Your ranting doesnt make sense to me at all..

Why not you suggest all roads r concrete pavement just because there are heavy vehicles using them?

I can tell you most of the potholes tht keep occuring at the same route has nothing to do with heavy vehicles. The problem lies with the wrong method of pavement, be it intentionally or unintentionally.

New terminal not big enough
Story and photos by STUART MICHAEL


THE new Rawang bus and taxi terminal is ready but residents and bus operators say it is not big enough to cater to the large number of buses and taxis plying the area.

The terminal built in Rawang new town to cope with the higher number of public transport vehicles has yet to be used but those in the industry say it is not adequate.

The current terminal, which cost RM8mil, will replace the 60-year-old old bus station in Jalan Maxwell.


Ready but not in use: The new Rawang bus and taxi terminal in Bandar Baru Rawang.

A Rawang station bus operator known as Seng, who operates the uptown mini-buses and Sri Jaya bus, said it was not feasible for the bus station to be relocated to the new terminal.

“The place will be congested and commuters will have to walk further.

“At present, there are 115 Sri Jaya buses and 20 mini-buses with only six parking bays available at the new terminal.


An obstruction: Sri Jaya, Metro and uptown mini-buses parked in Jalan Maxwell, Rawang, blocking traffic heading to Kuala Lumpur

“This is besides the 60 Metro buses that also service commuters in Rawang.

“The mini-buses ply areas like Ulu Yam, Bukit Sentosa, Masalam, Taman Tun Teja, Kuala Garing and Bandar Country Homes. The Sri Jaya buses travel from Rawang to Kuala Lumpur.

“The best solution is for Sri Jaya and Metro buses to be stationed at the new terminal while the mini-buses continue to use the old bus station. If the new terminal was bigger than it would not be a problem,’’ he said.

StarMetro visited the site and found that only six parking bays were available for express buses and another six bays for mini-buses at the new bus station.

However. there are ample parking bays and waiting areas for taxis.

Retiree Mohd Rahman Karip, 57, who commutes from Rawang to Kuala Lumpur by bus twice a week, said it was ridiculous that buses had to be stationed at two separate areas.

“The authorities should think about the commuters’ convenience. Many old people like me travel by bus and we cannot walk about half a kilometre to take a bus.

“The new bus and taxi terminal should be centralised,” he said.

Madhu Marimuthu, a resident of Bandar Country Homes in Rawang for 12 years, said the bus company would lose out if there were fewer passengers.

“Without enough parking bays, buses have to wait a while and this will cause a traffic jam in the area.

“However, I love the idea of the bus station being centralised and express buses and mini-buses moving there in stages,’’ he said.

Another resident, who wished to be known as only Alagendran, from Taman Rawang Perdana 2, said there must be proper planning.

“I hope that the Selayang Municipal Council has a systematic plan for the bus station.” he said.

Inilah perhentian bas kami

Oleh ROSLAH OTHMAN
kota@utusan.com.my



Pengguna terpaksa berdiri dan berteduh di bawah pokok atau gerai untuk menunggu bas di Bandar Puchong Utama berikutan ketiadaan kemudahan perhentian bas yang sempurna. - utusan/Abdul Nazir Mohamed

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



PUCHONG 1 Sept. - Kepadatan penduduk yang semakin meningkat di Bandar Puchong Utama di sini sejak kebelakangan ini telah menyebabkan keperluan kepada pengangkutan awam turut meningkat.

Rangkaian Pengangkutan Integrasi Deras Sdn. Bhd. (RapidKL) yang memahami keperluan penduduk di situ telah menawarkan perkhidmatan pengangkutan awam di kawasan tersebut.

Usaha RapidKL itu memang sangat dihargai oleh penduduk tetapi apa yang mendukacitakan ialah ketiadaan perhentian bas yang sempurna dan selesa.

Keadaan itu telah mengundang rasa kecewa pengguna pengangkutan awam berkenaan kerana mereka terpaksa berdepan dengan keadaan panas dan hujan ketika menunggu bas di situ.

Selain itu, kadangkala mereka perlu berdiri lama sementara menunggu bas sampai. Jika letih, mencangkung adalah pilihan yang ada bagi melegakan pinggang.

Mujur juga ada pokok besar dan beberapa gerai di situ yang boleh dijadikan kawasan berlindung daripada panas.

