KUALA LUMPUR 23 Mac – Kerajaan tidak akan menarik balik Rang Undang-Undang Perbadanan Kampung Baru 2010 yang akan dibentangkan di Dewan Rakyat pada Jun ini meskipun terdapat desakan untuk berbuat demikian.

Menteri Wilayah Persekutuan dan Kesejahteraan Bandar, Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin berkata, ini kerana rang undang-undang tersebut mewakili kehendak penduduk dan waris Kampung Baru setelah kerajaan mengambil kira pandangan mereka secara keseluruhan.

Beliau berkata, cuma di peringkat ini kerajaan sedang memperhalusi beberapa klausa yang terdapat di dalam draf rang undang-undang berkenaan.

“Kita tidak akan menarik balik rang undang-undang ini dan kita juga telah mengadakan perjumpaan berkali-kali dengan wakil pemilik dan pewaris tanah di Kampung Baru, pertubuhan bukan kerajaan (NGO) dan begitu juga dengan semua ketua kampung.

“Semua sepakat menyokong penuh penubuhan rang undang-undang ini dengan beberapa klausa diperhalusi, sebab itu kita tangguh pembentangannya sehingga Jun,” katanya ketika menggulung perbahasan titah ucapan Yang di-Pertuan Agong di Dewan Rakyat hari ini.

Rang Undang-Undang Perbadanan Kampung Baru 2010 dikemukakan untuk bacaan pertama di Dewan Rakyat pada 14 Disember 2010 bertujuan menubuhkan satu perbadanan yang bertanggungjawab merancang dan mengawal selia pembangunan Kampung Baru.

Bagaimanapun rang undang- undang itu yang dijadual dikemukakan untuk bacaan kali kedua dan dibahaskan pada persidangan kali ini ditangguhkan sehingga Jun bagi membolehkan beberapa klausa di dalam rang undang-undang itu diperhalusi.

Raja Nong Chik dalam penggulungannya turut menolak dakwaan Dr. Lo’Lo’ Mohamad Ghazali (Pas- Titiwangsa) bahawa beliau mungkir janji apabila membentangkan rang undang-undang itu di Dewan Rakyat sebelum bertemu dengan pihak berkepentingan di Kampung Baru.

Dalam pada itu, Raja Nong Chik berkata, wakil kementerian akan turun ke setiap kampung bagi menjelaskan mengenai rang undang-undang itu supaya tidak timbul sebarang kekeliruan.

Sementara itu, Raja Nong Chik berkata, kementerian bersedia menimbang cadangan supaya nama beberapa jalan di ibu negara ditukar dengan nama tokoh seperti Jeneral Tun Ibrahim Ismail dan Leftenan Adnan Saidi.

Katanya, selain nama jalan seperti yang dicadangkan Ibrahim Ali (Bebas-Pasir Mas), masih terdapat nama jalan dalam senarai menunggu untuk digunakan bagi jalan baru, antaranya nama Allahyarham Tun Hussein Onn atau Jalan Tun Hussein Onn dan Allahyarham Tun Ghaffar Baba atau Jalan Tun Ghaffar Baba.

Bagaimanapun beliau berkata, penukaran nama sesuatu jalan yang sudah bernama di Kuala Lumpur kepada nama baru pada kelazimannya menerima bantahan.

“Ini disebabkan pemilik premis sudah lama menggunakan alamat premisnya berpandukan pada nama jalan berkaitan dan akan menimbulkan kesulitan seperti pertukaran Mykad, alamat premis, surat-menyurat, bil utiliti dan sebagainya.

“Kelulusan penamaan atau pertukaran nama jalan di Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur termasuk di Putrajaya dan Labuan adalah di bawah Jawatankuasa Negeri Nama Geografi Wilayah Persekutuan,” katanya.

Spektra tingkatkan kualiti Nadi Putra

PUTRAJAYA 11 Mac – Sistem Pengurusan dan Kawalan Transit Awam Putrajaya (Spektra) yang mula diperkenalkan di sini dijangka mampu meningkatkan kualiti perkhidmatan bas Nadi Putra dan tempat letak kereta awam.

Menteri Wilayah Persekutuan dan Kesejahteraan Bandar, Datuk Seri Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin berkata, Spektra merangkumi empat komponen utama iaitu sistem pengurusan bas, maklumat bas, tiket elektronik dan tempat letak kereta automatik.

Beliau menjelaskan, sistem pengurusan bas melibatkan pemasangan on board unit (OBU) di atas bas yang memiliki ciri-ciri sistem penentu kedudukan global (GPS) dan sistem komunikasi radio paket (GPRS) yang akan menghantar data mengenai identiti bas, pemandu, laluan operasi dan bilangan penumpang kepada Sistem Komputer Berpusat Putrajaya (PutraNet).

“Dengan terlaksananya Spektra ini, Perbadanan Putrajaya mampu menyediakan perkhidmatan pengangkutan awam dan tempat letak kereta awam yang terbaik dan lebih efektif kepada masyarakat.

“Selepas ini tiada lagi alasan pengguna untuk tidak menggunakan perkhidmatan bas kerana semua kemudahan telah disediakan dengan sempurna di Putrajaya,” katanya kepada pemberita selepas melancarkan Spektra, di sini hari ini.

