KL STRUCTURE PLAN 2020

Experts to draw up KL city development plan
AZURA ABAS
KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 10:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Four consultants have been engaged to draw up the Kuala Lumpur Local Plan, a blueprint to implement the policies stipulated in the KL Structure Plan 2020.
The consultants are tasked with producing development plans for six zones: Sentul-Menjalara, Wangsa Maju-Maluri, Damansara-Penchala, Pusat Bandaraya, Bandar Tun Razak-Sungai Besi, and Bukit Jalil-Seputeh.

Federal Territories Minister Tan Sri Isa Samad said the consultants needed about 18 months to complete the local plan, including the much-awaited development plan for the city’s Malay enclave - Kampung Baru.

Within the period, he called on Kampung Baru residents to settle all issues which had thrown a wrench into the wheel of development on the 102.4 hctare neighbourhood.

“If you (Kampung Baru residents) are able to settle all contentions like inheritance issues fast, the quicker it will be for development in your area,” he said.

Last November, Kampung Baru residents finally agreed to develop the area.

Once the local plan was ready, Isa added, it would be open to public viewing so that the authorities could get feedback.


He was speaking at yesterday’s launch of a dialogue between Amanah Raya Berhad and the residents in the Titiwangsa constituency on matters related to inheritance at Dewan Hamzah in Kampung Baru.

Also present were ARB chairman Dusuki Ahmad and managing director Ahmad Rodzi Pawanteh.

Later, Titiwangsa Member of Parliament Datuk Astaman Abdul Aziz contributed RM20,000 to the Malaysian Tsunami Disaster Fund.

Isa and Astaman presented the mock cheque to the New Straits Times, Berita Harian and TV3 reporters.

Asked whether the ministry would consider amending the relevant law if Kampung Baru residents failed to settle their issues, Isa said: “We may look into it.”

On the dengue outbreak, he said, City Hall would immediately deploy special teams to “hot spots” to clean up the areas fast.

Health Minister Datuk Dr Chua Soi Lek was recently quoted as saying that there could be a dengue epidemic in several States in the coming months, following a worrying increase in the number of dengue cases in the Federal Territory, Selangor, Penang and Pahang.

Draft Kuala Lumpur Structure Plan 2020

Since the last KL Structure Plan 1984 was adopted, major developments such as theMultimedia Super Corridor (MSC), the KLIA and the transfer of federal governmentadministrative functions to Putrajaya have rendered most of the previous plan obsolete.The Draft KL Structure Plan 2020 contains the vision, goals, policies and proposals toguide the development of KL over the next 20 years.


The official launch of the exhibition on the Draft KL Structure Plan 2020 was held on 10March 2003. The public was invited to inspect and submit written objections to the DraftPlan. A Public Hearing Committee was then set up to hear, consider and report objectionsto the Draft Plan. REHDA Wilayah Branch had submitted its views and suggestions toDewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) on the Draft Plan on 28 April 2003. Thehearing on the Branch’s recommendation was held on 19 May 2003.


The Public Hearing Committee has since submitted a report to the Mayor who willforward the revised Draft Plan together with the report to the Minister in the PrimeMinister’s Department in charge of Federal Territory affairs for approval. The approvedDraft Plan will then be gazetted and published in local newspapers.


The Draft Plan does not contain proposals for detailed physical planning for any specificarea. Detailed physical proposals shall be relegated to a subsequent stage of thedevelopment plan, that is, the local plan. Under this two-pronged approach, the DraftPlan only outlines the goals, strategies and policies towards achieving the vision of KualaLumpur as a world-class city and identifies ways to minimise or solve issues andproblems faced by the citizens.


After the structure plan comes into force, DBKL may consider the preparation of a localplan for any part or the whole of Kuala Lumpur. The local plan will provide morecomprehensive and detailed planning guidelines for the development of specific sites.

Hey guys. Read further down the attached article to see what KL2020 has in mind for the expansion of LRT system. Interesting. Hope the Ninth Malaysia Plan would include all these projects.


-----------------------------------

The Draft Kuala Lumpur Structure Plan 2020 was successfully prepared in line with the provisions of the Federal Territory (Planning) Act 1984 and is currently being displayed by City Hall for the benefit and feedback from the citizens of Kuala Lumpur.

In essence, via this plan, City Hall Kuala Lumpur strives to improve the quality of living, working and business environment so as to make Kuala Lumpur A World-Class City that benefits its people, entrepreneurs, businessman and visitors.

