Alor Setar railway station relocation proposal

In 2001, the government proposed to move Alor Setar railway station to a place in Anak Bukit. This proposal however has sparked controversy among residents because they do not want the original railway station building to be demolished.

LANDASAN: Build a new one at Anak Bukit and change the function of the current Alor Setar terminal. Use it as something else instead of demolishing it. Maybe KTMB can apply the Kuala Lumpur Station – KL Sentral Station concept in Alor Setar, where the old station is still being used to to its proximity with the heart of the city (Alor Setar).
