it's too bad - if they started this project it would be a great foundation for Komuter Selatan.

I doubt he can cancel the current EDT project, the project in Ipoh-Padang Besar already has some good progress, future station sites now got piling activities, soil treatment and other stuffs.....the federal government already paid some money to the contractor, and not to mention, portions such as electrification and signalling has been tendered out.....based on these consideration, it is not that easy to cancel the thing......

If not the EDT, the PKR budget actually mentioned "fast rail"....and if you read the budget, they did not state "EDT" as wasteful like what is applied to HSBB, Bakun cable......(yeah, i know he did mention EDT during campaign, but interestingly, there is no mention of EDT in mega project which is considered to be wasteful)

HSBB is different, it is not implemented yet, and the company which may implement it not even being determined....

‘Balik kampung’ train tickets still available


KUALA LUMPUR: There are still seats available on KTM for Malaysians looking to return home during the festive period.

The intercity commuter will run through several destinations including Butterworth, Tumpat, Singapore, Ipoh and Kuala Lumpur.

As of yesterday, about 15,000 tickets were still available for travel between Sept 25 and Sept 30.

“Depending on public demand, we usually add about 200 tickets nearer Hari Raya.

“However, passengers are advised to buy their tickets now because seats are selling fast,” said KTM corporate communications manager Shahriza Embi.

Seats are offered based on economy, second and sleeper classes. The sleeper coaches offer passengers dorm-style travel cars, complete with bunk beds.

Ticket prices for all classes have not been increased and range from RM25 to RM52.

The bestseller so far has been the return journey route from Kuala Lumpur to Tumpat, Kelantan, on the WAU Express 1 with over 70% of the tickets sold.

Passengers looking to travel from Oct 1 to 6 can still do so with more than 20,000 commuter tickets still on sale.

Tickets can be bought at KTM counters nationwide. Alternatively, passengers can also book tickets through KTM’s call centre at 03-2267 1200 or purchase tickets online at KTM’s official website www.ktmb.com.my.

Unrest in KTM Bhd boardroom?
By Roziana Hamsawi Published: 2008/09/20
BusinessTimes

The national rail company board was not pleased with the government's decision to revoke an earlier decision to appoint former Pos Malaysia chief Datuk Idrose Mohamed as its new boss, says a source

NATIONAL rail company KTM Bhd has a new managing director since September 2 replacing Datuk Mohd Salleh Abdullah and his appointment, it has been learnt, was not short of controversy.

In protest over the appointment of Abdul Radzak Abdul Malek, all five independent non-executive directors, led by chairman Tan Sri Lim Ah Lek have threatened to resign from the board soon, said a source.

According to KTMB's 2006 annual report, the directors are Datuk Othman Abd Razak, Datuk Mani Usilappan, Puan Sri Aida Boey Abdullah, Datuk Wong Mook Leong and Dr Kader Sultan Md Ismail.

According to the source, the KTMB board was not pleased with the Finance Ministry's decision to revoke an earlier decision to appoint former Pos Malaysia Bhd managing director Datuk Idrose Mohamed as the new KTMB boss.

It is believed that the revocation of Idrose's appointment was a last-minute decision and the Finance Ministry's endorsement for Abdul Radzak took place early this month.

No official announcement on the appointment of Abdul Radzak has been made so far, despite him assuming the post since September 2.

Abdul Radzak was not available for comment yesterday when Business Times contacted his office.

KTMB executives also declined to speak to Business Times during a visit to the headquarters yesterday.

The source said Abd Radzak is the former general manager of KTMB's freight services division, who retired last year.

Calls to some of the directors and chairman yesterday were not answered, while two declined to comment.

One director merely said: "If that is what the source said, it could be true."

The other three directors of KTMB are non-independent non-executives Aniz Rizana Mohd Zainudin, Dr Ismail Jamaluddin and Dr Aminuddin Hassim.

Raja Muhammad Azhar Raja Muhammad is Aminuddin's alternate director.

Go on tours during Ramadan with KTMB


KUALA LUMPUR: Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) has put into operation a novel idea to demonstrate that Muslims can go on tours during Ramadan without having to worry about where to break fast or perform the obligatory prayers.

KTMB’s Pelancongan Ibadah tours was introduced this year with the inaugural trip from Kuala Lumpur to Wakaf Baru in Kelantan, taking 15 hours by the Ekspres Wau train which left the Sentral Station in the federal capital at 8.30pm on Sept 17 and arrived in the east coast state at 10.30am the following day.

“KTM Berhad wants to encourage tourism and help Muslims discard the notion that they cannot go on tours during the fasting month,” said KTMB general manager Sarbini Tijan.

When the time came for the breaking of fast, passengers who did not bring food had little to worry about as various types of food were available at the cafe on the train.

Even a special compartment had been made available for the passengers to perform their prayers.

Sarbini also said the tour to the east coast state coincided with “Visit Kelantan Year 2008”. - Bernama

Sapura Tech bids for job under rail project
By Sharen Kaur Published: 2008/09/23



SEVERAL local and foreign companies, including Sapura Technology Bhd, have bid for work under the RM3.45 billion project to lay parallel railway lines between Seremban and Gemas.

Sapura Tech, for instance, has made a RM100 million bid to carry out telecommunication works, an industry source said. Sapura Tech has declined to comment.

The main contractor for the project is India's national railway firm, Indian Railway Construction Co International Ltd (Ircon).

Ircon had called for tenders for electrification, signalling and telecommunication packages. This is the second round of tenders after it awarded initial works in May this year.



Business Times understands that Global Rail Sdn Bhd, Australia's Westinghouse Rail Systems and Ansaldo Signal, and Germany's Siemens have also bid for several packages.

Global Rail had made a RM300 million bid to design, supply, construct, test and commission several packages consisting of signaling and electrification works, train protection system and rail-track point machines.

Global Rail, a railway engineering firm, is controlled by Fan Boon Heng, who headed Balfour Beatty Rail Sdn Bhd for over 15 years.

The industry source said the proposals made by Ansaldo, Westinghouse and Siemens are in the range of RM280 million to RM380 million.

"Ircon is still deciding whether to award the jobs based on the proposals or break them down into smaller packages so it could undertake offshore procurement on its own and give the installation work to local contractors," a source said.

The four-year Seremban-Gemas project, which covers 110km, is fully funded by the government.

It will cover 34 river bridges, 27 road bridges, 107 culverts, two viaducts of 1.25km and 0.6km lengths and an 8km tunnel.

Ircon expects to complete building the first stretch from Seremban to Sg Gadut by early 2009, and then from Sg Gadut to Gemas in 2011.

It has awarded contracts to build stations, bridges, railway embarkment, culverts, drainages and foundation for track laying to Loh & Loh Corp Bhd, Fajarbaru Builder Group Bhd and IJM Corp Bhd. These are worth some RM1.1 billion in total.

He said more employees and auxiliary policemen would be placed at crowded stations like KL Sentral and MidValley to handle the crowds during the Hari Raya period.

“We hope passengers will be patient and not rush. Just follow the instructions of the KTMB staff members and give way to senior citizens and the disabled,” he said.
