Public Display for LRT Extensions (Update #11)

Update: Prasarana has proposed an alternative location for the integrated depot in Puchong – requiring a second 3-months public display. Click here for more information.

Updated with new photos, images and articles!

Important NOTE: Now that the Public Display is completed there will be a lot of work sorting out the information and reining in the political statements.

TRANSIT notes that the public notice for the extension of the Kelana Jaya LRT Line (a.k.a. LRT Sistem 2 KL) from Kelana Jaya to Putra Heights has been filed and an announcement about the public display has been made public.

A scanned copy of the announcement is here. A summary of the announcement posted at the bottom of this page.

TRANSIT will be following the public display as well as looking at some of the controversies related to the planning of the LRT and the public display throughout the planning and construction process.

We invite your comments and feedback on the construction of the LRT Line extension and hope that these comments will also be shared directly with the Malaysian Government, Selangor Government, Department of Railways and Prasarana as well.

Please remember that, for comments to be considered “official” they have to be sent to the Department of Railways in writing, before 14 December. Postings on the website may not be considered “official”. However, you may be able to email your comments to lrtextensionfeedback@dor.gov.my (and please send a copy of your email to klangvalley.transit@gmail.com or post it here)

We will be creating a special section on our blogsite to follow this topic throughout the period of public display and on through the tendering and construction periods. In addition, you can find more information about objections/comments/concerns related to the LRT proposal here.

You can gather more information & give ‘unofficial’ feedback by visiting the LRT Extension website, http://www.lrtextension.com/

The display will be held during normal office hours i.e. 09:00 to 17:00 from Mondays to Fridays (except public holidays).

The public may also inspect the project proposal at the website of the Department of Railways – www.dor.gov.my

Brief Description of the Project

The project, amongst others, involves the construction of tracks and stations, carparks, purchasing of new fully automated train-sets, signalling system including Automatic Train Protection System, communications system, power supply system and Automatic Fare Collection System.

Invitation to Inspect

Syarikat Praserana Negara Berhad hereby invites all parties and members of the public to inspect the above·said plans, sections and the Book of Reference and all comments or objections to the project must be submitted in writing to the Director General of the Department of Railways at the above address on or before 14 December 2009.

TRANSIT Says:

We have so much to say about the whole public consultation process and the people involved so it is tough to sit everything down into one posting. The easiest way to do it all is to break down the major issues and comment on the public display and how it can be improved.

1. The Public Consultation Process

TRANSIT is not happy with the 3 month public display process mandated within Section 8 of the Railways Act 1991 and feel that a number of amendments are needed.

Our main concern is that the 3month public display actually allows the process of planning and decision-making to be secretive, consfusing, ineffective and not transparent.

The LRT extensions were announced in 2004 but it was only in 2009 that we were able to see the ‘preferred’ alignment showcased at the public display. According to Dato’ Idrose, Prasarana has evaluated 10 different alignments and chosen this one as the most cost-effective and reaching the largest number of people.

However, at no point have any of these alignments been made public. Without data, the public has no way of knowing how these crucial decisions have been made.

TRANSIT believes that the public display process should be broken down into multiple stages. We envision 4 stages of public consultation, namely:

  • Technology & Service Analysis & Selection, where a mode of rapid-transit (LRT, Rapid Tram, BRT) faces a cost benefit analysis and receives public feedback. The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process is started at this stage.
  • Route Alignment Analysis & Selection, in which the top 4-5 route alternatives are made public and the advantages and disadvantages for each are analysed & explained publicly.  The EIA process continues at this stage and looks at specific impacts as the route is selected.
  • Station Placement Analysis & Selection where the locations of stations are determined and feedback is taken from the community. The EIA process at this time must focus on noise, traffic and community impacts.
  • Station Amenities Analysis & Selection where the features of the stations are examined and analyzed by the local community to finalize the details about each & every station.

2. The Feedback Process

TRANSIT is disappointed to note that, while the Department of Railways is responsible for collecting feedback about the railway projects (as an independent regulatory body) the majority of feedback is expected to go directly to the operators.

In addition, the operators are the ones who have created and are managing the websites (lrtextension.com for the LRT) and Aerorail.net (for the Melaka Aerorail).

