No news yet! Really hope that AirAsia can come over Melaka! Anywhere, I heard AirAsia will come here in 2019. Hopefully no more telling lie like "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" story!

Sistem CTS di Terminal Melaka Sentral mulai April 2019

MELAKA: Bermula April tahun depan, Terminal Melaka Sentral, di sini, bakal memperkenalkan sistem Jualan Tiket Berpusat (CTS) bagi menggantikan sistem jualan tiket secara konvensional.

Pengerusi Lembaga Pengarah Melaka Sentral Sdn Bhd (MSSB), Nazri Abu Kassim, berkata langkah menaik taraf sistem penjualan tiket itu bertujuan meningkatkan mutu perkhidmatan yang lebih komprehensif dan sistematik di Terminal Melaka Sentral.

Katanya, kerja menaik taraf itu juga dilakukan kerana kaunter sedia ada tidak dapat menampung permintaan daripada pengusaha bas ekspres untuk menjalankan perniagaan di situ.

“Selain menggunakan sistem CTS, MSSB juga akan menaik taraf Sistem Operasi Terminal (TOS) seperti dilaksanakan di Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS) dan Larkin Sentral, Johor Bahru.

“Kedua-dua sistem ini akan mula digunakan pada April depan secara berperingkat sebelum dirasmikan pada Sambutan Hari Melaka Bersejarah,” katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian pada sidang media prapelancaran pelaksanaan sistem CTS di Melaka Sentral, di sini, hari ini.

Nazri berkata, keseluruhan kos menaik taraf sistem CTS dan TOS dijangkakan membabitkan kos kira-kira RM5 juta.

“Kerja menaik taraf sistem CTS dijangka mengambil masa kira-kira 13 minggu bermula Januari tahun depan.

“Kita akan menempatkan sebanyak 20 unit mesin kios dan lapan kaunter tiket selain kedua-duanya akan beroperasi selama 24 jam,” katanya.

Beliau berkata, pelaksanaan sistem itu nanti bukan sahaja memberi keselesaan kepada penumpang malah dapat mengekang lambakan kereta sewa di kawasan Terminal Melaka Sentral.

Meda Inc planning 600-acre tourism city in Melaka



Meda Inc Bhd’s new shareholder and executive director, Datuk Seth Yap Ting Hau, is looking to revitalise the struggling company by developing a tourism city in Kuala Linggi, Melaka.

Yap, a lawyer by profession as well as founder and CEO of M101 Holdings Sdn Bhd, has a 25.5% stake in Meda. The acquisition, via several transactions this year, saw him and M101 Ventures Sdn Bhd — a unit of M101 Group — end up with 9.43% and 16.06% equity interest respectively.

“Over the past years, M101 has been focusing on property tourism and our vision is to develop property tourism-related products. As there has always been a plan [to do it on a bigger scale], we have been searching for a huge tract for tourism venues,” says Yap.

Then, he came upon Meda’s 600-acre tract in Melaka early this year.

“We think the location is good and I see a lot of value in this piece of land,” says Yap. “Now that we have nailed down the concepts that we want to explore and also the partners involved, finalising the gross development value and costs will be our next step. We will make the necessary announcements in due course.”



Building a new city

Named Malaysia Tourism City (MTC), the project will be developed in three phases. Phase 1 comprises the first phase of a water theme park, a weekend market, a thematic adventure park, the first phase of the Estate vacation bungalows, Phase 1 of an eco-tourism park, a hotel and edu-tourism facilities.

Phase 2 and 3 will have a designer

moto-tourism park, a shopping mall and entertainment centre, a convention centre, the second and third phase of the Estate, an aesthetic healthcare centre, Phase 2 of the eco-tourism park, hotels, the second phase of the water theme park, a martial arts village, a medical centre, and an aquarium.

Meda will kick-start Phase 1 of MTC once it finalises a partnership with a tertiary educational institution by the first quarter of next year. The collaborative effort is aimed at creating an edu-tourism pillar at the development.

The weekend market, which will double as an event space, will be able to accommodate up to 10,000 booths. It is hoped that this will spur the economy in the area.

