Penang Transportation Plan

Penang plans integrated transport system
2009/07/11


PENANG: The Penang government intends to establish an efficient integrated transportation system involving hybrid buses, monorail, trams and water taxis to facilitate movement of people in the state, Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said yesterday. He said such a progressive system of transportation was necessary as the number of vehicles registered in Penang had risen to 1.4 million and resulted in traffic congestion.

"Unsatisfactory traffic management, insufficient infrastructure and lack of enforcement have added to the traffic flow problem.

"As such, we are drawing up a transportation master plan for the whole of Penang encompassing land (including railway) and water transportation," he said at the presentation of letters of appointment to members of the state transportation council here.

Lim said that owing to costs, the state government could only opt for one of the several forms of transportation, a decision on which had yet to be made. He also said that with the formation of the state transportation council, the state government would introduce education, enforcement and traffic dispersal to reduce traffic congestion in Penang.

On another matter, Lim, who is DAP secretary-general, suggested that the Federal Government gave urban students the alternative of continuing to learn Science and Mathematics in English as these students were more comfortable with the language. -- Bernama

should learn from the mistakes... what kuala lumpur have done

learn from singapore, common ticketing system for all transport system in both penang island and seberang perai (all use Tn'G).

penang state government can consider to give fare discount for those travels using Tn'G like what singapore did.

at least, Tn'G should able to reload using ticket vending machine, like what singapore did.

Penang water taxi plan
By Marina Emmmanuel Published: 2009/07/15
> http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cia14/Article/



The concept of a water taxi service connecting Penang island and the mainland under the Northern Corridor Economic Region has received the federal government's approval.

A feasibility study on the proposal for a shuttle service for passengers from 10 coastal points on both sides of the Penang channel is expected to be conducted next month and to be completed by the year-end.

"An allocation of RM50 million under the Ninth Malaysia Plan has been earmarked for commissioning technical studies, funding fundamental infrastructure and possibly finance boats for the water taxi service," Northern Corridor Implementation Authority (NCIA) senior vice-president (manufacturing industry division) Chris Tan told reporters in Penang yesterday.

Also present was Penang Port Commission (PPC) chairman Tan Cheng Liang.

Chris said the concept paper was approved by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak last week during an NCIA council meeting.

A consultant will be appointed soon to carry out a detailed study on the proposed project.

Chris added that the project was likely to be implemented as a private finance initiative.

"We are targeting for at least two or three routes to be operational by the end of 2010," he said.

Among other things, the feasibility study will look into operational details of the water taxi system, pricing mechanism for fares, size of the vessels to be used and how these can be integrated into a holistic transportation system for Penang.

"The NCIA will facilitate the project and work with the PPC and the federal government together with the local authorities," Chris said.

He also said that the NCIA would prefer the water taxi operator to have a stake in the business.

On Penang island, the proposed jetty points include Tanjung Bungah, Teluk Bahang, George Town, Bayan Lepas, Batu Maung and Pulau Jerejak.

On the mainland, locations such as Bagan Ajam, Butterworth, Pulau Aman and Nibong Tebal have been identified as potential landing points.

Cheng Liang said the water taxi service could open up more job opportunities by reducing the hassle for people to commute to work between the two points. The state, meanwhile, stood to benefit from a new product to attract tourists.

"The PPC is still open to any good proposal, especially from existing ferry operators who are in a position to pilot this project," she added.

Penang to have water taxis
By MANJIT KAUR


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.

Teksi air bakal diperkenalkan di Pulau Pinang

PULAU PINANG 14 Julai - Para pengguna jalan raya di negeri ini boleh 'mengucapkan selamat tinggal' kepada kesesakan lalu lintas memandangkan perkhidmatan teksi air bakal beroperasi sebagai pengangkutan alternatif tidak lama lagi.

Pengerusi Suruhanjaya Pelabuhan Pulau Pinang (SPPP), Tan Cheng Liang berkata, pelan konsep kreatif itu kini sedang diteliti oleh pihaknya dan berharap ia dapat direalisasikan kelak.

"Penggunaan teksi air sebagai pengangkutan alternatif sememangnya berfaedah khususnya untuk mengurangkan kesesakan di jalan raya di samping menjadi produk pelancongan baru.

"SPPP akan bekerjasama dengan Kementerian Pengangkutan dan Pihak Berkuasa Pelaksanaan Koridor Utara (NCIA) bagi melaksanakan projek ini," katanya kepada pemberita di sini hari ini.

Kata Cheng Liang, jika perkhidmatan itu dapat beroperasi nanti, ia mampu membawa penumpang berulang-alik dari pulau ke tanah besar setiap hari.

"Konsep perkhidmatan seperti ini sebenarnya telah lama diperkenalkan di beberapa bandar besar di luar negara seperti di Sydney, Australia.

"Jika projek ini dapat direalisasikan, kita yakin negeri ini mampu menjadi destinasi yang diminati bagi pelancong asing dan tempatan," jelasnya.

Menurut beliau, bagi penyelidikan fasa pertama, pengangkutan itu akan meliputi lokasi tertentu seperti di Tanjung Bungah, Teluk Bahang, Georgetown, Pulau Jerejak serta Batu Maung.

Katanya, perkhidmatan teksi air di kawasan perairan tanah besar pula meliputi Bagan Ajam, Butterworth, Batu Kawan dan Nibong Tebal.

"Pihak kami berterima kasih kepada Perdana Menteri yang meluluskan cadangan mewujudkan perkhidmatan teksi air ini di bawah Rancangan Malaysia Kesembilan (RMK-9) menjelang tahun hadapan dengan peruntukan sebanyak RM50 juta.

