Probably to be a safe place to turn around, if the road leading up to the station is a no-outlet road.

Some more pics from Malaysian forums by rgen and posted by TWK90.

Arau station in Perlis, one of the Northernmost railways stations of the Ipoh-Padang Besar electrified and double tracked project. After this station is the last station, Padang Besar before the Malaysia-Thai border.

The line is expected to open end of this year or early 2015 once the electrification works are completed.

ERL extension to Seremban and Malacca proposed and under study by SPAD

-Expcted cost= RM8 billion
-KLIA-Seremban = 45km
-Seremban-Melaka=55km
-Total proposed extension=100km
-Cost of ticket to Melaka base on current RM/km on current KLS-KLIA fare= RM95

Seems railway development is the new 'highway' to move money around.

I am scetical of this development though as it is not part of the list in the RM160 billion railway development. Unless this extension will be part of the KL-Singapore HSR.

RM8b COST: Express rail link service may be extended to Seremban, Malacca

THE government is looking at extending the express rail link (ERL) service from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang to Malacca.

The RM8 billion project will comprise the purchase of new train sets, construction of a new alignment and installation of the communications and signalling system.

Government sources said yesterday there could be two to four stations, including a confirmed stop in Seremban.

Depending on the alignment, the KLIA-Seremban stretch could be about 45km, and another 45km to 55km from Seremban to Malacca, the sources said.

They said the go-ahead for the project would depend on a feasibility study to be undertaken by the Public Transport Commission (SPAD).

Express Rail Link Sdn Bhd (ERLSB) operates the ERL services between KL Sentral in Brickfields and KLIA.

ERLSB is a joint-venture company between YTL Corp Bhd, Lembaga Tabung Haji and Trisilco Equity Sdn Bhd, with a 50, 40 and 10 per cent interest in the company, respectively.

The government awarded the company a 30-year concession in August 1997 to finance, build, maintain and control the operations.

The RM2.4 billion 57km-ERL line was financed through equity mergers (RM500 million), loans from Development and Infrastructure Bank of Malaysia (RM940 million) and import credit from four German financial institutions.

This means ERLSB spent about RM42 million per km, which includes buying the train sets and installing the communications and signalling system.

ERLSB took three years to build the line and achieved profits in 2003, after only a year of operations.

After its completion, YTL had proposed extending the high-speed rail line to Singapore for about RM8 billion.

The ERL trains run at a maximum commercial speed at 160kph, the fastest speed for rail travel in Malaysia.

ERLSB chief executive officer Noormah Mohd Noor said the proposed ERL extension to Malacca would help ease congestion on major highways in the Klang Valley.

"It is a good idea as it would help ease the burden of passengers travelling daily from Seremban and Malacca to Kuala Lumpur. Instead of building more roads, the government should channel the funds for railway development.

"With the ERL, travel time from Kuala Lumpur to Seremban should be about 50 minutes, and an additional 30 minutes to Malacca," she told Business Times.

‘EDTP project handover in Nov’
9 JUNE 2014 @ 8:56 PM
http://www.nst.com.my/node/1036

THE Ipoh-Padang Besar electrified double-tracking project (EDTP), Malaysia’s largest and costliest railway project, is slated to be completed by November this year.

The project will then be handed over to the Ministry of Transport.

According to Gamuda Bhd’s website, the EDTP will provide tremendous economic multiplier effects in Perak, Kedah, Penang and Perlis.

The EDTP project was awarded to a joint-venture (JV) company comprising MMC Corp Bhd and Gamuda on a design-and-build basis for RM12.48 billion in July 2008.

It involves the laying of two new 329km-long parallel tracks to replace the existing single track, including new stations, bridges, electrification of tracks and signalling systems.

The first section stretches from Ipoh to Butterworth for 171km. The second section stretches from Bu-kit Meritahan to Padang Besar for 158km.

Priority was given for the first section as it is a continuation of the Rawang-Ipoh line. This line shor-tens the distance between Kuala Lumpur and Butterworth to three hours from the current nine hours.

In December 2009, it was announced that the project completion date will be extended from January 2013 to December 2013 due to late approvals of the design, and delays in the handover of the land caused by the relocation process of 3,000 squatters.

MMC Gamuda JV, however, was unable to meet the December 2013 deadline and asked for an extension to hand over the project to the Transport Ministry by June this year.

Gamuda and MMC officials were not immediately available for comment.

A source close to Gamuda said the JV has completed most of the work and is planning for the handover.

“There are still some minor works needed to be done,” the source said last Friday.

The EDTP project is part of a master plan to improve the public transport system and ease road congestion in Malaysia.

Road transport constitutes almost 90 per cent of the transportation system, causing congestion on the expressway.

Rail transport constitutes only three per cent due to the low speed of electric trains, which makes journeys time-consuming.
