The Klang Valley MRT Project

THE Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit (KVMRT) project involves the construction of a rail-based public transport network which, together with the existing light rail transit (LRT), monorail, KTM Komuter, KLIA Ekspres and KLIA Transit systems, form the backbone of the Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley region.

The project was approved by the Government in December 2010. The first MRT line to be implemented was the 51km Sungai Buloh-Kajang line. Construction of the line was officially launched on 8 July 2011 by the Prime Minister of Malaysia, YAB Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Bin Tun Abdul Razak.

The MRT project was initially proposed to the Government by a private-sector consortium in early 2010. The proposal was for the construction of three MRT lines.

The Government conducted a study on the proposal and approved the implementation of the Sungai Buloh-Kajang line first. The Government decided to implement the other two lines after further studies are done on the proposed alignment in conjunction with the Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley Land Public Transport Masterplan being drawn up by the Suruhanjaya Pengangkutan Awam Darat.

The Klang Valley MRT project was also made 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 being implemented by the The Performance Management and Delivery Unit (Pemandu) of the Prime Minister’s Department.

With the Klang Valley MRT, the target having 50% of all journeys in the Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley region to be on public transport can be achieved.





The MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line


THE first line of the Klang Valley MRT Project to be implemented is the 51km MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line.

The line begins from Sungai Buloh, located to the north-west of Kuala Lumpur, and runs through the city centre of Malaysia’s capital city before ending in Kajang, a fast developing town to the south-east of the city.

The line will run underground for a distance of 9.5km beneath the centre of Kuala Lumpur while the rest of the alignment is elevated. The line will have 31 stations of which seven will be underground.

Phase One of the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line from Sungai Buloh to Semantan began operations on 16 December 2016. The Phase Two, from Semantan Station to Kajang Station started its operations on 17 July 2017, allowing trains to run the entire alignment.

Each train set serving the line will have four cars, allowing a total capacity of 1,200 passengers. The daily ridership is estimated to be about 400,000 passengers. Trains will run at a frequency of 3.5 minutes.
