Abdullah Hukum station is an integrated metro station in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, serving both the Kelana Jaya Line and the Port Klang Line. The station was first opened on September 1, 1998, as part of the line's first segment encompassing 10 elevated stations between Kelana Jaya station and Pasar Seni station (excluding the KL Sentral station opened later), and the line's maintenance depot in Subang Valley (Malay: Lembah Subang).

Abdullah Hukum - Main Entrance

Location[edit]

The station is named after the adjacent Kampung Haji Abdullah Hukum, a former village located between the station and the Klang River. In addition to serving the southeastern village, the station is also accessible from the southwestern tip of Taman Bukit Pantai from the station's northwest. A Malayan Railway (KTM) line leading to Port Klang station runs parallel alongside the station and connected Kelana Jaya Line tracks.

Similar to the adjoining Bangsar station, Abdullah Hukum station is erected along Jalan Bangsar, further south, but is situated just over the Pantai Baharu exit of the New Pantai Expressway.

KTM Komuter station[edit]

As part of the KL Eco City development plan, a new KTM Komuter station was to be built between KL Sentral and Angkasapuri, and to be integrated with the KJ Line station. Construction of the new station began in 2014, and was initially slated to be named Eco City station.

The station was opened on 28 October 2018, after much delays, however the name Eco City was dropped; the existing station name Abdullah Hukum was used for both lines.[1]

Connectivity to Mid Valley City and the Seremban Line[edit]

Despite its relatively close proximity to the Mid Valley City mixed development just 250 metres east, no proper connection is provided between Abdullah Hukum station and Mid Valley City. The current route requires patrons to walk northwards to a footbridge crossing the KTM tracks, then via the KL Eco City complex, before crossing the Klang River via a road bridge. The station is currently the closest rapid transit station to Mid Valley City, but a KTM Komuter regional rail station is located far closer to the area.

Connection to the Mid Valley KTM station will be possible once the pedestrian bridge linking the KL Eco City project and Mid Valley City is complete, scheduled to be in around February or March 2019.

Design[edit]

The Abdullah Hukum station is fashioned to be elevated above an access roadway, similar to the Bangsar station.

The station's layout is somewhat consistent with other elevated Kelana Jaya Line stations, and is alike the Bangsar station. The station has three levels: The access points at street level, and the ticket area and adjoining platforms on two elevated levels. All levels are linked via stairways, escalators and elevators designated for disabled passengers.

Each of the station's two side platforms is used by trains travelling at either direction of the line, and is entirely sheltered by roofs.
