Transport master plan up for scrutiny

 Patrick Lee | October 5, 2012 | Free Malaysia Today

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:

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:,

Drafts of the Greater Klang Valley/Kuala Lumpur Masterplan can already be viewed on the same website.
