    Future LRT service into Subang and USJ

    A short time ago, (June or July) someone posted information about government plans for an LRT extension into Subang Jaya.

    If anyone has more information about these plans, please contact me or reply to this post. I am very interested in Public Transport planning and design. I think that these areas of planning absolutely must have community involvement, feedback and approval.

    Regards

    Well... i have heard that Sunway Group is negotiating with Star LRT to extend their service from Kelana Jaya into Sunway and link it with their own monorail system... Maybe it will materialized in the future... 10, 20 years maybe?

    There were talks of a puchong LRT a few months ago by this puchong assemblyman Dr.kow, maybe you can phone him up on the status.

    I believe sunway, puchong, subang LRT will be build on the same phase because they are so near each other.

    If you care to read some of the advertisements in the national newspapers by housing developers in Puchong/Kinrara area, you will see that they actually indicated the proposed new routes of LRT in their advertisement. If I am not mistaken, the LRT route will be extended from Sri Petaling to bandar Puchong Jaya, infront of IOI mall. If they dare to advertise it in the national newspapers , they must have known something that we ordinary rakyat don't. This is actually a great news to me. But the main question is WHEN? If it is in 10 or 15 years time, I and our kawanbaru, mykern, are already retired.

    Just test them. Ask them to put their money where their mouth is. Ask them to contract that if it doesn't happen within 5 years, you will get 20% of your money back.

    We Malaysians need to be tougher against these big-mouthed contractors. And from what I understand the contractors along the Puchong - Bukit Jalil road are the worst of the lot.
    See you...

    Those housing developers are among the biggest conman of all times!
    Just flip thru any weekend newspaper and you'll see lot of those misleading adverts. The map they show is never according to actual scale. Sepang can be as near as just beside KL, and the all of the so called "Proposed" U turn on the highway here, "Proposed" highway link there, "Proposed" LRT and etc...
    Me got a fren who bought a house at area between Bukit Jalil & Puchong, where the developer promised there will be a Bukit Jalil Puchong highway U turn right in front of his housing estate when he receive the house... after 3 years receiving the house... still no sign of the so called U turn on the Bukit Jalil-Puchong Highway. Now if he need to go to Bukit Jalil direction, he'll need to drive all the way down to Bandar Kinrara there and make a U-turn which is quite far away.

    Sometimes those conmen even went outstation to con other ppl, like my fren in my hometown one day just called me suddenly to ask whether it's only 10 minutes walking distance from the Tiara Ville (under construction just beside mesiniaga) to Sunway Pyramid and also 10 minutes walking distance to Taylor & Inti... which was told by the salesgirl promoting the apartment in Kuching.

    Those ppl will just tell you anything you wanted to hear just to sell you a unit...

    I suggest you get hold of the Selangor Structure Plan (Draft version) released in July 2005, study the transportation chapter and then contact the State Planning Department in Shah Alam and discuss with them your needs. You can also contact our Majlis Perbandaran Subang Jaya (MPSJ)l. Also watch out for the MPSJ Local Plan which should be tabled for objection anytime now. Forget about those developers. They are not the ones building their LRTs. In fact they are the ones building castles in the air. They will do anything even to lie about those proposed LRT just to sell their houses. If there is any LRT coming, the Selangor Structure Plan will have it in their map.

    Yes, I don't care much for what they say...I remember the one developer that had a Proposed AEL running from Seremban to KLIA on their development.

    Which office in the MPSJ do I need to contact to get the Selangor Structural Plan? Or, alternatively, can someone on this forum provide me with a copy of the file?

    Thanks very much.

    and here is a map from the DBKL Structural Plan

    I am attaching a file that shows the DBKL structural plan which includes future LRT transit plans.

    Sadly, there is not enough information...such as where the stations will be located, what type of LRT will be used, etc.

    Basically there is a plan for a line to Cheras, extensions from Sentul Timur northwards, and a line to Damansara.

    I dont understand the line that runs parallel to the KTM laluan Pel. Klang. Perhaps someone else knows about this. I put some quotes from the DBKL plan below:

    "The major growth areas in Kuala Lumpur are now well linked to the City Centre except those on the east-west axis. The feasibility of a new Damansara - Cheras LRT line linking growth areas in the east and west shall be investigated together with new rail links to serve district centres, comprehensive development areas and growth areas.

