75km Senai-Desaru Expressway opens today (9th June 2011)

JOHOR BARU: Travelling between southwest and southeast Johor will be faster and more comfortable with the opening of the 75km Senai-Desaru Expressway today.
The highway, costing RM1.4 billion, is one of the biggest infrastructure projects under the Ninth Malaysian Plan in Johor.

It provides an important transportation link to further boost the logistics and tourism sectors in the southern region.


With the highway, travel time is about an hour between Desaru, in the south-east, and the Second Link or Tanjung Pelepas, in the south-west.

This is a stark contrast compared with the 21/2 hours of travelling along the trunk road.

In conjunction with the opening of the new highway, codenamed SDE, motorists will enjoy a toll-free journey for one month from today.


Toll collection will begin from July 10.

Malaysian Highway Authority director-general Datuk Ismail Md Salleh said the highway was partially opened to traffic from Senai to Pasir Gudang last year.

He added the highway was ready with the completion of package three of the project, which linked Cahaya Baru, in Pasir Gudang, and Penawar in Desaru, covering 27km.


The project includes a 4km bridge spanning Sungai Johor.

"The highway will change the skyline of southern Johor.

"It offers another option for commuters who want a hassle-free and fast journey."

It is expected to strengthen the status of Johor Baru as the southern transportation hub for industry players as it provides logistical support for the industrial zones in Pasir Gudang, Senai and Tanjung Pelepas.

For tourism, it is set to revive the status of Desaru, which was once a popular place for beach activities. Its popularity declined because of the long travel time.

Malaysia Tourist Guide Association president Jimmy Leong said Desaru's tourism was severely affected by poor road conditions in the past.

He anticipated a steady growth of tourism activities in Desaru and adjacent areas with the completion of the highway, as well as the launching of the ferry service between the Tanjung Belungkor terminal in Kota Tinggi and Changi terminal in Singapore in April.

"The project will spur the growth in eco and agro-tourism sector."

Johor Lorry Operators Association vice-chairman Leow Hock Tiap said the highway would benefit transport operators travelling from the north to the south as they would have an alternative route to get to Pasir Gudang without having to bypass the city areas.

"This will alleviate congestion along the existing Pasir Gudang Highway.

"However, lorry operators in the south are not affected by the highway as they use an altogether different route to send their consignment."

KL-Kuala selangor Expressway to open this month
By JEEVA ARULAMPALAM Tuesday June 21, 2011
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...2&sec=business


New highway: Amran showing the toll gate to the new highway.

60,000 daily traffic volume seen for new highway
SELAYANG: LATAR Expressway (KL-Kuala Selangor Expressway), to be open to the public before the month ends, will see an initial average daily traffic volume of over 60,000 vehicles.

The concessionaire of the highway, KL-Kuala Selangor Expressway Bhd, is jointly owned by Bina Puri Holdings Bhd and Arena Irama Sdn Bhd.

“For the first 10 years, our projected traffic growth is an average of 5%. The ramp-up period for this expressway will be between seven and nine years,” KL-Kuala Selangor Expressway Bhd chief executive officer Amran Amir said yesterday during a media tour.

The breakeven duration for LATAR Expressway will be between 15 and 20 years.

When asked why the gestation period for the highway was longer than the average gestation of between eight and 10 years for other highways, Amran attributed it to the route alignment of the expressway.

“This is like a Catch 22 whether to build a highway to cater for existing development in an area or to build the highway first to spur development. In this case, it's the latter,” he said.

The highway is expected to boost development along the corridor and create new townships.

“This should bring in new traffic thereafter. Other factors that would bring in new traffic for this highway include the development of the West Coast Highway and the proposed KL Outer Ring Road (KLORR),” said Amran.

LATAR Expressway is a dual carriageway measuring 33km linking KL from Templer's Park in Gombak to Ijok in Kuala Selangor.

“Roughly half of the highway is in the Gombak district while the remaining half is in the Kuala Selangor district. It takes 18 minutes to reach from one end of the highway to the other end,” said Amran.

The expressway comprises four interchanges, at Ijok, Puncak Alam, Kuang and Templer's Park, and toll rates of the highway will be announced by the Works Minister within this week.

The highway serves several townships such as Kuala Selangor, Assam Jawa, Ijok, Bestari Jaya (Batang Berjuntai), Kota Puteri, Puncak Alam, Shah Alam, Bukit Jelutong, Sungai Buloh, Kundang, Rawang and Selayang.

LATAR Expressway is a privatisation project by the Government under the build-operate-transfer system. The concession agreement was awarded in November 1997 but the project did not take off owing to the Asian financial crisis.

A supplementary agreement was then signed in February 2008 for a concession period of 40 years (inclusive of a three-year construction period) with works on the highway having begun October 2008.

The expressway was built at a cost of RM958mil with the company having secured a RM1.04bil loan from Bank Pembangunan Malaysia and the Islamic Development Bank.

NKRA's target for rural basic infrastructure achieved: Shafie
2011/06/21
http://www.nst.com.my/nst/articles/N...hafie/Article/

PUTRAJAYA: The Rural Basic Infrastructure under the National Key Results Area (NKRA) has shown considerable achievement and met the set targets, said Rural and Regional Development Minister Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal.

He said funds for the NKRA this year, which enters the second year of NKRA project implementation, was RM6.657 billion.

"So far, the sectors of road construction, power and electricity supply as well as housing are doing well and meeting our expectations.

"However, there is a small delay in road construction following issues involving land acquisition and such, but we are confident that it will achieve its goal by year end," he told reporters after chairing the Rural Executive

Councilors and Minister Coordination Meeting (MEXCLUB) here today.

He said until May 31 this year, 366.85 kilometres of rural road was already constructed and another 538.27 kilometres was under construction.