Bukan sebulan dua masalah tersebut dihadapi oleh penduduk di situ, sebaliknya sudah dihadapi sejak empat tahun lalu.

Tinjauan Utusan Malaysia mendapati, lokasi tersebut tidak membayangkan langsung sebuah perhentian bas sedangkan ia antara nadi utama kepada pengguna bas RapidKL untuk ke mana-mana destinasi termasuk ibu negara.

Hanya kelihatan sebuah pondok yang berbumbung dan berdindingkan kanvas

Turut kelihatan ialah bangku kayu dan sofa usang yang sering digunakan oleh pemandu untuk melepaskan lelah.

Difahamkan, terdapat 15 buah bas RapidKL beroperasi di situ melibatkan perkhidmatan tempatan di kawasan perumahan manakala perkhidmatan ke pusat bandar melibatkan 11 buah bas.

Salah seorang pemandu RapidKL yang enggan dikenali berkata, begitulah keadaan perhentian bas itu sejak mereka memulakan operasi empat tahun lalu.

Memandangkan ketiadaan tempat untuk berteduh, mereka mengambil inisiatif membina sendiri pondok berkenaan untuk berlindung daripada panas dan hujan.

Difahamkan bukan sahaja pemandu bas, malah pengguna pengangkutan awam di kawasan itu juga turut menjadikan pondok berkenaan sebagai tempat berteduh.

Megawati P. Arunasalem, 41, berkata, ketiadaan kemudahan itu menyebabkan dia termasuk pengguna lain juga terpaksa berteduh di gerai berhampiran.

Dia yang tinggal di Pulau Meranti itu turut menyarankan pihak berkuasa segera menyediakan kemudahan tersebut demi keselesaan dan keselamatan pengguna.

"Kami hairan, sepatutnya di tempat sebegini, sekurang-kurangnya sebuah pondok perhentian bas sudah dibina, namun sehingga kini masih tidak dibina,'' ujarnya.

Warga emas, Loo Mee, 75, pula berkata, sepatutnya pihak bertanggungjawab menyediakan tempat menunggu bas yang lebih selesa dan sempurna kepada pengguna.

Katanya, sebagai warga emas, ia sesuatu yang amat menyulitkan setiap kali hendak ke mana-mana.

"Biasanya saya tidak akan keluar jika ada tanda-tanda hari hendak hujan,'' ujarnya yang akan membawa payung setiap kali keluar sebagai persediaan.

Bagi Halimah Said, 57, pula, perhentian itu bukan lagi asing baginya kerana sering berkunjung ke rumah anaknya yang tinggal di kawasan itu.

Bagaimanapun, dia agak terkejut kerana kawasan berkenaan tidak disediakan perhentian bas yang selesa dan sempurna berbanding tempat tinggalnya di Kampung Medan yang lebih selesa dan sempurna.

"Saya berasa ia perlu disediakan untuk kemudahan penduduk di taman perumahan di sini kerana jumlah bas dan pengguna yang ramai," ujarnya.

Bagi Satish Dharmalingan, 26, selain di situ, kekurangan pondok menunggu bas di taman-taman perumahan berhampiran juga dilihat sebagai masalah yang perlu diatasi segera.

"Saya sering tersentuh melihat penduduk terpaksa berpanas dan berhujan ketika menunggu bas, lebih-lebih lagi warga emas dan ibu mengandung,'' ujarnya.

Dia yang akan berpindah ke Taman Putra Impiana tidak lama lagi itu meminta pihak bertanggungjawab melakukan sesuatu demi memastikan keselesaan rakyat.

Utusan Malaysia difahamkan, sudah banyak kali aduan dikemukakan kepada pihak berkaitan termasuk pihak pengurusan RapidKL, Majlis Perbandaran Subang Jaya (MPSJ) dan pemaju namun sehingga ke hari ini tiada apa-apa perubahan berlaku.

Dalam hal ini, pihak berkuasa tempatan sepatutnya prihatin terhadap masalah seperti itu kerana ia melibatkan keselesaan dan keselamatan orang ramai.

"Tidak perlu bercerita mengenai bagaimana untuk meningkatkan kualiti perkhidmatan pengangkutan awam, jika perkara asas seperti ini tidak diberi perhatian," kata penduduk di situ.

Kaji semua pemindahan bas ekspres ke Terminal 2

SEREMBAN 2 Sept. - Peniaga di Terminal Satu buntu kerana bakal kehilangan pelanggan. Pengusaha syarikat bas ekspres juga begitu. Orang awam pula merungut tidak puas hati.

