Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The MRT Line 1 or Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line is a proposed new line under the Selangor and Kuala Lumpur rail transit system. Announced in 2006, the line was initially planned as a Light Rail Transit at 43 km in length, linking the densely populated areas of Damansara in the northwest and Cheras in the southeast, through the central business district of Kuala Lumpur city. However, the government is currently considering the possibility of extending the alignment at both ends of the line to Sungai Buloh and Kajang, respectively, and a new spur line from Damansara Utama to Kelana Jaya, adding 16 km to the line making a total 59 km. In addition, the system is now a proposed Mass Rapid Transit system instead, providing the much needed larger capacity trains for the densely populated areas that the line will traverse. Current timeline projection indicates project completion in 2016 as opposed to the original LRT plan which were supposed to be completed on 2014. As with the existing Kelana Jaya Line and Ampang Line, the new line will be owned by Syarikat Prasarana Negara and operated by RapidKL.show more