Because of this, we wonder how much attention the Department of Railways is actually giving to this whole feedback process – despite what the Minister of Transport may say.

Frankly, we are also disappointed that the feedback is being collected in the form of a log book rather than proper forms. It does not give the impression that Prasarana is serious about collecting feedback. After all, how much feedback can be placed in a space that is 2″ wide and 1″ high?

We are surprised that the Department of Railways does not have an official form for the collection of feedback about Railway projects which would be used at all public displays.

3. The Information at the Public Display

The public display in Melaka had a great deal of technical information, whereas the public display for the LRT extensions is light on technical information.

The information about the line & stations is interesting and useful but does not go far enough to answer the critical questions of WHY? and HOW?

We refer here to questions like:

  • Why did you choose this LRT technology?
  • How many people can the LRT carry?
  • How many passengers do you expect to take the LRT?
  • How did you determine these numbers?
  • Why did you choose this location for this station?
  • How many people are you expecting to use this station? and many others……..

The only very specific information that we have found is the noise levels that Prasarana expects the LRT to produce, in comparision with the levels set out by the Department of the Environment. And even the reasoning behind these numbers are unclear. For example, if the numbers Prasarana is using refer to average decibel levels (rather than maximum) then it is quite possible that noise levels could be higher at certain times – possibly higher than the permitted maximum levels.

Regarding the other information, it is too general and gives very little information about what Prasarana and RapidKL are planning to do. Feeder buses are promised but little detail about the routes or communities served is given. Nothing specific is said about walkways, community safety, parking problems, and many other factors except that Prasarana promises that they will take care of things.

Again, this is why we believe that a multi-stage public consultation process is much better than the current system of public display. At this point we should have already figured out the details of route alignment & station location and could focus our attention on things like feeder bus services & walkways for pedestrians.

4. Areas for Improvement

TRANSIT hopes that RapidKL and Prasarana and the Department of Railways will take steps to improve upon their public display efforts by doing the following:

  • Solicit more and better feedback from the public by introducing proper feedback forms with sufficient length for feedback;
  • Request people to share their contact information for future consultation;
  • Print out booklets showing the station locations and make these available to the public;
  • Ask for specific feedback for each station with respect to feeder bus services, parking, walkways, noise levels and other factors;
  • Expand the size of the displays so the public can see large, detailed blueprints of the entire guideway and each station;
  • Connect a printer to the computer to allow people to print out information or their feedback forms and take that information home;
  • Provide proper tokens to the public for their participation – notepads & pens & pins are small tokens but people appreciate the gesture;
  • Have a representative from the Department of Railways present at each public display.

5. The Next Display (and Long-Term Participation)

TRANSIT has heard that the Sg. Buloh – Cheras line will be going for public display in early 2010. We hope that RapidKL and Prasarana will consider our feedback about the public display process and break down the public display into a staged public consultation, beginning in the next few months.

RapidKL and Prasarana should do their best to resolve the route alignment and other general issues about stations through public consultation before they go to the official public display period.

  1. The extension should also include a branch off to connect Subang Airport. This airport is becoming very, very popular now with Fireflyz and it would be a shame if it is not connected to the LRT system. All major cities in the world link their airports to the city and suburbs by train. This is a very convenient opportunity to do so for Subang Airport to be rail-linked to the city and suburbs.

    1. Davindran

      Thank you for your comment about an extension of the LRT to serve the Subang Airport.

      You are correct that all major cities in the world have rail connections to their airports, with a few exceptions (Montreal & Toronto in Canada, for example).

      KL does have a railways connection to KLIA but there is room for a regular public transport connection to Subang Airport. Whether it is a spur from the LRT or KTM line needs to be determined. We have heard about plans to extend the LRT to Shah Alam as well as a Sri Subang KTM line.

      In the meantime, TRANSIT has already started pushing RapidKL for a bus service between Subang Airport and Subang Jaya KTM (and another to Lembah Subang station when it is built). We are also hoping that we can encourage MAS & Firefly to include a stop in Subang Jaya with their proposed KLIA-Subang Airport Shuttle Bus.

