If you often find yourself frustrated at the inaccessibility of our country’s public train system, you’re not the only one.
A viral Tweet by @Twt_Cyberjaya on the upcoming MRT Cyberjaya City Centre has netizens foaming at the mouth.
According to the tweet, the MRT station which comes under the MRT Putrajaya Phase 2 project is set to be fully operational to the public by March 16 (unofficial) this year.
Netizens took to Twitter to share their disappointment with the structure of the station which according to them “promotes inaccessibility” for on-foot users.
Twitter user @ErnestOnPT said:
This is just as ‘City Centre’ as it gets for Cyberjaya, as the station itself is literally the embodiment of the township. There is no central core or a downtown where one can easily walk around – all you see is buildings distanced far apart and cars are a necessity to get around.@ErnestOnPT on Twitter
Agreeing to his point, Twitter user @faisalion29 said this just meant that public transport users would still require a car to move around the area to access the station, which in return, defeats the purpose.
Another unsatisfied Twitter user @timcmi lamented that his dream of the Klang Valley becoming a walkable city felt more far-fetched now.
Meanwhile Twitter user @haqeemm pointed out that the replies under the viral post spoke for the majority of public transport users.
What’s the point of building LRT stations if it isn’t even accessible by foot? This is literally useless.@haqeemm on Twitter
Several others also voiced out their dismay towards the situation with some calling out the irony behind the station’s name.
