Penang Monorail – Air Itam Line

April 22nd, 2016 Leave a comment

Ayer-Itam-monorail

Besides the Bayan Lepas belt, the other two relatively high density development corridors in Penang Island are the western Ayer Itam and northern Tg Tokong corridors. Adopting a similar approach by matching system capacity with projected travel demand, the monorail system has been identified as the most appropriate mode for both the Ayer Itam and Tg Tokong corridors.

Among the considerations made in arriving at the proposed monorail system (as opposed to other rail or BRT forms), include its better performance with respect to a narrower right-of-way (ROW) requirement, better noise performance and lower capital requirement. However, the final transit system for the Ayer Itam corridor would still be subject to future review prior to implementation by re-evaluating the travel demand, development intensity, transit system capacity, target modal share, socio-economic and socio-political reception of the proposed system, be it elevated or at-grade (on-ground) at the time of execution.

For the 12.8km Ayer Itam Monorail, the alignment will begin from KOMTAR and terminate at Paya Terubong with 13 stations. The transit line will improve transit reach to predominantly low- and medium-income residents in high-density neighborhoods in Ayer Itam and Paya Terubong areas.

    Tuan,
    Saya sangat bangga dengan cadangan yang bakal akan dikendalikan di Pulau Pinang dan sangat menakjubkan dengan plan yang berterusan ini dapat dijayakan seterusnya atas sokongan penduduk di Pulau dan juga penusaha yang berpengalaman.

    Saya seperti nama diatas adalah seorang ibu tunggal kepada dua anak saya dan juga menjaga ibu dan bapa yang lumpuh atas bantuan saya dan kebajikan.Dengan ini saya ingin membuat perniagaan atas bantuan kerajaan atau keajikan.

    Dengan ini saya bercadangkan dan ingin membuat permintaan awal untuk saya mendapatan izin dari pihak atasan yang berkuasa untuk mengadakan atau mendirikan sebuah kedai kecil di mana-mana Station atau di Depot atau pun di interchange.

    Sekiranya dapat perhatian atas permintaan saya dan kelulusan. Saya amat bersukacitanya menerima dan memperjuangkan minat saya untuk menjayakan perniagaan kecil dikawasaan tersebut.

    Yang Mengharap,
    Goujiyaa

    Suggest to extend/have the monorail line to Farlim aka Bandar Baru AIr Itam.
    Farlim is a mass market township where consists of major low and low medium cost apartment.
    This can be seen RapidPenang bus 202 & 203 become ‘Sardine Fish Tin’ bus for 3 peak hour daily.
    This Farlim line can be 3rd line from Komtar to Jalan Jelutong, Jalan Perak, Jalan Free School then to Lebuhraya Thean Teik and terminate at Jalan Paya Terubong interchange with Bomba PT station.
    All these are high dense area and serve well known popular primary & secondary school.

    Hope PTMP / SRS will consider.
    Thank you.
    Farlim Resident