      Regards,

      Moaz for TRANSIT

  2. Any chances of the these stations to have an intergrated bus staging/terminus for RapidKL stage buses? Personally, certain stations which could serve as a bus to LRT hub can be built for the benefit of the masses.

    Since we are stressing the needs to improve the Rapid bus services, I hope the LRT extension planner could incorporate such needs. It will brings the present public transportation scene to the next level.

  3. Hi Transit,

    Is there any plan to include the extension to Sunway?

    I mean, if the extension goes all the way to Subang, why leave out Sunway?

    With the addition of a stop at Sunway, people can connect to Sunway/Monash college, Sunway Medical Centre, and of course Pyramid and Resort.

    I’ve read that with all the flyovers, there’s no more space available. How about going underground?

    cheers.

  4. Having viewed the display at DBKL today, here are my comments:

    1) Prasarana hasn’t grasped the concept of transit stations having good commercial prospects. There are very little shops planned into each station and they won’t be able to fully exploit the rental income. They’ll end up with having to build stalls later and this usually jams up the walkways.

    2) They also hasn’t learned much about local transit interchanges and the relationship between buses and rail. None of the plans shows the possibility of a bus terminal cum LRT station; the most you get is a few bays of bus stops.

    3) The “Summit USJ station” seems to be a little too far from the mall proper to play an effective role. I wonder if available land space outside the mall is an issue here. If it is, could they have located the station underground instead? I reckon this translates to 1km of the line underground, tunnelling in as it approaches Persiaran Kewajipan and out at Goodyear Court, the current station’s location.

    Now that the plans are up, I wish the respective local councils could look into their local plans and see how to improve the bike and ride accessibility within 400m of each station. Covered walkways, tree-lined bike lanes, bike storage facilities, you name it. The only way to get more people onto LRT is not to let them get into their cars in the first place. Subang Jaya and USJ can be prime walk/bike to transit communities if the councils can get their acts right.

  5. Hi Ethan, Law Hock Hua

    I agree with you fully.

    There is no cohesiveness or proper planning when it comes to the role of busses.

    If you think about it, there’s only 1 bus terminal in Selangor, and that’s in Pudu Raya.
    Don’t even get me started on KL Sentral as it wasn’t meant to be a bus terminal in the first place.

    I think additional bus terminals should be built in important commercial and residential areas:

    Kota Damansara Bus Terminal
    – Would be able to service commercial areas like Ikea, Ikano, Curve, and the neighbouring 1Utama, and the surrounding residential areas.
    – Would be able to complement the future MRT station that’s being planned.

    Sunway/Subang Bus Terminal
    – Would be able to service commercial areas like Pyramid, Sunway Resort, SS15, Taipan
    – Would be able to service tertiary institutions like Sunway/Monash College, and neighbouring Taylors,Inti and Metropolitan College
    – Would be able to complement the future LRT station that’s being planned in SS15.

    Bangsar/Jalan Duta Bus Terminal (Since it was mentioned that KL Sentral wasn’t meant to cater for busses)
    – Would be able to service commecial areas like Bangsar Shopping Centre, Mid Valley
    – Would be able to service HELP University College, Immigration Department
    – Would be able to complement the current LRT station at Bangsar/Universiti.

    Think of these terminals like a ‘source of a ripple’, servicing its surrounding areas.
    And the connectivity it will bring if these terminals have a route to each other.

    Cheers.

  6. Dear Kelana LRT Building Authorities:
    Please do not be so stubborn in wanting to continue your so-called huge RM7 billion project. The outcome
    by the majority feedbacks show it is just not a feasible route (the Kelana Line 2). The Finance Ministry can
    spent so much money for so many political aspects, so why not just spent some money to modify the planned project. It is easier to do so on paper and mock-ups than to regret having to face the expected problems once built.

    I know it is going to hinder your rice bowl if the plan is not implemented but I am sure all of you are not that poor as not to have enough rice to eat! Please be patient a bit. Just do a little replanning is all I am asking for as the only family victim that would bear more consequences of the Kelana Line 2 once it is been operated heading from Taman Bahagia Station.