Turut hadir Presiden Perbadanan Putrajaya (PPj), Tan Sri Samsudin Osman dan Pengarah Perkhidmatan Bandar PPj, Datuk Abd. Ghani Ahmad.

Raja Nong Chik berkata, sistem maklumat bas akan berperanan sebagai pusat kawalan yang menyalurkan maklumat jangka masa ketibaan pada skrin yang dipasang di 16 buah perhentian bas terpilih bagi membolehkan pengguna mengetahui jadual perjalanan bas.

“Sistem tiket elektronik pula akan bertindak menguruskan kutipan tambang bas secara tunai dan penggunaan pas bulanan. Kesemua transaksi akan dihantar terus kepada sistem komputer di depot bas sebelum disatukan ke dalam PutraNet.

“Sistem tempat letak kereta automatik pula akan beroperasi di pusat Park and Ride (P&R) bagi mengendalikan bayaran secara tunai dan penggunaan pas bulanan secara harian dan bermalam pada kadar bayaran yang ditetapkan,” katanya.

Dalam pada itu, Raja Nong Chik memberitahu, pelaksanaan Spektra menelan belanja RM17 juta dengan 115 buah bas telah dilengkapi sistem tersebut.

Sementara itu, katanya, kementeriannya akan menilai tahap keberkesanan Spektra Putrajaya sebelum diperluaskan ke ibu negara.

“Jika ia berkesan dan mampu menarik lebih ramai orang menggunakan perkhidmatan bas, kami akan menggunakan aplikasi yang sama di ibu negara,” katanya.

Backlane to act as bypass to ease congestion

A BACKLANE near Wisma Harapan will be converted to a bypass to cater for a two-way traffic along Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad, Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur when it reverts to its original two-way street come April 1.

At present, Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad is a one-way flow. However, from the Jalan Rozario junction to Jalan Tun Sambanthan 4, it will be a two-way flow.

The backlane will lead to Jalan Thambipillay.

The dispersal system will be a loop to allow easier traffic circulation along Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad, Jalan Thambipillay and Jalan Tun Sambanthan.

The decision was made by Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin to help ease traffic coming from main road (Jalan Tun Sambanthan) when Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad reverts to two-way.

“Although the consultant said it was better to have Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad as a one-way street, we made it two-way at the request of the people there.

“We have even asked Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd if they could re-route the buses but it will be a loss. Based on a survey, residents prefer the buses to move along Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad,” he said.

When asked if the authorities would be able to control the main road traffic coming into the two-way area, Raja Nong Chik said it was not feasible to control who comes in.

Brickfields residents were happy with the decision to revert Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad to a two-way street but they had expressed concern that by allowing main road traffic to come into Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad would add to the congestion.

They did not want main road traffic to flow into Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad as traffic is high along the road and people have trouble crossing the road.

“We will only be able to see the result of the two-way system after one to two months. We have also converted the backlane to accommodate the traffic.

“As for the issue on congestion caused by illegal parking, the police and Kuala Lumpur City Hall will be issuing summonses to drivers who double-parked.

“We are now accommodating double parking as we understand the parking area is not ready. Once the system is ready, the area will be designated as a no parking zone,” he said.

Raja Nong Chik was speaking to reporters after presenting 38 Little India traders with licence offer letters that were part of the phase one Permanent Hawker Centre relocation programme.

He said the phase two was well on its way and only some technical issues needed to be resolved.

“I think everyone needs to look at the big picture of Little India instead on focusing on the micro issues because during construction period, there are bound to be problems.

“We are fine-tuning matters pertaining to hawker, traffic and overhead bridge and these can be discussed,” he said.

Puduraya Bus Terminal Opens On April 16

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 18 (Bernama) — The scheduled re-opening of the Puduraya bus terminal on March 1 has to be postponed to April 16 as upgrading works at the premises have yet to complete.

As such, the temporary bus terminal at Bukit Jalil will continue to be operational for the time being, Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin said Friday.

He said the decision was made following a discussion with UDA Holdings Berhad, which is the developer of the Puduraya Terminal, and the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) Friday.

“Facilities at this terminal have to be further improved. I am not satisfied because the ceiling at some places is very low, while the escalator, lift and others have yet to be tested and commissioned,” he told reporters after visiting the Puduraya Terminal here.

He was accompanied by the ministry’s Deputy Secretary-General (Planning and Development) Datuk Bakaruddin Othman, its Deputy Secretary-General (Urban Wellbeing and Management) Datuk Adnan Md Ikhsan and Uda Holdings Berhad managing director Datuk Jaafar Abu Hassan.

Upgrading works at the Puduraya Terminal began in June 2009 at a cost of RM52 million.

Meanwhile, Jaafar said former traders at Puduraya who had moved to Bukit Jalil would be given priority in the allotment of business stalls at the Puduraya Terminal.

“For those who did not move to Bukit Jalil, we will compensate them for their loses in income by exempting them from paying rental for between six and seven months,” he said.

On the Integrated Transportation Terminal-Bandar Tasik Selatan (TBS-BTS) which will be opened on March 1, SPAD general manager and head of state operations and terminal licensing, Fuad Ahmad, said SPAD would cooperate with the Road Transport Department to overcome problems of ticket touts.
