JOHOR BAHRU | Public Transport

I just would like to know whether it is true or real that Malaysian government wanna build a maglev project for the city of Johor Bahru. Got any official announcement about the project? Will the project end up like the construction of the new Causeway, compensating money to the contractor?

I wonder the Maglev project in Johor Bahru will be carried out first or the Penang monorail.

JB monorail to be ready by 2009

By NELSON BENJAMIN

JOHOR BARU: The RM1.3bil Johor monorail project is expected to ferry some 98,000 passengers daily on its 12.5km line along Jalan Tebrau.

The project, which will see all its structures elevated, will have eight stations between Johor Baru Sentral located next to the Causeway and Aeon Jusco near the Pandan Hospital.



Once it is completed by 2009, the project is expected to ease traffic along the congested Jalan Tebrau – known as the street with the highest number of traffic light junctions in the state. There are nine.

Tickets are also expected to be priced competitively from RM1.50 to RM2.60 for the 13-minute ride between Johor Sentral and Aeon Jusco.

The project has been awarded to Johor-based Jalur Mudra Sdn Bhd, a special purpose vehicle created for building and operating the Johor monorail project under the Private Financing Initiative (PFI) of the 9th Malaysia Plan.

Its chairman Datuk Mohd Rashidi Mohd Noor said Jalur Mudra was in the final stages of preparations, including the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report and soil tests.

“We hope to start physical work on the project within the next six to nine months. Our initial work will also include a 2km test line,” he said.

Mohd Rashidi said the pillars to support the two-way glide-way lines will be built on the divider space along Jalan Tebrau.

He said the monorail would run about 6m above the road, and about 50m above where the sections go over a flyover.

Although the locations of the stations have not been finalised, Mohd Rashidi assured the people that the stations would be located strategically next to bus stops and would have ample parking bays.

He said the maglev or magnetic levitation technology from China was efficient as there would not be any noise, friction or smoke emitted from the two coaches which could accommodate about 200 people each.

“People also need not worry about anything falling on them as this technology does not have any wheels or moving parts.

“Even if there is a blackout, the batteries on the train can take it another 6km to the nearest station,” Mohd Rashidi said, adding that the train would be travelling at about 20-30kph.

He said during peak hours from 6am to 9.30am, and from 5pm to 10pm, there would be a train every two minutes. During off-peak hours the interval is four minutes.

“At any one time there will be about eight trains plying the route,” he said, adding that this would greatly help improve the city’s public transport system as people would be assured of prompt service.

Common temperature superconductor medium/low speed magnetic levitating train







Common temperature superconductor medium/low speed magnetic levitating train is a kind of newly developed traffic means. The train is levitated by attractive force existing between levitated electromagnet and track. There is interval filled with air and no contact and no friction between levitated electromagnet and track. The train is driven by linear motor.

The running speed of common temperature superconductor medium/low speed magnetic levitating train is about 120 km/h that is about equal to that of light rail cars and metro cars. It has advantages of lower vibration noise level, higher climbing ability and passing smaller radius of curve. It is an ideal traffic means of comfort and less pollution. It is more suitable for transportation between scenic spots, areas with complex topography, cities, and inside city. So we can say it will be one of important means of urban railway traffic in the coming years.

The method of DC 750V power supply by contact with track is used for common temperature superconductor medium/low speed magnetic levitating train. Power system is composed of auxiliary power supply, control power supply, levitation power supply and traction power supply. There are 4 sets bogie, 8 linear motors and 32 levitated electromagnets per car. Braking mode consists of electric braking and mechanical braking. Communication system consists of WTB ( wired train bus) and MVB (multifunction vehicle bus). Car body is of super light structure of aluminum alloy and aluminum honeycomb connected by riveting and welding. Light and non-pollution materials are used in every part. Long ribbon structure of side window is adopted. The internal decoration of coach is terse, sprightly, suitable and graceful. There are air-conditioner, television system and public announcement system in the whole train. Car body is of streamline structure with strong feeling of popularity, high speed and bright-color.

Performance parameters:
Max. gradient of track: 40%
Max. formation: 8 cars
Transportation ability of one way: 30,000 persons/hour
Length of car body
- leading car: 15,500 mm
- middle car: 14,000 mm
Width of car body: 3,000 mm
Height of car: 3,830 mm (above rail top)
Track gauge: 2,000 mm
Design speed: 150 km/ h
Max. starting acceleration: 1.1 m/s²
Normal braking deceleration: 1.1 m/s²
Emergency braking deceleration: 1.3 m/s²
Braking distance: 120 m (60 km/h)
Tare weight
- leading car: 22t
- middle car: 21t
Seating capacity: 130 persons
Max. levitation force: 36t

I have not been able to find any information on the actual developmental status of the trains. The exterior shot appears to be a computer generated graphic. The interior shots could be of a conventional train. If any member of this forum has more information, please share.

interesting, but why such low speeds? 20-30km/h? is that the average speed or cruising speed?

The 20-30 km/h quoted in the article refers to the speed under back-up battery power. The manufacturer's specifications page refers to an operating speed of 120 km/h.

I do have concerns regarding the developmental status of the trains. It is difficult to go directly from a design on paper (or a computer screen) to a fully functional vehicle. Time is needed for the development and testing of a prototype. This lesson has been demonstrated time and time again. The Old Dominion University maglev system is an example of how badly things can go when there is no prototype testing stage:

Would it be a monorail or a maglev, I'm confused?

Some maglev systems are considered to be monorails:

The system is running on a China test line since 2001, over 6,000 km test runs passed, what you see is the 2nd generation vehicle - a large Malaysia Government delegation took a test ride on the train last month... Yes, the accelerated schedule (city masterplan already provides all the allowances for elevated LRT space) calls for completion by end 2009.

And yes, the company is actively working on a Maglev-based high-speed backbone for the KL-JB-SG 350 km link - it was publicly stated in the press.

More information might be unveiled at MAGLEV 2006 in Dresden.

Johor Bahru – Singapore RTS Link to use metro technology
13 Dec 2016



ASIA: Following their annual retreat, on December 13 Prime Minister of Malaysia Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak and his Singaporean counterpart Lee Hsien Loong welcomed the progress which the bilateral Transportation Links Work Group has made with the developing proposals for the Johor Bahru-Singapore Rapid Transit System Link between their countries.

The RTS Link would connect Bukit Chagar and Johor Bahru in Malaysia with Woodlands North in Singapore, where passengers would transfer to Singapore’s future Thomson-East Coast metro line. The RTS Link is intended to improve regional connectivity and reduce congestion at the border crossings
