RM20b for 10MP projects
19 SEPTEMBER 2014 @ 12:29 AM
http://www.nst.com.my/node/34819

KUALA LUMPUR: Some RM20 billion worth of construction works for new highways under the 10th Malaysia Plan (10MP) are expected to commence next year pending final approval, said Works Minister Datuk Fadillah Yusof.

Fadillah said the projects in the peninsula have received the approval from the ministry and are in the final stage of commencement.

“The projects need to comply with certain conditions before commencement, including environmental perspective, public consultation as well as technical and financial evaluation which could take about 12 months to complete,” he said.

“Although some of the projects were announced a while ago, planning and approval processes usually take one to two years to get the projects on the ground after announcemant,” he said at the International Construction Week 2014, here, yesterday.

There are seven new highways under the plan, including the Kuala Lumpur Outer Ring Road, the Kinrara–Damansara Expressway, the Damansara-Shah Alam Elevated Expressway and the West Coast Expressway.

Kuala Lumpur has an incredible network of expressways, probably one of the densest urban expressway networks in the world (after Tehran perhaps).

The downside of a very dense network is that congestion quickly spreads to other expressways because the nodes are so close to each other. They key is to find a balance between capacity and network density, but urban and geographic constraints often dictate a less-than-optimal model.

As a former Singapore resident, I've got 3 questions:
1) Is the speed on Malaysian motorways still limited to 110km/h?
2) Is it enforced as harshly as in Singapore? Or is it still like around 20 years ago?
3) Are there any projects to make a shortcut from the Desaru zone to the Changi airport zone (SGP) via Pengerang? As I remember, a lot of Singaporeans drive to Desaru to the beach
4) How is the construction of the Pan-Borneo highway in Sarawak/Sabah?

"Richtgeschwindigkeit" should be the default system in all EU motorways & expressways & lane indiscipline should be harshly fought! Down with radars on motorways!

1) Depends on which expressway you are on and which section (example :Butterworth NSE <E1> stretch allows up to 90, however the rest of the expressway are mostly 110)

2)Depends on the period of the year, however there are more speed cams nowadays (Example : CNY ,the polis send lots of them to isolated places like the rest stops to speed trap)

3)planned, but seemed scarped

BTW a Singaporean here too!

I've already noticed that & ... I've noticed that contrary to what happens in the South of peninsular Malaysia (where Singapore's Woodlands & Tuas are signed), no Thai city is signed in Northern Malaysia. Is it that difficult to cross that border?

EDIT: there are some places where Thai villages or cities are signed. Very strangely, it happens nowhere on the North-South expressway ... even here - this sign is very ... Spanish (indicates the neighboring country instead of a city or a town in it)

RM76b boost for highway, rail sector
BY SHAREN - 11 OCTOBER 2014 @ 1:25 AM
http://www.nst.com.my/node/41673

BETTER PUBLIC TRANSPORT: Second MRT line, Pan-Borneo Highway and third LRT link among proposed projects

HIGHWAY and railway developers have received a RM76 billion boost with several projects being lined up to start next year.

Topping the list of new projects are Line 2 of the Klang Valley My Rapid Transit (KVMRT), the RM27 billion Pan-Borneo Highway and the third line for light rail transit (LRT).

The construction of the 1,663km Pan-Borneo Highway — 936km in Sarawak and 727km in Sabah — will kick off next year, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak during the tabling of 2015 Budget, here, yesterday.

Several new highway projects will also commence in the Klang Valley, he added.

They include the 59km Sungai Besi-Ulu Klang Expressway (RM5.3 billion), the 276km West Coast Expressway from Taiping to Banting (RM5 billion), the 47km Damansara-Shah Alam Highway (RM4.2 billion) and the 36km Eastern Klang Valley Expressway (RM1.6 billion).

For railway projects, Najib said the 56km KVMRT Line 2, costing an estimated RM23 billion, will run from Selayang to Putrajaya.

Line 1 of the KVMRT links Sungai Buloh and Kajang, and has a projected cost of RM30 billion, which includes RM23 billion for systems and construction, and RM7 billion for consultant fees and reimbursables.

For the LRT project, a new line costing an estimated RM9 billion will be built to link Bandar Utama to Shah Alam and Klang.

The upgrading of KTM Bhd’s east-coast railway line along Gemas-Mentakab, Jerantut-Sun-gai Yu and Gua Musang-Tumpat will also take place at a total cost of RM150 million.

To further improve the public transport system, the government will provide Electric Train Service from Ipoh to Butterworth starting April next year.

The target is to raise the public transport modal share to 25 per cent by 2015 and 50 per cent by 2020.
