I've long held that using Batu Caves as the starting point for a East/West line from KL to Kuanatan and linking into the ECL and Kerteh freight line is a solid long term plan (see here) but as far as I know there is no plan for this - though there has been on again off again plans for a branch from the Mentakab (ECL) to Kuantan. However, given the limitations of the ECL, I don't see this being anything more than a freight link-up for the Kerteh line.

As was mentioned, the Titiwangsa mountains are an issue, though if you closely at the topography, there are some useful natural valleys which would reduce the mount of tunnelling required somewhat. From Mentakab to Kuantan, the terrain is mostly gentle again.

Has any provision been made on the upgrade of the Seremban-Gemas stretch to allow for future reinstatement of the Malacca branch line?

Rail project ahead of time
Thursday March 22, 2012
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...098&sec=nation

TAIPING: The Perak stretch of the 329km Ipoh-Padang Besar electrified double-tracking project is expected to be completed six months ahead of schedule.

"To date, the Perak stretch is 89.7% complete," said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha.

Kong said this at the ceremonial handing- over of six flyovers to the state Public Works Department in Kamunting, near here, yesterday.

They are part of 20 flyovers costing RM251mil planned for Perak.

Kong said for the whole project, there would be 65 flyovers spanning over Perak, Penang, Kedah and Perlis, costing a total of more than RM1bil.

At a press confernce later, he said with flyovers to replace level crossings, motorists would be saved from the hassle of waiting for trains to pass.

In KOTA KINABALU, Kong said in a statement that the cabotage policy requiring Malaysian ships to transport domestic cargo was not the reason for higher cost of goods in Sabah.

He said there were other factors that raised the cost of goods here, naming among them cost of storage and port services fees.

He dismissed claims that foreign ships were not allowed to sail into Sabah ports to unload containers after they had unloaded cargo at peninsula ports.

“This claim is wrong. The cabotage policy does not stop foreign ships from docking at any port in Malaysia,” he said, explaining that after a foreign cargo ship docks at Port Klang, it is allowed to go to any Sabah port to unload cargo.

“Such ships can also load cargo and leave for any foreign destination,” he added.

Rail work for east coast
By SARBAN SINGH Wednesday April 25, 2012
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp...&if_height=412

BAHAU: The Transport Ministry will undertake a study to expand the rail double-tracking and electrification project from Gemas to Tumpat after the completion and commissioning of the Padang Rengas-Johor Baru project.

Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said expansion work would be a reality if the study indicated sufficient passenger traffic on the 530km east coast route.

“Although we have not made a decision, I am certain that it is a matter of time before we look at the east coast line. I am also certain that if we improve the rail service, more people will travel by train,” he said after visiting the site for the new Bahau train station near here.

Kong said the priority was to complete the west coast railway double-tracking and electrification project, with the Ipoh-Seremban stretch already completed while the Seremban-Gemas and Ipoh-Padang Besar stretches are due for completion by year-end and the middle of next year respectively.

He said the ministry was now fine-tuning the design for the 200km Gemas-Johor Baru stretch costing between RM7bil to RM8bil, with tenders to be called soon.

He said at present KTM provided six train services along the Singapore-Gemas-Tumpat routes.

“We are also upgrading the Gua Musang, Kuala Krai, Pasir Mas and Tanah Merah stations to keep up with the times,” he said, adding that the Jerantut station was upgraded in 2006.

Kong said his ministry had decided to build a new station in Bahau as the existing one built 70 years ago could no longer serve commuters.

“The station is not only very small but is located along the busy main road which is a flood-prone area. In fact, there are no facilities such as a canteen, parking or even toilets,” he said.

Kong said the new station, expected to cost between RM5mil and RM6mil, will be built some 500m away from the existing station and will have various amenities as well as be disabled-friendly.

“Work on the new station should begin in June and will be completed within 15 months,” he said, adding that the contractor would also have to realign the tracks in the area.

On a separate matter, Kong said the Implementation and Coordination Unit of the Prime Minister's Department has approved a RM716,000 allocation for the construction of a pedestrian bridge over the Seremban-Gemas double-tracking project near Batang Melaka in Gemencheh.

IMHO, rather than building a double track electrified line from Gemas and Tumpat, it would be a much better idea to build an new track that connecting any area to the north of Kuala Lumpur to the East Coast line.

I remember back when I was working in KL, some of my local friends from Pahang or Kelantan said that they would prefer to travel by bus or car instead of train, as the train would take a much circuitous route, and much longer journey time.

