Perkhidmatan kereta api elektrik antara Ipoh dan Kuala Lumpur akan beroperasi dengan 8 "return trips" setiap hari bermula pada bulan Ogos depan menurut Menteri Pengangkutan, Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha.

WZWH sungguh teruja dengan berita ini. Satu perkembangan yang baik kepada sejarah perkhidmatan pengangkutan awam. WZWH juga mahu lihat dan mencadangkan kepada Kerajaan Negeri Pahang dan Kementerian Pengangkutan supaya Projek Kereta Api Elektrik antara Kuantan dan Kuala Lumpur dibina untuk memajukan lagi sistem perkhidmatan awam Malaysia dan juga bagi kemudahan rakyat Pahang dan pelancung.

Dengan adanya Projek Kereta Api Elektrik Kuantan-KL ini boleh memajukan lagi ekonomi negeri Pahang ini. Diharap YAB MB Pahang, DS Adnan Yaakob berminat dengan projek seumpama ini.

WZWH percaya YAB PM DS Najib sudah tentu akan menyokong penuh projek ini yang menguntungkan dan memberi faedah ekonomi kepada negeri Pahang.


Ipoh-KL electric train service to start early next month

July 27, 2010

BATU GAJAH, July 27 — The electric train service (ETS) between Ipoh and Kuala Lumpur will start operations in the first week of August with eight return trips daily, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said today.

At a fare of between RM30 and RM35, each trip would take about two hours and would only stop at selected stations, he told reporters at the launch of Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad’s Complex by the Sultan of Perak Sultan Azlan Shah here today.

Kong said the number of stops for the ETS service had to be reduced to meet the estimated time for each trip, besides giving passengers a comfortable journey.

“Each trip will use one set of ETS train which comprises six coaches... each coach has a capacity of 50 passengers and the total number of passengers for each trip will be between 300 and 350,” he said.

Meanwhile, Kong said the RM78 million complex built on a 60-hectare site would house the KTMB Academy development centre, train maintenance depot and workers’ quarters.

“The modern infrastructure made available at this complex will also enable KTMB to increase its productivity, especially when highly-skilled personnel were produced by the academy.

“The Transport Ministry is also optimistic that the complex will play a vital role in KTMB’s sustainable development,” he said.

He said the academy would also function as an Asean train excellence centre since the proposal was being discussed by train operators from Asean countries. — Bernama
