ECRL a 'rail' game-changer
By A JALIL HAMID August 13, 2017 @ 11:10am



An artist’s impression of the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) station in Wakaf Baru, Kelantan. The proposed ECRL is a perfect example of how better connectivity will help transform the generally less developed east coast region.
Quote:
RECENTLY, one British TV series on railways around the world paid a glowing tribute to the success of Japan’s railways.

Here’s what the commentator had to say:

“Japan’s railways are the envy of the world: fast, clean, frequent and punctual, they are a daunting example to other nations of what can be achieved when government, business and science cooperate for the benefit of all.”

Rail industry experts would agree that Japan is one of the few nations that really believe that a railway network should be an integral part of the multi-modal transportation system.

Thanks to Japan, the rising interest in rail in other countries, including Malaysia, is unprecedented. Its vast rail network and systems — monorail, LRT, MRT, commuter, intercity and high-speed — is a model for all to emulate.

Japan’s bullet trains, or the Shinkansen, for example, marked 50 years of service in 2014 carrying 10 billion riders with a pristine record of safety and dependability.

The Shinkansen is not just a symbol of Japanese efficiency, but also a big factor in shaping the nation’s economy.

Malaysia is lately taking the cue from Japan, South Korea, India and even China and the United States in investing heavily in rail infrastructure.

We may be a late starter in this game, but it is better to be late than never.

The reasons are obvious: The economic arguments for building modern and efficient rail systems — both for freight and passengers — are overwhelmingly strong.

Studies have shown how rail systems greatly improve regional economies.

They will help narrow the disparity between developed cities and underdeveloped towns.

In this case, the proposed East Coast Rail Link (ECRL), which connects Kuala Lumpur to Kota Baru via the coast, is a perfect example of how better connectivity will help transform the generally less developed east coast region.

There are no reasons why most infrastructure spending is focused on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia alone.

Many also don’t realise the “leveller” effect. Faster connectivity via trains helps “level out” the advantage that only suppliers close to the Klang Valley can supply companies operating in and around Kuala Lumpur.

Some economists said the impact of this project on the economy will be multi-level.

For a start, construction and infrastructure companies will enjoy benefits, but much will depend on the speed of rolling out and implementing the parcels, said AmBank Group’s chief economist Anthony Dass.

At the same time, commercial activities will also benefit during the construction process.

In the longer term, once the entire project is completed, strong benefits will seep into services-related activities. Properties in major towns are likely to enjoy more, especially the port-connected towns, Dass said.

The reason being businesses related to logistics and trade will improve in the port-related towns.

Other areas would benefit from the movement of tourists. As for the smaller towns, they are more likely to enjoy from the spillover effects of this connectivity via movement of people commuting to work and new areas of business growth, especially in areas like small and medium businesses.

It is expected to save time and that would help in some degree in the cost of doing business. Also, if the time saved is justified, it allows people to commute from one town to another for work and other related activities, thus creating new townships and reducing over-urbanisation in a particular area.

At the same time, there will be challenges as well. One of them is the risk of cost overrun.

The other risk is the gestation period for the project to be fully utilised or operating above break-even point.

Thirdly, the challenge is how well we can tap into the regional trade movements, especially from neighbouring China, Vietnam and Thailand.

The ECRL project will be developed in two phases covering a total of 688.3km from Port Klang to Kota Baru.

There will be 11 eight-car train sets with a capacity of up to 600 passengers, running at an operating speed of 160 km per hour.

That means it takes just over four hours to reach Kota Baru from Kuala Lumpur as against more than seven hours by road.

By 2040, ECRL is projected to carry close to 53 million tonnes of cargo and eight million passengers a year.

Economist Dr Jomo K.S. has posed a question whether the ECRL will be an expensive “white elephant” paid for by Malaysians for many years to come.

He also questioned the way the project was awarded to a Chinese firm and whether Malaysia can afford the huge project.

In the first place, every big infrastructure project will draw criticism but most of them work out better than the critics contended early on.

Such big infrastructure projects are usually under-appreciated and over-criticised while in the planning and construction stage. Many people also find it hard to imagine fully the eventual benefits.

Economists should not look at just the pure returns of operating the ECRL.

There are many spin-offs that will be generated. For one, the value of the land especially near the stations will increase and industries will spring up in those areas.

This means more job and income opportunities for the east coast folk.

UK firms eye rail jobs in Malaysia
By OOI TEE CHING - December 27, 2017 @ 11:59am



Nearly 20 of the United Kingdom’s Railway Industry Association’s 200 members are keen to bid for niche jobs in the light rail transit and construction of the Mass Rapid Transit, East Coast Rail Link and Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail, said its exports director Neil Walker.[NSTP/MOHAMAD SHAHRIL BADRI SAALI]
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: THE UK’s engineering consultants are tendering and hopeful of clinching highly-skilled and specialised rail job packages in Malaysia.

