, some of these ETS units will be utilised for the KTM Komuter service. One unit has already arrived and others are expected to arrive before April next year," he said.

Ong said the Bus Expressway Transit (BET) services on four corridors in the Klang Valley would also be launched by the first quarter of next year.

The four corridors represent the four under-utilised highways in the Klang Valley where commuters will enjoy a 55 per cent reduction in the average point-to-point journey times.

Apart from that, a dedicated right-of-way (special lane) for buses across 12 major corridors in the Klang Valley will be introduced. These 12 corridors will in total carry 35,000 to 50,000 passengers during the morning peak hours or between six and nine per cent of the total public transport ridership by 2012.

"The size of the existing bus fleet will be increased by 850 buses, close to doubling the number of buses operated by RapidKL today. This will improve services on current routes and provide services to 53 new routes in areas currently unserved," he added.

He said that in order to draw people to public transport, the key initiatives would include introducing an integrated ticketing platform and fare structure under the "1Ticket, 1Seamless Journey" concept across all 16 operators in the Klang Valley.

"On top of that, 6,800 new parking spaces across 14 key rail stations outside the urban core areas would be added, besides enhancing feeder services into rail stations as well as upgrading high traffic stations and terminals," he said.

To cut down the number of vehicles in the Central Business District (CBD), three major integrated transport terminals (ITTs) outside the city core, such as Bandar Tasik Selatan (South), Gombak (East) and Sungai Buloh (North), will be created.

The ITT Bandar Tasik Selatan is already under construction while the ITT Gombak, which will be built on a fast-track basis, is expected to be ready by the end of 2010. A third ITT, which may be located in Sungai Buloh, will serve north-bound inter-city express buses beyond 2012.

The south and east ITTs will enable the authorities to divert 750 inter-city buses from the south of Peninsular Malaysia and the east coast from the city centre every day.

Within the city centre, Ong said, there would be two types of public transport hubs -- the intracity terminal hubs at Pasarama Kota, Plaza Rakyat and Pudu, to facilitate the flow of traffic from the suburbs into the city and 14 "Hentian Akhir Bandar" (HAB) or City Final Terminals -- which will facilitate the movement of passengers and public transport vehicles within the city centre to reduce congestion.

Ong also said that in order to manage the demand through the push strategy, aggressive "push" initiatives would be introduced to increase the attractiveness of public transport compared to private vehicles.

"The majority of the initiatives will take time to materialise but in the short term, the public can expect some improvements following introduction of some initiatives which have already been introduced and are to be introduced," he said.

Among them are the realignment of RapidKL bus routes to minimise transfers, launched in October this year, and the reduction of the KTM Komuter waiting time from 20 minutes to 15 minutes through optimising the deployment of trainsets last month.

The new EMU looks allright.

Anymore specs on it? how many axles driven, type of traction package..etc?

This one is configured for intercity journeys. Will there be commuter versions?

It is actually not much different from the current EMUs that KTMB operate, the current EMUs can even reach 140kph easily.

I believe the future EMUs for the commuter will look similar to the new ETS.

The maximum speed for EMUs are about 120 km/h...

Whereas for the recent ETS (Hyundai Rotem), the top speed is 140 km/h for commercial service, the design is about 160 km/h...

RM5mil payout to speed up double-track project in Penang
By MANJIT KAUR Tuesday January 5, 2010

BUKIT MERTAJAM: The more than RM5mil ex-gratia payout to 134 squatters affected by the Ipoh-Padang Besar Electrified Double-Track Project in Penang will help expedite the project.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said development of the 329km project was expected to be at 47.23% as at November last year but currently was at 34.38%. He said that meant there was a 12.85% delay.

“By giving out RM42,000 ex-gratia payment to each squatter, we are hopeful of expediting progress by a further 5%,” he told a press conference after handing over the cheques to some of the 134 squatters at the KTMB site office here yesterday.

“It depends on how fast we can move on after the land acquisition process. The 2013 deadline is crucial and we can always catch up,” he said.

“This has been a comprehensive exercise involving the concerted efforts of all quarters, especially the grassroots leaders.”

Also present were KTMB president Dr Aminuddin Adnan and Gamuda Group managing director Datuk Lin Yun Ling. The project, which is expected to be completed by 2013, was awarded to MMC-Gamuda Joint Venture Sdn Bhd.

Ong said a similar exercise would be conducted in Perak and certain parts of Kedah soon.

He added that there might be delays depending on the current scenario.

Lin said the delay was over land acquisition but whether there would be any additional cost was something that had not been looked into yet.

He said land acquisition work was still on-going but the process was coming to an end and hopefully would be over in the next two to three months.

“There is still some land acquisition matters over in Perak, Kedah and even in Penang for the container yard. These issues will be resolved in the coming months and only then we will know the full extent of the delay,” he said.
