What is KUTS ?

As Sarawak aspires to become a developed and high-income State by 2030, a reliable transport system is vital in mobilising greater productivity and economic growth.

Sarawak Metro is implementing the Kuching Urban Transportation System (KUTS) project to minimise traffic congestion on the city’s roads while spurring productivity and economic growth.

Automated Rapid Transit (ART)

At the heart of KUTS is the Automated Rapid Transit (ART) which will be the backbone of the public transport system transformation.

 OCC 

Operation Control Centre (OCC)

  • The Operation Control Centre (OCC) can be considered as the heart of KUTS.

  • The OCC is manned by traffic controllers, who monitor the hydrogen vehicles’ movements and also, via CCTV, the situation on board all our hydrogen vehicles and stations.

  • The OCC for KUTS will be located in the Administration Building of our Rembus depot.

  • It will provide integrated controls, as well as monitor and deal with any emergency situation – on the main line and in our depots – during our operation.

  • Functions and capabilities:

  • Monitor and control the hydrogen vehicle service

  • Supervise and control the electrical power supply and distribution systems

  • Monitor and control the E&M equipment, system-wide

  • Monitor and control fire safety

  • Perform depot operations and maintenance activities

  • Communicate and monitor passengers’ movement

  • Coordinate with other modes of transport

  • Perform operation management

  • Perform incident management

  • Automatic launching and reception of hydrogen vehicles from / to depots

  • Systems and equipment fault reporting

  • Internet facility for communication with social media (Twitter, WhatsApp etc.)

  • Event log system

  • Fire suppression system

  • Flood monitoring system

  • Cross wind monitoring, anemometer wind speed sensor

Our Depots

  • Our depots for KUTS will provide heavy and light maintenance for our fleet of hydrogen vehicles, as well as a place to park all our hydrogen vehicles when they’re not in operation.

  • For the Samarahan Line (Blue Line), the proposed location of our depot is at Rembus while for the Serian Line (Red Line), the proposed location is at 12th Mile Kuching-Serian Road.

  • The depots will integrate the various systems including the virtual tracks to and from the mainlines, signalling equipment, telecommunications equipment, automatic fare collection equipment, hydrogen vehicles’ operations, mechanical, electrical, fire engineering, and security, among others.