Nearly 20 of its Railway Industry Association’s 200 members are keen to bid for niche jobs in the light rail transit and construction of the Mass Rapid Transit, East Coast Rail Link and Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail, said its exports director Neil Walker.

"We see good prospects in Malaysia for UK companies and our members in sharing rail technology and innovation.

"20 UK delegates joined our trade mission to Malaysia and are keen to bid for projects and supply in the upgrade of Light Rail Transit (LRT) and construction of Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) and the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR)," he said in an interview with NST Business here recently.

“UK engineering companies, including RIA members, can bring in innovation, such as lightweight composites and more energy efficient techniques in railway engineering. We’ve the experience in improving performance and we’re good at working in a high density environment in upgrading existing rail lines. In addition to first rate rail engineering technology we can share, we’re also bringing in skills and academic learning,” he added.

The UK has new HSR colleges and the national skills academies for railway engineering, he said, adding that the Cross Rail project, that links East and West London, has a Tunneling and Underground Construction Academy.

Also present were the UK Department for International Trade business specialist Dr Andrew Hinton, Balfour Beatty technology solutions manager Kevin Fry and SNC-Lavalin (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd associate director of Southeast Asia Brian Blackwell.

Hinton said his agency had recently arranged for senior executives of MyHSR Bhd, Land Public Transport Commission and Prasarana Malaysia Bhd on a study tour to see the recently-upgraded customs, immigration, and quarantine (CIQ) complex at the St Pancras rail station in London.

“The Malaysian delegation wanted to see how the UK’s HSR Link 2 is being operated and look at what we have done at St Pancras, as the interchange for the Eurostar terminus,” he said.

St Pancras International Station is one of the biggest landmarks in London and serves as a gateway to Europe. It is used by 45 million passengers annually and is the UK's home of Eurostar.

Hinton said the seven stations of the KL-Singapore HSR in Malaysia offer great opportunities for UK engineering companies to offer their expertise. “We can look at ways to collaborate with MARIC on delivering the railway projects here.

MARIC is led by Prime Minister's Department's Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology (Might).

MARIC members include Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd, MyHSR Corp Sdn Bhd, Prasarana Malaysia Bhd, Scomi Engineering Bhd, Mass Rapid Transit Corp and MMC-Gamuda Bhd.

“In the area of transit oriented development, we can share our experiences in the economic multiplier effects on the community residing along the Jubilee Line. We’re seeing the benefits of Cross Rail going into the redevelopment of Canary Wharf,” Hinton said.

SNC-Lavalin’s Blackwell said his company had previously offered consulting engineering services in the construction of the LRT 2 here. With such a track record, SNC-Lavalin is well positioned to bid for job packages in the LRT 3, MRT 2 and the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL).

Last week, the governments of Malaysia and Singapore called for a joint tender for an Asset Company (Asset Co) for the bilateral HSR.

Asset Co is responsible for designing, building, financing and maintaining all rolling stock such as trackwork, power, signalling and telecommunications for the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore HSR.

Additionally, Asset Co is in charge of coordinating the system's network capacity for operations and maintenance needs.

In December 2016, the governments of Malaysia and Singapore signed an agreement to build the HSR. Slated to be completed by end-2026, the 350km Kuala Lumpur-Singapore HSR is expected to cut travel time between the two cities to 90 minutes from the current four hours.

Blackwell said British firms are interested to support the consortia which are submitting their tenders for Asset Co in the KL-Singapore HSR.

Balfour Beatty, which had previously worked on the double tracking of Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd’s project a few years ago, is looking to bid for railway construction job packages up on offer.

Balfour Beatty’s Fry said the company’s know-how to leverage on sensors, automated visual inspection in simplifying railway maintenance.

“Railway asset owners can save up to 20 per cent of their usual maintenance costs when they incorporate our system from the beginning,” Fry added.

RM 9 billion Electric Double Tracking Project from Gemas to JB to start by end of January


Shown as contiguous red line in the south.
Quote:
JOHOR BAHRU: Construction work for the Gemas-Johor Bahru electric double-tracking rail project will kick off later this month, with the expansion of Jalan Dewata, Larkin, here, from two to four lanes.

State Public Works, Rural and Regional Development Committee chairman Hasni Mohammad said the rail project, which was due to begin on Jan 1 last year, had to be postponed to make way for land survey and acquisition.

“The new date announced by the transport ministry for the project to commence is Jan 1, 2018, with the construction work to take 48 months, and expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Snipped

He said the RM9.43 billion rail project, handled by China contractors China Railway Construction Corp, China Railway Engineering Corp and China Communication Construction Consortium Sdn Bhd, would also provide opportunities to 150 high-performing Bumiputera contractors.

“Interested local contractors may register their companies with Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd,” Hasni added.

He said the project would cover a distance of 192km and involve 29 overhead bridges and one underpass.

“It will also involve 59 river bridges, 135 drainage and sewerage system areas and 11 pedestrian walkways.
