GEORGE TOWN: The Northern Corridor Implementation Agency (NCIA) has been given until Jan 15 to get back to the state government on its interest in collaborating on the state’s Transport Master Plan.

State Local Government and Traffic Management Committee chairman Chow Kon Yeow said the state had appointed a company to commission a study on the transportation plan a few months ago.

He said NCIA later showed interest to work with the state government on the water taxis, and other maritime transportation projects.

“We have no problem working with them, but we need to know fast whether they are interested to join us or they want to engage their own consultant to do a study,” he said in an interview yesterday.

On Sept 16, Chow had said that the fate of Penang’s water taxi plan would hinge on the master plan.

He said if NCIA wanted to cooperate with the state government on the study, then maybe partial funding for the study could come from the Public Private Partnership Unit (UKAS) in the Prime Minister’s Office.

The NCIA could not be reached for comments.
x paham?

the transport master plan dah siap dan tunggu NCIA nk join ke xnk

@ study x buat lagi,tunggu NCIA to sama2 fund the study

The Land and Public Transport Authority is likely to spearhead Penang's proposed light rapid transit system, say sources


The federal government may revive a project to build a light rapid transit (LRT) system for Penang, as part of efforts to reduce traffic congestion nationwide.

Business Times has learnt that the scheme is likely to be an expansion of the government's efforts to improve public transport via projects such as Kuala Lumpur's first mass rapid transit system (MRT) and the proposed light rail service in the Iskandar Development Region in Johor.

However, there is no known time-frame attached to this project.

"The Land and Public Transport Authority is likely to spearhead Penang's proposed LRT system," sources said.

If the project in Penang takes off after repeated attempts previously, there is expected to be an all-round sigh of relief, in the face of traffic jams which have been worsening for close to two decades.

Talk of a LRT system for Penang is not new, dating back to more than 10 years ago when the then state government had talked about the project, along with other proposals such as the Penang Outer Ring Road, a monorail system and a third connection for Penang island and Seberang Prai.

Although the projects have yet to take off, other methods to alleviate traffic congestion, such as the Jelutong Expressway (now renamed the Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway) and the introduction of several one-way traffic systems in selected areas on Penang island and the mainland, have offered little respite to motorists and commuters.

The Penang Monorail was a proposed monorail line to be constructed under the Ninth Malaysia Plan (9MP) and Northern Corridor Economic Region.

The 37km monorail line, estimated to cost RM1.6 billion, was expected to be located on Penang island, with two lines to be built and possible extensions to Province Wellesley in the future.

After the mid-term review of the 9MP, however, the project has been postponed indefinitely.

"The proposed LRT for Penang," a source said, "is yet another federal government initiative to invest in Penang, following the current upgrade of the Penang International Airport and the second Penang Bridge."

What is this ?? Throwing random numbers up in the air ? Even in the 90s it'd cost more than that. Sheesh.

By the way, anyone still has the proposed Penang LRT/Monorail alignment map ?

GEORGE TOWN: The public can travel faster between various places on Penang island and Seberang Prai with the introduction of water taxis which is expected to take-off by the end of next year.

Penang Port Commission (PPC) chairman Tan Cheng Liang said the project was approved by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at the Northern Corridor Economic Region (NCER) council meeting recently.

She said the PPC, which mooted the idea, had identified 10 proposed coastal points for the service.

She said the sites on the mainland are Butterworth, Bagan Ajam, Pulau Aman and Nibong Tebal, and Weld Quay, Tanjung Bunga, Teluk Bahang, Tanjung Tokong, Pantai Jerejak and Batu Maung on the island.



Tan said the water taxis will greatly help to reduce travelling time between various places in the state.

“For example, it will take more than two hours for the public to travel from Bagan Ajam in Butterworth to Batu Ferringhi on Penang island as they will have to take a ferry and then a bus.

“But with the water taxis, it will only take them about 30 minutes,” she said at a press conference here yesterday.

Tan said the service would be useful for those staying in Seberang Prai but working in Bayan Lepas factories or Batu Ferringhi hotels.

“It will also ease traffic congestion on the island and be an alternative mode of transport when there are traffic snarls on Penang Bridge.

“The service will provide new job opportunities and spur the tourism industry,” she said.

