Printer-friendly versionSend by emailPDF version

Implemented by Keratapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB), the KVDT project will be carried out in incremental stages beginning in 2016, and is expected to be completed by 2019. This project will involve the rehabilitation of 42 kilometres of tracks between Rawang and Salak Selatan and Sentul and Simpang Batu and will include the enhancement of 16 stations along these routes as well as the upgrading of the existing signalling and electrification system. The upgrades are part of a long-term project known as the Klang Valley Double Track infrastructure and systems upgrading, which will see work being carried out on the network’s double-tracking, signalling and communications systems. This will include the changing of track components and carrying out track rehabilitation as well as upgrading the train detection system and circuit breakers. Upon completion of the KVDT project, new Komuter services are set to be introduced by KTMB and more environmentally-friendly Electric Train Service (ETS) trains will be put into operation. The project will be implemented upon approval from SPAD which will look into areas such as safety, minimum service disruption for commuters.
