The JB Sentral was designed to upgrade the existing railway station at Johor Bahru in response to the increasing demand of rail commuters.

New bus and taxi pick up points are provided along Jalan Jim Quee to enhance this new rail station.

Two (2) multilevel car parks (comprising 726 car parking bays) are situated over both sides of the JB Sentral to provide parking facilities for the entire project.

Penang Sentral

Project : Penang Sentral
Scale : 1 : 300
Client : Veritas Architects













Work on Penang Sentral to start soon
2008/10/31



GEORGE TOWN: Work on the first phase of Penang Sentral in Butterworth is expected to start before the end of the year when the relocation of hawkers at the current site is completed. Malaysian Resources Corporation Berhad (MRCB) director Datuk Ahmad Ibnihajar said the relocation would be carried out soon.

He added that the temporary terminal could accommodate up to 62 hawkers, compared to 50 at the Penang Port Commission's three-storey bus complex destroyed in a 2001 fire.

"We have handed over the temporary hawker centre to the local council, and the relocation process is up to them," he said after handing over school supplies to 300 underprivileged pupils under MRCB's "Pintar" project.

Ahmad, however, said the relocation was only expected to begin after all the stage and express bus operators had moved to the temporary terminal next month.

The temporary terminal was completed in July but to date, only RapidPenang has begun operating there.

Ahmad said work on the first phase, expected to cost RM300 million, should be completed by 2013, comprising bus and taxi terminals, and retail outlets.

The 12.8ha Penang Sentral project is jointly undertaken by Pelaburan Hartanah Bumiputera Berhad (PHBB) and MRCB.

The integrated terminal for rail, road and sea travel is one of many major projects aimed at strengthening Penang's role as a logistics and transportation hub for the Northern Corridor Economic Region.

Plan for rail station modified
Tuesday August 26, 2008
TheStar

SEVERAL modifications are being made to the original plan to build a new railway station for Kuala Kangsar at Kampung Simpang Tiga, a traditional Malay village located at the fringe of the royal town.

Manong assemblyman Datuk Ram-ly Zahari said the construction of KTM Bhd’s workers’ quarters would be relocated to the existing railway station at Jalan Sultan Idris, about 5km from the new railway station.

“The new railway station’s par-king lots will also be relocated away from Kg Simpang Tiga, enabling us to spare more houses (from demolition),” he told reporters during the Kuala Kangsar parliamentary constituency 51st Merdeka celebration recently.

Ramly, who is also Perak Umno secretary, said originally 35 houses in Kg Simpang Tiga would be demolished but developer Gamuda MMC later agreed to demolish only half the number.

“Land owners will also be adequately compensated and paid the commercial rate even though their land is officially designated as agriculture land,” said Ramly.

Kuala Kangsar MP Tan Sri Rafi- dah Aziz, who earlier handed over wheelchairs and cash aid to fire victims in Wai Thong Garden, said villagers affected by the railway project should adopt a “give and take” attitude.

“We have to make some sacrifices for the sake of development,” said Rafidah who is also Umno Wanita chief.

Rafidah said there was a need for a new railway station as the existing one was located at a sharp bend in Jalan Sultan Idris, rendering it unsuitable for fast-moving trains to make a stop.

At the event, Rafidah also handed Merdeka awards comprising a cash prize of RM500 and certificate each to nine recipients who excelled in various fields.