Nyata arahan Lembaga Perlesenan Kenderaan Perdagangan (LPKP) supaya semua syarikat bas ekspres memindahkan lokasi ke Terminal Dua, kira-kira satu kilometer dari Terminal Satu bulan ini memeningkan kepala semua pihak orang awam, peniaga dan pengusaha bas.

Malahan hari ini kerajaan negeri juga secara terbuka menyatakan tidak bersetuju, jika semua bas ekspres dipindahkan ke Terminal Dua dan tindakan itu tidak menggambarkan kepentingan orang awam didahulukan.

Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan berkata, beliau telah mengarahkan Setiausaha Kerajaan Negeri, Datuk Mat Ali Hassan berunding di peringkat pegawai bersama LPKP serta merta supaya mempertimbangkan kepentingan orang awam sebelum membuat sebarang keputusan muktamad.

''Kerajaan negeri melihat perpindahan operasi bas ekspres di Terminal Dua akan hanya menyukarkan orang awam selain menjejaskan masa hadapan peniaga di Terminal Satu," kata beliau selepas mempengerusikan mesyuarat Exco di sini hari ini.

Mohamad berkata, walaupun begitu kerajaan negeri masih berlembut dengan membenarkan syarikat bas ekspres ke pantai Timur dan Utara beroperasi di Terminal Dua ketika ini.

''Kerajaan telah menyediakan rangkaian hubungan yang baik di antara Stesen Keretapi Seremban ke Terminal Satu melalui laluan beratap dan terowong pejalan kaki.

''Saya tidak boleh membayangkan, bagaimana kalau semua bas ekspres berpindah ke Terminal Dua, orang awam yang tiba dengan keretapi atau komuter mengheret beg mereka ke Terminal Dua sejauh hampir satu kilometer itu.

''Kemudian apabila penumpang turun ke Terminal Dua, terpaksa pula mengheret beg mereka ke Terminal Satu untuk mendapatkan bas henti-henti. Ini menyusahkan orang awam," tegas Mohamad.

Beliau juga menjelaskan jika bas ekspres Seremban-Kuala Lumpu yang sekarang beroperasi di Terminal Satu berpindah ke Terminal Dua, implikasi buruk akan berlaku dan sudah tentulah ia akan menimbulkan rasa tidak puas hati di kalangan pengguna dan orang awam.

''Saya berharap LPKP berunding semula dengan kerajaan negeri. Ini bukan soal seronok pindah ke tempat baru. Ini soal kepentingan orang awam. Buat apa berpindah jika menimbulkan banyak masalah kemudian hari.

''Orang akan mula benci dengan sikap kerajaan dan menyalahkan kerajaan kerana membuat keputusan tanpa meneliti kepentingan orang awam. Kita telah kaji dan bertemu dengan pengguna, peniaga dan pengusaha syarikat bas, mereka lebih selesa di Terminal Satu sekarang ini," tegas beliau.

Ditanya apakah ada arahan berpindah oleh LPKP, Mohamad berkata ia telah dibuat secara lisan dan bertulis kepada semua pengusaha syarikat bas ekspres ketika ini.

''Selepas di kaji, Majlis Perbandaran Seremban (MPS) telah menulis surat kepada LPKP dan menyatakan keputusan itu tidak praktikal. Sebab itulah kita mahu ia dibincangkan semula secara serius serta merta," kata Mohamad.

Kata beliau, jangan nanti 'untungnya secupak, tetapi ruginya segantang' kerana sikap membelakangkan kepentingan orang awam dalam membuat sebarang keputusan.

LPKP merupakan agensi yang bertanggungjawab terhadap pemberian lesen, lokasi operasi, tempat menurunkan penumpang serta laluan bas, manakala pihak berkuasa tempatan mengizinkan pembinaan struktur bangunan untuk dijadikan stesen bas.

Dalam hal ini, LPKP sebelum ini telah meluluskan Terminal Satu di sini dijadikan lokasi hentian dan menurunkan penumpang bagi semua jenis perkhidmatan bas dan mereka juga hari ini mempunyai kuasa mengarahkan bas ekspres berpindah ke Terminal Dua dengan alasan kesesakan berlaku di lokasi sedia ada.

