Station Concepts[32][edit]

The proposed design for the elevated stations is based on the “Serambi” concept. This concept is focused on inspiring interaction/ communication at a foyer/ entrance space of a house, hall,.i.e. entrance space at a “rumah kampung” or “rumah panjang”. The design opted is a simple. timeless design: which is derived from various design concepts, including that of the Japanese “Zen” concept. Other aspects include open space, natural lighting & ventilation, and natural visual effects via play of lighting & shadows.

Compared to the Sungai Buloh-Kajang (SBK) Line elevated station design, the columns have been pushed to the sides of the station, giving the station an open and airy feel.

Whereas for underground stations, each of them will carry its own individual theme. The proposed designs range from preserving the rustic, reflecting tidal rhythm, promotiong well-being, vibrancy, pulse of life, discovering culture, molding forms, inspired by nature to streamlined flow.

Rolling stock[edit]

The rolling stock will be provided by HAP Consortium which consists of Hyundai Rotem, Apex Communications and POSCO Engineering. The trains are assumed to be driverless with a capacity of 1,200 passengers in a 4-car trainsets formation.[33]

Car length (over coupler): 18.6 m to 20.1 m

Number of passenger doors per car side / door width: 4 / 1400 mm

Traction power supply: 750 VDC, 3rd rail

Exact rolling stock details have not yet been released.

The 4-car trainsets will be maintained at 2 purpose built facilities, Sungai Buloh and Serdang depots, located nearby Kwasa Damansara and the proposed Taman Universiti stations respectively.[34]
