THE KLANG VALLEY MRT PROJECT
THE Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit (KVMRT) Project involves the construction of a rail-based public transport network comprising three lines.
The MRT, together with the existing urban rail network, will form the backbone of the public transport system in the Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley region.
The Project is an Entry Point Project of the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) under the Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley National Key Economic Area (NKEA). The ETP is implemented by the Performance Management and Delivery Unit (PEMANDU) of the Prime Minister’s Department.
The first MRT line to be implemented is the 51km Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line (SBK Line). Construction of the line began on 8 July 2011.
THE SUNGAI BULOH-SERDANG-PUTRAJAYA LINE (SSP LINE)
THE MRT SSP Line will be the second MRT line to be developed.
The line will serve a corridor with a population of around 2 million people stretching from Sungai Buloh to Putrajaya and will include Sri Damansara, Kepong, Batu, Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah, Jalan Tun Razak, KLCC, Tun Razak Exchange, Kuchai Lama, Seri Kembangan and Cyberjaya.
The proposed alignment is 52.2km of which 13.5km is underground. A total of 36 stations, 11 of them underground, will be built.
At commencement of full service in the second quarter of 2022, the SSP Line is expected to have a ridership of 529,000 passengers per day. This is expected to further improve the chronic traffic congestion currently faced by Kuala Lumpur.
