Proposed LRT Stations – Bayan Lepas Line

April 7th, 2016 Leave a comment

LRT-MAP1

Bayan Lepas LRT, the very first LRT line in Penang, will be about 30 km in length with 27 stations running from KOMTAR to the future reclaimed islands in the south.

Besides passing through must-go-points at KOMTAR, Bayan Lepas FIZ and the Penang International Airport, the line will also serve established and planned residential townships and employment hubs in Jelutong, The Light, Gelugor, Batu Uban, SPICE in Bayan Baru, Sg Tiram and Batu Maung.

The proposed alignment of the Bayan Lepas LRT serves the heavier travel demand corridor in the eastern or Bayan Lepas belt – from KOMTAR all the way to the Penang International Airport. The LRT system is most suitable to cater for future increases in travel demand from:

  • Expansion of the Penang International Airport from 6.5 million passengers per annum to potentially 20 million passengers per annum;
  • Expansion of the Bayan Lepas industrial zone; and
  • The developments in the southern coast reclaimed islands.

Click on the detailed map below to find out exactly where the 27 proposed LRT stations will be built.

    @XiaoMei
    They prioritize Bayan Baru, since the population density is higher.

    I’m hoping that they can share their proposed ticketing prices. In that way, the users which is all of us can have a feel whether this can be good for our pocket or not.
    Yes, it is good to have public transportation, but if the ticketing are not priced to make it affordable, it will hard to pick either public transportation or our own vehicles.
    This kind of project is supposed to be rakyat friendly, I just hope that it is not contractor friendly instead…

    Fair can easily change. Just like all the toll.

    They will turn the car park into a shopping mall.

    @LH

    That worries me. If the fare can be changed every 3 years for an example, it can come to a time that the public transportation is beyond the reach of the rakyat.

    That is why, sharing their ticketing price and mechanism is important for us to judge whether this is a good thing to proceed or not.

    From Pesta Station, the LRT should make a turn to Queensbay area with 2 more stations (Pantai Jerejak and Queensbay) and back to Krystal Point/Sungai Nibong roundabout, then proceed to Bukit Jambul. Queensbay Mall, Gold Coast and Penang World City area high-density areas too.

    Unfortunately they are not going to do that. They can’t set a bad precedent by giving in to the adhoc demands of everyone, otherwise the whole thing will be screwed. Too bad for those who bought Penang World City, it’s a pity.

    I hear macallum flat price will up 15% soon due to proposed link.

    April 7th, 2016 at 14:55 | #13

    Public transport has to cater for lower income groups…which is why it makes more sense to go through Bkt Jambul and Relau areas rather than Queensbay area

    April 7th, 2016 at 15:04 | #14

    @Yo

    I won’t be surprised. But from an investor point of view, 15% of the value of those Macallum flats is not that much, unless you buy bulk, which is very difficult.

    As long as they build ample parking space adjacent to the LRT station and improve the feeder bus service, this should not be a problem. Sometimes it’s better to stay slightly further away from LRT station, especially if you prefer peace and serenity over convenience

    @Macha

    Most people who choose to live around a mall are for the convenience. For serenity, this Pinang Kampung City would probably be last on the list, as it is already surrounded by the busiest highway on Penang island. So the fact is, there’s already no serenity there, somemore no LRT. So sad.

    Seriously, i don’t think this alignment will help much for those who work in industrial area. This will help easy those working near jln sultan azlan shah, still have plenty of company stand along to seaside will not benefit from it. How can I drop at FTZ north and south if working on keysight, intel, seagate etc… Better to have a circular line in FTZ but it’s no possible in near future is just my own wishing 😛

    Not penang kampung city… This is Penang Worst City.. The main reason Ah eng buy LRT till bala pai is to support the 3 reclaim human made island at south of penang. That is their purpose.. Forget about penang worst city. Sink already..

    Got LRT station or not will not make or break any property… I will prefer my house closer to work place, schools and shopping mall vs having a LRT station in front..

    I think with LRT station, hopefully car traffic along Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah will reduce, I’m happy to buy a property in Batu Uban.

    A new mega mall by IGB is already on the drawing board for Bayan Baru near the LRT station. This is BIG. Forget about Penang World City, it’s history.

    If LRT plan is materialize, Landed Property in Gelugor,Part of Bukit gambir near USM & Batu Uban will appreciate more due to strategic location

    State gov has to build the LRT station right in front SPICE or to be more specific, right in front of current PDC building which is future BPO Prime Project.

    @Macha

    Totally agree. Compare Damansara and Kelana Jaya.

    Best part is the bus station is within walking distance to Queensbay area.

    Which part of Bukit Gambir? The LRT line does not go through Bukit Gambir or anywhere near it at all

    @Macha

    Area near to Minden Heights.

    Houses at Sunway Tunas will appreciate too. Now its still less than $1m for a double storey terrace.

    On properties near Lrt stations, definitely prices will shoot. In Singapore, all those near mrt are priced at premium compared to those that need to take feeder bus to the mrt station. Of course best if your house dont face the track (hence quiet) but within 5 mins walking distance to the station. Then sure price will be high.

    The price would not rise.. No sink already fortune.. This area all less appreciated due to locaion & poor strategy.. Very bad..

    What mega mall by IGB is that…where is the location please?

  32. kayabun
    April 8th, 2016 at 17:55 | #32

    @shelley

    Yup, you are right. Building LRT alone without putting up toll collection gantry will be meaningless and ineffective in reducing road traffic. So LRT is only part-1, part-2 will be charging car drivers for driving into congested areas during peak hours, during which the people of penang will know the importance of staying within walking distance of LRT stations. I SUPPORT PENANG TRASPORT MASTERPLAN!!!!!! I hope those who said that enthusiastically know what the long term consequence would be..:)

    There are a lot of sacrifices to be made in return for “PROGRESS”. PROGRESS does not come free. The price you have to pay for PROGRESS comes in different forms, in the form of pollution, materialistic obsession as well as a 2.8m bungalow, and before you realize what’s going on, you would have already been swallowed by the evil greed of capitalism.

    How the QB area?
    Airport and QB shopping center must link

    April 9th, 2016 at 21:47 | #36

    Just a sharing : If “Pesta Station” is an interchange, and split another line to QB mall would be great.

  37. QB
    April 10th, 2016 at 09:56 | #37

    Queensbay mall can charter shuttle bus to Pesta station. Sure alot people will use.

    Property price will appreciate but mostly paper gain….little buyer can afford now…

    April 10th, 2016 at 21:53 | #39

    @QB
    Agreed of your suggestion; but if light rail train connected to QB would be better solution, mall & hotel is there. Good for Tourist all the way from Airport =)

    At the station SkyCab, why not go through Jalan Teh Ewe Lim and all the way to Jalan Mesjid Negeri and bild 2 station there… than continue to Gelugor?

    Build more Highway and forget about LRT and other public transport .. GOODBYE LRT . HA! HA! HA! I support PIL ….

    GEORGE TOWN: Penang’s plans to build a light rail transit (LRT) line may not be the best bet to improve public transport in the state, Transport Minister Anthony Loke Siew Fook said.

    He said while the federal government remains fully committed to helping Penang with public transport, a study conducted by the ministry showed LRT might not be feasible at the moment.

    However, he did not state the other options except in broad terms of “trams and other modes”.

    @Highway man
    You’re outdated already lah, the latest piece of news already stated that Transport Ministry and SPAD already agree with Penang government’s proposal to build LRT
