PIARC International Seminar

Arrow Technical Visits
  An enlightening schedule of technical visits has been arranged to showcase Malaysia's efforts to meet the accelerating demand for an efficient road and transportation infrastructure. Delegates are requested to select one (1) visit of their choice. Due to space constraints at the venues, registration will be on first come, first served basis.

The Rawang Bypass which was opened to traffic in November 2017, involves a new road alignment to bypass the busy Rawang town. The project cuts through a hilly and environmentally-sensitive forested heritage park which has been a traditional location for family outings, nature lovers and eco-tourists. Major mitigation initiatives were considered in its engineering design, including the construction of a viaduct and localised cutting of the slopes. Movement of wildlife is made possible below the entire stretch of the viaduct. A careful construction methodology was used with the view to mitigate disturbance to the existing environment and ecosystem during construction. It would be interesting to follow the approaches adopted by the Public Work Department in undertaking the project with minimal environmental impact and the asset management scheme utilised to maintain this important asset.   The Duta-Ulu Klang Expressway 2 (DUKE 2) is a prominent part of the Kuala Lumpur Road Master Plan acting as a key traffic dispersal and extension to the existing DUKE. It is designed to be a dual-three lane tolled carriageway which will connect the east and west of Kuala Lumpur via a seven-kilometre link from Sri Damansara and a nine-kilometre link from Jalan Tun Razak. The construction works for DUKE 2 commenced in 2014 and were completed by end of 2017. The visit will focus on how the concessionaire manages and sustains tolled expressways over the asset life cycle in a cost effective manner.

The 51-kilometre MRT Sungai Buloh to Kajang Line (MRT Line 1) was completed in 2017. It is the first of the three planned Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit lines to be commissioned.

The line has a total of 31 stations consisting of 7 underground stations and 24 elevated stations. MRT Line 1 spans between Sungai Buloh and Kajang towns. The alignment starts from Sungai Buloh which is located at the north-west of Kuala Lumpur, runs through the city centre of Kuala Lumpur, and ends in Kajang, a fast developing town centre located at the south-east of Kuala Lumpur. There are two depots which are located in Sungai Buloh and Kajang. The scope of asset management for such a mega project is complex, challenging and involves asset maintenance and asset condition audits on the rolling stock, systems and all other assets.
  The Maju Expressway (MEX) with a total length of 26km connects the Kuala Lumpur central business district with the Putrajaya administrative centre and onwards to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). The expressway is a 3-lane dual carriageway which provides the fastest and shortest connection between these key points and serves as the Gateway to the Nation. MEX was completed in 2007. The expressway is currently being extended further to KLIA and is expected to be completed in 2019. MEX is a fully access controlled expressway with major interchanges providing connectivity with other major highways and development corridors in the Greater Klang Valley. Having managed this major expressway for over 10 years, the concessionaire has in depth experience to share in terms of asset management for the toll plaza, pavement, slopes, bridge and administrative and supervision buildings.



The Traffic Monitoring Centre (TMC) of PLUS was established in 2008 at Subang and operates round the clock to ensure smooth traffic movement as well as to improve road safety aspects of approximately 60% of all tolled highways in Peninsular Malaysia.

The TMC is equipped with the Intelligent Transportation System and provides real time traffic information to highway users via variable message signboards, portal web, closed circuit TV, short messaging system and multimedia messaging systems.

TMC also liaises with relevant authorities and provides tow truck services for faster incident/breakdown clearance on the highways.