‘Ipoh-Padang Besar job about 85pc complete
By OOI TEE CHING Published: 2012/07/27
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

SMOOTH-RUNNING: MMC-Gamuda JV says the RM12.48b electrified double-tracking project is running ahead of schedule

THE Ipoh-Padang Besar electrified double-tracking railway project (EDTP) is about 85 per cent into completion on an overall basis, said MMC-Gamuda Joint Venture Sdn Bhd director (technical) Datuk Mohd Nor Idrus.

When Business Times met up with him here recently, he said the RM12.48 billion project, which runs through Perak, Penang, Kedah and Perlis, was ahead of schedule.

The railway project, which began in January 2008, is expected to be completed by the end of 2014.

While the project is described as the laying and electrification of a 329km-long double track to replace the existing single track that runs from Ipoh to Padang Besar, Mohd Nor explained that the multitude of construction works was a lot more complex.

This, he said, was because the tracks were designed to serve the current and future needs of Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd (KTMB).

There will be new stations, depots, KTM quarters and bridges in addition to the electrification of the railway tracks and automation of the train signalling system.

In keeping the railway route as straight and level as possible, he said numerous bridges were being built. The new railway tracks will also run through tunnels.

“We are building 66 flyovers, nine underpasses and 74 bridges. To curb illegal crossings, we have also been instructed by the government to build 50 motorcycle and pedestrian crossings throughout the railway lines.

“There will be 23 stations, including halts. The seven big stations in Perak, Penang, Kedah and Perlis will have small stations in between them,” he added.

As the EDTP enters its last leg of implementation, the next step is to incorporate a railway signalling system to control traffic flows along the rail tracks and prevent train wagons from colliding.

One of the main objectives of the railway signalling system is to help KTMB migrate its manual signalling and communication system to a computerised one.

Train movements will eventually be directed through remote switches and signals instead of timetables and train orders, with the number one priority being safety.

“The traffic control computer software is designed to be fail-safe, eliminating any conflicting commands that can cause a head-on crash or the trains going off-track,” he said.

Ultimately, KTMB will be kept constantly aware of the position of each train through the control centre. Complex algorithms in the signalling system are also being designed to calculate the halting distance between trains on any kind of track, whether single, double or even triple.


To date, Mohd Nor said system work was about 55 per cent into completion with design, procurement, installation and testing advancing ahead of schedule.

All three divisions of system work; namely electrification, communications and signalling, are progressing smoothly with system vendor Balfour Beatty-Ansaldo Systems working diligently on the project.”

Mohd Nor said the double-tracking and electrification of the Ipoh-Padang Besar stretch was the government’s initiative to continue work already done on the 180km Ipoh-Rawang route. The other completed tracks are Rawang-Seremban (105km); Sentul-Port Klang (45km); and Sentul-Batu Caves (7.5km).

“With double railway tracks, KTM trains will be able to operate in both directions at the same time and that cuts down waiting time,” he said.

For example, the travelling time between Kuala Lumpur and Butterworth will shorten to three hours from the current nine hours.

The project also aims to improve KTM’s earnings by increasing its existing rolling stock and enhancing the efficiency of its cargo wagons through a renewed focus on containerised and long-haul freight transportation.

KTM will be able to offer its corporate clients more frequent services to move bulky commodities like cement, chemicals and rubber products between Penang Port and southern Thailand.

This will significantly boost socio-economic development in rural and suburban areas by enhancing accessibility for tourism and commercial activities, thereby creating direct and indirect employment opportunities for local residents.

Mohd Nor noted that the EDTP sought to reduce over-reliance on road transport with more frequent inter-city travel. Eventually, it is hoped that there will be a reduction in petrol subsidy and a drop in road fatalities due to fewer cars on the road.

The project is also an ideal training ground to produce a new breed of Malaysian engineers.

In a separate interview, MMC-Gamuda Joint Venture senior planning manager Mohd Nizam Daut and tunnel manager Ng Hau Wei shared their experiences.



“Compared with my peers of similar years in the workforce, I am proud that I have been given the opportunity to work on large-scale multi-billion projects in Malaysia such as the EDTP (Ipoh–Padang Besar). It has sharpened my management skills and given me the confidence to take on even bigger projects, locally and internationally,” said Nizam, who has prior experience working on the Ipoh-Rawang line.

Ng, on the other hand, recalled how his tunnelling team had to deal with “live traffic” when building the 3.3km twin tunnels cutting through Bukit Berapit, between Taiping and Padang Rengas.

Apart from subjecting themselves to confined spaces while drilling and controlled blasting through the mountain, they had to navigate their way beneath the North-South Expressway and an existing trunk road that connects Kuala Kangsar to Taiping.

