This new entrance looks to be wider and more spacious than the existing one. Hopefully it will lead to smoother flow of passengers.

183 Penumpang Berdepan Detik Cemas Monorel Rosak Di Tengah Landasan

KUALA LUMPUR, 11 Ogos (Bernama) -- Kira-kira 183 penumpang berdepan detik mencemaskan apabila monorel yang dinaiki rosak dan tersangkut di atas landasan di Brickfields Sabtu.

Jurucakap bilik gerakan Balai Bomba dan Penyelamat Hang Tuah berkata pihaknya menerima panggilan kira-kira 2.18 petang.

"Monorel itu tersangkut berhampiran Stesen Tun Sambanthan sejurus keluar dari stesen tersebut menuju ke Stesen seterusnya, iaitu Maharajalela," katanya ketika dihubungi Bernama.

Beliau berkata seramai 35 anggota bomba dan enam jentera dari Balai Bomba Hang Tuah, Taman Desa, Pantai, Sri Hartamas bergegas ke tempat kejadian selepas menerima panggilan.

"Kami menyelamatkan 63 mangsa menggunakan kren bomba dan selebihnya menggunakan kaedah 'train-to-train evacuation' untuk menolak tren terbabit ke stesen Tun Sambanthan," katanya sambil menambah operasi menyelamat tamat pada kira-kira 4 petang.

Sementara itu, Pengurus Hal Ehwal Media Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad Azhar Ghazali berkata kejadian berlaku pada 1.58 petang ekoran masalah 'traction Control' yang menyebabkan enjin berhenti secara automatik.

"Bagaimanapun, operasi berjalan seperti biasa pada 4.30 petang selepas operasi membaik pulih monorel selesai," katanya.

Beliau berkata seramai tiga penumpang dikejarkan ke Hospital Kuala Lumpur kerana seorang daripada mereka pengsan manakala dua lagi sesak nafas berikutan kejadian itu.

I would say KL Monorail train windows should have emergency air vent that can be opened when the train stalls, so that the condition inside the train won't be too got.

For immediate release
Sunday, 12 August 2012

Media Release

ERP TRAINING HELPS RESCUE EXERCISE OF STRANDED MONORAIL TRAIN

KL StarRail Sdn Bhd, the operator of KL Monorail Services, today said
that the simulation training exercises under its annual Emergency
Response Procedure (ERP) has allowed a smooth rescue operation at
yesterday’s incident in Brickfields which saw 183 passengers stranded
in a monorail train and transferred to safety in a first ever
train-to-train evacuation.

“Clearly, the team benefitted from our ERP training which we conducted
every year with all the relevant agencies – Fire and Rescue
Department, police, hospitals, St John Ambulance and Rela.

“We had yesterday’s situation under control and managed to get
everybody out safely including rushing three passengers requiring
medical attention to HUKL swiftly … We thank God that there were no
casualties and serious injuries,” said Abdul Hadi Amran, the Chief
Operating Officer of KL StarRail Sdn Bhd.

Commenting on yesterday’s incident, Hadi said: “Every year, KL
Monorail and our two LRT Lines of Kelana Jaya and Ampang conduct the
ERPs with relevant rescue agencies in ensuring preparedness for any
cases of emergencies.

“KL Monorail conducted one just three months ago with a similar
scenario of train-to-train evacuation and it involved all the parties
that were there yesterday at the incident. Hence, we had the situation
under control and a smooth rescue operation,” he added.

In his statement, Hadi also defended actions taken by the driver of
the stranded monorail train; declaring that Mohd Faizal Mohd Fahmi
acted with professionalism and in accordance of the Standard Operation
Procedure (SOP).

“We are made to understand that some of the passengers were unhappy
that Faizal did not open the doors to allow fresh air and declined
their calls to break the window … Faizal did the right thing and acted
in true professional manner.

“While we like to record our deepest apology for the incident, we
would like to point out that all trains were checked thoroughly in the
morning before being commissioned out for service.

“We have a standard but comprehensive Minimum Equipment List (MEL)
check for every train before they go out. Only those that passed the
full MEL check-list will be sent out to operate and provide the
services,” he added.

According to Hadi, the incident occurred after the train encountered
problems with its traction power; resulting to malfunctioning of
train’s main and auxiliary power, which then shut down the
air-conditioned system in the train.

Despite the problem, the driver had full communication with the
Control Centre and was able to receive and disseminate information to
the passengers including the forthcoming rescue operations by the Fire
and Rescue personnel.

