more Rail projects in 10MP?

I really hope when PM table the new Malaysia Plan end of the year will include a renew emphasis on Rail development in Malaysia. Is high time to pump some money into this segment especially with the urban transit system.

And hopefully this time the project is handled at the Cabinet level and not ministry or agency level. A rail project cost a bomb and requires alot of focus, resources, planning and coordination. The country cant affort another IpohDoubleTrack delay.

Much has been announce, suggested over the last few years. Among the projects mention before were the

- Monorail from Sentul to Subang Jaya. Cancel indefinitely after the takeover of KLIG Bhd who says is not viable to construct that route

- extension of KTM Commuter to Batu Caves that cost rm400million for 7km. Works Minister has mention many times that the project is on, but yet nothing much has started

- extension of the Star and Putra LRT. Cancel since the economy crisis. never mention again

- new LRT Damansara to Cheras. Concept in KL Masterplan, but nothing has been discuss or plan.

- New route for KTM Commuter. Suggested by KTM but still in very preliminary stage of conception.

- Double Track Padang Besar - JB. Postpone by PM to cut budget deficit

- Penang LRT - only in conception.
- JB LRT - only in conception.

it has been almost 7 years since the LRT started operation. Which was build for the 98 Commonwealth games. Klang Valley residence really deserve further improvement and more rail routes as a mode of public transport. The same goes to Penang Ipoh JohorBharu will is getting over congested.

I hope we dont have to wait till the next Asian Games or Commonwealth Games before we get a new LRT line.

Construction of Putrajaya Monorail System: KLinfra in the running

Story By : SHAREN KAUR



KL Infrastructure Group Bhd (KLinfra), the operator of the monorail system in Kuala Lumpur, has emerged as the front runner to win a contract valued close to RM1 billion, to help build a similar system in Putrajaya, insiders said yesterday.

Mail Money was told the company may receive a letter of award from the Ministry of Transport in the very ¡§near future¡¨.

The 9km monorail track will seek to link several landmarks in the nation¡¦s administrative centre, among them the Putrajaya Convention Centre, Putrajaya Mosque and the Government Administrative Complex.

It is estimated that it will cost RM100 million per km of monorail track, and the contract will include the supply of trains for the track.

The Government, last year had deferred the project after a review by the Economic Planning Unit, which led the Federal Government not approving funding for the project.

Mail Money was told the money will be made available in the coming budget, but the cost will be much higher than the RM368 million, that was initially cited.

The company had built the country¡¦s first monorail link in Kuala Lumpur at a cost of about RM1.18 billion, which runs through the heart of the city.

KLinfra is the country¡¦s third urban rail system operator after Sistem Transit Aliran Ringan Sdn Bhd (Star) and Projek Usahasama Transit Ringan Automatik Sdn Bhd (Putra) light rail systems (LRT).

Monorail City To Build Two More Stations
Updated : 30-06-2005
Media : Bernama



Monorail City Development Sdn Bhd (Monorail City), plans to add two more stations in its route-map to link them to Mid Valley Megamall and KL Sentral within two years from now, executive director, Lai Ying Choy said.

The move, he said is part of the group's expansion plan to cater for the growing demand from the public for better accessibility to the commuter network in the Klang Valley.

"Currently, we are in the stage of seeking an approval from the Ministry of Transportation and other related parties, hopefully we can establish our operations in these two new areas within two to three years from now," he told reporters after witnessing the signing of a RM30 million loan facility between the company and Bank Pembangunan dan Infrastruktur Malaysia Bhd (BPIMB), here Thursday.

The loan facility, which offers an interest rate of 3.75 percent per annum and has a tenure of 10 years, will be used by the company to finance its development cost of the "Jalan-Jalan Xintiandi" project in the Brickfields area.

Monorail was represented by its chairman, Datuk Muhamad Yasin Yahya while BPIMB by its president and managing director, Datuk Abdul Rahim Mohd Zin.

Lai said the plan was considered as a strategic and timely move in line with the expansion of MidValley development itself and also the growing population of Kuala Lumpur.

"It is also a good strategy as it would contribute towards the government's plan to integrate Klang Valley's public transportation system," he said.

The concept involves integrating the various modes of public transport including trains, buses, taxis and park-and-ride facilities under one roof.

Bringing all components under one roof is the best solution to bring about an efficient service, Lai said.