RM100,000 spent to upgrade terminal
Story and photo by SALINA KHALID


COMMUTERS using the bus services at the intercity terminal in Section 17, Shah Alam now have a proper place to wait for the buses.

Shah Alam mayor Mazalan Md Noor said the city council had spent about RM100,000 to upgrade the bus terminal recently.

“We upgraded the internal road system at the terminal which included interlocking tiles at the bays for the buses.

“Three new bus shelters have also been constructed at the terminal for the convenience of the passengers.


Meant to be a temporary measure: The bus terminal in Section 17.

“They don’t have to wait under the hot sun anymore as the shelters have ample room for them to sit while waiting for the bus,” he said.

The bus terminal provides express bus services to passengers heading to the east coast and northern parts of the country.

Its location near the Federal Highway is convenient for passengers in the city, especially students from the UiTM main campus in Shah Alam as they can take the bus here instead of going all the way to Puduraya or the Klang Bus terminal to do so.

However, when it was built several years ago, it was meant to be a temporary stop for the express buses.

There was however, a rising number of passengers using the service, especially during the festive season and during school holidays.

“The bus terminal in Section 17 was not built properly and is not big enough to cater to the high volume of passengers.

“So it is timely to upgrade the place while waiting for a proper bus terminal in Section U1 to materialise.

“Once the integrated bus terminal in Section U1 is open, then the Sect 17 terminal will serve as a station for local stage buses serving the city area,” said Mazalan.

Work on the integrated bus terminal in Section U1 is expected to begin at the end of the year and would take about two years.

The first phase is estimated to cost about RM20mil.

Under the first phase, costing RM20mil, 45 bays (for the buses) would be provided for bus companies to operate in the complex.

The three-storey complex would also have ticketing counters, retail and food outlets on the first floor.

The car park and drop off points will be located on the second floor.

The second phase will include a pedestrian crossing from the terminal to the Commuter Station situated across the Federal Highway.

The site was chosen as it is located near Stadium Shah Alam and the indoor stadium.

The site is also easily accessible from the Federal Highway and the NKVE.

With the opening of the terminal, the express buses do not have to enter the city centre, thus easing traffic congestion.

Now we know why Klang Sentral has been closed down...it's a piece of krap!

Terminal illness

KLANG: It has only been nine months since the multi-million ringgit Klang Sentral bus terminal in Jalan Meru began operations but it is already riddled with problems.


A waste of funds, Terminal B was closed down following complaints from the public that it was too far from town. — Pictures by R. Anbu


Apart from its unsuitable location which has raised the ire of commuters, cracks have been appearing on the terminal building which is also said to be sinking.


CAK president A. Devadass pointing at the cracks at Terminal B.


Cracks have exposed the embedded iron rods.

The structural defects are said to be affecting both terminal A, which is currently being used for express bus services, and terminal B, which was meant for stage buses but is no longer in use following complaints from the public that it was too far from town.

The Consumer Association of Klang (CAK) is urging the Selangor government to temporarily shut down both terminals and conduct a thorough investigation.

CAK president A. Devadass said the state government should form an independent body to investigate the cause of the defects found in the building which had been dogged by controversy since it began operations.

The state’s Select Committee on Competence, Accountability and Transparency (Selcat) has also been urged to investigate how approval was given for the project.

“Selcat should investigate the numerous problems surrounding the building such as its unsuitable location, the high-tension electric cables nearby and the high pressure gas pipeline passageway located close to the terminal,” said Devadass.

He said he had lodged a report at the Klang police station against Klang Municipal Council (MPK) president Mislan Tugiu last year for issuing the certificate of fitness for the Klang Sentral bus terminal building despite objections and protests from the public.

“I believe that the certificate of fitness was given in haste as the MPK had not carried out a thorough inspection of the terminal buildings, including the danger of building a road over a high pressure gas pipeline passageway.”

Devadass said the authorities had also failed to take into account the high-tension cables near the terminals.

“What happens if the terminal catches fire or a bus bursts into flames?”

He said it was shocking that the building was sinking only nine months after it the terminal was opened.

“I found gaping holes as long as 10cm between the foot of the wall and the floor.

“Even iron rods embedded in the concrete building had been exposed due to the cracks appearing on the building.”

Devadass said express buses which used terminal A every day would only cause the building to sink further.

“Attempts by the developer to carry out repairs on the buildings have failed as cracks started to appear on the same spot after the repairs had been carried out.”

