Electric trains to have wifi service, says Liow
Saturday, 15 October 2016 | MYT 10:17 PM
http://www.thestar.com.my/news/natio...rain-services/

IPOH: The Electric Train Service (ETS) will be equipped with wireless internet to keep passengers connected when travelling.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said the ministry gave its full support to a suggestion by the people for the ETS to be equipped with wifi as an effort towards the transformation of the country's transportation system.

"So far, the public is happy with the ETS service and the modernised railway stations, while the remaining old stations will be restored.

“Besides wifi, we also have to make sure the coaches are clean," he told reporters at the Perak MCA convention.

On average, 6,000 people travelled with the ETS daily on normal days while on weekends and public holidays, the volume of passengers doubled to 12,000.

On the National Transportation Council, Liow said the initiative, which was announced on Monday, was scheduled to hold its first meeting by year's end.

He said for a start, the meeting would focus on the coordination of the transportation system nationwide so that no state is left behind.

Meanwhile, the convention passed eight resolutions, including a pledge to give full support to 1Malaysia campaign and the politics of moderation introduced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak as it ensured racial harmony in the country.

The party also supported the transformation plan, including a proposal to amend the constitution to ensure MCA was stronger for the 14th general election.

The convention also unanimously condemned street protest and political demonstrations as they threatened the country's peace and harmony apart from disrupting daily activities.

In GEORGE TOWN, Liow said his ministry was working closely with the Thailand government to continue expanding the ETS from Padang Besar to Hat Yai city.

He said the Thai government had shown keen interest in extending the line as currently the train only reached Padang Besar from Kuala Lumpur.

“Following the discussion with our counterpart, the expansion work on the current ETS line from Padang Besar to Hat Yai is ongoing and we are optimistic that the project will be completed by 2020," he told reporters after officiating the Penang MCA annual convention.

Liow said his ministry and KTMB had agreed to add 10 more ETS trains next year, to meet increasing passenger demands.

"Currently, KTMB has 38 ETS trains and serves the Gemas-Padang Besar route twice a day.

“Each train has six coaches that can accommodate up to 300 passengers at any one time and this is still unable to meet the demand," he added. – Bernama

More ETS coaches on the way
BY CHAN LI LEEN Sunday, 16 October 2016
http://www.thestar.com.my/news/natio...train-service/

IPOH: The Transport Ministry is acquiring more coaches to double the frequency of the Electric Train Service (ETS).

Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said having already bought 10 coaches previously, it would be securing another 10 coaches in the years to come to meet commuters’ demand.

“The number of trips available now is insufficient.

“There are requests to shorten the interval between each Kuala Lumpur-bound trip to 30 minutes or at least 60 minutes,” Liow, who is MCA president, told reporters after opening the state party convention here yesterday.

The ETS makes 36 trips on the Kuala Lumpur-Ipoh-Padang Besar route with an average of 6,000 passengers daily on weekdays.

On weekends and public holidays, the number of passengers doubles, with 40 trips a day.

Liow also said train stations that are rundown will be refurbished while coaches will be kept clean at all times.

“There are requests for WiFi facilities to be made available, which I fully support because passengers will be able to work while commuting,” he added.

On the National Transportation Council, Liow said a meeting will be held by this year to discuss its agenda and terms of reference.

Liow, who is chairman of the consultative body aimed at resolving issues related to the key sector, said that among these matters, it will address the issue of increasing air traffic and passenger volume at the Sultan Azlan Shah Airport here.

Later in George Town, Liow said the electrified double track railway to connect Padang Besar and Haadyai is targeted to materialise by 2020.

“We have discussed the matter with the Thai transport minister and the Thai government has been very supportive.

“They are encouraged to see that we have completed the track from Kuala Lumpur to Padang Besar, so they want us to continue from Padang Besar to Haadyai, which we hope would one day go on to Bangkok.

“All this is being planned in stages,” he said at the Penang MCA convention.

Liow noted that the rail link between Kuala Lumpur and Padang Besar has received overwhelming response from both domestic and foreign tourists, resulting in the service being increased from the initial four to 17 a day.

Separately, he also called on the Penang government to resolve the land issue of Penang Port, which has remained unresolved over the eight years after the land was withdrawn by the state government.

He said the Government wants to develop the Swettenham Pier but is unable to do so without the state government’s support.

“I do not wish for the blame game to continue.

“I want to tell the state government to please resolve it immediately so that we can come up with good plans for Swettenham Pier.

“Now, there are more cruises coming back.

“The Malacca Port has become one of the biggest cruise ports and we want to develop the Penang port too but unfortunately, the state government is not giving the cooperation and support needed, and this has continued at the expense of the Penang people,” he said.

KUALA LUMPUR: The government is set to build a railway line spanning 600km from KL to Tumpat, Kelantan to rejuvenate development in the East Coast.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said the project would be called the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL).

"This will spur a new wave of development to realise the socio-economic potential for the East Coast," he said.

The ECRL, he said, has been identified as a high-impact project which would serve as the backbone transport infrastructure for the ECER (East Coast Economic Region). Najib was speaking at the launch of the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) symposium on land public transport here today.

Are they going to revive this RM 70 billion project?? I hope so although the price is shockingly high even higher than kl-sin HSR at RM 60 billion.

Investing in public transport to catalyse Malaysian economy

http://www.theborneopost.com/2016/10...ysian-economy/

Exhibition and Symposium at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre yesterday. — Bernama photo


KUALA LUMPUR: Over RM70 billion investments in land public transport infrastructure projects have had significant catalytic effects on Malaysia’s economy, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

“The investments in projects such as the Light Rapid Transit (LRT), Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) and High Speed Rail (HSR), has had wide-ranging catalytic effects on our economy.

“It will bring much benefits to the society, both immediately and in the longer term,” he added.

Najib, who is also Finance Minister, was speaking at the Land Public Transport Commission’s (SPAD) Five Year Report launching ceremony, Exhibition and Symposium at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre yesterday.

He said over the past five years, Malaysia had taken significant strides and made good progress on the National Land Public Transport Master Plan, as reflected by the higher public transport mode share of 22 per cent in 2015 from 10 per cent in 2009.

The government aimed to increase this share to 40 per cent by end-2020, he said.

“For this to happen, our land public transport system and policies must be more commuter-centric and responsive to fundamental demographic changes.

“More importantly, commuters must be convinced that public transport can serve their needs, and get them to their destinations reliably and comfortably,” he added.

Among investments lodged by the government for land public transport are the RM40.85 million for GoKL free city bus service, as well as, the RM548 million for bus services initiative called the Interim Stage Bus Support Fund.

The Prime Minister said the government had also invested RM20.6 million for the operationalisation of myBAS services by SPAD in Kangar since August 2015, in Seremban since January 2016 and in Ipoh since June 2016.

Besides that, the government has also allocated RM760 million for the repairs, rehabilitation and upgrading works for the East Coast line from Gemas to Tumpat.

Add to that, RM661 million has been invested in Bus Rapid Transit Sunway, a pilot project via public-private partnership, which started operations in June 2015.

In March 2012, the government increased the capacity for KTM Komuter services by investing RM1.89 billion to add 38 units of six-car train set.

This has contributed to the 45 per cent increase in KTM Komuter ridership from 96,798 daily in 2012 to 141,281 passengers daily at end-2015.

The government has also lodged investments to upgrade KTM Komuter’s ageing infrastructure, with RM1.41 billion investment for the rehabilitation exercise of the 20 year-old Klang Valley Double Track, Najib added. — Bernama