"With the completion of these two new stations, we hope our daily ridership will grow to 80,000 from 45,000 currently," he said.

With a total of 11 fully elevated stations (consisting of Titiwangsa, Chow Kit, Medan Tuanku, Bukit Nanas, Raja Chulan, Bukit Bintang, Imbi, Hang Tuah, Maharajalela, Tun Sambanthan and Brickfields), each between 600 metres to 1,000 metres apart, the KL Monorail is currently capable of handling up to a maximum 5,000 passengers per hour per direction (PPHPD), operating at three minutes headway with 12 numbers of two-car trains.

The 8.6 kilometre monorail elevated service will start from the Titiwangsa station in Jalan Tun Razak passing to the city centre before terminating at the KL Sentral in Brickfields.

Meanwhile, its chairman, Datuk Muhamad Yasin said under the "Jalan-Jalan Xiantiandi" project, the company is undertaking the retail development along a corridor earmarked for KL Monorail System's ancillary activities.

"Jalan-Jalan Xiantiandi flanks the Brickfields side of Klang river, across from Jalan Syed Putra and is next to the Tun Sambanthan Monorail Station and the development continues to link up with the KL Sentral Station," he said.

It features a canal running through semi-open structures of up to five storeys with 300,000 sq. ft spread over 6.7 acres of land.

Designed as a leisure, food and lifestyle centre offering upscale eateries and cafes, retail shops, a bazaar and a college/office, the area's future development include a boutique hotel and an entertainment arena.

Monorail City is a wholly owned subsidiary of KL Infrastructure Group Bhd.

KTM's Batu Gajah Workshop/Training Centre: Plan approval soon
FRANCIS FERNANDEZ
July 5:



THE Federal Government is close to approving a plan to build a central workshop and railway training centre in Batu Gajah for KTM Bhd, the national railway company, people familiar with the matter said yesterday.

Mail Money was told that a closed door tender might be called for the project, valued at about RM480 million by as early as this month.

The project was earlier supposed to be awarded to DRB Hicom Bhd, which had submitted a detailed plan via direct negotiations, but due to financial constrains the project was put on hold.

Among the companies which might be invited to submit their bids are YTL Corp Bhd, which had build the old workshop and training school for KTM in Sentul, Kuala Lumpur, Arab Malaysian Corp Bhd and IJM Corp Bhd.

Australia’s largest construction company, Leighton Holdings Ltd and an unnamed South Korean firm, might also be invited to submit bids, Mail Money was told.

The project is said to be a priority as KTM's present base in Sentul will be giving way for residential and commercial development activities.

The project involves the construction of two buildings on a 160-hectare site as part of a new rail infrastructure development plan.

The plan calls for a dedicated centre to undertake major maintenance and overhaul of KTM's rolling stock, as well as a centre to manufacture locally-assembled wagons and coaches, which are currently mostly imported from Europe.

KTM will be the project operator for the project.

RAIL INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT AT BATU GAJAH







Minister Officiates The Ground Breaking Of Batu Gajah’s New Railway Station - 18th March 2004

The Minister of Transport Dato’ Sri Chan Kong Choy officiated Batu Gajah’s new railway station at a ground breaking ceremony at Kampung Pisang Batu Gajah, Perak.

In his speech he said the KTM Berhad's Central Workshop and Railway Training Centre would be set up there to help boost Batu Gajah town as the hub for major railway-based activities in the country.

Two complexes, would be developed on the 160-hectare site and are expected to be completed in 2008 at a total cost of about RM400 million. They would have a combined workforce of 500.


The first complex, i.e the central workshop, would replace those found in Sentul, Kuala Lumpur. It is a part of the new Rail Infrastructure Development Project, and would undertake major maintenance and overhaul on KTM's rolling stock.

Another important complex would be the new railway-training centre, which would accommodate the growing demand for expertise in the railway sector and to enhance manpower skills.

The project is one of the 12 under the electrified double-tracking project connecting Rawang and Ipoh. The others are in Serendah, Rasa, Batang Kali, Kuala Kubu Baru, Tanjung Malim, Behrang, Slim River, Sungkai, Tapah Road, Kampar and Ipoh.

Dato’ Sri Chan added that the proposed training centre could also play the role of "centre of excellence" that could benefit other railway authorities in Southeast Asia.