Shafie said 4,606 homes were supplied with clean water and 2,346 homes received power supply.

He added under the housing aid programme, 1,079 houses were built or repaired.

Meanwhile, the Rural Transformation Centre (RTC) which aims to link rural residents to activities with high added value is expected to operate this year.

He said the RTC was proposed by the Malaysian Blue Ocean Strategy Institute (MBOSI) under the main initiative of the National Blue Ocean Strategy 4.

Among the activities carried out by the RTC was to continuously sell agriculture products with high added value, obtaining funding facilities and entrepreneurship training or courses. - Bernama

Kaji semula KLORR

Dari utusan malaysia 30/06/2011

Oleh MOHD. HAFIZ ABD. MUTALIB
kota@utusan.com.my

KUALA LUMPUR 29 Jun - Syarikat konsesi projek Lebuh raya Lingkaran Luar Kuala Lumpur (KLORR), Ahmad Zaki Resources Berhad (AZRB) akan mengadakan perbincangan semula sebelum memutuskan sama ada projek tersebut bagi laluan Hulu Langat akan diteruskan atau sebaliknya.

Penasihat UMNO Bahagian Hulu Langat, Abdul Jalil Mohd. Nazir berkata, wakil syarikat terbabit telah turun ke lokasi laluan terbabit semalam untuk meninjau lokasi yang bakal terlibat dengan projek berkenaan.

Ujarnya, pihak pemegang konsesi itu juga akan mencari cadangan laluan alternatif supaya dapat mengelak daripada mengambil tanah yang melibatkan 80 peratus milik penduduk Melayu di kawasan Hulu Langat.

"Pada minggu lalu, penduduk membantah sekeras-kerasnya tindakan untuk mengambil tanah di kawasan mereka kerana ia dilihat tidak membawa banyak kebaikan kepada penduduk, sebaliknya akan lebih menyusahkan mereka," katanya kepada Utusan Malaysia ketika dihubungi di sini hari ini.

Pada Khamis lepas, syarikat konsesi terbabit mengadakan taklimat mengenai projek itu dan ternyata ia mendapat bantahan daripada penduduk Hulu Langat kerana ia akan melibatkan pengambilan tanah orang Melayu.

Pada majlis tersebut, satu memorandum bantahan turut diserahkan kepada pihak syarikat AZRB oleh Ketua UMNO Bahagian Hulu Langat, Datuk Johan Aziz yang mewakili penduduk.

Tambah Jalil, jika projek itu diteruskan dengan cara mengambil tanah orang kampung, ia bakal melenyapkan banyak hak milik penduduk tempatan dan menyusahkan mereka.

Katanya, Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak telah dimaklum mengenai bantahan penduduk itu.

Bina Puri keen to build the 'last mile'
By Sharen KaurPublished: 2011/07/16
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...#ixzz1SKxnVwse



Kuala Lumpur: Bina Puri Holdings Bhd plans to propose building the last section of the Kuala Lumpur Outer Ring Road (KLORR) project for between RM50 million and RM60 million, says a top executive of the company.
The group is preparing to submit a proposal to the Economic Planning Unit (EPU) soon and it will include a plan on how it will complete the last section of KLORR, stretching from Gombak to Karak, its executive director Matthew Tee told Business Times.

"We would be keen to submit our papers for consideration. As we have just completed the Kuala Lumpur-Kuala Selangor Expressway (Latar), it is a logical progression to go for the last piece of the puzzle," he said.

Tee said in building Latar, Bina Puri has established its capability and strengths, enough for the government to consider it for the job.

"With the Latar experience, we have proven ourselves as a capable and highly reliable road builder, therefore a better choice than others.

"We would like to think that we would be given the opportunity to do the stretch between Gombak and Karak," he said.

The 33km Latar forms part of KLORR and connects Ijok near Kuala Selangor to Templer's Park near Rawang.

Latar was built by KL-Kuala Selangor Expressway Bhd (KLS), a 50:50 joint venture between Bina Puri and privately-held company Arena Irama Sdn Bhd, under a build-operate-transfer system for RM958 million.

KLS holds a 40-year concession, starting 2008, to collect tolls on the road which started on June 23.

Latar completed 75 per cent of KLORR, an orbital ring road within the Greater Kuala Lumpur area, which serves as an alternative route to the existing Middle Ring Road 2 already reaching its capacity.

Ahmad Zaki Resources Bhd was given a concession in 2008 to construct a stretch of KLORR from Karak to Hulu Langat for RM300 million.

Scarcity of land is the reason why Singapore insists on KTM surrendering its permanent way, resulting in the loss of railway track to Tanjong Pagar.

So, if land-scarce Singapore can allow for trees and flower-beds in the median between lanes of opposing directions, why not Pahang and Trengganu which had way more empty land?

Look at this, isn't it more pleasant, compare to having just barren tarmac, safety rails and longkang?

Maybe because Singapore is just a small island thus practically, it's easier to maintain the landscape in the middle ?

Malaysia is a huge country with many highways stretch for hundreds of kms, and that explains. Number of traffic using rural highways in Pahang & Terengganu is not as high as "urban" highways in SG, so why need to invest excessively for median landscaping ?

True! It seem some stretches Kelapa sawit is their fav tree for landscaping! If there is one highway that needs extra attention with its landscaping is the ELITE highway all the way to the airport.There are more billboards then trees and flowers.

correct me if my wrong but highway builders prefer not to have anything in the median unless it's necessary for safety.

in us freeways, esp in rural areas, there's no landscaping in the middle to allow loss control vehicles to correct their driving or if that fails, space for the car itself to skid safely.

a good example would be something like below:-



of course, when space is a premium, the always put huge barriers between flows of traffic to prevent trucks from going over:-