The developer plans to have 3,500 booths available for lease at first, and around 500 have already been booked. Each booth will be rented out for RM1,200 a month and the market will operate for three days a week, from Friday to Sunday. Yap believes the market can be held by the company as recurring income. It is slated to be operational by 2020.

A highlight at MTC will be a 40-acre water theme park, which will be developed in two phases. Yap is currently in exploratory discussions with some major international brands for the design.

Collaborating with world-renowned brands seems to be his strategy to drive the property tourism business. At M101, he brought in Hasbro, the world’s largest toy maker, to

create a first-of-its-kind Monopoly Mansion at M101 Bukit Bintang. He also teamed up with Studio FA Porsche to design suites at M101 SkyWheel. Both are ongoing projects under his M101 portfolio.

Over at MTC, its shopping mall and entertainment centre will have a gross floor area of 500,000 sq ft, while its thematic hotels will have 2,800 to 3,500 rooms in total.

Meanwhile, its vacation bungalows, called the Estate, will offer 114 bungalows in Phase 1. With built-ups of 6,000 to 8,000 sq ft, each unit will come with a swimming pool, open kitchen and dining, barbecue, karaoke and game rooms.

Yap plans to work with brands that hold intellectual property rights at the many components at MTC, including the themed hotels he plans to sell en bloc.

“This is how we will bring in foreign investment to finance the other components,” he says.

As for its eco-tourism component, it will be housed on 147 acres and will include

hydroponic and organic farms, a farm-to-plate restaurant, a bamboo garden and a petting zoo. The farms are targeted to commence operations by 2020.

“We are finalising all the contracts and getting ready to put our plans into action,” says Yap. The concepts have been on the drawing board for many years now. Partners in the project will be announced in due course, he adds.



Growth opportunities

While the company is reimagining a new future for Kuala Linggi, the area is at present a sleepy town. Rahim & Co branch manager (Melaka) Fiqri Rohaizad says the small town’s economic activity is mainly agriculture and fishing. It is located 50km from Melaka town, 75km from the Ayer Keroh toll, 20km from Teluk Kemang, Port Dickson, and 50km from the Port Dickson toll.

The area comprises mostly kampung houses with several small-scale chalets in between, notes Fiqri.

“There is very little development, with only a few housing schemes — mostly low to medium-cost houses under RM200,000 [each]. Most of the land [in Kuala Linggi] falls under the Malacca Customary Land (MCL) category, which is restricted to Malays and bumiputera.”

Agriculture or development parcels with open titles and of about one to two acres in size have been transacted at RM3 to RM4 psf while those with MCL titles and of one to two acres cost under RM2 psf. Fiqri says land that faces Jalan Pasir Panjang has reported higher transaction prices of more than RM10 psf. He adds that there is still a lot of MCL land available in the area.

As for large-scale developments, Fiqri is unsure if they will have an impact on the area. “However, the development (MTC) could be successful if it proves to be a huge attraction as well as create more jobs.”

Meanwhile, Yap plans to sustain Meda’s operations and finance for the long term by managing its existing projects and issues as well as maximising the potential of its existing assets and land bank, starting with the Kuala Linggi land. In October, the new shareholder began resolving the outstanding rent charges due to owners of The Arc in Cyberjaya. Meda has paid RM771,372.78 of the total outstanding rent of RM6.79 million.

While there has been speculation that Yap would inject his private business into the listed vehicle, he says there are currently no plans to do so but that the option remains open. He adds that there is also no plan to dispose of Meda’s assets.

“Our aim is for MTC to generate positive cash flow and improve the current earnings of Meda. We want to gain [people’s] confidence and rebuild the company, and we are optimistic we can turn the company profitable soon,” says Yap.

Melaka Gateway to continue as it is under local supervision — Adly

MELAKA (Jan 2): Melaka Chief Minister Adly Zahari has reiterated that the Melaka Gateway project will go on after ascertaining that it will be under the supervision of a local company and will benefit the people, especially in terms of job opportunities.

He said the State government was advocating the principle of non-interference in foreign direct investment (FDI) projects as long as they were overseen by local companies and provided various economic opportunities to the people.