Tan said the service would be implemented by the Northern Corridor Implementation Agency (NCIA) under the Ninth Malaysia Plan.

“The Federal Government has allocated RM50mil for the state water transportation services,” she said.

She said a consultant would be engaged to carry out a study on the project feasibility, the popularity of the routes and geographical impact.

“The consultant will take about three to four months to conduct the study,” she added.

NCIA senior vice-president Christopher Tan Chie Kiong said the final cost of the project could not be determined prior to the study.

“NCIA is expected to appoint a consultant by next month to commission the study but while waiting for it to be completed, we want to identify opportunities for pilot services with the existing infrastructure,” he said.
Water Taxis Will Make Splash For Transportation, Tourism In Penang
March 05, 2011 16:01 PM

KEPALA BATAS, March 5 (Bernama) -- Water taxis will make a splash for transportation and tourism in Penang.

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop said this followed a study on the implementation of water taxis, which was carried out by the Northern Corridor Implementation Authority (NCIA).

He was speaking to reporters after opening the annual general meeting of the Sekolah Kebangsaan Tasek Gelugor parents-teachers association here today.

The minister said the government had no problem in providing allocation to implement water taxi transportation.

"Under NCIA, we have a provision for such implementation," he said.

Penang Port Commission chairman Tan Cheng Liang was reported having said the government had approved implementation of water taxis and that RM50 million was set aside for the project to be carried out in stages.

The areas proposed as routes in the island involve Tanjung Bungah, Teluk Bahang, Georgetown, Pulau Jerejak and Batu Maung, while for Seberang Perai, it covers seaside areas of Bagan Ajam, Butterworth, Batu Kawan and Nibong Tebal.

TSNMY sure loves Penang. He got to announce the introduction of RapidPenang & has been a quiet champion to keep the funding going in Gov't/Parliament too.

New traffic lights open up new way to Penang Bridge
Monday March 14, 2011
http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...7107&sec=North

MOTORISTS who use Jalan Masjid Negeri to get to the Penang Bridge and Bayan Lepas via the Tunku Kudin roundabout now have an alternative route.

They can approach from Lebuhraya Gelu-gor where new traffic lights have been installed at the junction with Jelutong Road to enable motorists to turn right to the roundabout.

“Previously, motorists coming from Lebuh-raya Gelugor were unable to head towards the Penang Bridge using Jelutong Road as there was no right turn.

“The new traffic lights will enable them to avoid the jam on Jalan Masjid Negeri,” Batu Lancang assemblyman Danny Law said after switching on the traffic lights on Satur-day.

Law, who is also Penang Tourism Development and Culture Committee chairman, said this would also ease the traffic congestion around Taman Ghee Hiang and Taman Gelugor as there would be fewer motorists passing the two housing areas to get to Jalan Masjid Negeri.

He said the project to install the traffic lights cost RM200,000. It included speed reduction lines along Jelutong Road.

RM4bil roads for Penang

GEORGE TOWN: The state government has announced plans to implement two new road projects costing some RM4bil to reduce traffic congestion on Penang island by up to 40%.

Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said the first project was a 4.2km inner ring road connecting Gurney Drive to the Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway (formerly Jelutong Expressway) using a combination of semi-tunnel and elevated road.

The other is a 4.6km-long tunnel road linking Paya Terubong and Bandar Baru Air Itam to the expressway,” he said.

Lim said the state was inviting a Request For Proposal (RFP) for the two projects, adding that major contractors were encouraged to submit their designs through the RFP process.

“The projects, which will be awarded via open tender, do not have a commencement date but the state wants the project to be implemented quickly,” he said at a press conference yesterday.

Lim said the state had come up with the projects because roads here were getting more congested due to rapid development.

“I hope the Federal Government and the private sector will support the projects. It may be costly but they are crucial in managing traffic congestion on the island.

“The projects, which came about after a series of studies over two years, will be incorporated into the Penang Transport Master Plan,” he added.

Penang Municipal Council senior traffic engineer A. Rajendran said the two new roads could alleviate congestion by up to 40% along the local road network.

How different is this from the Penang Outer Ring Road? Just seems to be missing one segment, between Ayer Itam and Gurney drive.

Also, the original outer ring road was meant to be over ground and not underground.
