KLIA East @ Labu - 2nd LCCT

'KLIA East @ Labu’ gets government go-ahead: Airport part of 'massive city'
By : V. Vasudevan


KUALA LUMPUR: The cabinet has given the green light for a new low-cost carrier terminal on a 2,800-hectare site in Labu, Negri Sembilan, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat said.

Ong said the new LCCT would be built under a private finance initiative by conglomerate Sime Darby Bhd and budget airline AirAsia.

The airport will anchor Sime Darby's "massive integrated city" development in Labu, which includes five townships with services in education, health, sports, high technology, recreation and entertainment.

The RM1.6 billion terminal will be funded by Sime Darby and joint-venture partners which could include AirAsia and Malaysia Airports Bhd.

Ong said the new terminal was needed as the current facility in Sepang would not be able to cope with the increased passenger volume.

Under its final expansion phase, after which there will be no more room for growth, the Sepang LCCT will have its capacity increased to 15 million passengers a year, a figure industry sources say is likely to be exceeded by 2011.

Including its Thai and Indonesian affiliates, AirAsia flew some 18 million people this year. The new terminal will be built to accommodate 25 million passengers a year, and last on present forecasts until 2030.

Ong said he could not give a timeline on when work would start on the new LCCT.

"It is up to them as to when they want to start work. For our part we will make sure there is connectivity between the Kuala Lumpur International Airport and the new LCCT.

"We want to ensure passengers will be able to move from both places speedily, smoothly and efficiently."

To be called "KLIA East@ Labu", the new terminal is slightly closer to central Kuala Lumpur than the present LCCT and will boast connectivity by both road and rail.

A 7km branch road will link it with the North-South Expressway and a 3km spur line will be built from the railway station in Labu -- a stop on the KL-Seremban KTM Komuter route.

Welcoming the project's approval, Negri Sembilan Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hassan said the KLIA would be connected to the new terminal by a 7km Express Rail Link (ERL).

Industry sources said a ground-breaking ceremony was being slated for late next month with construction planned for completion in two years.

When the new facility is commissioned, the Sepang LCCT, which has more than recovered its cost from the explosive increase in passenger numbers over the last two years, will serve other budget carriers, such as Singapore's Tiger Airways.

Mohamad said the siting of the new terminal near Kampung Gadong Jaya in Labu would boost economic growth in the state.

"The location is not far from the existing terminal. It will be an extension of the KLIA.

"When the airport is built, the state can expect economic development, such as housing estates and business centres, in the surrounding areas," he said.

Proposed LCCT to be privately funded
By SARBAN SINGH


SEREMBAN: Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan has told critics to stop making claims that the proposed construction of a new low-cost carrier terminal near Nilai was a waste of government funds.

Mohamad said they should get their information right before making unfounded claims as the proposed project was a privately-financed initiative and the Government did not need to spend a single sen for its construction.

“Some people are saying that this is my project and I intend to give it to my cronies. This is so pathetic,” he told reporters at his office yesterday.

He said even if the state government planned to carry out a project, it would go through the normal tender process.

Mohamad was commenting on claims that the proposed construction of the project was a “brazen” waste of public funds particularly when the economic scenario in the coming months was not expected to be good.

Mohamad had last month said the new airport, to be located between Nilai and Bandar Enstek, would be built to replace the present LCCT in Sepang.

He said the proposed airport, to be build on a 2,800ha area, would be bigger than the present LCCT which could no longer accommodate the increasing passenger volume.

The proposed project would be developed by Sime Darby, which owns the land, and AirAsia.

“We need a new airport as AirAsia now has bigger wide-bodied planes. Its aircraft fleet has also expanded tremendously,” he said yesterday.

He said the proposed airport would also be equipped with aero-bridges and state-of-the-art facilities for passenger comfort.

Mohamad said although Sime Darby, AirAsia and the state government had agreed to the project, the Cabinet would have the final say on the matter.

He expressed hope that the Transport Ministry, Malaysia Airports and the Department of Civil Aviation would support the proposed project.