    I will tell my architect brother who is in Beijing right now to help. He is coming back end of May. This Melaka urban planning thesis holder was reluctant to listen to me when he came home recently from Shanghai due to I don’t know what. This time I would see if he still like all of you think I am talking rots. Thanks for reading and please please HAVE A HEART!

  7. I have a question on the KL metro routes. Why is all the line are so poor in integration with other lines??? For example the extension line is only going to meet each other in Putra Heights station??? What if I’m in Kelana Jaya and wanted to go to Puchong, so I need to take a long long way to go there???
    Same case for KTM(my case), I need to go to Cheras from Shah Alam, however need to board train in shah alam change line in KL sentral and go south to cheras, but I can reach cheras even faster by using KESAS highway roughly 20 – 30 minutes.

    So overall I can say is, both lines only meet each other in 2 stations(1 in masjid jamek and another in putra heights) Mayb is my eye problem or the integration of all transport is so less until I couldn’t find it, sorry for that. Perhaps we should have more lines serving Klang Valley and all lines must be well integrated with each other.

    I think Prasarana doing their job very well planning the routes, I know it is not an easy job to plan it, they just need more time to plan a more feasible route.

    Thank you

    1. hi @Culprit

      One reason for the poor integration is because each LRT line was built by a separate company and competition was the goal rather than integration and service.

      Competition is also one of the reasons why the first LRT was built alongside the Gombak river (instead of Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman) and using the rail spur to Ampang (instead of Jalan Ampang itself) … to prevent competition with the existing bus operators.

      As for the LRT extension to Putra Heights, one reason for the integration is because Prasarana wants to build an “integrated depot” in Aman Suria, Puchong to serve both the Kelana Jaya and Ampang lines.

      TRANSIT generally believes that Prasarana has planned well but since no information has been provided to justify the paths of the LRT extensions (such as anticipated passenger numbers vs. overall costs) we cannot give full approval. Also, the pathway of the LRT (with the integration in Puchong) is very questionable.

      TRANSIT believes that an upgraded KTM Komuter system would and integrated LRT plan would make the Klang Valley rail network more complete.

      Regards, Moaz for TRANSIT

  8. @Culprit,

    That is exactly I want to say as in my past articles. There are thousands of people facing the same problems – maneuverability! when using LRT/komuter.. They need to travel far away & in different direction to get to the another neighbourhood point. Once the LRT extension & KD-Cheras line completed, what we need next top on the list is the Outer Circle Line!

  9. @transitmy

    I think we shouldn’t blame the poor integration due to different company(err separate company building the LRT or separate company owning the LRT?)…Perhaps co-operation and well planning between both company is significant. Just like singapore, there are 2 company running the MRT but they have succeeded in integrate the MRT line so well, whereby they do not need to tap out and tap in again to move to another MRT or LRT line but LRT in KL do.

    Another question, I noticed that mostly malaysian using public transport especially LRT, are more likely to buy single ticket instead of using tng card. But I have found out the reason why malaysian do not like to use it.
    1) Charge more due to when reloading tng card additional fees are included.
    2) No discount for tng users but pay more.

    I have been taking singapore MRT lately and the systems are incredibly good, ppl who using the ez-link card on any public transport in singapore will be given a discounted price. Same case in Hong Kong, Taipei, Seoul and so on. It is a shame that we malaysian are still using the old ways to pay for the public transport fare. For example the rapidKL bus that do not support tng, Imagine during peak hour and there is plenty of ppl are lining up waiting to board the bus, paying the bus fare 1 by 1 will consume alot of precious time.

    Regards Culprit.

    @Azmi
    Yea, if the outer circle line is built, the commute time between 2 places(outer KL) can be cut to minimum.

    If there is another new MRT line serving subang jaya – KL (straight line to KL without going to Kelana Jaya) it will be great, cutting down the commute time to KL and ppl can use MRT and LRT to travel around subang jaya without driving cars. Thumbs Up.

    1. @Culprit

      Thanks for your comments.

      TRANSIT has no problem with private operators serving a government-linked agency. We do have an issue with private operators who compete with each other, if it leads to poorly planned, isolated, services.

