SHAH ALAM, Oct 20, 2015:

Prasarana Malaysia Bhd has agreed to change the route of the Light Rail Transit 3 (LRT3) from Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya to Johan Setia, Klang.

Selangor Investment, Industrial, Commerce and Transport Committee chairman Datuk Teng Chang Khim said the LRT3 route – which was originally planned to cut through the housing area of Taman Muhibah, Klang – would be changed to Pasar Besar Klang at Jalan Meru.

“The LRT3 will no longer run through the housing estate, the alignment changes will not involve any acquisition of property.

“The station which was initially planned to be built next to SMK Tinggi Klang will also be changed next to the market.”

Residents of Taman Muhibah had been objecting the proposed line which would run through their housing area and some houses would be acquired.

Based on the proposed alignment, 12 houses and eight shoplots will have to make way.

Work on the 36km route is expected to be completed by Aug 31, 2020.