Devadass said he found out that the developer had signed a 30-year concessionaire agreement with MPK to build and operate the terminal.

“But what is puzzling is that the agreement has not been made public despite numerous requests from NGOs and elected representatives,” he said.

The terminal was built at a cost of RM12.4 million.

Arrrrrrrggggggggghhhhhhhhh!!!!!

THE shutters have finally come down at Terminal B of the ill-fated Klang Sentral after nine months. The only shop that was operating within Terminal B closed when the terminal was closed two months ago.

The terminal looks like a ghost town — an apt description as the deserted building has no passengers and no bus operators. No one was around.

It was said that Terminal B had been sold to an inter-State bus company operator and would reopen in October but the Klang Municipal Council brushed this off as “a rumour”.

Malay Mail visited Klang Sentral yesterday and it was a sorry sight. Only Terminal A, the terminal that caters for outstation buses, is operational and buzzing with activity.

However, traders at Terminal A are still finding it hard to make ends meet.

“We are only catering for the inter-State bus passengers. We are barely making money. We can only hope for local buses to move back here like how it was initially planned,” said Akhbar, a newsstand operator.

The controversial Klang Sentral opened its doors for operations last November — and nothing much has changed. The RM12 million terminal along Jalan Meru has been the subject of controversy as many residents in Klang complain of its location which is too far from town.

Until today, all bus operators, including RapidKL, are adamant they will not use Klang Sentral due to its poor location and the lack of passengers.

The Klang Sentral bus terminal also created a rift between Kapar MP S. Manikavasagam and Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim that saw Manikavasagam handing in his resignation letter.

The first-term MP stayed on after Khalid promised to look into the matter personally. But meeting after meeting has not found any solution.

The Klang Municipal Council is also clueless on how to resolve the issue and is seemingly powerless as well. Many bus operators initially expressed their displeasure at the relocation, saying that it added to operational costs and was “a waste of time”.

Bus operators in Klang Sentral are charged RM900 monthly rental compared with just RM150 at the former Klang bus terminal.

Chronology of Klang Sentral

May 13 — Six months since the controversial Klang Sentral opened its doors for operations nothing much has changed. Malay Mail visited Klang Sentral and it was a sorry sight. Only Terminal A that caters to outstation buses was fully operational with lots of people. Terminal B, on the other hand, looked like a ghost town. Within
the terminal, there is only one newsstand. At 1.30pm, this reporter was the first customer of the day and the shop had been open since morning.

April 23 — Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim pledged to solve the Klang Sentral fiasco by next month.

April 22 — RapidKL decided to cease its operations at the RM12 million terminal in Meru, moving back to the Bandar Klang terminal in the town centre.

April 20 — The Klang Municipal Council is sticking by the various bus routing changes announced when Klang Sentral was opened to replace the old bus terminal.

April 6 — Traders near the old Klang town bus station expressed frustration after their businesses had gone from bad to worse since the bus station was moved to Klang Sentral. Traders claimed that business plunged by more than half.

Feb 20 — Bus operators were still operating from the old terminal in the middle of Klang town, causing traffic congestion. Many passengers at the old bus terminal said certain bus operators had refused to use the new terminal and continued to pick-up and drop-off passengers at the old terminal.

Feb 13 — Klang MP Charles Santiago offered to mediate between the Klang Sentral management, bus companies, traders and consumer groups to resolve various problems plaguing the new terminal.

Jan 16 — Many bus operators refused to move to the spanking new bus terminal, stating that it would increase cost of operations.

Dec 27, 2008 — Stage and express bus companies and taxi operators start operations from the new bus terminal.

Public transport must be kept clean


THE recent spread of the H1N1 virus in Malaysia, with a number of deaths, has caught the attention of many Malaysians.

The virus is spread by droplets and can be picked up by touching contaminated surfaces.

Since a large number of people travel daily around the Klang Valley using public transport, one wonders what precautions bus and train operators are taking to help prevent transmission of the H1N1 virus.

After all, masks do nothing to prevent surface-to-surface transmission. And people using public transport are often in close proximity, of less than 1.5m (within the zone of transmission), and touch a variety of surfaces (ticket vending machines, grab bars, seats, doors) during their daily travels.

Of course people should continue using public transport but they should take precautions like using a handkerchief when touching surfaces and washing their hands frequently with soap.

Unfortunately, I have not seen an increased effort to keep stations and the public transport vehicles extra clean.

