Elevated Station Concepts [42][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.

Underground Station Concepts [42][edit]

Each of the underground stations will carry its own individual theme, similar to that of the Sungai Buloh-Kajang line stations. The proposed designs range from preserving the rustic, reflecting tidal rhythm, promoting well-being, vibrancy, pulse of life, discovering culture, molding forms, inspired by nature to streamlined flow.


Following the initial proposal during the public display period, 37 stations have been approved along 52.2 km of track.[43]

The stations listed below are as displayed on the government website for the draft environmental impact assessment.[44] All the station names are interim and subject to change.

28 (23 elevated + 1 half-sunken + 4 underground) out of 35 stations (excluding the ones in MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line) are expected to have feeder bus services.
