KUCHING: The government is considering developing a water bus service on Sarawak River to ease traffic congestion in the city.

Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud said the system was the only alternative that the government could think of for now to tackle the city’s traffic jams.

He said the government had explored how the Sarawak River could be used for public transportation similar to other networks deployed in some parts of the world like Brisbane.

“This water bus system may be the early solution to relieve road congestion in some parts of the city, especially along the river,” he said during a ‘Sejiwa Senada’ programme at the Kuching City South Council (MBKS) ground here yesterday.

A water bus system requires passenger boats whose service may be scheduled with multiple stops, operating just like regular buses.

Taib said opportunities for interchange with other modes of transport would also be explored to ensure that the water bus service could integrate with existing transport networks.

However, Taib said the water bus system might only be able to ease traffic jams in the city for up to 10 years.

He said as the city’s population increased, the government must consider developing a rapid transit system to connect the city to other places.

He said at the moment there was simply not enough demand for what could be the biggest and most expensive project.

He said the population of the city at 300,000 currently was too small to justify the project’s enormous cost.

“But I foresee people will keep coming from across the state and Kuching will grow and change in ways that will make it a very different place in the coming decades.

“This will also mean that we have to build roads with more lanes to handle the population growth. And there is no room to do this.

“The rapid transit system may not be needed so soon. However, it may be absolutely crucial to have such a system probably in 10 or 15 years from now,” he said.

*****Population in kuching 300,000 as he said? and the rapid transit that he said within 10 to 15 yrs......wow...his project always takedecades and never yield a sh...T

If it was MRT then 15 years sound reasonable, but BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) should be feasible within 3 to 5 years.
