A delegation of 25 personnel from PLANMalaysia made a technical visit to Mass Rapid Transit Corporation Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp) headquarters and the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang (SBK) and Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya (SSP) lines stations on 18 July 2019.
PLANMalaysia Deputy Director, Dr. Dzul Khaimi Hailani led the visit in conjunction with a study by PLANMalaysia on “Integrated Land Use Master Plan Study for MRT SSP Line”. The outcome of the study is to serve as a guide to Local Authorities on the suitable land use in implementing possible Transit Oriented Development along MRT SSP Line alignment.
The visit began with a briefing on the MRT Lines as an “Economic Corridor and Rail Network Connectivity” by MRT Corp General Manager of Property Encik Mohd Nasri Mohamad Nor. The delegates then took the MRT train to view the MRT Kwasa Damansara and Sungai Buloh stations. They continued the visit by going to the sites of MRT SSP Line stations; Kepong Baru and Hospital Kuala Lumpur. The visit to these stations was primarily to understand the site context and its surrounding as well as potential for pedestrian and bicycle lane connectivity.
