The completion of these improvements are expected to be done from 2025 to 2027.
Listen up MRT and LRT users, there’s some good news coming your way!
Yesterday, Transport Minister Anthony Loke announced that Klang Valley commuters can expect the train frequency on the Kajang MRT line to improve from the current 6-minute interval to a 4-minute interval by August this year.
This enhancement is attributed to the progress of the ongoing wheel replacement program.
According to reports by The Vibes, in a Dewan Rakyat seating, Loke added that measures are being taken to address the frequent issues faced by commuters on the Ampang LRT and Kelana Jaya LRT routes.
In response to a question from Fong Kui Lun (Bukit Bintang-PH), Loke mentioned that a comprehensive overhaul of all train component systems is being carried out on the Ampang LRT route.
This overhaul, which began in October last year, involves all 50 trains and is expected to be completed by December 2027.
Additionally, regarding the Kelana Jaya LRT route, Loke stated that 19 new sets of 4-car trains will be procured.
This, he said, will be done in stages starting from August this year until the end of the following year.
The purchase process will be expedited in order to replace the obsolete 2-car trains currently in service.
This will increase the frequency of trains starting in September 2023. With more frequent services, it will reduce congestion, especially during peak hours as well as reduce damage during operating hours. For the monorail line, one train is being rehabilitated while two new trains will be completed in March 2025. This will allow a train frequency of every 5 minutes during peak hours.Transport Minister Anthony Loke