Two universities and several private institutions of higher learning would also be built in the vicinity of the proposed project, which is located in the state’s central corridor.

Sime plans mega project,12,000ha multi-themed scheme to kick off next year
BY WONG SAI WAN


KUALA LUMPUR: SIME Darby Bhd will carry out a massive development project at the Negri Sembilan-Selangor border covering some 12,120ha, with the first launch expected next year.

The development will be based on five themes – health, education, sports, hi-tech and recreation – and will be located at its present Labu and Tanah Merah estates.

Each theme will be developed as an integrated city and the cities will be interconnected.

The first to be launched next year will be the Medical City, which will encompass training colleges, a medical centre of excellence, teaching hospitals and even housing units built for the elderly and infirm.


Datuk Seri Ahmad Zubir Murshid.
“We will even invite other medical companies, especially international ones, to set up their facilities in this city.

“We will also be building a nurses training centre to produce 15,000 nurses a year,” said Sime Darby president and chief executive Datuk Seri Ahmad Zubir Murshid.

He was speaking at a media briefing to announce that the Goverment had agreed in principle to Sime Darby’s proposal to buy up to 51% of IJN Sdn Bhd, which operates the national heart institute, Institut Jantung Negara.

Zubir said a second IJN would be built at the Labu Medical City which would also see four other “centres of excellence,” including one for cancer treatment. He said the five cities would be like “multiple Subang Jaya(s),” which was also developed by Sime Darby.

On the purchase of a majority stake in IJN, he explained that it made sense because the group’s healthcare division’s long term plan was to set up several centres of medical excellence.

However, he stressed that “it was not yet a done deal” as due diligence of IJN had yet to be done. He also denied that IJN made more money than Sime Darby’s medical services business.

“Last year IJN made RM20mil while (Sime Darby’s) SJMC made RM25mil. This is a marriage and not a takeover. The synergy from this win-win situation is tremendous,” Zubir said.

It's fine to me, if they really build two rail lines from ERL and KTM to the new LCCT terminal.....one for transferring purpose, another one (KTM) for the purpose of transport passengers from other cities in Klang Valley...

Lapangan terbang bukan projek kroni
Oleh Hussain Said
bhnews@bharian.com.my
Pembinaan terminal dipersetujui Sime Darby, AirAsia

SEREMBAN: Menteri Besar, Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan menegaskan rancangan pembinaan lapangan terbang pertama di negeri ini di Kampung Gadong Jaya, Labu, dekat sini bukan projek kroni dan ia tidak menggunakan sesen pun duit kerajaan negeri.

Beliau berkata, rancangan pembinaan di kawasan seluas 2,800 hektar itu dibuat atas persetujuan bersama antara syarikat Sime Darby dengan syarikat penerbangan AirAsia, yang mahu satu lokasi untuk terminal baru mereka.



"AirAsia mahukan terminal baru untuk keselesaan pelanggan disebabkan terminal sedia ada sekarang sudah terlalu sesak, manakala Sime Darby mahu memajukan tanah mereka.

"Kerajaan negeri tidak ada kena mengena dengan projek itu, malah tidak mengeluarkan wang satu sen pun untuk projek berkenaan," katanya pada sidang media selepas mempengerusikan mesyuarat Exco di pejabatnya di Wisma Negeri, di sini, semalam.

Beliau mengulas mengenai tuduhan pembangkang yang mendakwa projek itu satu pembaziran dan dibuat atas kepentingan kroni.

Mohamad berkata, tuduhan pembangkang itu jelas tidak berasas dan berharap mereka bercakap berdasarkan fakta bagi memastikan tidak dilihat jahil.

"Saya tahu kerja pembangkang adalah untuk membangkang, tapi bila kita buat sesuatu untuk kebaikan rakyat, ia bukan satu pembaziran, malah dalam hal ini, ia bukan projek kerajaan negeri.

