Two major light rail transport (LRT) projects are scheduled for operation this year as part of the Malaysian Government's ongoing commitment to urban LRT and mass rapid transit (MRT) infrastructure upgrades.
The Ampang LRT line extension of Sri Petaling-Putra Heights passing through Kinrara Puchong in the Klang Valley in Kuala Lumpur is scheduled to open at the end of March.
The extended Ampang Line will bring in an additional 195,000 passengers in daily ridership, including 40,000 from the newly-opened stations. In addition, the 17.4 km Kelana Jaya-Putra Heights line will start operations on 30 June.
The Sri Petaling-Kinrara route has been operating since last October with its four new stations at Awan Besar, Muhibbah, Alam Sutera and Kinrara BK5 commanding an average daily ridership of 195,000 passengers.