So what is this draft plan? The Draft Kuala Lumpur Structure Plan 2020 is the blueprint that will guide the development of Kuala Lumpur for the next 20 years. The Plan outlines the goals, strategies and policies towards achieving the vision as well as identifies ways to minimize or solve issues and problems faced by the citizens.

The Tables 1 and 2 provide a summary of the Vision and the Goal of the Structure Plan respectively, but in eventuality it is the Development Strategy as outlined in Table 3 that will define the opportunities and new development nodes in Kuala Lumpur.

Based on the Development Strategy and Transportation Proposals put forward together with other elements of the Draft Structure Plan, the following areas are identified as potential areas that an investor, developer or a home owner can target for their next venture in the property market. (for a copy of a previous article on Hot Locations on Oct 12, 2002 in BizWeek, kindly e-mail to [email protected] for an immediate automatic response). Please note that we do not have any interest in these locations and our advice should be regarded solely as a general guide. Please also note that the Structure Plan is for a 20 year period and based on the plan ,we are unable to assess the implementation schedule of the proposed improvements to the city.

1. City Centre. Strong emphasis on creating Kuala Lumpur city also as a residential hub, with DBKL emphasizing on making Kuala Lumpur a world class city. The city will host a bigger number of Urban Dwellers and we are of the opinion that mid to high end condominiums will be the flavor of the seasons to come as high density and high quality residential development will be encouraged in dilapidated housing areas such as those around Jalan Tiong Nam, Jalan Masjid India and Jalan Alor / Berangan.

To complement the surrounding areas, medium density high quality residential development will be designated in the areas around the KLCC, Jalan Yap Kwan Seng, Bukit Ceylon, Jalan Inai / Imbi and Jalan Stonor / Conlay. The trend is already seen with the success of existing high end developments like Hampshire Park, Kirana and 3 Kia Peng.

For commercial developments, The area within KLCC shall be developed as the main commercial hub, and the area around Jalan Bukit Bintang enhanced as a premier tourist precinct. Part of the area on the former government quarters, next to the existing temporary market at Jalan Davis shall be developed into a comprehensive market, hawkers and food centre which will also be a major tourist attraction. It shall also include a district park. We are also of the opinion that Jalan Raja Chulan will be very prominent as well due to the proposed under ground expressway connecting to the Middle Ring Road.

2. International Zones. DBKL has designated certain localities as International Zones to attract the highest caliber of expertise, both local and overseas, to live as well as work in the Kuala Lumpur. In addition to being high quality residential districts, the International Zones shall also be developed as high-end employment centers specializing in ICT or high skills technology. Commercial activities that cater to the needs and tastes of the international market shall be encouraged and precincts which specialize in international cuisine and culture shall be designated and developed.

These areas include U-Thant/Ampang area, Bangsar/Bkt Tunku/Damansara Heights Area and Bukit Jalil. The southern zone at Bukit Jalil shall serve as a bridge between the City and the MSC high tech areas to the south. Because of its key location in relation to the MSC and the City Centre, it is anticipated that Bukit Jalil will attract many expatriates and local people who are involved in high technology industries.

3. Comprehensive Development Areas. Two new hot spots are identified and targeted by DBKL as new development areas. These two locations are Kg Baru Malay Reserve in the heart of the city and the Jalan Duta federal government complex. These areas shall be comprehensively planned and developed as integrated mixed developments comprising residential, commercial and industrial uses and will include utilities and facilities will meet the demands of its projected residential populations. Each of these areas shall also be served by transit terminals that will be connected to key activities in the area and around which district centres shall be developed.

The Jalan Duta redevelopment shall primarily consist of high-end commercial, office and residential development, hotel and Meetings, Incentive, Conference and Exhibition (MICE) facilities and shall also include a specialist healthcare precinct to serve the local population of Kuala Lumpur as well as to promote healthcare tourism. A district park is also proposed here.

So, they spill over will be felt in around in and around Kg Baru, such as Jalan Dang Wangi, Jalan Semarak, Chow Kit etc and Jalan Duta such as Sri Hartamas, Mont Kiara, Segambut, Sentul Raya and Jalan Ipoh.