“When constructing a tunnel, we are very much aware that we have only one access and that there must be adequate ventilation at all times. Comprehensive safety standards have to be in place to prevent any possibilities of gas combustion that might escalate to an explosion,” he said.

Ng, who started his career in tunnel engineering about 11 years ago, was part of the specialised team that built the Stormwater Management and Road Tunnel (SMART) in the Klang Valley, which is the world’s first dual-purpose stormwater and highway tunnel.

The SMART project used state-of-the-art slurry shield tunnel boring machines.

Lately, his team has been instrumental in constructing the twin bore Berapit Tunnels and the Larut Tunnel using the “drill and blast” approach.

Today, out of the 200 Malaysian tunnel engineers who worked on SMART, 120 are working on the electrified railway double-tracking project.

“Looking back, I feel that I am lucky to be given the opportunity to contribute to major infrastructure projects here and gain valuable hands-on exposure in tunnel engineering,” said Ng.

“If there is but one wish for me, I would want to be remembered for my role in these national projects.”

Final Report On East Coast Railway Project To Be Completed Soon
April 14, 2011 16:44 PM
http://www.bernama.com/bernama/state...=579077&cat=et

KUANTAN, April 14 (Bernama) -- The East Coast Economic Region Development Council (ECERDC) is in the process of completing its final report on the possible east coast railway project linking Kuala Lumpur-Kuantan-Tumpat, which covers a distance of 550km.

State Housing, Basic Infrastructure and Transportation Committee Chairman Datuk Mohd Soffi Abdul Razak said that the Kuala Lumpur-Kuantan route would involve five districts -- Bentong, Bera, Temerloh, Maran and Kuantan.

"This project will make an impact on Pahang's social and economic sectors, especially in the districts affected," he said in response to a question from Datuk Chuan Boon Seong (BN-Mentakab) at the state assembly sitting here on Thursday.

He said the project would create more employment for people through the development of projects, such as the Kuantan Port City project, Oil Palm Industrial Cluster, Wood Industrial Park in Temerloh, Pahang Technology Park and the Bentong Mixed Industrial Park, along the route.

Besides that, he said the districts involved would progress and develop with a more modern and efficient transportation network connecting them to the Klang Valley.

Meanwhile, Pahang Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob said that the state government would take action under the National Land Code 1965 against Temporary Occupation Licence (TOL) operators who flouted approval requirements by planting on a permanent basis for cash-crop projects.

He said that they had carried out some enforcement measures, such as patrols on rule violations.

"The Land Administrator can cancel the TOL. Continuous monitoring will also be carried out to ensure the problem does not recur," he said in response to a question from Syed Hamid Syed Mohamed (PAS-Kuala Semantan).

Adnan said 114.118 hectares of land in Temerloh, Jerantut, Lipis and Raub had been identified as flouting TOL approval requirements by growing permanent crops.

He added that action had been taken on 42.09 hectares of land, while action needed to be taken on another 73.03 hectares.

Feasibility study on East Coast Rail Route completed - Najib
Last updated on 31 July 2012 - 09:03pm
http://www.thesundaily.my/news/451481

KUALA LUMPUR (July 31, 2012): The feasibility study on the East Coast Rail Route, covering Pahang, Terengganu and Kelantan, has been completed, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak announced today.

He said the rail route would be built in phases, starting with Phase 1, spanning a 109Km rail track from Kertih to Kuantan.

The proposed route is 600 kilometres in length, from Kuala Lumpur to Tumpat, passing through Mentakab, Kuantan, Kuala Terengganu and Kota Baharu, he said.

"The massive project will have a significant impact in terms of improving East Coast Economic Region's (ECER) connectivity with the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia and expediting economic growth within the region," he said in a statement after chairing the ECER Development Council meeting here today.

Najib, who is also the council's chairman, earlier chaired the council's second meeting for the year.

The prime minister said Phase 1 of the rail route project would help improve linkages between the various industrial areas within the East Coast Economic Region Special Economic Zone such as the Gambang Halal Park, Kemaman Supply Base and Ship Repair.

The Gebeng Integrated Petrochemical Complex, Pekan Automotive Park and the Palm Oil Industrial Cluster and the Kuantan Port, which would ultimately enhance the port's competitiveness, would also immensely benefit from the project, said Najib, who is also Finance Minister.

"The proposed rail system for the east coast will provide a major boost for investors as businesses will be able to significantly reduce their costs by using this cost-effective and efficient mode of transport, which is also more environment-friendly," he added.

The feasibility study on the integrated rail route started in 2009. – Bernama
