PETALING JAYA: The final draft of the National Land Transport Master
Plan, aimed at solving Malaysia’s transport woes, is out and up for
public scrutiny and feedback.
It covers six areas categorised under historical perspectives,
opportunities and realities, objectives and policies, institutional
framework, regional perspectives and land freight.
The 107-page document is available on the Land Public Transport Commission’s (SPAD) website: http://www.spad.gov.my/sites/default/files/national-land-public-transport-master-plan-final-draft.pdf.
SPAD had worked on the document over the past year, having consulted
various stakeholders (including
government agencies) before coming up
with a final version.
It is a first of its kind in Malaysia, as government ministries and
agencies had to rely on ad hoc policies by traffic and transport
planners since Independence.
Last year, a SPAD spokesperson told FMT that the master plan would have a 20-year lifeline.
Members of the publics can e-mail their feedback to SPAD at: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org,email@example.com.
Drafts of the Greater Klang Valley/Kuala Lumpur Masterplan can already be viewed on the same website.