"Kita sekarang ini sedang mengenal pasti syarikat perunding bertauliah agar kajian dapat dilaksanakan dalam tempoh masa tiga hingga empat bulan," ujarnya.

Repairs at Penang ferry berth, use the Bridge
By TAN SIN CHOW
Published: Wednesday July 15, 2009 MYT 5:11:00 PM

GEORGE TOWN: Motorists heading to the mainland from the island have been advised to use the Penang Bridge until further notice to avoid congestion at the ferry terminal here.

One of the two ferry berths has been closed for repairs after its upper ramp developed a 30cm crack.

Penang Port Sdn Bhd (PPSB) ferry chief Kamarudin Ismail said the berth was expected to reopen the latest by noon on Saturday as repair work was being carried out round the clock.

He said the crack was discovered at about 7:20pm on Tuesday and the berth was subsequently closed for safety reasons.

He said PPSB has temporarily reduced the number of ferries from six to five while repairs are going on.

Kamarudin said the crack could have developed due to metal fatigue as 6,500 passengers, 3,500 motorists, 4,000 motorcyclists and 200 lorries use the ferry service daily.

The same ramp had developed a 20cm crack early last month and was repaired at a cost of RM10,000.

Najib must be very busy, having to attend to small matters like these. I couldn't understand why matters of state transportation has to be decided by the Prime Minister when the Chief Minister and the state administration can do the same job.

Perhaps they have forgotten that we are a federation, as they run things as if this is a unitary state.

Konsep pengangkutan air Pulau Pinang dilulus
Oleh Fazli Abdullah
[email protected]

Pembinaan 10 jeti menerusi inisiatif NCER bentuk program bersepadu

GEORGETOWN: Kerajaan Pusat meluluskan konsep Pengangkutan Air Pulau Pinang menerusi inisiatif Wilayah Ekonomi Koridor Utara (NCER) yang akan merangsang ekonomi dan peluang pekerjaan kepada penduduk negeri ini.

Antara lain, konsep itu membabitkan cadangan pembinaan 10 jeti bagi menghubungkan bahagian pulau dan tanah besar seperti di Bagan Ajam, Butterworth, Pulau Aman, Teluk Bahang, Tanjung Bunga dan Batu Maung.


Naib Presiden Kanan (Bahagian Industri Pembuatan) Pihak Berkuasa Pelaksanaan Koridor Utara (NCIA), Chris Tan, berkata RM50 juta diperuntukkan kepada pihaknya pada Rancangan Malaysia Kesembilan (RMK-9) bagi menjayakan inisiatif itu.

Antara lain, peruntukan itu akan digunakan untuk membiayai kajian kesesuaian, pembinaan prasarana dan pembelian bot.

Sehubungan itu, katanya, satu kajian kesesuaian terhadap projek berkenaan akan bermula bulan depan dan dijangka siap dalam tempoh tiga setengah bulan.

“Kami mensasarkan menjelang akhir RMK-9, sekurang-kurangnya dua atau tiga laluan bagi pengangkutan air antara pulau dan tanah besar akan beroperasi," katanya.

Beliau bercakap pada sidang media bersama Pengerusi Suruhanjaya Pelabuhan Pulau Pinang (PPC), Tan Cheng Liang, bagi menjelaskan konsep Pengangkutan Air Pulau Pinang di sini, kelmarin.

Konsep Pengangkutan Air Pulau Pinang diluluskan pada mesyuarat ketiga NCIA di Putrajaya, minggu lalu, yang dipengerusikan oleh Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

Najib dilaporkan berkata, semua projek NCER yang sedang dan akan dibina, pada asasnya mengikut jadual membabitkan sektor pertanian, pembuatan dan pelancongan yang disokong bidang infrastruktur, pendidikan dan modal insan serta pembangunan sosial.

Sebanyak RM750 juta diperuntukkan kepada NCIA dalam RMK-9 bagi melaksanakan projek itu termasuk Pusat Latihan Amali Agro Entrepreneur, SawahKU Maju, Pembangunan Hutan Tropika Belum-Temenggor, Taiping Bandar Warisan dan Sistem Pengangkutan Air Pulau Pinang.

Chris berkata, perunding yang akan menjalankan kajian itu akan dilantik tidak lama lagi.

Antara lain, perunding berkenaan akan memperhalusi sistem pengangkutan air, jenis bot sesuai digunakan, tambang serta mendapatkan pandangan pengusaha pengangkutan air sedia ada.

Sementara itu, Cheng Liang berkata, konsep pengangkutan air yang akan dibangunkan bertujuan membentuk sistem pengangkutan awam bersepadu, sesuai dengan Pulau Pinang sebagai hab logistik dan pengangkutan wilayah utara.

Katanya, sistem yang akan dibangunkan itu akan membantu mengurangkan kesesakan lalu lintas, memberi keselesaan kepada orang ramai serta menjaga alam sekitar.

Ferry Terminal Drive Ramp Under Repair
July 15, 2009 14:28 PM

PENANG, July 15 (Bernama) -- The third passage of the Raja Tun Uda Ferry Terminal is expected to be reopened on Saturday after repair work on the drive ramp is completed.

Ferry head Kamarudin Ismail said the ramp was closed at 7.20pm yesterday after minor cracks were found on it.

"As a result, only three of four ramps could be used for the time being. As repair work will take three days, we expect the ferry services to be congested.

"Motorists are advised to use the Penang Bridge to avoid congestion at the ferry terminal," he told reporters here today.

My point being, the federal government should not have the kind of power it currently has - everything is centralised, resulting in an inefficient government.

... while there may be some elements of similarity, what we are seeing here are separate proposals, from the NCER Implementation Authority/PPC (Federal government agencies) and the State government. The federal government side is talking about Private Finance Initiatives and may look at the whole Northern Corridor economic region.
