Versi ramah pencetakSend by emailPDF version

The Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit Project involves the construction of a railway network which will form the backbone of the Klang Valley’s public transport system. The project is a crucial component of the Greater Klang Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley National Key Economic Area (Greater KL/KV NKEA) and will be the largest infrastructure project in the country. It will significantly improve the coverage of rail-based public transport in the Klang Valley and enable 50% of all trips in the Klang Valley to be done on public transport by 2020, up from the current 17%.

The Government approved the Klang Valley MRT Project on 17 December 2010. The first line of the network will run from Sungai Buloh in the northwest of Kuala Lumpur, to Kajang in the southeast of the Federal capital. The line is about 60km and will have around 35 stations. The line will serve a population of about 1.2 million people living in areas such as Sungai Buloh, Kota Damansara, Bandar Utama, Damansara Utama, Pusat Bandar Damansara, Taman Maluri, Cheras, Taman Bukit Ria, Taman Bukit Mewah, Taman Suntex, Bandar Hussein Onn and Kajang as well as the city centre of Kuala Lumpur. The expected ridership of the line is 442,000 passenger per day. Construction of the line is expected to begin in July 2011.

Other MRT lines of the Klang Valley MRT Project are currently being identified as part of the Klang Valley Urban Rail Development Plan. The Plan is a component of the Klang Valley Land Public Transport Masterplan being commissioned by the Suruhanjaya Pengangkutan Awam Darat (SPAD).

The Klang Valley MRT Project is fully funded by the Government and will be implemented and owned by Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd. SPAD is the supervising agency for the project.
