PROJECT BERIEF

Electrified Double Tracking Project Between Subang Jaya and Terminal Skypark was funded by the Government through Ministry of Transport to provide rail based public transport especially to connect the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah (SAAS) Airport Terminal and the vicinity area with the existing railway network.

The proposed project will be mainly based on the current Klang Valley electrified double tracking system which provides the existing commuter services.

The proposed Sri Subang branch line commence from Batu Caves – Pelabuhan Klang Main Line take off point at Km 17.37 of Subang Jaya – Batu Tiga section with a total route length of 8.157km and terminated at Terminal Skypark Station which is located in front of existing Terminal 3, SAAS Airport.

The above project involves 25kV Overhead Catenary System, Modern Signalling and Communication System and also integration with the existing Centralised Train Control (CTC) at KL Sentral. It was envisaged that the shuttle service for commuter will run between Terminal Skypark and KL Sentral once the project completed.

The services could be integrated with the future LRT Extension Project at Subang Jaya Station once both the project completed.

Generally, the above project consists of two main section ie. at grade section in between Subang Jaya and Sri Subang for the length of 4.09km using the existing railway reserve and also the elevated section in between Sri Subang and Terminal Skypark for the total length of 4.067km which is along the existing Sungai Damansara river reserve.

It will involves the construction of one terminal station ie. Terminal Skypark Station at Ch 8000 with the provision of side platform at 150 m length.

Future halt development was also identified at Glenmarie Halt (Ch1975) and Sri Subang Halt (Ch4625) but the implementation of the halt is subject to the demand from the public once the project completed. The proposed alignment is shown as part of the display

Tren elektrik KL-Kuala Kangsar-KL beroperasi tahun depan



LENGGONG 9 Okt. - Perkhidmatan tren elektrik (ETS) Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) bagi laluan Kuala Lumpur-Kuala Kangsar-Kuala Lumpur dijangka beroperasi mulai awal tahun depan.

Pengurus Kanan Pemasaran, KTMB Antarabandar, Mohd. Noordin Kimi berkata, pembukaan stesen terbaharu ETS itu diyakini dapat meningkatkan lagi jumlah penumpang antara lima hingga 10 peratus daripada lebih 3.3 juta pengguna sedia ada.

"Pertambahan laluan ini diharap akan membantu memperkasakan lagi sektor pelancongan di daerah Kuala Kangsar yang mempunyai pelbagai keunikan dan sejarah tersendiri.

"Selain untuk menarik pelancong, perkhidmatan ETS juga dijangka mampu menjadi mod pengangkutan utama buat penduduk tempatan yang bekerja di ibu kota, sekali gus memberi alternatif kepada mereka untuk berulang-alik ke Kuala Kangsar-Kuala Lumpur dalam tempoh kurang daripada tiga jam," katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian dalam siri lawatan KTMB bersama media di Homestay Kampung Beng, Lenggong, di sini hari ini.

Lawatan selama tiga hari bermula Isnin lalu itu bertujuan mendedahkan wakil pelbagai media dengan pelancongan menggunakan kereta api di satu-satunya inap desa yang terdapat di Parlimen Lenggong, sekali gus mempromosikan perkhidmatan ETS bagi laluan Kuala Kangsar.

Dalam perkembangan sama, Noordin memberitahu, penjadualan semula perkhidmatan ETS sejak 1 Oktober lalu pada waktu puncak di sebelah petang diharap dapat membantu mempercepatkan perjalanan penumpang ke destinasi masing-masing.

Jelasnya, bermula dari pukul 4 petang hingga 9 malam, orang ramai berpeluang menikmati kemudahan ETS dalam tempoh setiap satu jam berbanding operasi normal iaitu dua jam sekali.

"KTMB sentiasa berusaha menambah baik perkhidmatannya terutama ETS yang semakin mendapat tempat dalam kalangan pengguna apabila secara purata didapati dinaiki kira-kira 6,000 penumpang dalam sehari," ujarnya.