Besides organising charity events for victims of natural disasters, public transport operators should also hold campaigns to educate the public on the wisdom of good hygiene.

It is not just for the benefit of the public - it makes good business sense too. RapidKL, KTMB and other public transport operators should be proactive, because if people start to get more worried about H1N1, they will avoid the crowded trains and buses.

JPJ wujud terminal khas bas tambahan
KOTA BHARU 7 Sept. - Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan (JPJ) Kelantan menyediakan terminal khas untuk bas ekspres tambahan ketika mengambil dan menurunkan penumpang sepanjang musim perayaan Aidilfitri tahun ini.

Pengarah JPJ neger,i Abdul Ghani Che Kassim berkata, terminal khas itu bagi mengelakkan kesesakan jalan di kawasan bandar berikutan bilangan bas dijangka bertambah pada musim perayaan ini berbanding tahun lepas.

Beliau berkata, terminal khas yang dicadangkan JPJ dengan kerjasama pihak berkuasa kerajaan tempatan itu terletak di bandar baru Pasir Tumbuh, di sini berkuat kuasa seminggu sebelum dan selepas hari raya.

Dalam perkembangan berkaitan, beliau berkata, JPJ akan mewujudkan sebuah Stesen Pemeriksaan Kenderaan bagi memeriksa kenderaan berat, termasuk lori dan treler di Bukit Yong, sempadan Kelantan/Terengganu.

Abdul Ghani berkata, mulai semalam pihaknya mengadakan operasi penguatkuasaan terhadap semua kenderaan pengangkutan awam bagi melancarkan pergerakan lalu lintas.

"Ini termasuk memastikan bas ekspres membawa pemandu kedua bagi mengelakkan mereka terdedah kepada bahaya kemalangan.

Kami akan membuat pemeriksaan bagi memastikan bas mempunyai pemandu kedua di terminal sebelum dibenarkan berlepas ke destinasi masing-masing," katanya. - Bernama

Larkin Sentral

Setakat ini, sebanyak tiga fasa pengubahsuaian telah dilaksanakan ke atas Larkin Sentral yang mengandungi dua blok iaitu Blok Terminal Pengangkutan Awam dan Blok Pasar Awam.

Katanya, sebanyak RM3.7 juta dibelanjakan dalam pengubahsuaian fasa I bagi tempoh 2004 hingga 2007.

Jelasnya, sebaik diambil alih JCorp melalui anak syarikatnya, TPM Management Sdn. Bhd. (TPM Management) pada tahun lalu, Blok Terminal melalui pengubahsuaian fasa II dengan kos RM6.8 juta bagi membina bangunan tambahan di tingkat tiga termasuk membina Masjid An-Nur dan menaik taraf tempat letak kereta.

"Ketika ini, Larkin Sentral melalui pengubahsuaian fasa III membabitkan kos RM8.9 juta bermula tahun ini yang dijangka siap tahun depan membabitkan kerja menyediakan lif, ubah suai medan selera, menambah eskalator, membina jejantas dan memasang sistem litar kamera tertutup (CCTV).

"Pengubahsuaian fasa IV pula akan bermula 2011 serta dijangka siap pada 2013 membabitkan kerja menaik taraf bazar dan terminal, penyusunan semula platform dan keluar masuk bas supaya lebih tersusun dengan kos RM28 juta," katanya.

Kelantan JPJ To Provide Terminal For Addition Express Buses
September 07, 2009 15:27 PM

KOTA BAHARU, Sept 7 (Bernama) -- A special terminal for additional express buses will be provided by the Kelantan Road Transport Department (JPJ) in Pasir Tumbuh new town near here a week before and a week after Aidilfitri.

Its director, Abdul Ghani Che Kassim, said this was to reduce traffic congestion in the state capital during the festive season.

"The traffic jam in Kota Baharu will be worse if we were to allow additional express buses to enter the town," he told Bernama.

He said the JPJ launched a crackdown on public transports yesterday in an effort to reduce accidents involving buses and taxis.

"Express buses without second drivers were stopped from leaving the terminal while each driver was not allowed to drive for more than four hours or 300km in a single journey," he added.

In another development, he said the JPJ would set up a commercial vehicle inspection station in Bukit Yong at the border of Kelantan and Terengganu.

A NEW intercity bus terminal called Wan’s Terminal will be built by the end of the year in Jalan PJU 10/4 in Damansara Damai, Petaling Jaya.

