The MRT Line 1 begins from Sungai Buloh and runs through the city centre of Kuala Lumpur before ending in Kajang, spanning 51 km with a total of 31 stations along its route. It will feature both elevated and underground stations and is expected to run at a frequency of 3.5 minutes.
As the supervising agency for the MRT project, SPAD is responsible in ensuring that the outlined construction targets are met. Phase One of the MRT Line 1 from Sungai Buloh to Semantan will be open to commuters by the end of 2016, while Phase Two, from Semantan to Kajang will be in operation by July 2017.
The Government has allocated RM28 billion for the implementation of the MRT Line 2 for the Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya link. The MRT Line 2 will serve a corridor with a population of around 2 million stretching from Sungai Buloh via Central Business District of Kuala Lumpur to Bandar Malaysia, Kuchai Lama and Serdang before ending at Putrajaya. The 52.2km line will include a 13.5km underground section between Jalan Ipoh and Kuchai Lama and 38.7km of viaduct. There will be 37 stations, 26 of which will be elevated with 11 underground stations. The stations will include Sri Damansara, Kepong, Kampung Batu, Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah, Jalan Tun Razak, KLCC, Tun Razak Exchange, Kuchai Lama, Seri Kembangan and Cyberjaya.