The Railway Infrastructure Development Project as a whole would also act as a catalyst for downstream activities in the area. This will create the much needed employment opportunities and raise the quality of life of the people of Perak, and Batu Gajah.

Also present at the function were Barisan Nasional candidate for Batu Gajah Datuk Ong Ka Chuan, Transport Ministry secretary-general Datuk Zaharah Shaari, KTMB chairman Tan Sri Thong Yaw Hong and KTMB managing director Encik Mohd Salleh Abdullah.

DRB-HICOM Berhad is the main contractor for Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) electrified double-tracking project.

Updated : 13-07-2005
Media : Malay Mail
Story By : Sharen Kaur



THE Government has extended the tender period for the RM480 million central workshop and railway training centre in Batu Gajah, Perak, people familiar with the plan said yesterday.

The tender was supposed to be closed today, but was extended to Aug 13, as some of the companies needed more time to complete their proposals.

Mail Money was told that as many as 11 companies had been invited by the Government to submit a detailed proposal for the project.

The project is split into two portions. Portion one involves the construction of a main workshop and a EMU depot. The portion is believed to be valued at RM380 million.

Portion two involves the building of railway quarters and a training school. The portion is believed to be valued at RM120 million.

Among the companies which are planning to make submissions are Road Builder (M) Holdings Bhd, Chase Perdana Bhd, the HL Engineering-Projass Engineering JV, the Putra Perdana-Benastar JV, Hartasuma Sdn Bhd, Wamata Corp Sdn Bhd, Selecta Accord Sdn Bhd, Wira Emas Sdn Bhd, Global Flame Sdn Bhd and Tegap Dinamik Sdn Bhd.

A Malaysian-Korean consortium has also been invited to take part in the tender process.

It is understood that the Government may take as long as six months to study the proposals.

It is estimated that the project will take a minimum of 33 months to be completed.

The project is one of the biggest construction-related job on offer this year.

Work on Batu Caves link to start next year
Updated : 13-07-2005
Media : The Star




Work on the long-awaited KTM Komuter extension from Sentul to Batu Caves will begin early next year and be completed in 2008.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy said the Government would proceed with the RM400mil project to enhance the public transport network in the Klang Valley.

The extension, when completed, should add a further 10,000 passengers to KTM Komuter's current 81,000 users, he told a press conference after a ceremony to mark the start of the use of Touch 'n Go cards on the KTM Komuter system at KL Sentral here yesterday.

The 7.2km extension from Sentul to Batu Caves which involves the building of a second track, electrification, stations and signalling was first announced in 1998 but postponed numerous times. The line will have four stations Batu Cantonment, Batu Village, Taman Wahyu and Batu Caves.

The 153km KTM Komuter service consists of two lines Sentul-Port Klang and Seremban-Rawang. The two lines intersect in Kuala Lumpur.

Chan said the tender and technical papers for the project was now being prepared.

Besides serving the residents in the area, the Sentul-Batu Caves line will also be used by tourists and Thaipusam pilgrims, he said.

He added that KTM Komuter was expected to carry more than 30 million passengers this year, up from 27.2 million last year.

On the use of Touch 'n Go on public transport, Chan said public transport operators and the card's operator Rangkaian Segar Sdn Bhd should agree on implementing the system quickly.

The Star yesterday reported that the last two rail-based public transport operators in the Klang Valley KL Monorail System Sdn Bhd and Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd ¨had agreed to accept the card.

While KL Monorail said it would start accepting the card in August, ERL has not given a commencement date.

Electrified Double Track Project Sentul - Batu Caves
source : http://www.ktmb.com.my/article.cfm?id=47



In line with the Government’s Policy to alleviate road congestion and enhance the existing public transportation system, it has become indispensable to extend the existing Klang Valley Commuter Network to Batu Caves. Upon completion, residence in the Selayang/Gombak municipality would benefit from a high capacity railway service that would also serve as an alternative means for road transportation. The existing single track route will be upgraded to a double track and equipped with new infrastructure, i.e., new bridges, underpasses, drainage systems, new Sentul and Batu Caves Stations, new halts at Taman Wahyu, Kampung Batu and Batu Kentonmen, overhead electrification system 25kV AC (single phase) including modern signalling and communication system. The project is expected to commence in the third quarter of 2004 and expected to complete within a period of 30 months.