4. Development of Malay Reservation Areas, new villages and traditional kampongs. The development of these areas will be focused on betterment of the lifestyle of the residents without losing its cultural and historical heritage. The areas identified and targeted by DBKL include Kg Baru, Datok Keramat, Bukit Segambut, Sg Penchala, Gombak and Selayang and also new villages like Jinjang and Salak Selatan

5. Intergrated City Linkages. Always the most interesting part of the Structure Plan. Well, the key proposed linkages to have at the back of your mind are the following:

Public Transport

1. Proposed Gombak bus terminus to be integrated with the Putra LRT terminus to create a multi modal interchange incorporating taxi, rail and inter city bus services.

2. Proposal of extending the LRT line further northwards from Sentul Timur towards Taman Wahyu and westward towards Kepong

3. Proposed Jalan Ipoh bus terminus to be integrated with the proposed LRT terminus of the extended STAR LRT line to create a multi modal interchange incorporating taxi, rail and inter city bus services

4. The Segambut KTM rail station in the northwest corner of the Jalan Duta redevelopment shall be upgraded and properly integrated into the development of this area

5. The western spur of the proposed Damansara-Cheras LRT link serves the Damansara district centre and Taman Tun Dr. Ismail neighborhood centre. This line might extend to the new neighbourhood centre at Penchala.

6. The STAR LRT shall be extended to serve the district centre at Bukit Jalil and the feasibility of extending a spur from the PUTRA LRT or the PRT to connect to the new district centre at Bukit Indah via Jalan Klang Lama shall be examined. Another station along this spur shall be developed to connect to the new neighborhood centre at Taman Desa.

7. In order to improve accessibility to the Mid Valley Megamall, a pedestrian connection shall be made to the LRT station at Abdullah Hukum utilizing a pedestrian bridge over the Sungai Klang.

8. A major multi-modal integrated public transportation terminal in Bandar Tasik Selatan, where the ERL, KTM and STAR LRT intersect, shall be fully developed, which will be integrated with the southern inter-city bus terminal.

9. The eastern spur of the proposed Damansara-Cheras LRT link extending from Taman Tun Dr. Ismail to Taman Segar in Cheras, will pass through the eastern part of this zone. The new line shall start from Taman Maluri station extending southward along Jalan Cheras to serve the Taman Midah neighborhood centre, Taman Segar district centre and other urban centres up to Kajang.

New Roads Construction and Improvements to Existing Roads

A. Proposed Roads

1. Underground Expressway beneath Jalan Raja Chulan connecting to the Middle Ring Road in the East

2. An inner city by pass road, part of which will be underground, a direct link from Jalan Syed Putra in the south of the City Centre to Jalan Dang Wangi

B Commited Highway/Expressway Projects

1. Dedicated Highway from KL to KLIA
2. Kuala Lumpur towards Serendah Expressway (LEKLAS)
3. Pandan Corridor
4. Kuala Lumpur North East Expressway

Yea....the draft plan is pretty interesting. I've got a copy of it 2 years back and the proposed routes are clearly drawn on the transportation map. ;)

For public transport #1 proposal.....actually they are supposed to start construction already. This goes in tandem with the interchange at Bandar Tasik Selatan which is similar but with more train services :)

# 2 was in the news the other day.....hope they start soon ;)

I just hope they pour in more money to upgrade public transport (esp rail services) instead of building silly things here and there.......

And no more privatisation of public transport please.....we've had enuf. If the govt wants to do that.....do it the Sg way - have a govt body to monitor and govern the system......so the private companies just run the trains for profit. Everyone happy :D

Lets hope that the proposed extensions to the public transportation system get carried out as soon as possible... I'm looking forward to seeing an LRT line in front of 1Utama... I bet this will be one of the most utilized train stops around! The traffic congestion on weekends at that place is horrible and a train service will be most welcome...

Btw, the underground expressway at Jln. Raja Chulan is interesting... Wonder when this one will also start...

Your 1 Utama extension would not be covered in the draft plan cos that area not KL. So I have no idea of the extentions beyond KL :(


Not just 1 Utama....it should go all the way to Sunway, Subang Jaya and USJ as well ;)

5. The western spur of the proposed Damansara-Cheras LRT link serves the Damansara district centre and Taman Tun Dr. Ismail neighborhood centre. This line might extend to the new neighbourhood centre at Penchala.
I think 1U could be covered indirectly since its so near TTDI and Penchala is just beyond Bandar Utama... Apparently i also heard of the LRT being extended all the way to Desa ParkCity next to Bandar Manjalara... Is that true?
