Yep! Saw it in the news. They will be layed along around Chow Kit, Petaling Street and if not mistaken Masjid India. Lets keep our mayor (though probably KL will lose lotsa money pasal bayar saman from those ppl affected by the recent flood)

To cost RM1billion! Sure hi-tech look one!

From NST
http://www.emedia.com.my/Current_New...80910/Article/

KL to have tram link for four areas
Tan Choe Choe

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 8: In an attempt to reduce traffic congestion in the city centre, City Hall today announced it is planning to introduce a tram service to connect four popular areas.

Datuk Bandar Datuk Mohmad Shaid Mohd Taufek said the idea had been mooted because the unlinked light rail transit and monorail stations presented a problem to travellers.

"Since the stations are not linked, the public have to take buses from one station to another," said Mohmad Shaid, adding that the tram service might also divert travellers from popular areas to unpopular ones. He said City Hall was conducting a preliminary study on the feasibility of providing the trams which would serve Chow Kit, Kampung Baru, Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman and Jalan Petaling. "The technology we have in mind is the newest one-wheel tram from Germany, and we are studying the routes to avoid disruption to traffic flow," he said.

He said the cost of providing the service would be about RM1 billion.

He was speaking at the first annual National Forum on City Development jointly organised by City Hall, Real Estate and Housing Developers Association of Malaysia (Rehda) and the Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute at Shangri-La Hotel today.

Themed "Balancing Development, Sustaining Growth", the one-day forum intended to explore ways to encourage a balanced and sustainable city development.

In his keynote address at the opening of the forum, Mohmad Shaid spoke about "Kuala Lumpur in the 21st Century: Challenges and Op-portunities".

"Being the premier city and capital of the nation, it is our aspiration that Kuala Lumpur be a world-class city and to achieve this, it must not only be economically developed, but should also be able to meet the social, spiritual and cultural needs of its people." He reiterated the five visions outlined in the Draft Kuala Lumpur Structure Plan 2020 (KL20). They are enhancing Kuala Lumpur as an international and financial centre, creating an efficient and equitable city structure benefiting all residents, enhancing the city's living environment, devising a distinctive Kuala Lumpur image, and building an efficient and effective method of city governance.

When asked how he would ensure that the policies of the plan were implemented, he said City Hall had formed the Kuala Lumpur Structure Plan Policy Implementation Committee.

"As for increasing the efficiency of City Hall's 9,000-strong staff, it will involve changes in their work culture." He said the KL20 plan should be gazetted by December, adding the implementation committee was having weekly meetings with related town planners.

OH NO....PLEASE!

This is my greatest fear....KL to have TRAMS!!!! You guys have ANY idea how ugly tram wires are?!?!? Go to Melbourne and you'll see all the wires hanging around..........please for crying out loud - NO TRAMS IN KL PLEASE!!!!

They should just improve on the bus service instead of putting new transit system........we already got EMU (KTM Komuter), Metro transit system (Starline & Putraline) & monorail. If you add tram, KL would have a complete set of transportation system and none are really that good......in the end we would have ROJAK!

KL is already beautiful......don't spoil it with those ugly tram wires.......although tram looks nice!

There is no such thing as trams without overhead wires! Where do they get electricity from? They can't put it on the ground as people walk on it and cars go on it too. If the road gets flooded the electricity would electrocute whomever that steps on the puddle.....

I agree to that too! Even Australian drivers whom I could attest much 'polite' and 'civilised' than our drivers here could cause much accident with the trams in Melbourne. I can't imagine trams on our roads!

There would also be trams & pedestrian accidents too! ......not forgetting the biggest road culprits - motorcycles!

Probably, these trams will teach out drivers or probably the otherway round
Anyway, these ugly wires will only be around those lowrise places right? Except for Jalan Raja Laut.