“With the air-conditioned system down, some of the passengers
requested our driver to open the doors to allow fresh air. Following
advice from the Control Centre, the driver turned down the request.


“This is because the train was on a curve and in slanting position.
Standing at a height of no less than 30 feet, it will be very
dangerous to have the doors especially with the train having almost
full capacity of 183 people. Passengers could easily fall and it could
be fatal.

“To calls for the windows to be broken, the driver was also against
that request upon advice from the Control Centre. This is because in
cases of broken windows, rescue operation through coupling the
stranded train with another train could not take place.

“This is in the interest of safety as the coupling exercise could
cause glasses from the broken window to fly around and could injure
the passengers. Hence, after some of the passengers have broken the
glass window, we have to wait for the Fire and Rescue Department to
undertake the rescue operations.

Hadi also noted that Mohd Faizal is a highly experienced train driver
and was a member of Malaysian Civil Defence Force and is familiar with
CPR procedures.

“While we agree that conditions in the train were hot and stuffy, the
driver acted professionally to immediately activate the fresh air
fan,” Hadi said, adding that immediately after the incident occurred
at 1.58pm, a rescue train was sent to operate the coupling exercise
and tow the stranded train to the Tun Sambathan Monorail Station,
which was less than 80 meters away.

“We fully understand the decision to opt for train coupling to manage
the situation taking into account the short distance between the
stranded train and the Tun Sambathan Station.

“Unfortunately, the immediate coupling exercise could not be
undertaken because the stranded train had its emergency brakes
automatically on. Hence, we had to exercise other options. But, by
then, somebody had already broken the window.

With fire engines from Hang Tuah, Taman Desa, Pantai and Sri Hartamas
fire stations, the fire and rescue personnel started their first phase
of rescue by using ladders and skylifts to bring down 63 passengers to
ease the overcrowding in the train.

“After the 63 passengers were safely brought down, power was
immediately re-installed to allow us to send in another rescue train
and perform train-to-train evacuation, which is something that our
personnel have been trained through various simulation exercises.

“Since we assumed operations in December 2003, this is the first case
of train-to-train evacuation that we have actually undertaken; though
our team and partners are very familiar with it through our simulation
exercises and the ERP,” Hadi said.

On the need to break the windows for fresh air in case of emergencies,
Hadi said that it would be a thing of the past when the new sets of
four-car trains come into operations.

“The new trains will have upper openable windows and emergency
ventilation at the roof as well. The first sets of the new four-car
trains will be delivered to us at the end of the year. Apart from
these facilities, it will also have a larger capacity … hopefully, it
could put an end to our main problem of over-capacity in our monorail
trains,” he added.

The current two-car trains are inherited by KL StarRail Sdn Bhd after
it took over the operations from the previous operator, KL Monorail
Systems Sdn Bhd.

Ghazali at 019-3837865.

'Overload may have caused monorail to stall'


'Overload may have caused monorail to stall'


Kuala Lumpur: Prasarana Negara Berhad, the monorail operator, has been urged to review the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) of its monorail service following the stalling of a train on the Brickfields tracks, last Saturday.

Kuala Lumpur Fire and Rescue Department director, Khirudin Drahman, said Prasarana may have to set a limit on the number of passengers in their trains as the incident may have been caused by an overload.

"They need to review their SOP and view the matter as a whole to prevent such situations. If they need to add coaches, it should be done immediately," he told reporters here today.

In the 2.18 pm last Saturday, about 183 passengers had to be rescued by Fire and Rescue teams when they were trapped in the stalled train on the Brickfields track shortly after it had left the station heading towards Maharajalela.

Three passengers received treatment at the hospital for fainting and breathing difficulties.

Khirudin said neither the relevant equipment in the train nor the remote control system at the monitoring station was able to release the brake system.

"This may be due to the train halting abruptly and it was finally released with the assistance of a Prasarana mechanical team," he said.

Meanwhile, Prasarana Media Affairs manager, Azhar Ghazali, said based on their investigations, there were only 183 passengers at the time of the incident while the maximum load allowed was 214.

He said they discovered that the engine had been automatically stopped due to a "loss of traction power".


"Due to the increase in passengers, we will add two additional coaches by the end of this year," he said when contacted by Bernama. -- Bernama

Overload?
My apartment lift will not close the door if overloaded.

Overload?
I tried so many LRTs/MRTs in some cities, such as notorious overpack Tokyo Metro, Shanghai Metro, Beijing Metro, HK MTR, etc. None of it overloaded...

Perhaps, overdue for maintenance period?
