Movable bridge systems are among the highlights in bridge construction. The new swing bridge over the River Prai Malaysia moves not less than 1,100 tonnes of steel in 120 seconds on one axis, thus opening a passage for shipping in the shortest time. This railway swing bridge is located on the legendary Singapore - Bangkok route, and connects the port of Butterworth with the region’s most important railway lines.

The Malaysian Railway KTMB has placed its trust in the engineering of Waagner-Biro for the second time: the old swing bridge from the 60s came from the same Austrian bridge building specialist who is replacing it now.

East coast rail line may cost RM60b
By Sharen Kaur Published: 2013/04/18
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz2QkLbUC4h



Most of the potential 620km East Coast Rail Route’s required investment will be sourced from the private sector, sources say

THE 620km East Coast Rail Route (ECRR) linking Greater Kuala Lumpur and three east coast states in Peninsular Malaysia is expected to cost around RM60 billion, sources say.

Most of the potential line’s required investment will be sourced from the private sector, they added.

The East Coast Economic Region Development Council (ECERDC) has proposed the ECRR to the federal government and its viability is being studied by the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD).

SPAD plays a central role in improving road and rail-based public and freight transport in the country.

Its chief development officer Azmi Abdul Aziz Gamusaid the ECRR aims to create rail connectivity to the east coast and provide economic spillover from Greater Kuala Lumpur.

“We are still studying the proposal (by ECERDC). We have not reached any conclusion.

“A new railway scheme will be formed as it will involve cutting across the Main Range (Banjaran Titiwangsa),” Azmi told Business Times on the sidelines of the Rail Solutions Asia conference here yesterday.

He added that the project, if viable, will be implemented in four phases. He, however, declined to reveal the cost.

“We have mapped out plans to develop railway infrastructure in Malaysia up to 2030. We are now working on plans beyond 2030.

This project (ECRR) may be implemented before or after 2030,” Azmi said.

According to sources, ECRR will take about 15 years to develop as it will involve a lot of underground work and building tunnels across Banjaran Titiwangsa.

ECERDC has established that a rail route connecting all the major ports, business centres and towns in Pahang, Terengganu and Kelantan is vital to achieve growth in the east coast.

Based on the National Public Transport Masterplan available on SPAD’s website, the ECRR line may start either from the integrated transport terminal in Gombak, Batu Caves or Serendah, all in Selangor.

It will enter Pahang, stopping at Bentong, Mentakab or Temerloh, Maran and Gambang before heading on to the Kuantan Sentral station and then onwards to Kuantan Port City.

From there it will go into Terengganu, stopping at Kemaman, Kertih, Paka, Dungun, Ajil, Kuala Terengganu, Penarik and Kampung Raja.

It will then move into Kelantan, passing Tok Bali, Jelawat and Kota Baru, before reaching its final stop in Tumpat, about 9km from the Thailand-Malaysia border.


Business Times reported recently that the railway track between Kerteh and Kuantan, owned by Petroleum Nasional Bhd (Petronas), will be redeveloped for about RM2 billion.

The line, which ceased operations more than a year ago, will form part of the ECRR project, a source said.

Great to see this is finally being looked at again. I'm in favour of the Batu Caves option, as it would give an opportunity to extend Komuter service to IIUM Gombak at the same time. Provision could also short extension to the Kelana Jaya line at the station (Gombank terminus is only ~1km south of IIUM, and could follow the E8 highway), creating a new interchange for the whole area.

One imperative for this project really should be a proper junction with existing east coast line at Mentakab (I'm guessing it is, but it's not mentioned), so KL bound old ECL trains can access the new line. That would literally cut hours of the travel time off of travel from the interior towns to the capital - as well as from Kota Bahru, even before the new ECL is completed.

Really hope this comes to fruition

I was told by my friends in KTM that today (21st April 2013) the new Larut tunnel in Bukit Berapit will commence operation, replacing the Taiping pass.

Well Malaysia is a very different country as compared to others. Every tourists like that country. The Malaysian railway standard is very high as compared to less developed countries. There railway is neat and clean. I have spent the holidays last month in Malaysia. I was very excited when I was travelling their railway.

However, it is unfortunate that despite the extensive Malaysian tourism around the world, rail-based tourist attraction is rare in Malaysia. Sometime, KTM doesn't seem to be involved in tourism in Malaysia.....

I don't understand why the Bukit Merah viaduct never gone up into operation just as the Bukit Berapit/Larut tunnels went into operation last month, and the Bukit Merah (see image below) and the old Parit Buntar stations with the old single tracks are still active.