"Kalau kerajaan negeri terbabit sekali pun, kita akan buat mengikut sistem tender terbuka," katanya.

ha....bagus lah, duduklah jauh-jauh. kerja kat KL, rumah duduk dkt tempat jin bertendang. lepas tu penuh lah KL tu dengan kereta...camner tak jam? nak pulak kerajaan buat highway apa semua...

uhhh....i don't understand what's in Ong Tee Keat's head....the area around present KLIA is still deserted, and they still want to choose another 'desert' to build the terminal...i think one day, melaka will become 'Kuala Lumpur' after all cities in N Sembilan become 'Kuala Lumpur'

Same here, I really don't get the logic of the planners...why is KLIA not expanded instead? What about the 2nd satellite terminal? The land is also there for a 2nd MTB, etc. etc. Does any one honestly think that MAS will be able to utilize this future space?? Maybe someone could convince me that there will be a huge demand by foreign airlines to fly here in the near foreseeable future!!

So "private money" wins the heart of the politicians, and these losers just pretty much rolled over and say "whatever-lah". Has it crossed anyone else's mind on what these politicians are getting in return for this quick approval with limited oversight? Tragic. What a waste of land for an airport when there's already one helluva piece right there where the action is!

Also one last thought...almost no one likes to take a coonecting train or bus or taxi to get to his/her connecting flight after a long flight. Putting the new terminal right at the doorstep only makes sense!!!

i believe there is.....

anyway, the tendency of building/developing township/infra far away from civilization will likely end up either failure or below target. these are the examples;

KLIA
Cyberjaya
E-Village
F1 circuit (smaller crowds)
Bukit Beruntung (township)
Lembah Beringin (township)

If they connect the lcct to ktm komuter it will boost ridership tremendously for ktmb and also it seems to be a good proposal to extend the erl. UK have up to 5 airports in London. KL will soon have 3 KLIA, Subang and LCCT hehe

Easy!!! The entire KLIA current landbanks are in Selangor. The new proposed LCCT is in Negri Sembilan.

This is definately politically motivated. At the end, the people will suffer.

wth is going on with our planners and Ministry of Transport?

KLIA has one of the largest landbank for airport in the world... it means there's plentiful of land for development there. And i thought they want to make KLIA the hub for all air travels?
Integrating all at KLIA is the best way to compromise AirAsia, MAS and MAHB when the air is further liberalised in years to come.

If AirAsia wants to move out from KLIA, may as well ask KLIA/LCCT to shift back to Subang!!!

(btw I believe KLIA's future is heavily dependant on AirAsia/AirAsiaX, not MAS not foreign airlines)

Map and distance from KL Sentral to Labu station (possibly got 3 km spur line, according to the news report on NST)



The distance from KLS to Labu is approximately, 58 km...........add the 3 km spur line, the distance from KL Sentral to the future permanent LCCT, should be a little more than 60 to 62 km......so, a train, an express train, even with average speed of certain speeds are make the journey in about :

- At 60 km/h average speed, it may take a little more than an hour
- At 70 km/h average speed, it may take about 0.87 hour
- At 80 km/h average speed, it may take about 0.76 hour
- At 90 km/h average speed, it may take about 0.67 hour
- AT 100 km/h average speed, it may take about 0.61 hour

Fortunately, most stations along the Rawang-Seremban line are four tracks, rather than 2 tracks, thus, traffic disruption from other train services can be reduced.....

Map of KLIA surroundings............

As i see from Google Earth...



The middle line is the border between Selangor and Negeri Sembilan...as you can see, i marked the KLIA and Labu station as a point of reference....

I have one concern though, if AK operate the new terminal, how about competition.......er, can we attract other foreign LCCs to the new terminal?

Yes, I realize the different owners of the land. But couldn't something be worked out and have all options considered/exhausted before going against the goals for KLIA, that is to have an integrated facility (w/o all those unnecessary external transits) like most all world-class airports of the world? We have one just south of the border as a standard to go by.

And yes, the whole concept absolutely smells bad. Too bad the people under the flight path do not have a word in the matter. Talk about democratic country...what a shame!!!

Talk about unnecessary duplication of infrastructure like runway, and the fact that MAHB isn't involved in this project..........
