There had been no proposal for the KTM railway to be extended to the Penang island.

Separately, it is being envisioned for Penang island to get their own LRT/MRT system. This proposed line will not include cross-strait connection.

Thank you.

Yes I am aware of this MRT/LRT proposal. However it seems to be quite a glaring missing link that could otherwise be filled easily. This is also considering that Penang Sentral is being built (and off Penang Island) and the second road bridge has been buiilt already. It would be useful for travelling from Penang Island directly to Kuala Lumpur on ETS, I guess probably in 3 hours?

Maybe I'm not really familiar with the demand but I'm sure it would be very useful.

There has been mo masterplan for a rail link between Penang and the Prai mainlaind. Arguments say that the island population at 500-600k is too small for a cross strait rail link which would be very expensive.

What Penang and the federal govt can do is enhance the ferry and bus service in the medium term. The addition of the second bridge would have improved traffic flow for the time being.

Travel between KL-Butterworth should take at most 5 hours on the electrified meter gauge. Could be less than 5 hohrs on a non stop service.

Budget 2015 to strike chord for transition into 11MP
Posted on September 23, 2014, Tuesday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2014/09...ion-into-11mp/

KUCHING: As 2015 marks the final budget allocation under 10th Malaysia Plan (10MP), economists believe next year will see an influx in allocation for development expenditure.

Based on a budgeted RM230 billion for development expenditure, Analysts at TA Securities Holdings Bhd (TA Research) said this suggests RM50 billion to spare for 2015 which will be the highest allocation since 2010.

TA Research says the coming budget will also see allocation for the remaining projects under 10MP before moving to 11MP, which will cover the final leg under the nation’s transformation into a high income economy.

“The notable projects under this umbrella would include Bandar Malaysia, MRT Line 2 and 3 (GDV of RM25 billion each); Tun Razak Exchange (RM26 billion); Kwasa Land (RM50 billion); Southern Double Track (RM8 billion).

“Beyond that, priority will be given to proposed development projects with high creativity index under 11MP.

“The creativity index is calculated based on the impact on the rakyat against the implementation cost, based on demand from state governments and ministries for the 11MP.”

As it is, TA Research understood that some RM13.9 billion had been applied for the implementation of more than 30 development projects under the 11MP.
Among the projects are construction of infrastructure for state and federal roads, coastal roads, a new state general hospital as well as affordable housing.

Prime Minister Datuk Sri Najib Tun Razak has reaffirmed the government’s commitment to shave its fiscal deficit from 3.5 per cent in 2014 towards a balanced budget by 2020.

On this point, TA Research estimated a budget deficit of minus three per cent for gross domestic product for Budget 2015, just a shade higher than 10MP’s target of 2.8 per cent but still in line with global standard.

“As we expect the Government to unveil a slightly softer GDP forecast of five per cent to 5.5 per cent in 2015, this will be achieved through fiscal reform measures.”

RM1.5b needed for rail line rehab
BY SHAREN KAURKUALA - 27 OCTOBER 2014 @ 11:57 PM
http://www.nst.com.my/node/46780

MALAYSIA requires about RM1.5 billion to rehabilitate the east coast single track railway line from Gemas in Negri Sembilan to Tumpat, Kelantan.

“This is an estimate to up-
grade around 500km of tracks, bridges and stations. The rehabilitation of the east coast line is important as the tracks are aging, and it would help Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd (KTMB) boost its revenue stream,” sources told Business Times.

They said that unless there is a major overhaul of the east coast line, the KTM Komuter service would continue to disappoint commuters.

There are several parts along the Gemas-Tumpat stretch that are badly affected. These include railway bridges along Kuala Krai and Gua Musang in Kelantan, which face the problem of rotten wooden sleepers, as well as soil subsidence and erosion affecting the tracks along Kuala Lipis and Jerantut in Pahang.

It was reported that 13 minor derailments have occurred on the railway line since 2012.

During the tabling of the 2015 Budget, the government announced that it would spend RM150 million to upgrade the east coast line from Gemas to Mentakab, Jerantut to Sungai Yu and between Gua Musang and Tumpat.

“The RM150 million is to kick- start the rehabilitation project. There will be more allocations on a yearly basis.

“However, for KTMB to be an efficient rail operator, the whole east coast line needs to be upgraded as soon as possible to avoid accidents and derailments,” said a source.

KTMB, the only rail operator
in Malaysia, controls 1,699km of railway network in Peninsu-
lar Malaysia, which consists of
the east coast line and west coast line.

Gemas is the rail junction between the east coast and west
coast line that runs from Kuala Lumpur to Padang Besar on the Malaysia-Thailand border in Perlis.

The government is spending around RM16 billion to improve the west coast line from Seremban-Gemas and Ipoh-Padang Besar with the electrified double-tracking project.

For the east coast line, there are currently no plans to electrify or double-track that stretch.
