Sentul LRT station is an above ground Light Rapid Station operated by Rapid Rail in Sentul, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is served by Sri Petaling Line. This station is situated next to two secondary schools, Sentul Methodist Boys School and Wesleys Methodist School, three primary schools, and around are medium density low cost housing developments. Although, Sentul station has a similar name as the Sentul Komuter station, it is of note that these two stations are quite far apart from each other (at approximately 800 metres in walking distance). Sentul LRT station was opened to public in 1998 as part of the final phase of development.

History[edit]

The station previously served by Ampang Line and Sri Petaling Line. Opened in 1998 as part of the line's second phase of development, the station was intended to connect Sentul Timur to other parts of the city and surrounding areas. Under Phase 2, a 15 km track with 11 stations was built to serve the northern and southern areas of Kuala Lumpur to cater for the Commonwealth Village and National Sports Complex in Bukit Jalil, during the KL Commonwealth Games in 1998.

Station layout[edit]

The station is a typical elevated Ampang Line station, the platform level is on the topmost floor, consisting of two sheltered side platforms along a double tracked line; there is a single concourse housing ticketing facilities between the ground level and the platform level. The design is similar to that of most other stations on the line, with multi-tiered roofs supported by latticed frames, and white plastered walls and pillars. All levels are linked by stairways and escalators.
