Proposed bus route to ease congestion on Federal Highway
By TAN KARR WEI
[email protected]

THE Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) will be seeking public feedback on the proposed Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) next month.

“We have already engaged the public on this matter and we expect to put up a public display for feedback and comments by August,” said SPAD chief development officer Azmi Abdul Aziz during a buka puasa event at the Sime Darby Convention Centre in Kuala Lumpur.

Also present at the event were SPAD chairman Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar and chief executive officer Mohd Nur Kamal.

The BRT is aimed at easing traffic congestion along the Federal Highway.

The first phase of the 17km alignment will start at an integrated station at the Batu Tiga Komuter station in Shah Alam, with dedicated bus lanes going along the median of the Federal Highway.

Strategic stops have been planned along the highway such as near Subang Jaya, Sunway Mentari, Asia Jaya LRT and Universiti LRT stations, with the route ending at Central Market.

“Some areas are not well connected to the LRT lines. The aim is for the buses to provide seamless travel for commuters.

“The buses will travel along the dedicated routes before joining existing bus lanes in the city centre.

“We are still discussing the possibility of going into the Mid Valley Megamall area and through Brickfields because those are high-traffic areas,” said Azmi.

He said the route would eventually connect to the North Klang bus teminal, allowing Klang commuters to travel to Kuala Lumpur city centre or switch to LRT and Kommuter stations along the way.


He disclosed that SPAD had held discussions with stakeholders who would be affected by the construction of the stations and lanes, and it had encountered a lot of resistance to the project.

“A lot of people do not see the benefits that the BRT will bring in the long run.

“The buses can run very frequently and we are looking at park-and-ride facilities along the highway.

“If motorists get caught in a jam, they will have the option to park their cars and hop on a bus to get to the city centre,” he explained.


Azmi added that the route was expected to be finalised before the end of the year and SPAD would call for tenders then.

I see nothing wrong.

BRT is a tested concept in Jakarta and Guangzhou.

Federal highway is already very congested, but many of them are in private vehicles rather than public transport. Public transport is more efficient, but doesn't work at this moment because buses stuck at the same traffic spot as other vehicles on the highway.

With BRT, buses can finally have their own lanes, increasing the speed and reliability of buses, and that will make commuting using bus even more convenient, reliable and fast.

Sometimes, I still do not find the logic of opposing it, because federal highway will always get jam and if there is nothing to be done, it will get even worse.

At least with BRT, bus will be a lot faster, at the same time, capacity of public transport along the corridor will be much higher.

If in Jakarta and Johannesburg, it is high platform bus.

For RapidKL BRT, nothing is confirmed. For Sunway BRT, it will be standard 12 m long bus, with no mention of how high the boarding platform will be.

Gyeongbu Highway in the making. There is no physical barrier and only a blue line to separate bus from car in korea. i don't know how are they going to implement this.

Bear in mind, more people driving the car.

If you have faster option of taking public transport, the attractiveness of taking bus will be better and it will lure more people to take public transport.

Adding one more lane for car is pointless, but in just 2 to 3 years if you have that extra car lane, the same congestion will happen or worse as the peripheral roads connecting the highway and the local neighbourhood will remain the same.

Hence the sensible option in longer term to relieve congestion is to add bus lane.

BRT is different.

In Jakarta case, you have stone barrier and stations just like LRT style. Jakarta so macet can do it, why not KL?

Even Bangkok successfully run BRT.

Sometimes, I wonder if those who oppose BRT, then what is their suggestion that can reduce congestion in longer run? wink.gif

It seems they (car drivers) like to see themselves suffering traffic congestion (afterall traffic volume will always increase) for the rest of the life and see nothing to be done.