Sentul - Batu Caves EDT Project







Perspective View

1) Typical Halt







2) Batu Caves Station

Putrajaya Monorail Project To Resume Soon
July 31, 2005 12:38 PM



PUTRAJAYA, July 31 (Bernama) -- The monorail project in the federal government's administrative centre will resume soon for the convenience of the residents, workers and visitors, said Deputy Federal Territories Minister Datuk Zulhasnan Rafique.

He said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi was expected to announce the details soon.

Speaking to reporters after flagging off 165 vehicles which took part in the Putrajaya Treasure Hunt 2005, Zulhasnan said the areas where the rails, underground tunnels and stations would be built had been identified.

He said project implementor Putrajaya Holdings Sdn Bhd was ready to hand over the facilities to the Transport Ministry for further action.

The first phase of the project would involve constructing an underground and overhead monorail system spanning 8km from the Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Ministry in Precinct 3 to the Education Ministry in Parcel E, he said.

Zulhasnan also said Putrajaya Corporation, the local authority, was expanding the public transport system in Putrajaya in stages.

He said it had offered a new tender to Nadi Putra, which operates the bus service, to deploy 53 more buses run on natural gas.

Hopefully, with the monorail in service and deployment of more buses, the transportation problem faced by a large number of the 70,000 residents and workers who commuted within the Putrajaya area daily would be overcome, he said.

Putrajaya's delayed monorail project may be back on track

Updated : 01-08-2005
Media : The Star




The long-delayed monorail project here may be back on track again.

The decision to revive the project came in light of the increasing number of residents, workers and tourists who now congregate to the country's administrative centre.

Deputy Federal Territories Minister Datuk Zulhasnan Rafique said there would be an announcement soon by the Transport Ministry on the status of the project.

กงWe canกฆt say much about the project at the moment. But a decision will be made soon on its status.

กงAt present, most of the infrastructure necessary for Phase One of the project, involving some 9km, is already up,กจ he told reporters here yesterday.

The infrastructure, he added, included a 4km underground tunnel linking many of the government complexes and a bridge across the main lake here.

กงThe main components of the project have been put into place. All the monorail operator has to do, once the company has been chosen, is to put in the rail and other subsidiary systems,กจ he said.

In June last year, Federal Territories Minister Tan Sri Mohd Isa Abdul Samad had announced that the RM400mil project was being shelved, as the Government had not approved funding for it.

It was supposed to have been completed by the end of last year. Initially, the plan was to have two monorail lines in Putrajaya.

Zulhasnan said Putrajaya Corporation was trying to implement the park-and-ride concept and enhance public transport to ease parking woes here.

กงAt present, the concept is only implemented at the Express Rail Link station in Precinct 7 while we have plans for seven such facilities. We cannot really put this plan into place until the Putrajaya monorail, which is an important part of the public transport system here, is completed,กจ he said.

He added that local bus company Nadi Putra was acquiring 55 more vehicles to add to its existing fleet of 25 to cope with demand for public transport.

Parking problems are reaching a critical point in places like Parcels B, C, D and E, where the major government offices are located, and major tourist spots like Dataran Putra.

Zulhasnan said that in addition to this, the number of Putrajaya residents had swelled to 53,000.

Putrajaya Monorail

This map of the city's monorail alignment was provided by MTrans, the
company that is building the Putrajaya Monorail. The second station below
the Depot (blue dot) is the inter-modal station where passengers can
transfer between high speed rail to the international airport or Kuala Lumpur,
taxis or busses. The straight northeast-southwest line is the central corridor
of the city. That corridor already has subway tunnels built for the monorail.



Subway stations have a destinctive look and will shield escalators from the
sun and rain.



Inside the Putrajaya Station are simple to understand graphics. While the
monorail symbol was already in place when these photos were taken in 2004,
the system was still several years away from completion, due to the pause in construction.



On the station platform were various "ingredients" of monorail track.



This first section of monorail guideway was built at the same time as the
Kuala Lumpur Airport High Speed Rail line. Enough beamway was installed to
avoid distruption of surface rail lines during later construction phases.




Another view of graceful arched Alweg monorail beams. Looking off in the
distance, you can see two bridges to the main land mass of Putrajaya city.
Furthest to the left is a bridge which is built exclusively for the monorail.



Once complete, the monorail bridge will give riders a spectacular view of
waterways as they approach the central city. Some sense of the large scale
of this bridge is possible when you compare it to the green porta-potty in
the foreground, and it's still a good distance from the bridge.