The sState government adopts an open policy and has no problems with China’s investments, but the business models should be well managed for the benefit of the people, he told reporters after visiting tourism products in Melaka City here today.

"Now we are giving them the opportunity to continue with their investment with Power China. On our part, we have made it clear that as long as the project is under local supervision, our non-intervention policy remains.

"On this foreign investment, the project (Melaka Gateway) is still running. At present, they are scrutinising the port and ferry terminal issues. For FDI, our stand is clear, the investment can come to our industrial area.

“What matters most is that the foreign investment must take into account opportunities for locals," he said when commenting on former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s criticism of the State government’s decision to continue the project.

In yet another Facebook posting critical of the decision yesterday, Najib took a swipe at Adly, lamenting that it was weird for the Chief Minister to concede that the Melaka Gateway project was very important for the State's development.

Najib said it was strange that the project, which was labelled as a “foreign sell out” when it was initiated during his premiership, was now hailed as “bringing back the golden age of the Melaka Sultanate” without making any changes to the original project scope or shareholding.

In his previous reply to Najib’s criticism, Adly said Najib's claim was inaccurate as various improvements had been made to the original project to ensure that it would be a catalyst for the tourism sector and people’s benefits.

Spanning 246.4 hectares, the Melaka Gateway is a mixed commercial development project worth RM43 billion, comprising three man-made islands and one natural island, is expected to be completed by 2025.

Adly said besides the Melaka Gateway, an investment from China’ Xinyi Glass at the Elkay Industrial Park, Lipat Kajang, Jasin near here, had created 350 jobs for locals.

Opened in 2015 with an investment of RM2.7 billion, the company produces 3,200 tonnes of float glass and 1.99 tonnes of solar glass per day.

MELAKA, Jan 18 — Low-cost airline AirAsia Bhd is expected to start operations at the Melaka International Airport (LTAM) in Batu Berendam here with the launch of at least a domestic or an international flight route this year.

Melaka Public Works, Transport and Public Facilities Committee chairman Datuk Mohd Sofi Abdul Wahab said among the potential routes proposed by AirAsia were Melaka-Langkawi and Melaka-Bandar Seri Begawan, besides existing routes — Melaka-Penang and Melaka-Pekan Baru, operated by Malindo Air.

He said the opening of the new route through the cooperation with AirAsia was among the state government’s efforts to introduce more flight routes at LTAM, apart from helping in the success of Visit Melaka Year 2019.

“The discussions were held with AirAsia led by its chief executive officer Riad Asmat at the airline’s headquarters at RedQ KLIA2 today, and also attended by representatives from the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia, Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd and Melaka state Economic Planning Unit, including the state government’s offer to AirAsia to start flight routes at LTAM.

"The outcome of the meeting was positive when AirAsia voiced its readiness to start flight operations of at least one flight route this year. This effort will be continued via further discussions to ensure it becomes a reality,” he said in a statement here, today.

He said if AirAsia’s operations at LTAM was successfully realised, it would be able to increase the state’s economy through additional tourist arrivals to Melaka, thus, further improving the economic activities of local residents.

Meanwhile, Mohd Sofi said the state government was committed to helping and collaborating with local or international airline companies to make LTAM as the best aviation hub in the southern region of Peninsular Malaysia. — Bernama

MELAKA 6 Feb. - Bemula 1 Mac ini, syarikat penerbangan premium, Malindo Air akan memperkenalkan dua laluan baharu menggunakan Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Melaka (LTAM) Batu Berendam di sini iaitu ke Langkawi dan Kota Bharu, Kelantan.

Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Kerja Raya, Pengangkutan dan Kemudahan Awam negeri, Datuk Mohd. Sofi Abdul Wahab berkata, beliau telah dimaklumkan mengenai perkara itu oleh pihak pengurusan Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB) dan Malindo Air Melaka beberapa hari lalu.

Menurut beliau, menerusi persetujuan itu, Malindo Air akan mengadakan penerbangan sebanyak tiga kali seminggu di kedua-dua laluan baharu tersebut iaitu setiap Rabu, Jumaat dan Ahad.

