Talks on LRT and bus terminal projects
Published on: Saturday, May 23, 2009

Kota Kinabalu: The Transport Ministry and Kota Kinabalu City Hall have agreed to refer the proposed southern bus terminal and Kota Kinabalu LRT projects to a special committee chaired by the State Secretary to determine the suitability of their implementation.

Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri said the reason being that the site earmarked for the projects was in a security buffer zone area because it was near the airport. :cheers:

He said the Kota Kinabalu City Hall was also asked to submit a risk assessment report to the Transport Ministry and to cooperate with Malaysia Airports Berhad to integrate the planned hubs with the Kota Kinabalu airport master plan.

"This decision has helped resolve the negotiations on the proposed projects which have dragged on for so long between the Kota Kinabalu City Hall and the Transport Ministry," he said when asked on the matter, Friday.

Abdul Rahim said the Kota Kinabalu City Hall planned to build the bus terminal on a 30 acre site near the airport, but the Civil Aviation Department objected to it for security reasons.

It was also feared that by having a bus terminal there would cause traffic congestion on the main road leading to the city, he added.

Sinsuran facelift to begin this year
Published on: Saturday, May 23, 2009



Kota Kinabalu: Plans are afoot to rejuvenate the ailing Sinsuran complex into a new vibrant commercial area in the city.

City Hall through a private company initiative would undertake the work on all the 10 blocks of commercial buildings, subsequently turning the area into a "must-visit" place.

The upgrading works would involve, among others, transforming the existing blocks into a two-level shopping arcade with a wide central staircase, wide pedestrian walkways and canopies over the existing pedestrian mall.

The walkways between the shop blocks will be turned into modern pedestrian arcades with paved floors and hard landscapes, fitted with new public amenities and alarm surveillance system.

Expected to begin sometime this year, the upgrading will start with repairs to the sanitary plumbing and soil pipes, leakage and repainting of the buildings, replacing and repairing of concrete.

Mayor Datuk Iliyas Ibrahim said the transformation of the Sinsuran complex is badly needed in view of the deteriorating condition and safety of some of the shophouses, which had got the public concerned.

The Sinsuran complex was built in the 1970s, he said, and is located near the five-star Le Meridien Hotel, the Warisan Square and the proposed Kota Kinabalu waterfront development.

Apart from the ground floor, where most of the economic and business activities are concentrated, the upper floors have less commercial value due to its unattractive conditions and conventional designs.

Kompleks mahkamah baru RM260 juta di Likas

KOTA KINABALU 29 Mei - Sebuah kompleks mahkamah baru akan dibina di Likas dekat sini, dengan kos RM260 juta bagi menggantikan mahkamah sedia ada yang sudah sesak.

Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz berkata, mahkamah baru itu akan dibina di kawasan seluas dua hektar atas tanah milik kerajaan negeri.

"Kompleks mahkamah ini akan dibina sebelum Rancangan Malaysia Kesembilan (RMK-9) berakhir atau pada awal RMK-10. Ini kerana mahkamah sedia ada sudah agak kurang selesa.

"Walaupun begitu, kerajaan akan kekalkan bangunan mahkamah sedia ada bagi urusan beberapa mahkamah," katanya pada sidang akhbar selepas melawat Kompleks Mahkamah Kota Kinabalu di sini semalam.

Katanya, selain kompleks mahkamah itu, dua bangunan mahkamah baru di Beaufort dan Semporna kini berada pada peringkat akhir pembinaan dan dijadualkan siap hujung tahun ini.

Beliau memberitahu, kos bangunan mahkamah baru di Beaufort menelan belanja kira-kira RM5.2 juta manakala di Semporna RM7.5 juta.

Kerajaan juga katanya, akan menaik taraf bangunan mahkamah di Kota Kinabalu, Tawau dan Keningau tahun ini dengan kos RM1.7 juta.

"Sepanjang tahu lalu pula, kita sudah menaik taraf 19 buah mahkamah dengan peruntukkan RM2.7 juta antaranya di Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan, Kota Marudu, Kudat, Lahad Datu dan Papar," katanya.

Sementara itu, beliau berkata, kerajaan sedia menimbang permintaan pihak pengurusan mahkamah di negeri ini yang mahukan kenderaan pacuan empat roda dan bot laju.

Menurut Nazri, ini kerana kenderaan itu akan dijadikan pengangkutan utama untuk digunakan oleh pihak mahkamah bergerak bagi kegunaan di kawasan pedalaman.
