NO "sweets", only "CANDY PAPER" : Budget Review Summary (pt.II)

(picked form malaysiakini.com)

Mass transit taking us nowhere? Pt 2
Moaz Yusuf Ahmad Aug 27, 08 1:31pm
In the case of the extension of the Kelana Jaya LRT line to Subang Jaya, USJ, and Putra Heights I have already expressed my disapproval for the project.
I still do not believe that this proposed extension is a wise decision to make. It will be a costly mistake, potentially tying up funds that could be used to build mass transport lines elsewhere in the Klang Valley or Penang, where they are more desperately needed.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT =>
*a more efficient, reliable and integrated public transportation, which provides seamless travel and greater frequency of services, is required.

*a sum of RM35 billion will be expended

*The existing LRT system in the Klang Valley will be extended by 30 km

*for Kelana Jaya and Ampang lines.

*35 train carriages for the Kelana Jaya Line have been procured costing RM1.3 billion

*a new LRT line will be built along a 42 km route from Kota Damansara to Cheras

*now you know how huge volume of the new train carriages needed in our country !??

*The Government also took over the assets and operations of KL Monorail

by scomi

*An additional 13 new units of EMUs will be acquired

*huge number of new rail lines and new carriages needed to be invested !

I still remember I had written an article [ Do this also you CAN NOT! ] early last month to expressed my disappointment on this city public transport system.

I'm really doubt about the government ability to create an integrated system which will effectively link up the existing rails provider (LRT, Monorail, Komuter) with road buses and taxi.

Politics like dirty trick games; politicians alike swimming with the tide ! While we are inside muddy water, it's hard to see what is surrounding us! Shark? Ghost or gold? Danger? Threat or inducement? What do we expect? As an outsider able to observe things more clearly as [ the 3rd PARTY ] !
