Ipoh-Padang Besar Electrified Double Track Project (329 km)


http://www.gamuda.com.my/i/gamuda-edtp5.jpg

FACT FIND:
- Rail is much safer compared to other modes of transportation, and can save the country millions annually in road accident costs.
- The Electrified Double Track project from Ipoh to Padang Besar requires 1,500,000 tonnes of cement costing RM400 million.
- The requirement of steel bars exceed 400,000 tonnes at the estimated value of RM1 billion.
- Freight is currently Keretapi Tanah Melayu’s biggest money earner with the northern section contributing over 70% of the revenue.
- Over RM2 million pieces of precast costing RM800 million is required for the Ipoh to Padang Besar Electrified Double Track project.
- Over 1,200 trailers and tipper trucks will be needed to transport these materials to work sites.
- Once complete, the project will multiply the existing capacity of the current railway network.
- A total of 12 quarries near the project will be expanded/upgraded to supply over 20 million tonnes of aggregates.
- The Berapit tunnel will be the longest railway twin single-track tunnels in South East Asia with a distance of 3.3km in length and hosts the world’s largest pipe arch

Just a thought. I'm not sure if this has been asked before, but why the need for twin tunnels when a single tunnel could fit 2 tracks? Just enlarging one of those tunnels would seem to allow for space for another track. I note that the maximum speed of rolling stock on the line is 160km/h.

Seems to me like a lot more money that would be required this way, for a relatively short distance of tunnel. Or am I wrong?

The wind blast from high speed running could create a sudden pressure surge when entering narrow tunnel. And this could led to uncomfortable experience for passengers.

There are many reasons :

1) Any nasty event (derailment, fire, water breakthrough, etc) will affect only
one track, the other will remain available ;

2) derailment on one track will never cause a collision with a train coming
on the other track ; and if designed for that, trains can be 'guided' by high-
level sidewalks on both sides of the track, thus maintaining them almost
straight in case of derailment (like in the channel tunnel) ;

3) works can be done on one track without affecting the other one, which will
remain available at nominal speed ;

4) No adverse effect of air pressure when trains meet at high speed ;

5) (not done here but anyway) You can start boring for one track only and
then bore for the second track as traffic builds up ;

6) If foreseen in the design, you can use the other bore as safe escape way
and as way to access the site in case of disaster inside ;

7) at building stage, it is not necessary that much more pricey... the tunnel
section needed to accomodate the pressure effects when train meet on a
double track is enormous, specially at high speeds. Building two bores for
a single track each will result in a smaller total section, thus less earth to
excavate ;

8) and then, a bit outdated, but... it's much more resilient to military (or
terrorist) attacks than a two-tracks bore. Look at the trans-siberian railway,
all bridges are independent (separate bridge for each track) for the very same
reason. Stalin wanted it that way...

Twin tunnels are much more in favor than dual track ones nowadays.

Progress of Seremban EMU depot construction (17/7/2013)

This is the construction of new electric train depot for KTM, primarily for suburban trains. It is built on 16 hectare land, capable of storing 19 trains and handling maintenance of 6 trains at a time. Its layout is modeled after the Northampton electric train depot in the UK.

Sure. But it's under Stalin that the second track was added.

I was thinking that if Trans-Asian railway materialize, it will allow Malaysian Railway to be a part of global railway network (of some sort).

Even Indonesia is strongly considering to built Malacca strait bridge that will feature railway connection too, allowing trans-national service between the two countries.

The gauge will be standard gauge, to sort out the difference between Malaysian's meter gauge, and Indonesia's cape gauge.

From ZKeretapi.Blogspot.com:

Setelah sekian lama memberikan khidmatnya kepada penduduk setempat, akhirnya Stesen keretapi Bukit Merah ditutup secara rasminya mulai 30 Julai 2013 yang lalu.

Stesen ini merupakan stesen kedua yang ditutup sepanjang laluan antara Stesen Bagan Serai dan Taiping setelah Stesen Pondok Tanjung ditutup beberapa bulan yang lepas. Ini kerana jajaran landasan yang baru bagi Projek Landasan Berkembar Elektrifikasi Ipoh - Padang Besar tidak lagi melalui kedua - dua tempat tersebut.

Semasa beroperasi stesen yang terletak di KM 66.7 atau di TT 40/17 ini, merupakan sebuah stesen 'fully interlocked' dilengkapi dengan 16 'lever ground frame'. Terdapat satu landasan gegelung dan satu landasan sisian perkhidmatan yang selalu digunakan oleh tren balas atau keretarel dari Merinyu Urusan Jalan. Stesen ini cuma mempunyai sebuah platform yang berkedudukan di sebelah kiri arah landasan turun.

Walaupun stesen ini sebelum penutupannya hanyalah sebuah stesen operasi bagi tujuan perselisihan tren, tetapi ianya pernah digunakan untuk Tren Ekspres Langkawi bagi mengambil dan menurunkan penumpang yang ingin berkunjung ke Bukit Merah Laketown Resort. Pada suatu ketika dahulu, tren-tren mel siang dan malam yang banyak berhenti di stesen ini.

Setelah siapnya jajaran landasan yang baru, semua tren tidak lagi melalui laluan asal yang berliku.

Harapnya agar stesen ini akan terus dikekalkan dan dijaga sebagai sebuah warisan bagi membuktikan bahawa pernah wujud sebuah stesen keretapi di Bukit Merah.

Aku paparkan di sini sebahagian daripada kenangan yang aku kumpul dari berbagai sumber sebagai perkongsian pada kali ini.

* * 据南车株机动车组技术专家周安德介绍,马来西亚城际铁路为米轨制式。针对该城际铁路距离长、站间距相对大、时速更高等要求,设计专家从车辆安全、环保、人性化设计等方面做了全面提升,这将是一款更加舒适高档的新型城际动车组。运行时速140至160公里,堪称米轨上的“高铁”。

* * 作为“推动全球轨道交通发展的中国力量”,截至目前,南车株机进入马来西亚、土耳其、乌兹别克斯坦、哈萨克斯坦、新加坡、印度、中国香港等十余个国家和地区轨道交通装备市场。2012年,该公司出口额超过5亿美元,新增海外订单超过10亿美元,均居中国同行业首位。