    "It is also proposed that the STAR LRT line from Sentul Timur station be extended northward towards Taman Wahyu and westward towards Kepong and another line be extended from Sri Petaling station westward to serve the area around Bukit Jalil.
    A further extension to the LRT is proposed from KL Sentral station to the proposed district centre at Bukit Indah. These five future lines will add a further 41.9 kilometres to the existing network."


    Kind regards

    PS. I had to crop the picture a little bit so that it would fit for uploading. However, all the relevant info is there.

    read below received today .......

    No firm confirmation on this yet. To build an extension, it will take at least five years as we need to acquire land etc.

    Hope this answers your question.

    Thank you.

    Statement from the DAP on Public Transit

    I have snipped this item from the DAP's reply to the government budget for 2006. It is the DAP's statement on Public Transport.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    DAP Response to Malaysia 2006 Budget
    8. Investing In Public Transportation
    While the utilization of public transport has declined from 34 % in 1985 to 16 % currently, Malaysia’s registered vehicles will reach 14 million units this year. Such high vehicle usage is extraordinary for a country of 26 million people.

    Public transportation in most countries are subsidised by the government but it is clearly not the case in Malaysia. The Government had no problem in subsidising national car producers for the past two decades to perpetuate an automobile society. It has also been building one after another public road for the use of private vehicles but had never been serious about subsidising public transportation. It is time to call for a paradigm shift from our automobile dependence culture in the face of increased international petrol prices.

    DAP calls on the Government
    • To redirect the RM 2.3 billion savings from petrol subsidy to improve public transport system with the ultimate aim of reducing the dependence on private vehicles that consume so much of petrol products;
    • To scrap the RM 1.3 billion 26km-KL-Putrajaya dedicated highway;
    • To scrap the RM 368 million 18km-Putrajaya Monorail Project.

    DAP is of the view that existing roads to Putrajaya and an efficiently run bus system are good enough to serve the need of Putrajaya, a city of 70,000 commuters and residents.

    The RM 3.968 billion savings from the above three sources should be channeled:
    • To build a 10km extension for Kelana Jaya Line (formerly known as Putra LRT) from its Subang Depot to Sunway, Subang Jaya and USJ, catering for a population of 300,000. (Cost: RM 600 million)
    • To extend Seri Petaling Line (formerly known as STAR LRT) from Seri Petaling to Puchong to cater for another 200,000 people. (Cost: RM 600 million)
    • To extend Ampang Line (formerly known as STAR LRT) to the Greater Cheras areas (including parts of Selangor), catering for 500,000 people. (Cost: RM 600 million).
    • To increase the number of LRT coaches, feeder buses and parking spaces around LRT stations by four fold. (Cost: RM 600 million)
    • (The cost of the original Putra and STAR LRTs were RM 2 billion and RM 3.5 billion respectively.)
    • To add 3,000 buses, each at a cost of RM 200,000, to create a Bus Rapid Transit System in the Klang Valley, modeling after the success story of Brazil’s Curitiba. (Cost: RM 600 million)
    • To invest the remaining RM 968 million into the management of a world class integrated public transportation system in Kuala Lumpur and other major cities in the country.

    What are your thoughts about this statement?

    Regards, M.

    This is very much in the right direction.

    Here are some other essential points which should be included (specifically focussing on making public transporation attractive and practical):

    - Every station should be accessed with at least 3 escalators (1 up, 1 down and 1 to go with the peak flow and as spare) and 1 lift. Handicapped, elderly and families with children should not have to negotiate a single stair step.

    - The stations should be equipped with significantly more waiting seats.

    - There should be sufficient amount of coaches for people not to have to stand up except for in emergency cases.

    - The coaches should be redesigned so that seats are perpendicular and not parallel to the travelling direction. This is both a security, efficiency and comfort requirement. The distance between the seats should be such that it becomes possible to read a paper, a book or work on a notebook.

    - A relatively cheap but popularity driving feature would be to equip LRT stations and coaches with free WiFi.

    - Drop off and pick up lanes, as well as bus-lanes, should be so designed that they do not block any lane of the main road, especially at peak hours.
    See you...
