View Full Version : MRT Not Linked to Sentral
18-02-2011, 12:00 PM
The proposed [MRT] plans appear to show that the MRT will not have an interchange with KL Sentral — the city’s main transport hub — despite having a station with the same name.
Instead, it will have its train stop separated from the Sentral station by a substantial gap, reminiscent of the much criticised monorail station which also stops short of the KL Sentral hub.
Everyone had been cursing on the very stupid 'Monorail not linked to Sentral' blunder and now this is going to happen again!
Seems like something fishy is going on..

Didn't you read about 'feeder buses'?
What to do when you have turkeys do the planning? You expect turkeys to be able to soar like eagles? Just look at our neighbour's airport. Terminal 1 2 and 3 are fully integrated and it takes all of less than 10 minutes to get to the other terminals via free monorail. And here we have a main airport that is not connected to the lcct and we are going to have a new lcct and no one knows what we are going to do with the old one. Sorry our neighbour also has a lcct but again shuttle buses send you there in less than 15 minutes frequency and again free. Some more want to integrate our mrt/lrt or what have you. First the gomen will have to pay a kings ransom to the operators and at the end it will still have a system that is simply not integrated because the initial planning was not there in the first place. They are very good at sending pooliticians for study tours to paris, new york, tokyo , london to study their systems and we end up with a pile of junk which becomes obsolete even before they are commissioned. look at london's system which are many many years old and yet they are still running well. Its all about planning and again if turkeys can plan they would not end up on the dining table.

Malaysia should go down south and learn from Singapore how they're able to have efficient & reliable MRT Network throughout an area smaller than KL & Klang Valley.

hahahaa... when turkeys are sent for study tours - they only learn about "thanksgiving"... then when they come back and put into practise - how to give thanks to their benefactors... :rolleyes:
have yet to see any of these turkeys end up ROASTED... !!
it ain't rocket science - but then again, most - if not all of these fellas are only armed with [I]honorary degrees... :p ;)
Or maybe never even finished their degree courses. they attended which is not wrong technically when they say that they studied economics at nottingham university. Only you fellas pandai pandai assumed he passed and in doing so made him an economist by training!!

Hehehe ... :rolleyes: :rolleyes: I "like" to think that the Govt is worried about OUR HEALTH and OBESITY rate - so WALK THE GAP hahhahahaa .... :p :D - better still if they put 3 flight of steps and a few obstacles/hurdles along the way :D rather than some poor "architect" misread 300 metres on the blueprint for 3 metres (or something like that) !!! :D :D

Why concern about the line not connected to KL Sentral?
The MRT route alignment is crappy to start with, and there is no reason to have another line crossing KL Sentral.
Connectivity is already the biggest flaw in the route planning. (http://www.usj.com.my/bulletin/upload/showthread.php?p=494493#post494493) :eek: If one ever wanted to save petrol to use public transport (LRT/MRT/KTM/XXX) to get from Subang Jaya or USJ (assuming that the Kelana Line extensions runs into Subang Jaya and USJ), you probably cud not get to 1U or the Curve although the new line has been planned to pass thru these places. Or, if it cud, one will probably have to take a big round trip to get there according to the proposed alignment of the MRT line. :eek: In d n, might as well drive and park there instead. ;)

The general impression of public transport in Malaysia is that it is never given much thought and planning ahead. Hence there wasn't a synergy to make everything work as a system... so every subsequent systems proposed would have a problem being integrated into the existing ones or would involved a lot of money to be integrated.
After making their money, the bus operators are looking to cash out now and hoping that the gomen would buy over their ailing companies (from mismanagement) at prices way above what anyone would want to pay for such distressed companies and they will walk away with a big stash of cash in their pockets.

MRT: Failed Integration Test
The proposed MRT system fails the integration test and poses the question as to whether the Gamuda-MMC driven project and designed alignment serves the interest of the public transport users, or other hidden commercial interest.
What confounds us further is the fact that there is plenty of space to build an MRT station next to the bus terminal which is also supported by a fairly large open space car park at this point in time. In fact, from press reports, we are made to understand that an underground carpark can also be built underneath the existing Central Park next to the bus terminal. It doesn’t take a traffic consultant or an MRT specialist to conclude that the existing site for the Bandar Utama station is a very very bad idea.
I wonder how can anyone get the stupid planning of the MRT across to the people concerned.
