Good news for sunway-subang folks

Najib launches country’s first bus rapid transit project
By RAZAK AHMAD


SUBANG JAYA: The Government's efforts to further improve public transportation received another boost with the launch of the country's first bus rapid transit (BRT) project by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak Saturday.

The BRT comprises of buses traveling either on a network of dedicated bus lanes or on purpose-built elevated lanes, complementing the My Rapid Transit (MRT)currently under construction in the Klang Valley.

Speaking at the inauguration of the project, Najib said the government and related authorities would continue to find viable solutions to address the Klang Valley's traffic congestion.

“The usage of public transport is still low at 17 percent and our target is to push it up to 40 percent by 2020. This will help us achieve the target and we hope that with this project, the urban transport landscape in this country will be something we can be proud of,” said Najib.

The first BRT service, expected to start in the second quarter of 2013, will allow the 500,000 residents in Bandar Sunway and Subang to connect more easily to existing light-rail transit (LRT) systems which currently does not serve their neighbourhoods.

The BRT-Sunway line, covering over 6km via 7stations, will connect Bandar Sunway and Subang commuters with the Kelana Jaya LRT Extension Line at USJ6 and with the KTMB Setia Jaya station near the Federal highway.

The BRT initiative is part of the Government Transformation Programme (GTP) Urban Public Transport National Key Result Area (NKRA), which aims to encourage higher public transport ridership. The project is being built under a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) between the Government owned Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad and Sunway Berhad. Prasarana chairman Tan Sri Ismail said the total cost of the project was still being worked out and that the public would be invited to provide feedback on the proposed alignment of the BRT route once it was ready.

Land Public Transport Commission Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar said the Sunway line was the first of 12 BRT lines proposed for the Klang Valley.

More bus but lousy bus stop and lousy authority control make no difference. I guess it will worsen the traffic. First example, ss16 carrefour bus stop. Full of rude and non meter taxi, all parked at bus stop which is slow lane. When the bus come, the bus have to stop at middle lane, and left the last lane for car to pass

BRT differemt-la bro. Its like tram service but using bus i.e. designated lane. Anyway with the BRT & lrt, should eliminate 'rude taxis' as competition will be increased.

BRT is a fully segregated bus lane with boarding and ticketing procedure similar to LRT.

Such concept has been used in Jakarta, Seoul, Johannesburg, Cape Town.

Some parts of the Sunway BRT will be elevated.

The problem with LRT to Sunway is that there is large flyover which blocks the construction at suitable gradient.

Besides, the Bandar Sunway taskforce did say if no LRT, then BRT is the next best thing.

Do not worry on BRT, because it has almost similar service level to LRT. Only BRT buses for BRT line, as well as same ticketing system as LRT/MRT.

Dun think the flyover is the problem..they can cut thru federal highway on the ktm side...must be some Sunway other intention and motive

BUT why to Summit? Doesnt make sense..who wants to go to summit and change station to KL??

Best place for main station is icon pj...butt he idiot prasana go and waste large sum of allocation to build a big station at glenmarie which nobody wants

Again, I doubt you can run LRT to Icon City because it is so build up. Glenmarie is easier because running through Subang Airport road has gentle curve.

Another thing is as the extension runs from Lembah Subang depot, building the line towards LDP to Icon City is very unlikely, due to the lack of available space.

For Icon City, the solution is simple. Build a proper walkway to KTM Setia Jaya.

For someone to use Sunway BRT, wanting to travel to KL. The fastest is the person to take BRT to BRT station next to KTM Setia Jaya. Then from there take KTM Komuter to KL Sentral.

Changing station is not hard at all. As long as the ticketing system covers different lines. In fact when I was in Shanghai and Singapore, many of the trips made on metro still requires transfer, but the difference is that in these cities, transfers are made much more convenient.

BRT concept is proven in Bangkok, Seoul and Cape Town.

The ticketing system of the BRT will be the same as LRT and future MRT.

When developing rail line, Prasarana considers factors such as:

- The ease of building the line

- The population catchment

- Travelling time

And so, they decided the LRT extension should be like this.

Kelana Jaya station ------> Lembah Subang ----> Kelana Jaya Centre Point -----> KTM Subang Jaya.

Had they consider to route the whole thing to Icon City, there is an issue that the alignment will be too far and has much higher percentage to receive objection (in court) as that alignment needed to go all the way Icon City will pass through heavily built residential area.

Other factors considered during alignment planning are curve radius (Kelana Jaya line can handle up to 100 m curve radius) and gradient up to 6% (limit of Kelana Jaya line).

If any blame, blame it on government and the authorities wink.gif

The first bus rapid transit project in Malaysia has been launched. The BRT alignment consists of ground level section as well as elevated section. The distance is about 6 kilometres and consists of 7 stations. Each of the end stations (first and last stations) are linked with nearby railway stations.

The project will undergo public display this year to get comments from the public.

By mid-2013, construction may start.

They target to open the BRT line in conjunction with the completion of Kelana Jaya line extension.

Sunway is willing to contribute the cost of BRT line, that means Sunway does see the potential of the BRT line.

The BRT will run from Kelana Jaya line extension in USJ6 to KTM Setia Jaya station, passing areas such as Summit USJ, Monash/Sunway University, Sunway Pyramid, Sunway Mentari.

Totally oppose this BRT thing. We are solving 1 problem and in the process creating another 1.

Please don't forget that there will be a dedicated lane specially for BRT buses, hence we, residents/motorists will be denied a lane & even if sunway widen the road, we are still back on square one! What increase? Rubbish! vmad.gif

At the end of the day, the BRT will definitely increase the convenience of taking public transit in the area.

In fact, the demand of BRT was made by the residents back in 2010.
