Yeah, I made good on my promise to visit the Open Day. It is being held at MidValley Convention Centre Hall 3 on Sunday, 13 February 2011. Below are some pictures I got from the exhibition.
I don’t agree with the capacity argument for BRT system, which imho is not at full capacity yet
What is SPAD going to do, in the meantime, while the whole of KL awaits the MRT? All these suggestions should be in place and rolling out, instead of being put up on the Open Day. How much of these are being implemented at all?
After visiting the Open Day, I felt that it was more of a PR exercise than actually engaging the public in getting feedback. Are they going to make public the feedback from the public? Tables, bars, charts, statistics, analyses, actions, etc.
I don’t know if I am for or against the KVMRT project, but since only the stretch from Semantan to Maluri is underground, why is it so expensive as to cost over RM36bil? Most of the line (41.5km of 51km) is elevated.
Why is it the MRT line is built along highways where it is not a high density area? Plaza Phoenix? Seriously? PJ Section 16 and 17? At the edge or heart of those areas? Why is the KL Sentral station not located inside KL Sentral itself? Why is there a need to connect to Pasar Seni, which is just one station after KL Sentral?
I also saw information on the proposal for feeder bus routes from suburban MRT stations, when we can’t even readily find such information for our current LRT, Monorel and Komuter stations. Why is that? Seems like SPAD is more interested to promote MRT than solving current problems with public transport.
What is SPAD going to do about providing bus information on all the bus stops in Klang Valley (maybe Malaysia too)? I took a bus from Bangsar LRT station to MidValley, and I can’t find any information about what buses are making a stop at that particular station.
There are many other bus companies beside rapidKL (i.e. Metrobus, SJbus, Selangor, etc). Where can we find the information about their bus routes?