      Our proposed relationship structure would be like this:

      • *The ‘new’ RapidKL would focus on the management, planning & integration of the operations as well as the financial side (fare collection, investment, etc.) and customer service;
      • *Existing bus, LRT & monorail operators would provide services to RapidKL on a contract basis; and
      • *Prasarana would be responsible for procurement & construction of infrastructure.

      As described in our posting “Summary of Urban Public Transport NKRA & Proposed Solutions“, the makeup for the ‘new’ RapidKL board of directors would include DBKL, Federal Territories Minister, representatives from the Selangor government, public transport operators, university professors, and NGOs. This should provide a proper balance of responsibility, accountability & management & planning skills.

      Regards, Moaz for TRANSIT

  10. @Culprit

    I wrote related comments under different header. Yes, if i am a Transport or FT minister, I will fight for the following new lines and extensions :-
    NEW
    1) Cheras – Sg Buloh line (route design as posted earlier). Completed 2013.
    2) Outer Circle line (more or less using LDP alignment as transitmy proposal). Completed 2015.
    3) Inner Circle line (more or less on FT-Selangor border). Completed 2018.
    4a) SJ/Sunway Selayang line (passing highly density areas from Selayang Baru (depot/P&R) > Selayang Jaya (P&R) > MRR2 Link > Jinjang Utara (P&R) > Jln Kepong > Jinjang Selatan (P&R) > Jln Kuching Link (Drop&Ride) > Segambut > Jln Ipoh / Tmn Million > Tmn Golden > Putra PWTC (interchange) >> KL city stations (5-6 stations before moving out at Desa and move along Old Klang road to Sunway. Completed 2020.
    Note : the new station at Putra PWTC must be exactly located in front of The Mall & bus terminal (underground or elevated), in between the current KTM Putra station & LRT PWTC station as both station are located quite far apart, so we can create a good comfortable major (3in1) interchange station with 1 std name.
    4b) SJ/Sunway – Melawati line (passing highly density areas from Tmn Melawati > MRR2 link > Tmn Melati (interchange) > Tmn Ibukota/Danau Kota > Jln Genting Klang > Jln Pahang > Jln Tun Razak >> KL city 5-6 stations before moving out at Desa and move on along Old Klang road to Sunway..
    EXTENSION
    1) Sentul
    2) Ampang
    And I will also work to make klang valley KTM komuter service as MRT system.

    On this time, I am very sure the public transportation ridership rate will increase from current 15% to above 70% just as other developed countries and Klang Valley as the heart of Malaysia economic activities will than be a nice place to breath and live, less toxic emission, less noise pollution, less heat, no late, no stress, no demonstration when oil price increase, more value-added time, more savings, better health, increase productivity and better Malaysia..

    1. Hi @Wong

      Full approval will only be given when all local councils with objections (MPSJ and MBSA) and affected residents involved give approval to the segments.

      Also, Prasarana has to apply for development orders from MBPJ (for Kelana Jaya to Jalan Lapangan Terbang), MBSA (for Jalan Lapangan Terbang which is in Glenmarie, Shah Alam and Subang Alam which is in Shah Alam), and MPSJ (for Bukit Jalil to Puchong, and Subang Jaya, USJ & Putra Heights segments).

      Prasarana did talk about building the LRT in segments, for example, from Lembah Subang to Subang Jaya. We have learned from this article that Prasarana has applied for planning permission for 7 stations in MPSJ areas, but only 2 stations (in Kinrara) have been accepted. We do not know of any applications for development orders at MBPJ or MBSA.

      Regards, moaz for TRANSIT

    1. Hi Francis

      Thanks for your question. For information and updates on the LRT extension projects, visit lrtextension.com. Updates on the Ampang line can be found here.

      From this diagram of the LRT route, we see that the first station of the extension will be located just east of Jalan 3/155 and Jalan 1/155b – which will be within a short distance from the site of the condominium that you are interested in.

      Actual distances to entrances etc are unknown but it looks like you would be 1km – 1.5 km away.

      We hope this information is helpful. For further details and info on the status of the project, please contact feedback@lrtextension.com.

      Regards, Moaz for TRANSIT