The RM1.9mil project also includes 32 shops, which will be built to control the number of road side hawkers in the area.

The project will be carried out by Medan Prestasi Sdn Bhd, a company under MK Land Holdings Bhd for the convenience of the local communities.

The terminal will play host to Metro, RapidKL, Selangor Omnibus and SJ buses from Damansara Damai to Kuala Lumpur.

It is situated near several schools, housing, commercial and industrial areas and caters to about 90,000 people in Damansara Damai.

The Damansara Damai area consist of a mixed-development project of homes, condominiums and commercial lots, all developed by Medan Prestasi.

So far about 14,000 units of property have been sold.

MK Land executive chairman Tan Sri Mustapha Kamal said it would be a vital transportation hub for the locals.

“The area has growth potential to become fully developed and today it is a complementary development.

“Nobody asked us to build the terminal but we wanted to create a win-win situation for everybody,” he said.

Mustapha said in the late 1990s, they had signed an agreement with the state government to build 50,000 affordable, low-medium and medium-cost houses.

“The project was carried out during two recession periods and we have proved that it is recession-proof.

“The homes are a source of income for the local authorities and have helped resolve the squatter problems in the state,” he said.

Mustapha also spoke about the company’s new venture in Bangalore, India, which is a mixed-development project with an estimated gross development value of RM3bil.

Medan Prestasi is also planning to launch a few development projects in the Damansara Damai area consisting of condominiums and mixed development.


Meanwhile, MK Land has spent RM1.9 million to set up the bus terminal in Damansara Damai known as Wan's Central. The terminal is to provide transportation facilities in the township with a population of more than 90,000.

Along with the bus terminal, there will be also 32 affordable shop units specially built for local retailers and traders.

A systematic approach will be taken to build the shop units to allow proper traffic flow along the roads.

The Damansara Damai housing estate developed by Medan Prestasi is a housing scheme under the Selangor government privatisation project.

The project encompasses 75 per cent low-cost and middle-cost homes as well as other properties including condominiums and commercial lots.

Among the bus companies which will operate at the 0.5ha bus terminal due for completion in November are Selangor Omnibus, Rapid KL and Metrobus.

Todate, more than 14,000 properties worth RM1.2 billion have been sold.

Prestasi also has on its planning board projects with gross development value of RM782 million.

The projects include the Seasons Square Block A condominium worth RM115 million and the Armanee Block D condominium worth RM88 million. - Bernama

Facelift for Larkin bus terminal
Tuesday September 15, 2009
By DESIREE TRESA GASPER and KC CHAN

JOHOR BARU: The Larkin Bus Terminal’s massive RM46.6mil facelift is expected to be completed in four years time.

Local Government, Housing, Arts, Culture and Heritage Committee chairman Datuk Ahmad Zahri Jamil said the renovation was being carried out in phases.

“So far, two phases have been completed.

“Work on the third phase is ongoing now, involving the construction of a pedestrian bridge and new public toilets and installation of CCTV cameras,” he said.

It is expected to be completed by the year end.

The fourth phase, meanwhile, amounts to RM28mil. It will include additional bus platforms and a new systematic entry point for buses.

With the facelift, the terminal would be renamed Larkin Central and equipped with 63 new seats for passengers who are waiting for buses, Ahmad Zahri told the Johor state assembly here.

The comprehensive makeover for the bus terminal began in 2004 with general renovation work in the first phase which took three years.

The second phase included the construction of a three-storey building, a mosque and new parking lots.

Ahmad Zahri addressed the issue of constant rental increase by Johor Corporation, saying that he would look into the complaints from traders.

“I admit that there has been an increase in rental every time the terminal is renovated.

“I will have a discussion with Johor Corporation to ask that they take into consideration the small-time traders when it comes to raising the rent,” he elaborated.

Osman Sapian (BN - Kempas) had earlier posed a question, explaining that many traders were complaining about the increasing rental cost and snatch thefts at the bus terminal.

In June, traders located on the third floor of the terminal had voiced concerns about losing business due to unfair competition by food vendors on the ground level of the complex.

According to them, the initial tenancy agreement did not permit any food outlet at the lower levels.

The traders at the terminal submitted a memorandum in July stating their dissatisfaction over the high rental.

The rental for outlets at the terminal had increased by 10% every two years. It was RM679 in 2003 but has since been increased to RM960.