“Laluan dari Kota Bharu ditetapkan pada pukul 11.55 pagi dan dijangka tiba di LTAM pada pukul 1.30 petang manakala penerbangan dari LTAM pula adalah pada pukul 1.50 petang dan tiba di Kota Bharu pada pukul 3.15 petang.

“Bagi laluan dari Langkawi pula bermula pukul 12.05 tengah hari dan tiba di LTAM pada pukul 1.45 petang manakala dari LTAM pula pada pukul 2.05 petang dan tiba di Langkawi pada pukul 3.45 petang,” katanya dalam sidang akhbar mengumumkan perkembangan terbaharu penerbangan di LTAM, di sini sebentar tadi.

Ketika ini, LTAM hanya menggunakan kira-kira empat peratus penggunaan lapangan terbang tersebut iaitu menerusi syarikat Malindo Air yang mengadakan penerbangan ke Pekanbaru, Indonesia dan Pulau Pinang.

Menurut Mohd. Sofi, kerajaan negeri mengalu-alukan langkah diambil oleh Malindo Air itu kerana ia bertepatan dengan program Tahun Melawat Melaka (TMM) 2019 yang sedang berlangsung ketika ini.

“Kita harap dua laluan baharu ini membantu menarik lebih ramai pelancong ke Melaka khususnya mereka yang datang ke Langkawi dan Kota Bharu untuk singgah ke Melaka.

“Untuk itu kerajaan negeri dengan bantuan portfolio Exco Pelancongan, Bahagian Promosi Pelancongan serta semua pemain sektor itu akan sentiasa berusaha mewujudkan sesuatu yang menarik mengenai Melaka supaya lebih ramai pelancong akan berkunjung ke negeri ini,” katanya. - UTUSAN ONLINE

I do support the idea of extending the ERL link from kLIA -> Seremban -> melaka. In terms of costing and existing lines to be explore. Beside ERL ends at KL sentral where LRT/MRT is connected. it creates a perfect connectivity's and maybe future it can extend the lines to muar later on to JB. They can make the rail service like A to B nonstop or stop at each station. Building HSR is good but it cost so much and you need passenger to support it. Imagine HSR is build as planed, and they have to build everything from scratch bandar msia station (thats like another 5 to 10 years), MRT lines (think of connectivity to sentral), then if you want to go KLIA heck you have more trouble since you need to detour to KL city before to airport!

Kata nya on-going. Siap mintak company profile ape bagai2. Gaya mcm broker aje.

Bila tya soalan2 basic project, byk jwpn Tak Tahu / Tak Pasti.
Dah nama pon broker. faham2 shj la.

Maybe jalan kot project ni tp so far takde news pon. Even klau private funding pon sure kene update/announce.

Singapore do not build their HSR near changi too, beside we cannot make connectivity with China via ERL.



Build everything from scratches will reduce the overall cost of making HSR. Like the housing project near future HSR station at iskandar puteri Johor. Instantly sold out without advertisement also. This project came under UEM sunrise, which major shareholder is the gov. So you are loss making on the stations, but make back money on the nearby, build from scrtaches new city, ranging from houses to shoplot etc, gov earn from more economy activities via more taxes.


More importantly, HSR fares, is expensive now, cheap tomorrow. Our standard of living is lifting, China ppl unable to afford HSR expensive fare, but as they are getting richer, it will be more affordable over time. Same thing happen 60 years ago, where road is build for the rich, that can afford a fxxcking car. Now? Car is a necessity. IF you want car became a necessity baru build road? You already lose to this competitive world.

BE forward looking, stop making waste on transition ERL project.

We should build for people, meaning we should service existing population centres, rather than just enriching corporations or filling government coffers. That is the basic tenet for public transportation, otherwise it wouldn't be called as such.

Extending the current ERL to Melaka and even to Muar would be an excellent idea! Tourists and locals can finally get to Melaka quickly from KL and KLIA.

Why bothered spending 20 bil building a set of track besides KTM tracks only to increase the speed by 40km/h?

Why subsidies construction of 100 km of ERL tracks and still pay plenty for the ticket rather than just 20 to 40 km of KTM branch line with cheap tickets?
